Hunter Biden denies House panel request for banking records

 February 10, 2023

Hunter Biden has denied the House Oversight Committee's demand for banking and communications records, citing no "oversight basis."

"Hunter Biden’s very expensive and high-powered legal team denied House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer’s (R-KY) letter demanding the president’s son disclose troves of documents and communications relevant to the investigation into the Biden family for wire fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering, among six other potential violations," reported Breitbart.

"Attorney Abbe Lowell, who represents high-profile individuals engulfed in political scandals, such as Bill Clinton and Jared Kushner, told Comer that his demands lacked 'legitimate legislative and oversight basis' to request such relevant information," according to Breitbart News.

Comer asked Hunter and James Biden, and the family's business partner Eric Schwerin, to disclose both classified and unclassified documents, records, and communications between business associates and family members. The demand included President Joe Biden.

However, Attorney Abbe Lowell rejected Comer's request, alleging a lack of legitimacy.

"Rather than engage with you over a back-and-forth letter writing campaigns or any formal proceedings, I would offer to sit with you and your staff… to see whether Mr. Biden has information that may inform some legitimate legislative purpose and be helpful to the Committee," Lowell answered the request.

Mike Davis, founder and president of the pro-Trump Article III Project and former Chief Counsel for Nominations to Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, said Comer's demands are clearly legitimate.

"There is clear evidence President Biden, his son Hunter, and Joe’s brother James were corruptly on the payrolls of Chinese and Ukrainian oligarchs," Davis said. "Investigating whether the President of the United States is compromised — especially involving America’s most serious overseas challenges — is clearly within Congress’s constitutional oversight responsibilities."

"Hunter Biden is not above the law, and Congress should not tolerate his contempt," David added.
