Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., emphasized his goal to have Hunter Biden testify before Congress regarding allegations of financial impropriety by members of the Biden family during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. Speaking on “Newsline,” Biggs, a member of both the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, stressed the need for Hunter Biden to testify despite the possibility of invoking the Fifth Amendment. He argued that the Biden family benefited from questionable dealings, and it’s essential to investigate these matters.
Recently, Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., announced an impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden and his family, focusing on potential influence peddling and bribery allegations from foreign entities during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. Biggs suggested that the investigation could broaden in scope, as the inquiry grants more power and authority to delve into potential high crimes and misdemeanors.
Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, R-Ky., disclosed plans for the committee’s first impeachment inquiry hearing, scheduled for September 28. Subpoenas for bank records of two Biden family members are also on the agenda. Comer stated that these records are crucial for understanding potential corruption and abuse of public office.
Biggs emphasized that the inquiry would provide House GOP Oversight Committee members with increased access to subpoenas for witnesses and documents, potentially allowing them to summon Hunter Biden for questioning. James Biden, President Biden’s brother, may also be called to testify. Legal experts are expected to testify about possible criminal activities indicated in the evidence gathered by the committee.
