Representative Nancy Mace (R-SC) scorched the Justice Department at a press conference this morning for delaying action on findings showing that Hunter Biden and other family members allegedly participated in schemes to grant foreign companies access to America’s halls of power.
“The DOJ needs to get off its ass… If any of these allegations are proven true, then someone with the last name Biden needs to be charged, prosecuted, and maybe spend a little time in prison to take account and responsible for the actions they’ve taken today,” said Rep. Mace.
On Wednesday, House Oversight Chair James Comer released a memo detailing the committee’s investigations and outlining the next steps. Findings from financial records obtained through subpoenas of banks utilized by Hunter Biden and associates allegedly show that they lobbied on behalf of Chinese corporations, a disclosure that should have required the president’s son and his colleagues to register as foreign agents.
At the same time, the Justice Department is preparing to take action against Hunter Biden for violations associated with tax records and lying about a firearms purchase on documents submitted to authorities. The charges under consideration involve three misdemeanor counts and one felony gun charge.
“This is not a witch hunt. This is not a conspiracy theory,” added Rep. Mace, who sought to downplay attacks from Democrats that House Republicans are unfairly targeting a private citizen and corporate bank records that do not show any nefarious activity by President Biden.
However, Rep. Comer’s investigation has unearthed up to a dozen Biden family members who received payments resulting from the representation of foreign companies, a development that on its face seems likely to have triggered interest from Biden following his time as vice president.
The White House is bracing for possible charges against the president’s son, whose attorneys last month met with prosecutors. Republicans are sure to seize on the news and tie the unpopular president to the charges as he prepares to seek reelection in 2024.
