Hunter Biden to Be Subpoenaed

  • Flyover Country, The Hill

In Brief: 

The Republicans say they have uncovered evidence of conspiracy to defraud the U.S., wire fraud, violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, money laundering, tax evasion and other crimes committed by Hunter and Joe Biden.

During a press conference, Rep. James Comer said he believed the Oversight Committee has lost much of its credibility in recent years, casting blame on California Rep. Adam Schiff.

The Background: 

Reps. James Comer (R-KY) and Jim Jordan (R-OH), incoming chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, leveled the accusations as they announced that their first order of business will be investigating the Biden family.

Comer said, “Our investigation is about Joe Biden. Was Joe Biden directly involved with Hunter Biden’s business deals and is he compromised? That’s our investigation. We’re not trying to prove Hunter Biden is a bad actor. He is.”

Comer added, “Joe Biden told the American people he had nothing to do with and never had conversations with his family about their business dealings. That was a lie. To be clear, Joe Biden is the ‘big guy.'” His statement was in reference to emails found on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop concerning his business deals with China, in which Hunter referred to someone called “the big guy.” 

The New York Post reports online business records indicate the first son still holds a 10% stake in BHR Partners, a Chinese state-backed private equity firm that manages $2.1 billion in assets and takes a prominent role in acquiring overseas assets.

There are currently no plans to subpoena President Biden, only his son, Hunter.
