"Comer, in the subpoena, says Remus had 'knowledge of why White House personnel began to visit with frequency Penn Biden Center in 2022, where classified materials, including materials related to Ukraine, were later discovered,'" according to the Hill.
"Classified documents stemming from Biden’s time as vice president have been found at his Wilmington, Del., residence and at a University of Pennsylvania office in Washington, D.C., that Biden used after the end of the Obama administration," it added.

"Comer and Jordan also requested an interview with Annie Tomasini, a senior Biden aide and director of Oval Office Operations who took 'inventory' of Biden's documents at the Penn Biden Center over a year before they were said to be found. Tomasini is a close friend of the Biden family, and Hunter Biden," Fox News reported.
"They also requested an interview with Anthony Bernal, a senior advisor in First Lady Jill Biden’s office and Ashley Williams, a special assistant to the president and deputy director of Oval Office Operations; and Katharine," it continued.

"The focus is not only on the mishandling of these documents but also on the potential compromise of national security," Trending Politics reported.
"The Oversight Committee had previously uncovered financial records indicating significant payments to the Biden family and associates from entities in China, Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, and Romania," it noted.
The investigation is in addition to recent subpoenas for both first son Hunter Biden and the president's brother James Biden.
The expanded investigation signals that Republicans on the committee are ramping up efforts ahead of the 2024 election.
Despite unlikely numbers to impeach Biden, the evidence could make his reelection more difficult next year in a likely rematch against former President Donald Trump.
