Did anyone really think Hunter Biden was just going to play ball?
Wednesday, February 22nd has come and gone and that means Hunter Biden, James Biden and Eric Schwerin, failed to deliver key documents and records requested by Rep. James Comer (R-KY) and the GOP-led House Oversight Committee.
Hunter’s attorney Abbe Lowell is still refusing to provide the records; an Oversight Committee spokesperson provided a comment to the New York Post.
“We have received correspondence from the attorneys representing Hunter Biden and James Biden,” the spokesperson told The Post. “We are also in contact with Eric Schwerin’s attorney and expect him to start producing documents to the Oversight Committee soon.”
Why do they still expect them to produce anything?
Back on February 8th, Comer blasted the Biden family for influence peddling.
“Biden family members attempted to sell access around the world, including individuals who were connected to the Chinese Communist Party, to enrich themselves to the detriment of American interests,” the lawmaker said. “If President Biden is compromised by deals with foreign adversaries and they are impacting his decision making, this is a threat to national security.”
Comer wants records going back to Joe Biden’s inauguration as vice president in January 2009.
But will he ever get them? Lowell fired back at Comer after the comment.
“Peddling your own inaccurate and baseless conclusions under the guise of a real investigation, turns the Committee into ‘Wonderland’ and you into the Queen of Hearts shouting, ‘sentence first, verdict afterwards,’” said Lowell, referencing the children’s book “Alice in Wonderland.”
So, what’s next? According to some prominent GOP members, it’s subpoena time.
Committee member Rep. Pat Fallon (R-TX) told Fox News that a subpoena order would be a “last resort,” but said, “I think we’re really close to it frankly.”
How long can the Biden family avoid this showdown?
