Republicans have stated that they are ‘prepared’ to ‘see this through to the conclusion.’ House Republicans have written to Hunter Biden’s legal team, requesting that they “immediately” preserve any data connected to any commercial activities he had under the Obama administration, as well as evidence linked to his infamous laptop that he left at a Delaware repair shop.
“This investigation matters because of what we owe the American people: The full history of the collusion and coverup that we know took place in 2020, and the history yet to be written about what we did to ensure this abuse of power can never happen again,” After mailing the letter, California Rep. Darrell Issa, a senior committee member, issued a comment to Fox News Digital. “Jim Jordan, my colleagues and I are ready to see this through to the end.”
The House Republicans allude to a blockbuster article from the New York Post released in the weeks leading up to the 2020 presidential election that detailed the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop and implied he was profiting from his father’s position of power. “This article raised doubts about President Biden’s denial of ever speaking to you about your international business dealings,” According to the letter.
“The Post reported on an email in which a Ukrainian businessman urged you to ‘use your influence to convey a message / signal, etc. to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions.’ In another email, the same businessman thanked you for arranging a meeting with your father, then-Vice President Biden, calling it ‘an honor and pleasure.’ The Post reported that these emails came from a laptop belonging to you that you abandoned in a Delaware computer shop.”
The Gop then went on to criticize the Biden campaign and administration for rejecting the contents of the laptop as “Russian disinformation” and saying that the father and son had never discussed the latter’s international business affairs. The letter reads, “Contrary to the claims of the Biden campaign and prominent Democrats, the contents of the New York Post’s reporting have never been challenged.” “In contrast, other news sites are finally corroborating the Post’s findings eighteen months after the article was published.”
The Republicans went on to say that Congress has a “responsibility to investigate these facts” and that “material preservation is critical for us to conduct a complete investigation of these topics.” The letter came on the same day that Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee rejected a Republican proposal to call Hunter Biden as a witness at a hearing on electrifying the USPS fleet of vehicles.
“Democrats just denied our motion to subpoena Hunter Biden,” Republican members of the committee took to Twitter to express their displeasure. “They are refusing to hold Hunter responsible for his unscrupulous business operations, which have increased our reliance on China for green energy. Accountability is long overdue.”
Last week, Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson took to the Senate floor to raise concerns about President Biden’s son Hunter’s financial entanglements with the Chinese government. The senators provided a receipt showing a state-controlled Chinese energy company paying Wells Fargo Clearing Services $100,000, with “further credit” going to Hunter Biden’s firm, Owasco.
“CEFC pretended to be a private corporation, but it was effectively an arm of the Chinese government,” Grassley said. “Through CEFC and its affiliates, Hunter and James Biden provided the ideal vehicle for the communist Chinese government to develop inroads in the United States.”
White House chief of staff Ron Klain said on Sunday that President Barack Obama is “certain” Hunter Biden did nothing wrong. “Of course, the president feels certain that his son did not breach the law,” Klain said, “but, as I said, that’s an issue that will be resolved by the Justice Department, via the legal process.” It’s a situation in which no one in the White House is involved.”
House Republicans submitted the letter to Hunter Biden’s legal firm, Latham & Watkins LLP, which did not immediately reply to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
