The White House has responded after the Republican-led House Oversight Committee issued subpoenas for serval members of Democrat President Joe Biden’s family.
On Wednesday, Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY) issued subpoenas for the Bidens to testify under oath before Congress in December.
Comer subpoenaed the president’s son Hunter and his brother James (Jim) Biden.
Longtime Biden family associate Rob Walker was also called to testify under oath.
The subpoenas are a major step forward in the GOP-led House impeachment inquiry into President Biden.
Joe Biden has repeatedly insisted that he was never in business with his Biden family.
However, mounting evidence suggests otherwise.
Comer wants to question Walker about his receipt of a $3 million payment,
That payment was later split between four Biden family members including Hunter, James, and Hallie (Joe Biden’s late son Beau’s wife and Hunter’s former lover).
The fourth cut of the payment was for an unidentified “Biden.”
Comer has also requested that several family members and whistleblower Tony Bobuliski appear before the committee.
The chairman didn’t issue subpoenas for Bobuliski or the other family members, however.
The family members asked to appear before the committee include Sara Biden (James Biden’s wife), Hallie Biden, Elizabeth Secundy (Hallie Biden’s sister), and Melissa Cohen (Hunter Biden’s current wife).
White House spokesman Ian Sams fired back at Comer over the requests.
“They’re all private citizens,” Sams posted on Twitter/X.
“He won’t be, but Comer should be ashamed of desperately resorting to nasty personal smears like this.”
Comer’s Wednesday subpoenas follow recent investigations into the Bidens’ shady foreign dealings.
In September, Comer issued subpoenas for the bank records of James and Hunter Biden.
Comer’s subpoena saw the Oversight Committee obtain pages of bank records that gave a far broader picture of the family’s foreign influence peddling schemes.
The bank records have provided evidence against Joe Biden that contradicts his past claims about his family business.
The records show direct financial links between the president and the Biden family business
Meanwhile, evidence emerging from the impeachment inquiry against President Biden is continuing to stack up.
