House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) said that lawyers for Hunter Biden are intimidating whistleblowers in the investigation.
"In communication with our witnesses and with people who are cooperating from a subpoena standpoint, we know that they have been contacted by the attorneys for Hunter Biden," Comer said in an interview on "America Reports."
"We feel that this is really close to crossing the line. Obviously, their objective in my opinion, is witness intimidation. This will not stand," he added.

The accusations from the whistleblowers could also reach far beyond the first son's tax problems.
"The whistleblower’s accusations thus extend far beyond the tax case against Hunter Biden. Although unraveling the scandal will start there, it won’t end there," the Federalist noted.
"With the whistleblower’s attorneys now able to coordinate directly with the House Ways and Means Committee, the timeframe for exposing those complicit in covering for the Bidens just shrunk substantially," it added.
The longtime concerns over Hunter Biden may be coming to actual charges in the days ahead as the information is revealed. If so, the IRS charges could further add to problems for President Joe Biden as he seeks to be elected to a second term in office.
