On Monday, House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.) issued a subpoena to former White House Counsel Dana Remus to appear for a deposition related to President Joe Biden’s mishandling of classified documents. In addition, Chairman Comer is seeking transcribed interviews with four White House employees familiar with President Biden’s mishandling of classified material.
“Facts continue to emerge showing that the White House’s narrative of President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents doesn’t add up,” said Chairman Comer. “It is imperative to learn whether President Biden retained sensitive documents related to any countries involving his family’s foreign business dealings that brought in millions for the Biden family. The Oversight Committee looks forward to hearing directly from Dana Remus and other central figures to further our investigation into President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents and determine whether our national security has been compromised.”
The House Oversight Committee has obtained financial records revealing the Biden family and associates received significant payments from entities in China, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Romania. On October 11, the House Oversight Committee released information revealing the White House and President Biden’s attorney omitted important information about the discovery of classified materials at Penn Biden Center. The Committee seeks to further understand why President Biden retained certain classified documents, if such information related to any of his family’s foreign business transactions, and why so many White House officials were involved in obtaining personal materials on behalf of President Biden.
“President Biden’s mishandling of classified documents, including the apparently unauthorized possession of classified material at a Washington, D.C. private office and in the garage of his Delaware residence, raise serious concerns about his mishandling of sensitive intelligence information and his Department of Justice’s double standard of justice. Today’s subpoena and transcribed interview requests represent another step in holding President Biden and the DOJ accountable,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
“This is just the latest example of President Biden’s willingness to skirt the law in order to hide the truth. If the President himself was illegally holding classified material for some purpose, the American people deserve to know what that purpose is – and whether it constitutes an abuse of office. His Administration hasn’t hesitated to scrutinize political opponents’ use of classified materials, and he should be held to the same standard,” said Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.).
