Former President Barack Obama has been in the news a little bit lately. This latest story actually involves a number of staffers that served in his administration. It seems that the bad luck and coinciding bad press of the Bidens may have indeed reached into the Obama camp and its inhabitants. Courtesy of Hunter Biden, it seems that a number of Obama officials might find themselves in the middle on a congressional probe.
It is now being reported by Fox News that:
House Republicans on the Oversight and Reform Committee are planning widespread investigations into President Biden and his son, Hunter, over allegations of influence peddling. The probe will cover not only the Justice Department’s current handling of its investigation into Hunter Biden’s taxes and business dealings, but also his ties to the Obama administration.
Rep. James Comer of Kentucky, the top Republican on the oversight panel, told Fox News Digital that Republicans on the committee are focusing on Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and China during the Obama years. He said if Republicans win the majority, the committee is likely to pursue that line of investigation.
Fox News went on to report that:
“This investigation isn’t just about Hunter Biden,” said Comer. “And it’s not going to end if he gets indicted on an application to purchase a gun or for tax evasion. We’re looking at serious influence peddling accusations.”
To that end, House Republicans will look to depose Obama administration personnel and records relating to Hunter Biden’s business dealings. Lawmakers also plan to subpoena documents relating to the president’s brother, James Biden, who often partnered with Hunter on ventures.
Comer and his investigators are using information from Hunter Biden’s laptop and government whistle-blowers to serve as the basis for depositions and public hearings.
Yahoo News went on to report that:
“One of the things in the emails and texts that keeps popping up is how [Hunter Biden and others] make a sales pitch to one of our adversaries in the Middle East, or in China and Russia, and they say essentially we’ll help you navigate the Obama-era bureaucracy,” said Comer. “So we want to hear from people working in the government, in the Obama-Biden administration, and ask whether they were doing things to help this country or that country at the request of the Bidens.”
House Republicans say Hunter Biden had significant access to the Obama administration during his father’s eight-year tenure as vice president. They also note that several former Obama-administration aides linked to Hunter Biden now hold high-ranking positions within the current White House.
Yahoo went on to report that:
Comer pointed to Hunter Biden’s work for the Ukranian energy company Burisma Holdings as something that will require further investigation.
“He joined the company when Joe Biden was kind of the Ukraine-czar and there are a lot of questions about Hunter’s shady business dealings that need to be answered,” said Comer.
Hunter Biden has, of course, been the subject of much scrutiny and criticisms in the face of multiple allegations. We reported later in September that Representative Jim Jordan told Maria Bartiromo that “something is up” with the probe because of an interestingly sudden interest in the story by the mainstream media. Mainstream media initially completely ignored the story or made sure to not report it on his laptop. We also reported that “My Son Hunter” is directed by Robert Davi; he starred in “The Goonies” as a counterfeiter and acted as an FBI agent in “Die Hard.” He decided it was time to get the story surrounding Hunter out into public view.
So, these wagons have been circling for some time and it may well come to light just how many bones Mr. Biden does have in his closet. Follow The Raging Patriot for more on this story as it develops.
