A number of Republican lawmakers are pushing for a probe into Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China. One senator is even demanding Atty. Gen. Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel.
Republicans from both the House and the Senate criticized “Biden, Inc.” for the lack of transparency about the younger Biden’s dealings in China that involved firms linked to the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party.
In a statement to Fox News Digital, Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) demanded Garland appoint a special counsel that will investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
“The Attorney General should immediately appoint a special counsel to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Communist China,” Blackburn said in her statement. “Joe and Hunter have been long intertwined with Beijing and profited off shady business deals with the CCP.”
“Hunter Biden’s firm even helped a Chinese company with a $3.8 billion cobalt mine purchase, and invested in a company with ties to high-level CCP officials,” she added. “Biden inc. must provide a list of the foreign business deals they’ve been involved in and come clean with the American people.”
According to Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), he and fellow Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) “released a report in Sept. 2020 revealing extensive financial transactions between the Biden family and individuals connected to the CCP, we knew that information was just the tip of the iceberg.”
“While more information about Hunter Biden’s questionable financial arrangements have come to light since then, the full extent of Biden Inc.’s financial entanglements with the CCP has yet to be uncovered,” he went on to say. “Senator Grassley and I are continuing our oversight efforts despite the Biden administration’s lack of transparency and potential cover-up.”
The Republican leadership in the House of Representatives also slammed the Biden administration, with Minority Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana stating that the “Biden Administration’s appeasement of China is dangerous, and the entanglements that people close to or directly in the Administration have with the CCP are alarming.”
“In fact, just this week, House Democrats have a bill on the floor that gives billions to UN slush funds that have sent American taxpayer dollars directly to the CCP,” Scalise also said, adding, “Full investigations into these practices are needed, and House Republicans will be conducting rigorous oversight when we take back control of the House.”
Meanwhile, House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (N.Y.), told Fox News Digital that “The American people deserve to know if Hunter Biden still holds a stake in Harves … Right now, President Biden is attempting to ram through legislation that will put the interests of the Chinese Communist Party ahead of the United States of America.”
“The American people deserve to know if it is because of Hunter Biden’s illegal and unethical business dealings with CCP. It is appalling that a president’s immediate family member could be a puppet for the CCP, and still, no special counsel has been called,” she went on to state. “This is corruption at its finest.”
Several other House Republicans shared their two cents on the issue. For one, Rep. Lisa McClain (R-Mich.) said it’s not surprising “President Biden is so weak on China, one of the biggest threats to America and the world, his own son is profiting from his close ties to the CCP.”
“Hunter Biden’s ties to foreign countries are not only concerning, but dangerous to our national security,” McClain mentioned. “We need some transparency from the White House on what foreign entities the Biden family continues to profit from.”
