The Republican chair of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, has requested that President Joe Biden's physician, Dr. Kevin O'Connor, appear for a transcribed interview about Biden's medical evaluation.

Comer, a prominent critic of Biden's, has for months helped lead efforts for the Republican-led impeachment inquiry into Biden that has fizzled into nothing. Republicans did not provide evidence that Biden was engaged in any criminal actions, despite repeated claims otherwise.

In the letter, Comer pointed to Biden's response to ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos' question Friday about whether Biden would be willing to take a cognitive test.

"I have a cognitive test every single day," Biden responded. "Every day I have that test. Everything I do."

Comer said in the letter, "You have repeatedly refused most interview requests from the media, and the Committee now turns to you to provide answers regarding your independence because of the mixed and confused messaging coming from the White House regarding the President’s ability to perform his job."

The letter also pointed to initial conflicting reports about whether Biden had undergone a medical exam since his routine February physical.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre initially told reporters Wednesday that Biden had not undergone any medical exams since February. Hours later, Biden told a group of governors during a meeting that he was checked by a doctor after the debate, adding that everything was fine, according to sources.

"The statements by the White House Press Secretary and President Biden appear inconsistent, and the Committee seeks to understand the extent of your role at the White House at this time," Comer said. "Given your connections with the Biden family, the Committee also seeks to understand if you are in a position to provide accurate and independent reviews of the President’s fitness to serve."

Comer also asked O'Connor in the letter to provide documents and communications related to James Biden, the president's brother, and a company Comer has long sought to tie to the Biden family's financial conduct.

He requested that O'Connor contact staff members by July 14 to schedule an interview.

"Here they go again, pushing their crazy, discredited conspiracy theories in order to score another hit on Bartiromo," he said, referring to Fox News anchor Maria Bartiromo's show.

O'Connor was brought in to be Biden's physician just days into his term. He first began serving as Biden's physician in 2009.

After Biden's routine physical in February, O’Connor said in an assessment that he “fully executes all of his responsibilities without any exemptions or accommodations.
