House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) has requested an interview with President Biden’s physician, Kevin O’Connor, as part of an ongoing investigation into the President’s family and fitness for office.

In a letter to O’Connor, Comer expressed concerns that the physician’s medical evaluations may have been influenced by personal business ties to the Biden family. Comer wrote, “After a concerning debate performance by President Biden against former President Donald Trump on June 27, journalists have rushed to report on what Americans have seen plainly for years: the President appears unwell. Americans question President Biden’s ability to lead the country, and the Committee on Oversight and Accountability is investigating circumstances surrounding your assessment in February of this year that ‘President Biden is a healthy, active, robust 81-year-old-male, who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency …’  Recently, it was reported that you have ‘never recommended that [President] Biden take a cognitive test.’ The Oversight Committee is concerned your medical assessments have been influenced by your private business endeavors with the Biden family.”

Alleged business ties:
According to the House Oversight Committee, Dr. O’Connor was “involved with the Biden family’s influence peddling schemes,” which includes a connection between Dr. O’Connor and James Biden (Joe’s brother) in Americore Health, LLC. James Biden, under investigation by the committee for alleged influence peddling, has faced scrutiny over a $200,000 check he paid to President Biden from Americore. During a transcribed interview with James Biden, it was revealed that Dr. O’Connor provided him counsel in 2017 related to the alleged work he was performing for Americore.

Comer has requested O’Connor submit related documents and schedule an interview by July 14.

White House Responds:
White House spokesperson Ian Sams dismissed Comer’s investigation as yet another baseless attack. He commented, “Here they go again, pushing their crazy, discredited conspiracy theories to score another hit on” Fox News. Additionally, Sams tweeted an article criticizing the former head of the White House Medical Unit, who is now a congressman. He wrote, “If extreme House Republicans want to examine a White House physician, here’s a suggestion on where to start.”
