FIRST ON FOX: The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed Hunter Biden, James Biden and their business associate Rob Walker for testimony before the panel as part of its investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings, Fox News Digital has learned.
The committee also requested transcribed interviews from James Biden’s wife Sara Biden; President Biden’s daughter-in-law, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s son Beau who later was romantically involved with Hunter; Hallie Biden's older sister Elizabeth Secundy; and Hunter Biden's wife, Melissa Cohen.
Financial records the committee subpoenaed earlier this year revealed that members of the Biden family, including Hallie Biden and Sara Biden, received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Walker. Those records revealed that Hallie Biden received a payment from Walker’s account — Robinson Walker, LLC — in March 2017 totaling $25,000.
Walker worked on a joint-venture called Sinohawk Holdings, which was meant to be a partnership with Chinese energy firm CEFC.
The committee also requested a transcribed interview with Hunter Biden’s former business associate Tony Bobulinski, who was also involved in Sinohawk Holdings.
"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. 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," House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said. "Unlike the many lies President Biden told the American people about his family’s business schemes, bank records don’t lie. 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."
He added: "The House Oversight Committee, along with the Committees on Judiciary and Ways and Means, will continue to follow the facts and deliver the transparency and accountability that the American people demand and deserve."
The subpoenas come as part of the committee’s months-long investigation into the Biden family's business dealings and whether President Biden benefited from or was involved in his family’s business ventures.
The investigation, led by Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., also feeds into the broader House impeachment inquiry against President Biden. That inquiry is being led by Comer, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith, R-Mo.... (Read more)
