The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed banks requesting they release the financial information of Biden family associates.

According to Fox News, the Oversight Committee has subpoenaed JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, HSBC U.S.A N.A., and Cathay Bank, in addition to Hunter Biden’s Former business associate Mervyn Yan for financial records.

Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.), ranking Democrat on the Oversight Committee, complained that the Committee’s chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), tried to withhold information related to the investigation from the Committee’s Democrats.

However, in a statement to Fox News, Comer questioned why Raskin was publicly disclosing the subpoenas.

Comer stated Raskin had exposed the Subpoenas in a “cheap attempt” to dissuade “cooperation from other witnesses.”

The Kentucky Republican insisted Raskin’s “antics with the first bank Subpoena” should cause “the American people and media” to query what information Raskin was attempting to hide, adding that people shouldn’t be fooled by Raskin’s games.

“We have bank records, and the facts are not good for the Biden family,” Comer concluded.

On Thursday (April 6), Democratic staff on the Oversight Committee sent a memo to members accusing Republicans on the Committee of conducting the investigation behind a “veil of secrecy.”

The memo states that despite Republicans investing considerable time and resources into investigations into Biden, they “have failed to yield any evidence of misconduct by President Biden.”

The memo notes that Comer has sent six subpoenas requesting financial records but that the failure to publicize or inform Democrats of these Subpoenas has meant some targets are unaware Republicans are seeking their documents.
