33 Senators Request Special Counsel to Investigate Hunter Biden
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1922: U.S. President Warren G. Harding signs a joint resolution of approval to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine.
33 Senators sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, requesting that he grant U.S. Attorney David Weiss the authority of a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings.
“Given the politicization of the DOJ under your watch and the importance of avoiding any appearance of impropriety, the undersigned request that you provide U.S. Attorney Weiss the full protections and authorities of a special counsel,” the letter reads.
“This is one important action that you can take that will go a long way in restoring faith in our governmental institutions.”
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) led the charge, with 32 other GOP senators signing the letter, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“There is no way of knowing the entire scope of the investigation, but evidence seems to be mounting that Hunter Biden committed numerous federal crimes, including, but not limited to, tax fraud, money laundering, and foreign-lobbying violations,” the letter reads.
“Indeed, Senators [Chuck] Grassley and [Ron] Johnson have conducted an investigation for several years that has resulted in the public discourse of facts that support those criminal concerns, including the disclosure of financial records showing the Biden family’s close financial connections to the communist Chinese government and questionable foreign nationals.”
“It is clear that Hunter Biden thrived off a ‘pay to play’ culture of access to his father, then Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for financial compensation.”
The lawmakers sent the letter one day after CBS aired an interview with President Joe Biden wherein he claimed that his son’s foreign business affairs didn’t present any conflicts of interest for him.
“There’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter,” Biden said in the interview.
