WASHINGTON – The United States (US) House of Representatives Oversight Committee will hold the first hearing of the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden on September 28. The Oversight Committee also plans to issue subpoenas for the bank records of two members of the president’s family.
This was stated by panel chairman James Comer. Comer said the hearing would be a “refresher” of the information he and fellow Republican lawmakers gathered during their investigation into foreign business dealings conducted by Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s son, and James Biden, brother president.
“The trial is also expected to feature testimony from legal experts regarding possible criminality based on the evidence collected,” he said as quoted by CBS News, Wednesday (20/9/2023).
Once details of the impeachment inquiry are finalized, Comer also plans to issue subpoenas for Hunter Biden and James Biden’s personal bank records as soon as this week.
“Everyone in America knows why we need those bank records, and they can provide them or we’ll see them in court,” the Kentucky Republican told reporters on Capitol Hill.
Comer said his role in the months before the impeachment inquiry opened was to follow the money and report on it – trying to determine how much money the Bidens received, why they received it, and what Joe Biden’s role was in it.
“That’s been my job from the start and I hope so,” he said.
US Rep. Tom Emmer, the third Republican in the House, said the impeachment inquiry was about providing answers for the American people.
“No more, no less,” he stressed.
