On the cusp of a major wave of subpoenas, House Oversight and Accountability Committee Chairman James Comer vowed Tuesday night to hold recalcitrant witnesses in contempt of Congress and to eventually compel President Joe Biden to submit to an interview.

"You know, we're gonna start with the family," Comer told the "Just the News, No Noise" television show during a wide-ranging interview. "We have to ask the family specific questions. And then in the end, the very last person we'll interview will obviously be the President of the United States."

The man leading the impeachment inquiry said the next phase of the investigation will focus on pressing Biden family members and associates about the complex movement of foreign monies from Ukraine, Russia, Romania, China, and Kazakhstan through a matrix of limited liability companies and bank accounts. A fundamental question, he added, is "what role did Joe play in all of this?"


"We['re] gonna go to (Speaker) Mike Johnson's office and knock on the door and demand that we try to hold these people in contempt of Congress," Comer said. "We have proven that there are a lot of questions that they need to answer. We've proven that this is a national security crisis. We've proven that the White House has lied time and time again about their knowledge and involvement in this shady influence peddling scheme. 

"We expect people to come to Congress, and if they don't, then I think they should be held in contempt. And I believe that a majority of the Republican caucus would agree with me," he added.

Grassley’s Bombshells Show House Investigators Exactly Where To Aim Their Next Biden Subpoenas

Grassley may not be able to force the DOJ and FBI to provide answers or documents, but the House can — and it should immediately.


The chair of the House Oversight Committee issued a slew of subpoenas on Wednesday, including to Hunter Biden and James Biden. Additional subpoenas, as well as requests for transcribed interviews, were served on other Biden family members and business associates. These investigative steps are solid, but the House committees charged with the Joe Biden impeachment inquiry need to issue subpoenas for the witnesses and documents Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, not-so-subtly suggested late last month.

“I’ve obtained the names of 25 DOJ and FBI personnel to interview at a future date,” Grassley wrote in a late-October letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray concerning the latest details the Iowa senator uncovered related to obstruction of the Biden-family corruption investigation. While the House Oversight Committee is understandably focused on unraveling the extent of foreign influence-peddling, the House should not ignore the second half of the scandal: the DOJ, FBI, and now the Biden administration’s cover-up of the scandal and their cover-up of the cover-up.:snip:
