The House Oversight Committee has obtained nearly all of Hunter Biden's banking records, according to committee chairman James Comer (R-KY).
The records are an important step that could lead to the first son testifying under oath before the committee, according to Comer's interview with Lou Dobbs.

“It’s been a long process because, Lou, he [Hunter Biden] has so many bank accounts,” Comer said, according to Breitbart News, explaining the complexity of the process. “He would have one shell company with a dozen bank accounts.”
“Because we got these bank accounts, we’re very close to bringing in the Bidens,” Comer said about demanding their testimony. “I would say it’s a matter of days before they get served.”

The request for Hunter Biden's banking records was approved in March. "The agreement came after Rep. James Comer, head of the Oversight and Accountability Committee, made several requests for the documents and had been rebuffed," USA Today reported at the time.
“After two months of dragging their feet, the Treasury Department is finally providing us with access to the suspicious activity reports for the Biden family and their associates’ business transactions,” stated in March.

New House Speaker Mike Johnson indicated that the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, closely related to his son Hunter's business deals, could soon move forward.
"We're the rule of law team. We don't use this for political partisan games like the Democrats have done and did against Donald Trump twice. We are going to follow the law and follow the Constitution, and I think we have a suspicion of where that may lead, but we're going to let the evidence speak for itself," he told FOX News' Maria Bartiromo.
"I look forward to rolling that out over the coming days and weeks and letting the American people see exactly why we're taking the next steps and where it's headed," he added.
The transactions could offer move information on allegations concerning deals the president made during his years as vice president that involved companies in Ukraine and China.
The investigation also continues as Biden seeks a second term in office, with the inquiry potentially hurting his chances at winning in 2024.
