Hunter Biden has missed the midnight deadline to provide records on his overseas business dealings and influence peddling to the House Oversight Committee.
The next step would be for the Oversight Committee to issue a subpoena.
House Oversight Committee Chair, James Comer (R-KY), is requesting similar documents from Joe Biden’s brother James and Hunter Biden’s business partner, Eric Schwerin.
Comer has accused the Bidens of influence peddling, saying he doesn’t know what specialty services Hunter or James provided in those countries to receive millions in return.
News Nation reported (Excerpt):
WASHINGTON (NewsNation) — The House Oversight Committee is inching closer to subpoenaing President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, Wednesday morning as the Bidens are past the deadline set by the committee to provide records related to their family business dealings overseas in Ukraine and China.
Overnight, the president’s son and brother, James Biden, missed the panel’s deadline to turn over records on his foreign business dealings. The committee first made the request on Feb. 9.
The chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), accused the Bidens of influence peddling, saying he doesn’t know what specialty services Hunter or James provided in those countries to receive millions in return.
The committee also wants to know whether the president is aware of the potential family businesses with these countries.
A spokesperson for the committee told NewsNation that Hunter and his uncle James Biden’s attorneys have sent letters acknowledging the requests, but have not provided materials themselves.
The committee is, however, in contact with the attorney for one of their business associates, Eric Schwerin, and expects him to start producing documents soon. It has also recently asked for testimony from Schwerin.
