(TheRedWire.com) – House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued a subpoena to gain access to decades of bank records from Hunter Biden’s associates.
Information regarding the subpoena was first included in a letter sent by Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.). The ranking member of the Oversight committee stated that the members of the minority party in the committee had received “mere hours of notice” instead of the standard 48 hours of notice before the subpoena was issued. He further added that according to the subpoena Bank of America would need to generate “all financial records” from the last 14 years, dating back to January 20, 2009, for three private citizens.
One of the three members targeted by the subpoena is John R. Walker, who allegedly “formed a joint venture with CEFC China executives,” which is a “now-bankrupt Chinese energy conglomerate.”
Raskin stated that Comer with his request had gained access to Walker’s private financial information that far exceeded his connection to Hunter Biden or CEFC. For reference, some of the information obtained include bank statements from Walker’s joint account with his wife.
A spokesperson for the House Oversight Committee also confirmed the subpoena stating that the financial records were fundamental in the probe into the Biden family’s “business schemes.” However, Rasking has claimed that the subpoena had gone “wildly overboard” and it makes it appear that the probe is not focused on “informing public legislation” but is instead focused on “political opposition research on behalf of former President Trump.”
