After months of obstruction by the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Secret
Service, House Oversight and Investigations Committee Chairman James Comer announced yesterday he has issued six subpoenas related to his investigation of the cover up of Hunter Biden’s crimes.
Four subpoenas to DHS that require the production of documents and communications about our request and three depositions with DHS employees.
Two subpoenas to the Secret Service requiring two Secret Service employees to appear for depositions.

In the cover letter accompanying the subpoenas Chairman Comer pointed out IRS whistleblowers provided testimony regarding misconduct during the Hunter Biden criminal investigation, including FBI HQ tipping off Secret Service HQ and the Biden transition team about the planned Hunter Biden interview. Following these actions, the interview of Hunter Biden did not occur.
These allegations were backed up by the former FBI supervisory special agent who was assigned to interview Hunter Biden.
Chairman Comer’s subpoenas compel DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to provide all documents and communications regarding the Biden transition team being tipped off about the planned Hunter Biden interview in December 2020; all documents and communications related to Congress’s request; and depositions with DHS and Secret Service employees involved with providing the response to Congress.
“The Department of Justice initiated the Biden family coverup and now DHS under the leadership of Secretary Mayorkas is complicit in it. Investigators were never able to interview Hunter Biden during the criminal investigation because Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team were tipped off about the planned interview. This is just one of many examples of the misconduct and politicization during the Department of Justice’s investigation. The Oversight Committee – along with the Judiciary and Ways and Means Committees – is seeking interviews with key witnesses, including employees at the Secret Service. The Department of Homeland Security is obstructing our investigation by muzzling the Secret Service from providing a response to Congress. The American people deserve transparency, not obstruction. House Republicans will hold the Biden Administration accountable for running interference for the Biden family’s corruption and criminal activity,” said Chairman Comer.
IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley’s sworn testimony reveals that FBI and IRS investigators sought to interview Hunter Biden on December 8, 2020, without giving notice that the interview would occur. However, on December 7, 2020, FBI headquarters tipped off Secret Service headquarters and the Biden transition team about the planned actions the following day. This account was confirmed to the Oversight Committee during a transcribed interview with a former FBI Supervisory Special Agent who accompanied the IRS whistleblower during the attempt to interview Hunter Biden. Following these actions by FBI and the Secret Service, the interview of Hunter Biden did not occur.
In June 2023, Chairman Comer – along with Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.) – wrote to Secret Service Director Kimberly Cheatle requesting the agency make all Secret Service employees who received the December 7, 2020 tip-off from FBI and all Secret Service employees who may have passed this information along to the Biden family or presidential transition team available for transcribed interviews. The Secret Service sought to provide a more substantive response to the three congressional committees, but DHS blocked the agency from providing it.
Yesterday’s announcement is a follow up to a June statement by Comer, Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan, and Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith demanding senior leaders at the U.S. Department of Justice, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and U.S. Secret Service (USSS) to make over a dozen employees available for transcribed interviews who possess information concerning allegations of politicization and misconduct at their agencies with respect to the investigation of Hunter Biden.
“The federal government is supposed to work for the American people, but whistleblower evidence shows that several federal employees were working overtime to cover up for the Bidens. We need to hear from these federal employees and other witnesses about this weaponization of federal law enforcement power. Americans are counting on us to ensure bad actors are held accountable and restore the equal enforcement of the law,” said Chairmen Comer, Jordan, and Smith.
From recent testimony before the Ways and Means Committee, IRS whistleblowers revealed extensive politicization and misconduct at the Department of Justice and IRS during the investigation into Hunter Biden. According to whistleblower testimony, the Justice Department refused to follow evidence that implicated Joe Biden; tipped off Hunter Biden’s attorneys, the Secret Service, and Biden transition team; allowed the clock to run out with respect to certain charges; and put tax-cheat Hunter Biden on the path towards a sweetheart plea deal.
