11 Republicans, including Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., Ted Yoho, R-Fla., and Andy Harris, R-Md, wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr, urging him to appoint a special counsel to investigate allegations related to Hunter Biden and the potential involvement of Joe Biden.
“Last week, reports surfaced about an uncovered hard drive and laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden,” reads the letter to Barr. “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 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,” continued the communication.
“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’sdealings 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.”
