Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are taking up a resolution Tuesday that could force the release of documents related to Hunter Biden that they say the Biden administration is wrongly withholding from the committee’s investigation.
The Republicans will take up Resolution 1243, which says that “the President is requested to transmit to the House of Representatives, not later than 14 days after the adoption of this resolution, copies of any document, record, report, memo, correspondence, or other communication in his possession” that relates to Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s son. It demands the same documentation for a list of companies or bank accounts that may be related.
Whether any Democrats will support the resolution remains to be seen.
Comer’s office said that, since Biden took office, the U.S. Treasury Department “changed its policy for releasing Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) to Congress under the Bank Secrecy Act.”
