House Republicans, with a six-member majority, to investigate Hunter and Joe Biden criminal connections

House Republican lawmakers are doubling down on investigations into the Biden family’s foreign business dealings and how President Joe Biden may have been involved.

Lawmakers at a Thursday news conference argued that Hunter Biden in particular used his father’s influence to negotiate business deals overseas that may have used federal resources and even compromised the Biden family.

“Evidence obtained by Committee Republicans reveals Joe Biden lied to the American people about his involvement in his family’s business schemes,” House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., said. “The Biden family business model is built on Joe Biden’s political career and connections with Joe Biden as the ‘chairman of the board.’ Biden family members sold access for profit around the world to the detriment of American interests. If President Biden is compromised by deals with foreign adversaries and they are impacting his decision making, this is a threat to national security.”

This is the latest in a string of inquiries and investigations into Hunter Biden, the president, the president’s brother James, and who else may have benefited or been “compromised” in these dealings.

“Hunter Biden and James Biden have racked up at least 150 suspicious activity reports for their business transactions,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio. said. “How many involved Joe Biden?”

The announcement came just hours after Republicans officially learned they claimed a majority in the House, offering a glimpse of how they hope to use their two years in power, especially since they will be unlikely to have any partisan legislative wins.

President Joe Biden has repeatedly deflected accusations and defended his son, who is currently under federal investigation.

Jordan also raised questions about how tech companies and federal agencies have worked together to suppress information that could have damaged the Biden campaign, as reporting has shown.

“I think there are all kinds of questions that need to be answered, and we are determined to get there,” Jordan said.

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee have sent letters to six top Biden administration officials requesting documents, communications, records and other information. Those inquiries have been sent to U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen requesting Suspicious Activity Reports, a letter to Acting Archivist Debra Steidel Wall seeking information about the potential use of Air Force Two for family business during the Obama administration.

The lawmakers also have reached out to Hunter’s associate Eric Schwerin and financial advisor Edward Prewitt. They are also requesting information from FBI Director Christopher Wray about Hunter Biden’s assistant and alleged connections to the Chinese Communist Party.

The lawmakers were likely emboldened by the GOP taking control of the House, meaning Republicans will have the committee chairmanships and greater teeth to their investigations.

“The American people deserve transparency and accountability about the Biden family’s influence peddling,” Comer said. “With the new Republican majority, Oversight Committee Republicans will continue pressing for answers to inform legislative solutions to prevent this abuse of power.”

  1. As corrupt as the Biden’s are, there are bigger fish to fry.

    -an out of control DOJ.
    -4 cabinet members to impeach
    -stopping the 87,000 IRS new hires
    -getting control of the border
    -auditing the endless Ukraine spending.

    Biden deserves his time under the heat lamp. But do the more pressing matters first. Joe and co will still be corrupt degenerates next year.

    • You beat me to the punch. Nice list. Only thing I would add would be dissolving the FBI.

      Note that the first entity that does something about the CCP and cartel sourcing of fentanyl will win the next election. Neither the border wall nor interdicting the inbound flow will work. The US needs to take active, kinetic action against both the CCP and the cartels (cartels first). Cheers –

    • Agree, but none of that will ever see the light of day of Biden continues to sit in the Oval Office.
      .
      Until the dirt is at least partially exposed, any efforts to stop that will just be stopped, either in the Senate, or on Biden’s desk. First step is to expose the corruption, and destroy any credibility this administration has.

    • Masked Avenger,
      I disagree, one must first diagnose the disease before one tries to treat the symptoms. These Republicans are on to something. This Corruption runs deep within our Government and China is funding it.
      The symptoms you list above are actually prongs of a coordinated attack upon our Nation. One must first identify the Collaborators within our Government and this investigation of Biden is merely the start. Lot’s of Republicans and Wall Street Fat Cats, like cockroaches need to be exposed to the light of truth.

      So pull off your mask and unbutton your cloak for but a moment and do some research before you .

