James Biden signals willingness to cooperate in brother’s impeachment probe, Comer reveals
"So we have several specific questions for James Biden. And yes, he will be an absolutely crucial witness to our investigation and help us continue to connect the dots as to what exactly the Biden family was doing to receive millions of millions of dollars from our enemies around the world," Comer said.
Attorneys representing President Joe Biden's brother, James, have signaled the House Oversight Committee that he will sit for an interview as part of that panel's ongoing investigation of the first family, Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., confirmed on Friday.
"[W]e have heard from James Biden's attorney, and they have signaled that he will come and answer questions in front of the House Oversight Committee, and we're very appreciative of that look forward to that," the Kentucky Republican said on the "Just the News, No Noise" television show.
"We have as you know, the IRS notes that the IRS whistleblowers turned over from his interview with the FBI. We also have the bank records that I've subpoenaed," he continued. "So we have several specific questions for James Biden. And yes, he will be an absolutely crucial witness to our investigation and help us continue to connect the dots as to what exactly the Biden family was doing to receive millions of millions of dollars from our enemies around the world."
Prior to Comer's appearance on the show, the committee announced that it had received a letter from the White House signaling it did not intend to cooperate with the litany of records requests from the committee and would seek to prevent the Bidens and their associates from testifying.
"This obstruction does not deter us, and we will continue to follow the facts and hold President Biden accountable to the American people," the committee asserted in a statement. Comer, for his part, was optimistic that the committee would ultimately be able to interview every relevant figure in its investigation.
"I think everybody that we've requested will come in," he said. "The White House is has apparently sent a letter in the last few minutes – they always do something on a Friday – saying that they don't ... agree with having to bring the staff over over the classified documents over their mishandling classified documents."
"The reason we want the president's staff to answer questions about his mishandling of classified documents is his timeline doesn't match up with what our transcribed interviews, with some of his staff in the past have said, with respect to when they discovered the classified documents," Comer went on. "And as you know, we have questions about which countries were involved in those classified documents, because we're still trying to figure out what the Biden family did to receive all that money."
"So I believe that all these people will come in. We're we've got speaker [Mike] Johnson has made it clear to both Jim Jordan and myself that anyone who doesn't honor a subpoena will get a loud and clear message from Congress," he concluded.
