What goes around comes around, as they say, and the latest maneuvers by House Republicans certainly do feel a little familiar.
That’s because, after years of witnessing the outright, obsessive targeting of former President Donald Trump by Democratic lawmakers in Congress, the House GOP has decided to give the left a taste of their own medicine.
Worse still for Democrats: It looks like they’re getting somewhere.
Kathy Chung, President Joe Biden’s former “primary gatekeeper,” has agreed to partially comply with the House Oversight Committee’s probe into the classified document scandal and the Biden family’s international business schemes.
Chung’s lawyer, Bill Taylor, told CNN she will hand over some requested documents and sit for an interview with the committee, which is investigating the Biden family for nine violations, including money laundering and wire fraud. It is also probing Biden’s classified document scandal that would likely not have been revealed to the public if it was not leaked to CBS News in January.
Chung’s relationship with the Biden family has been a lengthy one.
Chung is a longtime confidant of the Biden family. In May 2012, Hunter proposed Chung as a candidate for a job in Vice President Biden’s office. Hunter described her potential responsibilities as replacing the “primary gatekeeper for the VP” and “conduit everyone goes through to get to [Vice President Biden].” He also described the job as the person who “handles all personal stuff” for Joe Biden.
Chung won’t be a complete witness, however, as she is refusing to provide the full gamut of documents requested. Her lawyer did suggest that Chung would be “happy to sit for an interview”, however, leaving the door open for an explosive line of questioning or two.
