( – James Biden, the brother of President Joe Biden, is scheduled to participate in a formal interview with the House Oversight Committee on February 21st, as part of the committee’s ongoing inquiry into the activities of the president and his son, Hunter Biden. This update was shared by the committee’s Republican members, who expressed anticipation for the forthcoming testimony, though they did not disclose specific details regarding the content or focus of the interview.

The decision to subpoena James Biden came about in November, linked to the broader investigation efforts targeting the Biden family. Initially, James was expected to meet with committee members in December, according to information from NBC News. It’s important to note that James Biden has not been formally accused or charged with any criminal activities by the FBI.

The impeachment investigation led by Republican representatives is keenly interested in understanding James Biden’s knowledge of Hunter Biden’s business engagements and whether President Biden was aware or involved in these dealings. Recent reports have brought to light that James Biden’s business communications, particularly those with Richard “Dickie” Scruggs, a lawyer from Mississippi, were under FBI scrutiny. These communications were part of an investigation into the dealings James Biden was pursuing.

Scruggs, who engaged James Biden’s consulting firm based in Washington, D.C., and paid $100,000 in 1998 for legislative advice while Joe Biden served in the Senate, acknowledged the influence of the Biden family name in his decision to hire James. The consultation was aimed at facilitating a bill related to a significant legal settlement requiring tobacco companies to make substantial financial compensations. Although Joe Biden voted in favor of the bill, it ultimately did not succeed in Congress. Scruggs also noted that James Biden did not exploit his familial connections to advance the business dealings.
