This Needs To Be Done Before Bidens Subpoenaed?

On Thursday, Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., spoke with Newsmax, stating that the House Committee on Oversight and Accountability, which he oversees, must first complete its examination of corruption claims involving President Joe Biden before summoning Biden and his son Hunter Biden for questioning.

Comer earlier hinted that the Bidens would eventually be summoned to appear before the committee. However, during his appearance on “The Chris Salcedo Show,” he emphasized that further evidence must be gathered to solidify their case.

“We have several more associates to interview,” noted Comer. “Our aim is to obtain more bank records related to certain shell companies. Once that’s accomplished, I believe our argument will be well-founded. The aim is for them to share their records and exhibit transparency to the nation.

“It’s crucial to recall Biden’s commitment to being the most transparent president in U.S. history. Biden was supportive when Democrats made public Donald Trump’s tax details.

“Our primary objective is to review certain bank records, which, we suspect, might shed light on whether Joe Biden directly benefited from questionable payments from foreign entities directed at several of his family members. That’s our current direction.”

It’s rare for a sitting U.S. president to testify before Congress. Historically, only Abraham Lincoln (Feb. 13, 1862) and Gerald Ford (Oct. 17, 1974) have appeared before House panels, while Woodrow Wilson (Aug. 19, 1919) testified before a Senate committee. Notably, despite multiple attempts by Democrats, Donald Trump did not provide testimony during his two impeachment processes or the House committee’s probe into the events of Jan. 6, 2021.

Comer pointed out the challenges, saying, “Getting a sitting U.S. president to appear before a committee is indeed challenging. However, our goal remains to acquire the bank records and invite members of the Biden family to the committee to provide answers. That’s our ongoing endeavor.”
