 House Republicans Sue Two DOJ Officials Over Refusal to Comply with Subpoenas in Hunter Biden Case

The House Judiciary Committee has taken legal action against two Department of Justice (DOJ) officials, filing a lawsuit on Thursday for their noncompliance with subpoenas regarding the Hunter Biden investigation.

The officials, identified as Mark Daly, a senior litigation counsel, and Jack Morgan, a trial attorney in the DOJ’s Tax Division, have been accused of defying orders to appear for depositions by the committee.

Gary Shapley, an IRS criminal investigator who has turned whistleblower and was also at the June meeting, has claimed to Congress that the Tax Division was against charging Biden during the discussed meeting.

Daly and Morgan are thus crucial to the Committee’s investigation.

After DOJ refused to make Daly and Morgan available for voluntary interviews with the Committee, the Committee subpoenaed them to appear for depositions.

But they defied the Subpoenas because their employer, DOJ, directed them not to appear. By refusing to appear, Daly and Morgan are frustrating Congress’s ability to conduct oversight and investigate Executive Branch corruption—a critical part of Congress’s Article I powers.

Because this investigation is also part of an impeachment inquiry, Daly and Morgan are likewise frustrating the Committee’s ability to determine whether President Biden has committed an impeachable offense. They are thus preventing the House from discharging its solemn power of impeachment, a power the Constitution vests exclusively in the House.

Daly, Morgan, and DOJ have not disputed that the Committee’s
