House Oversight Chair James Comer is issuing another round of subpoenas as part of a sweeping impeachment inquiry aimed at President Joe Biden.
It’s the second tranche to come from the panel in as many days, after Comer (R-Ky.) issued subpoenas for the president’s son, Hunter, and brother, James, as well as a business associate of Hunter Biden’s on Wednesday.
House Republicans are months into their investigation, which was turned into an impeachment inquiry in September. And while they’ve uncovered examples of Hunter Biden trying to use his last name to further his business deals — and poked holes in some of Biden and the White House’s previous statements — they’ve struggled to find a smoking gun that would link Joe Biden’s official decisions to his family’s business deals.
Who Comer issued subpoenas for on Thursday:
Business associate Eric Schwerin
Business associate Mervyn Yan
Gallerist George Bergès
Elizabeth Naftali, who reportedly bought a Hunter Biden painting
