House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer and House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan have suggested that President Biden may have engaged in a conspiracy to obstruct a congressional proceeding if he knew about his son Hunter Biden’s plan to defy a congressional subpoena.

They have requested documents and communications from the White House regarding Hunter Biden’s deposition and have pointed to statements from White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to support their suspicion.

The White House has not responded to the request for comment. (Trending: Could Taylor Swift Save Biden In 2024?)

Hunter Biden’s attorneys cite Rep. Comer’s previous statement that, “depositions or committee hearings, whichever they choose.”

Rep. Comer and Rep. Jordan wrote in a joint letter, “President Biden was aware in advance that his son, Hunter Biden, would knowingly defy two congressional subpoenas,” forcing the committees “to examine as part of our impeachment inquiry whether the President engaged in a conspiracy to obstruct a proceeding of Congress.”

“The president was certainly familiar with what his son was going to say, and I think what you saw was from the heart from his son,” said Karine Jean-Pierre.

“In light of this evidence, the fact that the President had advanced awareness that Mr. Biden would defy the Committees’ subpoenas raises a troubling new question that we must examine: whether the President corruptly sought to influence or obstruct the Committees’ proceeding by preventing, discouraging, or dissuading his son from complying with the Committees’ subpoenas,” wrote the chairmen.

“Such conduct could constitute an impeachable offense,” they continued.

This charge comes after Hunter Biden defied a subpoena from House Republicans, and the letter from Comer and Jordan raises questions about whether the President sought to influence or obstruct the committees’ proceedings.

They have requested the White House to provide documents and communications by January 10.
