The House Oversight Committee plans to hold its first hearing on the impeachment inquiry into President Biden on Thursday, September 28.
Committee Chairman James Comer, R-Ky., also plans to subpoena the personal bank records of Hunter Biden, President Biden’s son, and James Biden, the president’s brother, according to a committee aide.
“The hearing will focus on the constitutional and legal issues surrounding the president’s involvement in corruption and abuse of public office,” a commission spokesperson said. “The Committee also intends to subpoena the personal and business banking records of Hunter and James Biden as early as this week. The Oversight Committee will continue to follow the evidence and financial trail to ensure transparency and accountability that the Americans demand from their government.”
White House spokesman Ian Sams dismissed the hearing, calling it a distraction from lingering divisions among House Republicans.
“Extreme House Republicans are already telegraphing their plans in an attempt to distract from their own chaotic inability to govern and its impacts on the country,” Sams said in a statement. “Holding a political hearing in the final days before they can shut down the government reveals their true priorities: For them, baseless personal attacks on President Biden are more important than preventing a government shutdown and the pain that comes with it. would inflict on American families.”
