The President Biden impeachment probe has gained momentum with the House selecting its first three witnesses.
House Republicans said Monday that a forensic accountant, a legal scholar, and a former assistant attorney general for the Department of Justice’s tax division will be the witnesses at its first hearing on the President Joe Biden impeachment inquiry.
On Monday, House Oversight Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) said that Republican lawmakers had uncovered “an overwhelming amount” of evidence that President Biden “abused his public office,” during his tenure as vice president in the Obama administration, for his family’s financial gain.
The hearing aims to establish what the president knew, and his role, in the foreign business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden.
The House investigations leading up to the impeachment inquiry hearings were conducted by three powerful committees: the Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means.
The witness list includes Bruce Dubinsky, a forensic accountant who founded Dubinsky Consulting; Eileen O’Connor, a former assistant attorney general for the Department of Justice Tax Division; and Prof. Jonathan Turley, a nationally recognized legal scholar from George Washington University Law School.
The hearing will take place at the Rayburn House Office Building on Thursday at
