The Republican-led House Oversight Committee subpoenaed several banks for the Biden family’s financial records.

Bank of America, HSBC USA N.A., JPMorgan Chase, and Cathay Bank were all subpoenaed as part of an investigation into the Biden family, according to a memo obtained by Politico.

RASKIN ACCUSES COMER OF WITHHOLDING INFORMATION AND MISREPRESENTING WITNESSES

Hunter Biden’s former business associate Mervyn Yan was also subpoenaed as part of the investigation. The subpoenas are asking for documents reaching back nearly 14 years.

The revelation was made by committee member Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD). He wrote a memo complaining that Republicans were withholding information about the investigation from the Democrats in the committee.

“Committee Republicans’ decision to conduct this probe behind a veil of secrecy runs counter to the Committee’s traditional commitment to transparency and raises serious questions about the integrity of the investigation,” he wrote.

“Further, Chairman Comer’s furtive actions have resulted in at least one misaddressed subpoena and the release of private citizens’ personal financial information that was compelled by Committee Republicans without any notice to the affected parties,” Raskin said.

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) bashed the Maryland Democrat in a response, saying he was improperly exposing investigative information in an attempt to hide the truth.

“Ranking Member Raskin has again disclosed Committee’s subpoenas in a cheap attempt to thwart cooperation from other witnesses,” Comer said in a statement to Fox News.

“Given his antics with the first bank subpoena, the American people and media should be asking what information Ranking Member Raskin is trying to hide this time. No one should be fooled by Ranking Member Raskin’s games. We have the bank records, and the facts are not good for the Biden family,” the chairman said.

Raskin released a letter on Thursday demanding that Democrats get equal access to information in the investigation.
