Eleven House Republicans have sent AG Barr a letter asking him to appoint a special counsel to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden over the recent Ukraine and China bombshells that have come out:
FOX NEWS – House Republicans on Monday wrote to Attorney General William Barr, urging him to appoint a special counsel to investigate alleged revelations coming from a laptop purported to have belonged to Joe Biden’s son Hunter — specifically the elder Biden’s alleged participation in his son’s business dealings.
“These alleged revelations raise serious questions about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business, dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities,” the letter, obtained by Fox News, says.
The letter is signed by 11 Republicans, including Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., Ted Yoho, R-Fla., and Andy Harris, R-Md.
The letter was written after the New York Post published emails last week suggesting that Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in 2015 — one year before the then-vice president allegedly pressured the country’s government to fire a prosecutor who had launched an investigation into the company.
Below is the full text of the letter sent to AG Barr:
Last week, reports surfaced about an uncovered hard drive and laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden.Emails, allegedly on the hard drive, have indicated that Hunter Biden may have helped to orchestrate a payout to his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, from his dealings with a Chinese energy corporation, and that he may have compromised the integrity of his father’s role as Vice President of the United States with his business
dealings in Ukraine.
These alleged revelations raise serious issues about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration, and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities.
Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability.
If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.
It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain.
We request that the Department of Justice immediately appoint an independent, unbiased special counsel to investigate the issues that we have raised – as well as any corresponding legal or ethical issues that might be uncovered from the former vice president’s 47 years in public office.
We ask for a response to our request by Friday, October 23, 2020, at 5 PM EST.
The Republicans who signed it are Andy Biggs, Paul Gosar, Ted Budd, Jeff Duncan, Jody Hice, Mark Green, Debbie Lesko, Louie Gohmert, Ted Yoho, Andy Harris, and Steve King.
I absolutely agree that this requires a special counsel and would love to see AG Barr appoint one. Democrats love special counsels too, so I’m sure they’d be all over this.
