House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan wrote a fact checking letter to Hunter Biden’s attorney over error filled statement on the investigation of the shady drug addict son of Joe Biden. They sent a letter to Abbe D. Lowell, Hunter Biden’s defense attorney, disputing the false claims he spewed. Lowell challenged the subpoena power of the committees and the investigation into The Big Guy.
“Your recent letter makes several baseless and misleading assertions that we are compelled to clarify. It implies that the Committees have no valid legislative purpose for these subpoenas. Any such assertion is incorrect.”
“You also suggest that there is no evidence to support a finding that Mr. Biden’s business dealings implicate the official actions of his father. This is contrary to the facts already established through the investigation.”
Jordan and Comer laid out evidence pertaining to the impeachment inquiry. They pointed to the testimony of Hunter’s former business partner, Devon Archer who testified that Joe Biden joined business meetings by telephone. Archer and Biden were both board members of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, a company that paid Hunter Biden over $80,000 per month according to bank records.
Archer further recalled how the Biden family “brand” protected Burisma from criminal prosecution.
The House Ways and Means, Judiciary and Oversight Committees are leading the impeachment inquiry into President Biden based on his alleged role in Hunter Biden’s foreign business ventures and testimony from two IRS whistleblowers accusing Department of Justice (DOJ) officials of giving Hunter Biden special treatment during its ongoing criminal probe into his taxes and firearm possession.
To date, the committees have uncovered more than $24 million received by Biden family members and business associates from foreign sources.
Comer has released additional bank records showing how $40,000 of money originating in China ended up in Joe Biden’s bank account. The $40,000 check was sent to Joe Biden by his sister-in-law Sara Biden, the wife of Hunter Biden’s uncle and business partner James Biden, who was subpoenaed alongside Hunter Biden to appear for a closed-door deposition in December.

Sara Biden classified the check as a loan repayment and the White House insists Joe Biden received the money as a loan repayment.
Rob Walker, another former business associate of Hunter Biden, told the FBI in 2020 that Joe Biden met with his son’s Chinese business associates shortly after his vice presidency, according to a transcript of his FBI interview released by the Ways and Means Committee. Walker was also subpoenaed by the Oversight Committee last month to appear for a deposition. (RELATED: Here’s All The Evidence Connecting Joe Biden To Hunter Biden’s Foreign Business Dealings)
Lowell wrote a letter Tuesday to the Republicans offering to have Hunter Biden testify publicly and skip the deposition. Comer, Jordan and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith countered with a demand for the first son to conduct the deposition before testifying publicly.
“Your letter is merely an extension of your coordinated campaign to discredit the allegations against Mr. Biden, distort the truth, and attack the integrity of witnesses against Mr.Biden,” the lawmakers added.
