(TargetLiberty.org) – The House Oversight Committee is split on how important a closed-door interview with an FBI agent would be for the investigation into Hunter Biden and his foreign business dealings.
The Democrats and Republicans are divided on the matter, with Rep. Jamie Raskin, D-Md., one of the committee’s ranking members pushing for the release of the transcript in a recent letter sent to Rep. James Comer, R-Ky., who is the committee’s chair. Raskin has argued that the release of the interview would completely discredit the claims by House Republicans that the Department of Justice had influenced the investigation into Hunter Biden which ultimately led to his prosecution.
Republicans on the other hand have stated that Raskin’s claims that the Democratic minority had not been provided with a copy of the interview were nothing but a “baseless accusation.” The committee in a tweet stated that the Democrats needed to learn to look at their email before making such accusations, adding that a transcript had been sent to the Democrats shortly after the interview was completed, on the same day that the Republicans had received access to it.
They added that the transcript had gone through the normal process with the witness having reviewed it so that any necessary corrections can be made. As soon as that process is completed then the interview is going to be ready for the release.
Last week, Comer also argued that the FBI agent had confirmed certain parts of IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley’s testimony. However, Raskin has claimed that the interview has done the opposite by debunking the claims of interference with the probe.
