Republicans Bypass DOJ, Move Forward With Hunter Biden Investigation

Congressional Republicans for once should try not to screw this one up.
According to Rep. Darrell Issa – a ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee — Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings are already being investigated by Congress. He said Republicans are in full possession of Hunter’s laptop and are currently combing through the content for evidence.

On Sunday, the California Republican revealed that GOP lawmakers are not waiting for the appointment of a special prosecutor and apparently have a copy of the infamous laptop believed to have belonged to the president’s son.

“In the meantime, we’re investigating it. We have the laptop,” the California Republican said on Fox News, calling it a “treasure trove” before reminding the audience of Hunter’s business transactions.

Details about Hunter Biden’s business dealings and personal life have emerged in the media thanks to copies of a laptop and hard drive. The FBI took possession of the actual hardware after the owner, believed to be Biden, left it for repairs in April 2019 and never returned.

Biden’s financial affairs, including business dealings tied to countries such as Ukraine, China, and Russia, are under scrutiny in a federal criminal investigation. Biden has never publicly denied that the laptop belonged to him but has insisted he is “100% certain” he will be cleared of wrongdoing.

As Republicans in the House gear up for a full-force investigation, if they take control of the chamber after this year’s midterm elections, dozens of GOP colleagues are pressuring the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel. They have raised concerns of there being a conflict of interest “that could prevent a fair and impartial investigation of his activities,” according to a recent letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Issa, who is the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee’s panel on intellectual property and the internet, has already sent out document preservation notices in preparation for an investigation into any efforts to suppress news coverage about Biden’s laptop in the run-up to the 2020 election.

A federal grand jury witness was asked to identify the infamous “big guy” mentioned in discussions regarding a Chinese business deal involving Biden.

The answer that was given was not reported, though some have claimed the “big guy” is President Joe Biden, raising the prospect that the commander in chief could be drawn into a federal criminal investigation.

Now more than ever conservative voters must elect Republicans to office come November.

The Red Tsunami needs to be even more obliterating than anyone ever predicted.
