Republicans are intent on hauling in President Biden’s doctor who is now caught up in the scandal over his mental decline. 

‘The only people in Washington, D.C. — other than Donald Trump — who want Joe Biden to stay in the race are the Biden family and his physician,’ Oversight Chairman James Comer said Tuesday. 

‘What do they have in common? They were involved in the Biden influence peddling scheme.’ 

Dr. Kevin O’Connor is a close friend of the Biden family and was involved in his brother James’ business ventures with now-defunct Americore Health. 

On Monday visitor logs revealed a Parkinson’s expert had visited the White House eight times from July 2023 to March of this year. 

The expert, Dr. Kevin Cannard, met with O’Connor on at least one occasion. 

O’Connor has repeatedly insisted the president is in good health and earlier this year denied a Parkinson’s diagnosis. Biden has frequently touted his doctor’s optimistic assessment of his health.

O’Connor said Cannard had seen Biden three times in the three and a half years of his presidency and implied the other visits were related to other White House personnel. 

‘Prior to the pandemic, and following its end, he has held regular neurology clinics at the White House Medical Clinic in support of the thousands of active-duty members assigned in support of White House operation.’

O’Connor also made business introductions between James, who was exploring a business venture that would need Veterans Affairs contracts, and a military-focused medical team. The doctor accompanied James to a meeting with a hospital president, Politico reported. 

James, who served as principal, sent $200,000 to President Biden while the company was experiencing financial distress in March 2018. The check was marked as loan repayment. 

A February memo from O’Connor to White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said a neurologic exam had revealed no findings of Parkinson’s or other neurological disorders. 

Comer said he had plans to ask O’Connor about the ‘glowing bill of health’ he gave the president in February. ‘We also wonder why Joe Biden has never been given a cognitive test.’ 

O’Connor also served as Biden’s doctor when he was vice president. 

A year after Biden left the vice presidency, O’Connor emailed more than a dozen members of the family and said: ‘You’ve all been a really important part of my life.’

In a 2018 deposition, James’ wife Sarah described O’Connor as a ‘friend’ who would often dole out medical advice for her family. 

Testimony from O’Connor could be severely restrained by HIPAA, which forbids doctors from revealing medical information that a patient wants to keep secret, even if that patient is a public servant. 

Comer told DailyMail.com that he’d give O’Connor some time to respond to his request for testimony before considering a subpoena for the doctor. 

Speaker Mike Johnson also said he was supportive of hauling in O’Connor before Congress.  

‘The American people they want to know if this has indeed been a cover up all the way to the top.’

Jean-Pierre repeatedly insisted during a press conference last week that Biden had not been to the doctor to take a mental acuity test, which contradicted the president’s own statements during a meeting with governors last week where he said he saw his doctor after the debate and they determined everything was fine.

Biden denies that he has any long term mental issues and said in his first post-debate TV interview there are ‘no indications of any serious condition.’

Speaking with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos on Friday, Biden repeatedly rejected the idea of taking an independent medical evaluation that would show voters he is up for serving another term.
