The GOP is only going to have a slight majority in the House after the midterm elections, but that doesn’t mean that they are not going to follow through on their promise regarding an investigation into Hunter Biden.
The Republican-led House Oversight Committee is saying that they plan to subpoena Hunter but not President Joe Biden over his fraudulent overseas dealings in business.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said that his party intends to use its new power to find Hunter guilty of shady dealing.
“There’s no plans to subpoena Joe Biden. There are plans to subpoena Hunter Biden,” Comer said. But those plans do not mean that the president won’t be subpoenaed in the future after Hunter’s activities have been fully uncovered.
Comer let reporters know that the Committee is investigating whether the president was involved in the family business or not. He said that the legalities of it all are complicated when considering giving a subpoena to a sitting president.
“This committee will evaluate whether this president is compromised or swayed by foreign dollars,” Comer said, adding “this is an investigation of Joe Biden.”
The president remains firm on denying any involvement in his son’s business dealing, but documents seem to contradict his claims. According to reports from whistleblowers, Biden was aware of his son’s business arrangements and was involved with him in them.
Some in the GOP have warned their colleagues not to pursue “hyper-partisan” tactics in the investigation of Hunter Biden. But Comer promised to “pursue all avenues” of wrongdoing doing this probe into the whole Biden family. He said this is a top priority for the Republican Party. The Kentucky representative did say that they want to bring down Biden and Hunter would be icing on the cake.
“We’re not trying to prove Hunter Biden is a bad actor. He is,” Comer said, adding “our investigation is of Joe Biden.”
