Are the Walls Closing in on Hunter Biden?

The House Oversight Committee is still grinding away, hoping to make some sort of case against Hunter Biden. Now, CBS News is reporting that the Oversight Committee has subpoenaed Devon Archer, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, to be deposed this week.

The CBS report holds that Oversight Chair Representative James Comer wrote a letter to Archer’s attorney saying that Archer “played a significant role in the Biden family’s business deals abroad, including but not limited to China, Russia, and Ukraine.”

The letter continued, “Additionally, while undertaking these ventures with the Biden family, your client met with then-Vice President Biden on multiple occasions, including in the White House.”

Now Archer will answer the Oversight Committee’s questions about what exactly the Biden family’s business dealings looked like.

Who is Devon Archer?

Archer served on the board of Burisma at the same time Hunter Biden happened to serve on the board of Burisma. Comer and company are banking on Archer having some special insights into Hunter Biden’s conduct on the Burisma board. To date, the House has failed to turn up anything substantial to malign the first son or his father.

Archer himself is no stranger to legal trouble; last week he had an appeal denied to overturn a 2018 conviction (and one-year prison sentence) to defraud a Native American tribe.

Meanwhile in the Biden investigation

Aside from the Archer subpoena, the biggest news in the Biden investigation is Senator Chuck Grassley’s speech claiming that a Ukrainian foreign national is holding audio recordings of Hunter and Joe Biden as an insurance policy.

“The 1023 [form] produced to that House committee redacted reference that the foreign national who allegedly bribed Joe and Hunter Biden allegedly has audio recordings of his conversations with them. Seventeen total recordings,” Grassley said from the Senate floor. “According to the 1023, the foreign national possesses 15 audio recordings of phone calls between him and Hunter Biden … two audio recordings of phone calls between him and then-Vice President Joe Biden.”

Broken Record

It’s all been a big tease so far, hasn’t it? The House Oversight Committee has been ranting and raving about wrongdoings within the Biden family. Okay, fine. Show us something then. Telling me about audio recordings doesn’t do much for me.

We don’t even know that the recordings actually exist. And we certainly have no idea what’s on the recordings – it could just be a lot of ‘hey, how are ya.’ But Republicans are taking to the Senate floor to celebrate the alleged recordings as if they’ve discovered the Ark of the Covenant.

My impression has been that the Biden investigation is first and foremost a political venture. I don’t buy that the Republicans are concerned that Joe Biden may have acted improperly or exposed our government to vulnerabilities. Everything that the Republicans are claiming is within the realm of possibility. You can’t rule it out off-hand. But it’s a lot of speculation, isn’t it?

Personally, I’m not interested in the slightest. If James Comer wants to go and find something that actually impeaches the character of the president, then by all means, let me know about it.

But the weekly, celebratory revelations about some minutiae relating to Joe Biden’s phone conversations or Hunter Biden’s drug use are not doing it for me.
