GOP lawmakers announce witness list for first impeachment hearing

Republican lawmakers will hold the first impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden this week and have announced the names of three witnesses who will provide testimony.

The hearing, which is titled “The Basis for an Impeachment Inquiry of President Joseph R. Biden, Jr.,” will be held on Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m. ET at the Rayburn House Office Building, House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.) announced on Monday.

The hearing “will examine the value of an impeachment inquiry and present evidence House Republicans have uncovered to date regarding President Joe Biden’s knowledge of and role in his family’s domestic and international business practices.”

Appearing as witnesses will be forensic accountant Bruce Dubinsky, former Assistant Attorney General Eileen O’Connor, and Professor Jonathan Turley, an expert in constitutional law, the House Oversight Committee announced.

“Since January, House Committees on Oversight and Accountability, Judiciary, and Ways and Means have uncovered an overwhelming amount of evidence showing President Joe Biden abused his public office for his family’s financial gain. Thousands of pages of financial records, emails, texts, testimony from credible IRS whistleblowers, and a transcribed interview with Biden family business associate Devon Archer all reveal that Joe Biden allowed his family to sell him as ‘the brand’ around the world to enrich the Biden family. Joe Biden showed up on at least two dozen occasions to send signals of access, influence, and power to those who were paying the Bidens,” Chairman Comer said in a statement.

As the founder of Dubinsky Consulting, Dubinsky “has accumulated over 40 years of financial investigative and dispute consulting experience and has served as an expert witness over 100 times and has testified in over 80 trials, including trials involving criminal and civil financial fraud.”

During her six years at DOJ-Tax, O’Connor  “supervised DOJ litigation of civil, criminal, trial, and appellate tax cases,” the statement read.

Turley, the Shapiro Chair for Public Interest Law at George Washington University Law School is a “nationally recognized legal scholar who has published work in areas ranging from constitutional law to legal theory,” and is a frequent contributor to Fox News.

“Based on the evidence, Congress has a duty to open an impeachment inquiry into President Biden’s corruption. Americans demand and deserve answers, transparency, and accountability for this abuse of public office. This week, the House Oversight Committee will present evidence uncovered to date and hear from legal and financial experts about crimes the Bidens may have committed as they brought in millions at the expense of U.S. interests,” the Oversight Committee statement read.

Last week, the White House slammed the Republican oversight into a man who some have likened to the patriarch of a crime family.

“Extreme House Republicans are already telegraphing their plans to try to distract from their own chaotic inability to govern and the impacts of it on the country,” said White House spokesperson Ian Sams in a statement to media outlets.

“Staging a political stunt hearing in the waning days before they may shut down the government reveals their true priorities: to them, baseless personal attacks on President Biden are more important than preventing a government shutdown and the pain it would inflict on American families,” Sams added.
