Adam Laxalt criticizes Cortez Masto’s long history with Hunter, Joe Biden

Trump-endorsed Nevada Senate candidate Adam Laxalt on Thursday criticized Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto’s (D-NV) long family history with the Biden family, including Hunter Biden.

Sharing a Breitbart News post on Twitter about Cortez Masto and her husband’s ties to Hunter and his sleazy business, Laxalt suggested that Cortez Masto might “try to turn away from the Biden family” despite the “long history of his family with them.

[email protected]’s husband would seek work from his ‘boyfriend’ Hunter Biden to provide security for the Biden campaign,” Laxalt tweeted. “She may be trying to run away from the Biden family in an election year, but make no mistake, her family has a long history with them.”

Breitbart News first reported that President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign paid off a private security company owned by Cortez Masto’s husband, Paul Masto, who was friends with Hunter and asked the Biden family for work while Joe Biden was vice president.

Emails on Hunter’s laptop from 2010 reveal that he and Paul Masto were friends and even discussed Masto’s security company. In Paul Masto’s email to Hunter, he called Hunter his “buddy” and asked if Hunter knew anyone who needed his security services.

Cortez Masto’s husband has a remarkable background. He is a former Assistant Special Agent for the Las Vegas Secret Service Bureau. From 2007 to 2020, Paul Masto owned private security firm Universal Security Specialists, before it was dissolved in 2020 when Joe Biden became president-elect.

Breitbart News reported that from 2019 to 2020, Universal Security Specialists received its only income from Biden For President, totaling more than $24,000, according to FEC filings.

Then, in fiscal 2022, Paul Masto received about $27,000 in pandemic-related rental income, Breitbart News reported. Paul Masto’s receipt of pandemic funds raises the question of whether a U.S. senator’s family member should be able to cash in while a spouse is shaping federal policy.

The Mastos’ close ties to the Biden family come to light as Hunter is reportedly being investigated by Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney David Weiss for tax evasion and money laundering. Meanwhile, the FBI is said to have blocked an investigation into Hunter’s laptop, raising questions about the scope of Weiss’ investigation.

If Republicans take over the Senate and House in November, they will have the power to conduct hearings and call witnesses to probe the Biden family business. A Republican Oversight Committee aide told Breitbart News that Republicans will have the power to determine whether “Joe Biden profited from Hunter Biden or other shady business dealings with foreign adversaries opposed to American interests.”

Ranking Member James Comer and Oversight Committee Republicans are investigating the Biden family’s suspicious business dealings and influence peddling, as well as Big Tech and the Swamp’s collusion to hide incriminating information about the family. Biden,” the aide said.

Along with the oversight committee investigation, Republicans can create a select committee to probe the Biden family. According to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), the select committee would be made up of members with expertise from the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Financial Services Committee, Oversight Committee and Judiciary Committee. A Select Committee is a type of temporary committee created to investigate or consider other action on a specific topic.

Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) told Breitbart News exclusively on Thursday that a Republican-controlled House could “absolutely” create a select committee to investigate the “big guy.”

“I think it can be done on top of surveillance. There are plenty there [to investigate]Mace told Breitbart News. “But if that’s not enough, once the traditional committee process investigates – then by all means – a special committee would be another option, absolutely.”

“We know who the ‘big guy’ is that gets a cut,” she added, referring to Joe Biden. “I think whatever happens, whether it’s a special committee or an oversight, Congress will have a role to play especially in the fight against corruption.”

Sixty-two percent of registered voters think Joe Biden likely consulted and possibly profited from the Biden family’s business deals, a recent poll found. Fifty-eight percent of voters think Joe Biden played a role in his family’s affairs. Sixty percent say Hunter Biden sold “influence and access” to the president.
