Freedom Caucus chief Scott Perry hopes GOP subpoenas Hunter Biden

A key House Republican said he is hopeful his party will press deeply into the issues of President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, in what he hopes will be a Congress full of subpoenas to hold the Biden administration accountable.

Rep. Scott Perry, the Pennsylvania Republican who chairs the conservative House Freedom Caucus, predicts that the House’s new Republican majority will move aggressively on subpoenas and oversight, given Democratic control of the Senate and White House.

“There is a new sheriff in town who will be led by Jim Jordan. I think you’re going to see a lot of subpoenas,” Perry told Benny Johnson on his podcast, referring to the Ohio Republican and Freedom Caucus member who now chairs both the House Judiciary Committee and a new select panel on the “militarization of the federal government.” ”.

Mr. Perry added: “There is not going to be a lot of legislation that gets passed in the House and gets passed [Senate Democratic Majority Leader Charles] Schumer to Biden, but what we can do is the oversight that the legislature requires and that requires people to speak up. They won’t give us documents, but they won’t be able to avoid going in and talking.”

Mr. Perry, who was recently appointed to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, said he had “all confidence” that a figure who will be challenged by Republicans is Tony Bobulinski, a former business associate of Hunter Biden.

The lawmaker said he also hopes the party will move to subpoena Biden himself. Republicans say they will make it a priority to investigate the president’s son for his past private business dealings with shadowy entities in countries including Ukraine and China.
The Republican Party said its investigation will look into possible “influence peddling” and national security risks related to the young Biden.

House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman James Comer, a Kentucky Republican, said he plans to coordinate with Mr. Jordan on administration oversight.
