(RepublicanNews.org) – Presidential son Hunter Biden’s troubles continue to multiply as two Congressional committees led by Republicans set their sights on Hunter and President Joe Biden’s business deals in Russia and Ukraine.
The House Oversight Committee, chaired by Kentucky Republican James Comer, said Congress needs to determine if the Biden family’s foreign business dealings have compromised US national security.
Scrutiny of Biden the younger is only increasing after the discovery of documents marked “classified” at President Biden’s D.C. think tank, the Biden-Penn Center, and at the President’s Wilmington, Delaware, home garage.
Committee Chairman Comer said he wants to know if Hunter Biden’s “shady business partners” in Russia and China could get their hands on any of these classified papers. The Biden family has a pattern of “peddling access to the highest levels of government to enrich themselves,” according to a statement on the Committee’s website.
Comer and others have launched other inquiries in the past looking at Hunter Biden’s business practices. One probe sought to confirm allegations that Hunter Biden’s company received more than $3 million in 2014 from a consulting relationship with a “Russian Oligarch.”
The Committee has also looked at Hunter Biden’s involvement in the sale of a cobalt mine in Africa to a Chinese company in 2016.
While the most recent discovery of classified documents at President Biden’s Wilmington home have raised obvious questions for the President, they may implicate Hunter Biden, too. Hunter Biden has apparently lived in the Wilmington house referring to it as a “personal asset.” The younger Biden was paying his father, President Joe Biden, an astounding $49,000 a month to occupy the residence.
With characteristic bombast, President Donald Trump commented on the sky-high rental situation on his social media platform Truth Social. He called it the beginning of “one of the greatest political and money laundering scams of all time.”
Hunter Biden rose to the top of Americans’ minds in late 2020 during the presidential race between his father and then-incumbent Donald Trump. The New York Post published an exclusive story about Hunter Biden’s laptop, which had been left at a computer repair business. The laptop appeared to contain files and videos of a salacious nature.
The social media network Twitter almost immediately banned the Post’s Twitter account, prompting accusations that the network was trying to throw the outcome of the election by depriving voters of unfavorable information about the Democratic contender preferred by Silicon Valley.
