A Wells Fargo financial advisor is facing demands for information about the business deals of President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, according to news reports.

Hunter Biden’s business dealings have been making headlines in recent months, particularly since an NBC News analysis of a copy of Biden’s hard drive and iCloud account and documents released by Republicans on two Senate committees.

In May, the news network reported that Hunter Biden and his firm took in around $11 million from 2013 through 2018 for his work as a lawyer and a board member with a Ukrainian firm facing accusations of bribery as well as through his work with a Chinese businessman accused of fraud.

Hunter Biden acknowledged in December 2020 that he was under federal investigation over his taxes.

Now, House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Rep. James Comer, R-Kentucky, wants answers from Hunter Biden’s financial advisor, Edward Prewitt, Fox News Digital writes.

“More than 150 transactions from the Bidens’ business dealings have been flagged by U.S. banks through filings of Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) to the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network,” Comer wrote in a letter to Prewitt posted on the committee’s website.

“As Hunter Biden’s financial advisor, you are in a unique position to know how these transactions originated and why they were flagged by U.S. banks. As such, we request information regarding Hunter Biden’s financial transactions, including any documents related to SARs,” Comer added.

The congressman also wrote that records reviewed by the committee show that Prewitt was aware of transactions involving Biden’s accounts flagged for further scrutiny by Wells Fargo Corporate Compliance and that the advisor “brought this fact to Hunter Biden’s attention in an email.”

Fox News added that Prewitt “served as a political appointee under former President Bill Clinton.”

Prewitt didn’t respond to the news network’s request for comment.

Prewitt first registered as a broker in 2001, when he joined Wells Fargo predecessor firm A.G. Edwards & Sons in Fayetteville, Arkansas, according to BrokerCheck. The following year, he also registered as an investment advisor with the firm, and in 2008 transitioned to Wells Fargo in both capacities, according to his record.

Prior to A.G. Edwards, Prewitt served as deputy assistant secretary for intergovernmental affairs at the Department of Commerce from 1997 to 2001, according to his LinkedIn profile. From 1994 to 1997, he was special assistant to the secretary of the Department of Education, according to LinkedIn.
