In a turn of events, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee hints at possibly subpoenaing the Biden family, including President Joe Biden.

The committee under Chairman James Comer is probing into foreign funds received by Hunter Biden and associates during Joe Biden’s vice presidential tenure.

Interestingly, a memo from the committee showcases the millions of dollars involved. But there’s a catch: it has yet to target the Biden family directly with bank record subpoenas.

Notably, the process won’t be immediate. Comer expressed a desire to interview a few more associates, emphasizing the rigorous path ahead. Recalling the past, Comer drew parallels with the challenges faced when Democrats sought former President Trump’s financial details.

White House spokesperson Ian Sams, however, pushed back. He highlighted that despite investigations, Republicans have failed to provide concrete evidence against Biden, accusing them of fostering baseless political attacks for media attention.

The question is, will this investigation offer clarity or continue to fuel the political divide?