    • Agreed. New IRS agents are here in Anchorage. They “dropped in” on a small business salon owner, audited the 2014 income taxes and levied the bank account! Picking on hard working small business owners after the pandemic is unconscionable.

  2. Remember non stop Trump investigations that led nowhere? Even to this day?
    If they are serious these will lead to somewhere. The Biden’s are as crooked as the Clinton’s but twice as stupid.

    • I know, but Trump did set a precedence when he used the full power of the DOJ to ruin Hillary Clinton and anyone who supported her. Oh… wait. That was Biden screwing over Trump. Damn… those President all run together….

  3. Democrats are anxious to find a replacement candidate for 2024. Make this investigation last about 21 months, then impeach the Idiot during late summer of 2024. Mess-up the Democrat’s timetables.

  4. Fair’s fair. There is enough doubt to warrant an inquiry. Bummer is that it will be conducted from the shallow end of the kiddie pool.

    • We’ll see how many of those 87,000 new IRS hires get tasked with the Biden crime family investigation. Silly me, they’re all for us, the peons.

    • Joe doesn’t understand 10% from 110%. The Big Guy is in Assisted Living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He gets everything free now, including his @$$ wiped daily. Jill and all of the White House lesbians control the script. Hunter is living on the beach in LA, and doing art, while all of his illegitimate babies, ex-sister in laws, ex-wives, hookers, drug addict friends, and low-life former friends are trying to write books about Life With The Biden’s. The American Dream. What role models for us and future generations!

    • Wow Frank, WSJ already looked at this? I mean every President has a Crack Head Kid with a billion dollar investment firm, right? Yeah, I see a huge backlash coming especially when we find out how corrupt this whole thing really is. Why it could lead all the way back to finding out how much moola the Chi-Com’s have invested even in the WSJ!

  5. Good luck. We’re gonna get more information regarding Jordan’s time at The OSU, with this. I’m glad that is agonna be moving forward, too.

        • Just as all you terminally stupid and evil radical leftists are in denial about the growing and systemic voting fraud in this country, eh Maureen?
          .
          You are just a voting fraud denialist! And the reason why you are, is because it serves your political side and your political agenda. Winning at ALL costs, and by ANY means, is the hallmark of radical leftists, and of diehard statist authoritarians in general.

  6. Nobody will go to jail or lose their federal benefits. This is just a dog and pony show spending our tax dollars to make the serfs feel good. Nothing less that a few dozen corrupt federal employees should be in jail next to the Jan 6th group by Monday morning. Lots of swat raids need to be conducted starting with the Federal bureau of incompetence.

  7. All politics are local, it all starts with family, and friends. Those who refuse to talk politics or religion are the start of the problem. If you bury your head in the sand guess what is left exposed for the taking.

  8. The Republicans have had the laptop for years, the illusion of wrong doing is all they have and they know it. They would have publicly released it years ago if their was real evidence. Yes, Hunter is probably guilty of tax fraud and should be charged accordingly, but other than that they have nothing and they know it. It makes good right wing fodder though.

  9. Since all the problems that The Masked Avenger listed are all inter related and lead up to the Bidens/white house, this should all be one big house cleaning. Chase the criminal elements of each problem to their bosses and progress through the organization until you find out who gave the initial orders. Sort of like what narcotics cops do when busting the guys on the street; leverage them to get to the next step up the ladder.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s Hunter, open borders, the economy crashing, DOJ, etc, they all lead back to the same group currently at the white house.

    An honest, aggressive investigation will legally prove everything we see on a daily basis. Now if we can find an organization that is capable of conducting an honest and aggressive investigation . . . .

  10. The Biden Crime Family. Absolute perverts, pedophiles, incestuous sex addicts, thieves, liars, drug addicts, ………..the best the Democrats can do.

  11. And surprise. In retaliation Biden has unleashed Garland on Trump. Every time I think the GOP has reached max stupidity, the outdo themselves.

    No wonder the wave turned into a toilet flush. Republicans don’t deserve to run the country.
