(TheRedWire.com) – On Tuesday, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chair James Comer (R-Ky.) announced that the Treasury Department had agreed to provide them access to the financial records and reports related to the Biden family’s business accounts and their associates.
Previously, the request of the committee had been delayed. The report they are seeking access to would disclose any suspicious activity relating to the business activities of the president’s son Hunter Biden and the president’s brother James Biden. The reports are going to be used as part of the probe into the Biden family.
The Treasury has conceded to allow the committee access to an “in-camera” review of the reports. This means that the panel will have some limits to their access. The committee has also postponed a scheduled transcribed interview that had been scheduled for this week following this decision.
Comer revealed that after two months, the Treasury Department had agreed to give them access to the suspicious reports generated on the Biden family’s business. However, he added that they should not have to threaten with a hearing in order to collaborate with the Treasure. He continued to say that for over two decades, Congress had been granted access to reports, but that the Biden administration had changed those rules as they tried to limit access to the reports.
President Biden has maintained that he is in no way involved with his son’s business and that the White House investigations under the GOP have been “politically motivated” and based on rebuffed conspiracy theories.
