Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden failed to provide all relevant documents about his overseas business dealings to the House Oversight Committee by the midnight deadline Wednesday.
The New York Post reports that the younger Biden’s failure to meet the deadline could lead to a subpoena and a subsequent legal battle. According to a spokesman for the committee, Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell is still refusing to hand over the records that were requested by Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.). Comer has also requested documents from Joe Biden’s brother James Biden, as well as Hunter’s former business associate Eric Schwerin.
“We have received correspondence from the attorneys representing Hunter Biden and James Biden,” said the spokesman. “We are also in contact with Eric Schwerin’s attorney and expect him to start producing documents to the Oversight Committee soon.”
Comer had previously said on February 8th that these documents could reveal the extent of the Biden family’s corruption, and the fact that “the Biden family business model is built on Joe Biden’s political career and connections.”
“Biden family members attempted to sell access around the world, including individuals who were connected to the Chinese Communist Party, to enrich themselves to the detriment of American interests,” said Comer. “If President Biden is compromised by deals with foreign adversaries and they are impacting his decision making, this is a threat to national security.”
