House Republicans demand records from Hunter Biden attorneys related to collapsed 'sweetheart' plea deal

House Republicans are demanding Hunter Biden’s legal team turn over all records of communications with the Justice Department related to the collapsed plea agreement for the president’s son—records that appeared to later be leaked to media outlets that reported details of the negotiations.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith warned in a letter obtained by Fox News Digital that noncompliance could result in the panels seeking testimony from Hunter Biden and his attorneys.

Fox News Digital obtained a letter Jordan, Comer and Smith sent to Hunter Biden’s attorneys Chris Clark and Abbe Lowell Wednesday demanding documents and communications related to the "failed settlement negotiations."

The lawmakers argued that because the documents have been publicly disclosed and reported, "no basis exists to withhold these documents and communications from the Committees, including on the basis of any purported duty of confidentiality, work product, or other privilege interest."
