House Oversight Committee Probes Biden’s Physician Over Health Concerns

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) is scrutinizing President Joe Biden’s personal doctor, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, following a series of concerns about the president’s health after a recent debate.

In a letter acquired by the Washington Examiner, Comer has requested an interview with O’Connor, questioning his February medical report that described Biden as a “healthy, active, robust 81-year-old male, who remains fit to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency.” This scrutiny comes after Biden’s performance in a debate against former President Donald Trump on June 27, which has raised questions about his mental sharpness.

Comer is also investigating potential conflicts of interest involving O’Connor and the Biden family. O’Connor has been linked to Americore, a bankrupt healthcare company associated with Biden’s brother, James Biden. Comer highlighted that James Biden received $600,000 from Americore for using the Biden name to secure funding from the Middle East, suggesting that this financial relationship could have influenced O’Connor’s medical evaluations.

In addition to the interview request, Comer has asked O’Connor to provide all documents and communications related to Americore and James Biden. This inquiry is part of a broader investigation into the Biden family’s business dealings.

The White House has recently confirmed that Biden underwent a medical checkup following the debate, amid rising concerns about his health. The Biden campaign previously stated that the president was battling a cold during the debate.

Adding to the concerns, visitor logs reveal that Dr. Kevin Cannard, a Parkinson’s disease expert from Walter Reed Medical Center, has met with O’Connor and others at the White House residence clinic multiple times since November 2022. These visits have led to further speculation about Biden’s health.

Comer’s investigation aims to uncover whether O’Connor’s medical assessments have been influenced by his private business engagements with the Biden family. The House Oversight Committee seeks to conduct a transcribed interview with O’Connor by July 14 to explore these issues thoroughly.
