GOP-led House committee subpoenas 3 White House aides for depositions about Biden's health

President Joe Biden arrives at the NATO 75th anniversary celebratory event during the NATO summit in Washington, DC, on July 9.

The GOP-led House Oversight Committee has subpoenaed three White House aides for depositions later this month to discuss President Joe Biden’s health, according to the committee.

The subpoenas were sent to Anthony Bernal, Annie Tomasini and Ashley Williams, according to a news release. 

The subpoenas are the latest attempt from Republicans to continue to drill down on the mental acuity of the president that has left Democrats in turmoil since Biden’s disastrous debate performance.

In a statement to CNN, White House spokesman Ian Sams called out the Oversight Committee chair, Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, and dismissed the subpoenas as “a baseless political stunt intended for him to get media attention instead of engage in legitimate oversight.”

“His partisan attacks on the President have been discredited, and now he continues to debase the House by weaponizing subpoenas to get headlines instead of seeking information through the proper constitutional process,” the statement continued.

Republicans have also requested an interview with Biden’s doctor, Kevin O’Connor, and continue to try and push to get the audio tapes of the president’s interviews with former special counsel Robert Hur.
