At least two top House Republicans join the push for Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a Justice Department special adviser to investigate Democratic President Joe Biden’s family’s business ties to the Chinese Communist Party , Breitbart News exclusively learned.
House GOP Conference Chair, Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) and Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) both confirmed to Breitbart News on Wednesday that they support growing calls for such a special counsel appointment. .
Their statements come after the New York Post The Editorial Board announced on Wednesday its support for a special counsel to investigate the Chinese business dealings of Hunter Biden and the Biden family, and after Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) did so earlier this week in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.
“The Bidens have lied about their illegal and unethical conflicts of interest for too long. The evidence of Hunter Biden’s corrupt business dealings, particularly with communist China, his shady involvement in international affairs and the arts scandal is mounting, but the attorney general has still not appointed a special counsel,” a Stefanik told Breitbart News.
“Make no mistake. This is a problem for Joe Biden and the entire Biden family, and they have been in hiding for far too long. They must provide full transparency to the American people,” the third House GOP member continued.
Cawthorn told Breitbart News he favors a public inquiry into Hunter after a 2018 investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware stalled in the 2020 presidential election.
“Just imagine how the left-wing legacy media would lose their collective spirit if one of President Trump’s sons had engaged in a tenth of Hunter Biden’s corruption,” Cawthorn told Breitbart News. “We absolutely should have a special advocate to investigate Hunter Biden.”
“The New York Post stood against censorship, slander and abuse for simply reporting the Hunter Biden laptop story,” Cawthorn added in reference to the former To post Emma-Jo Morris, deputy policy editor and now policy editor of Breitbart News, broke the story of the ‘laptop from hell’ during the presidential election for the first time of 2020.
Morris’ reporting on Hunter’s “laptop from hell” has sparked a “wake-up call” about protecting President Biden’s son from public inquiry, especially when the Biden administration controls Washington, DC.
the Posts A Wednesday opinion piece criticized President Biden’s Attorney General Merrick Garland for failing to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter, who appears to be America’s most protected man:
It’s high time for Garland to explain why he didn’t appoint a special advocate.
This idea has been debated at least since Hunter’s smelly art sales surfaced. And the barrage of damning news has only continued: a former business partner is “fully cooperating” with the federal government; Congressional allegations that the Secret Service improperly redacted Hunter’s travel records; news that Hunter’s banking records about his dealings with the Bank of China were subpoenaed in May 2019.
That is to say, the authorities are watching Hunter from the obama administration. Given all of this, Biden should have placed the investigation under impartial scrutiny long ago. In between, Justice managed to thoroughly investigate, for example, everything related to President Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia – albeit through a special counsel.
the Posts The statement follows a Breitbart News report that revealed a 2019 document from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware. The document said the IRS had subpoenaed “JPMorgan Chase Bank for the financial records of Hunter Biden, the President’s brother James Biden, their associates Devon Archer and Eric Schwerin, and a number of business entities with which they were involved” as an integral part of a crime. investigate Hunter.
