Republicans will also call in the WIFE of president’s son and his ex-lover Hallie for interviews as they ramp up probe
House Republicans plan to fire off subpoenas for the Biden family in a major escalation of their investigation into their foreign business deals.
Hunter Biden and James Biden, the president’s brother, and Biden family associate Rob Walker have been called in for depositions before the Oversight Committee – which has taken the lead on the Biden impeachment investigation.
The committee has requested Hunter Biden come in on December 13 and James Biden appear on December 6.
Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell said in a statement the president’s son would comply with the subpoena. He called it a ‘political stunt’ but said: ‘Nevertheless. Hunter is eager to have the opportunity, in a public forum and at the right time, to discuss these matters with the Committee.’
Committee Chair James Comer is also requesting transcribed interviews with Melissa Cohen, Hunter’s wife, Sara Biden, Frank’s wife, Hallie Biden, Hunter’s ex-girl friend and Beau Biden’s widow, Elizabeth Secundy, Hallie’s sister who Hunter is believed to have had a romantic relationship with while she was married, and Hunter associate Tony Bobulinski.
Comer says he has traced some $24 million from foreign actors to Biden family and Biden associate bank accounts. Through issuing subpoenas for bank records, the GOP-led committee says it has found 20 shell companies related to the Biden family, most of which were set up when Joe was vice president. The money was traced to foreign actors in China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and Kazakhstan.
