House Oversight Chair James Comer is issuing more subpoenas, this time related to his investigation into President Biden’s handling of classified documents.
Comer (R-Ky.) subpoenaed former White House counsel Dana Remus on Monday, as well as a request for transcribed interviews with four White House employees. In a letter to an attorney for Remus, Comer and Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) link Biden’s handling of classified documents to the larger GOP Biden impeachment investigation, which centers around his family’s business deals.
Republicans are months into that probe. And while they have 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.
Attorney General Merrick Garland tapped Robert Hur to serve as special counsel for an investigation into Biden’s handling of classified documents, which were first found at the Penn Biden Center.
The White House said last month that Biden had taken part in an interview as part of the investigation.
