House Republicans will have access to President Biden’s foreign bank documents, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said.
Comer made the announcement during a televised appearance with Sean Hannity on Fox News late Monday. Comer says his committee reached an agreement with the Treasury Department to include documents about Biden and his family, including Hunter Biden.
“We just said the Treasury was going to give us access,” Comer told Hannity on Monday.
The Biden administration has yet to confirm such a move.

News of the deal came hours after Comer’s Oversight Committee subpoenaed more Bank of America bank records early Monday. The subpoenas targeted “all financial records” of three of Hunter Biden’s business associates from January 20, 2009 to the present day.
“The Oversight Committee has requested and obtained financial records related to influence peddling by the Biden family,” a committee spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “These documents strengthen our understanding of several areas of concern and open new avenues of investigation into the business schemes of the Biden family.”

Last month, Comer sent requests to President Biden’s brother and business partner Eric Schwerin, Hunter Biden, to ask Republicans whether members of the Biden family took advantage of Joe Biden’s tenure as vice president to “sell access to the entire world.”
The commission’s investigation comes as the federal investigation into Hunter Biden continues into its fifth year.

Hunter Biden has been under federal investigation since 2018 over his tax affairs — an investigation prompted in part by a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) on some foreign transactions. Those SARs involved funds from “China and other foreign nations,” according to sources familiar with the investigation.
Trump-appointed Delaware U.S. Attorney David Weiss is leading the investigation.
