The committee’s subpoenas requested that Hunter, James and Walker appear before the panel for testimony as part of its investigation into the Biden family’s alleged influence-peddling.
The subpoenas also requested transcribed interviews from James Biden’s wife, Sara Biden; President Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law Hallie Biden; and Hunter Biden’s current wife, Melissa Cohen.
The requests come after a bombshell report from the committee revealing bank documents that showed James and Sara Biden wrote Joe Biden a $40,000 check shortly after a Chinese energy company paid Hunter $400,000—effectively making good on a promise to remit 10% to the “big guy.”
Other financial records accumulated by the committee showed members of the Biden family—including Hunter, James, Hallie and Sara Biden—had received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Walker.
“The House Oversight Committee has followed the money and built a record of evidence revealing how Joe Biden knew, was involved, and benefited from his family’s influence peddling schemes,” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., said in a statement.
“Now, the House Oversight Committee is going to bring in members of the Biden family and their associates to question them on this record of evidence,” he added.
Comer went on to blast Joe Biden for dismissing the investigation into his family’s business deals.
“Unlike the many lies President Biden told the American people about his family’s business schemes, bank records don’t lie,” Comer said. “These records reveal how the Bidens sold Joe Biden around to the world to benefit the Biden family, including Joe Biden himself, to the detriment of U.S. interests.”
When asked about the subpoenas on Wednesday, the White House once again claimed House Republicans’ investigation has “turned up zero evidence of wrongdoing” by the president.
“Republicans continue to double down on a baseless, baseless smear campaign against the president and his family instead of being focused on the American people’s needs,” claimed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
