Support Is Growing Among Republicans

Republicans in Congress are growing supportive of appointing a special counsel to examine charges of criminality and corruption involving Hunter Biden, with some senators suspecting unethical and compromising ties to his father.

Hunter Biden took used his father’s position as Vice President to create business contacts with clients in Ukraine, China, and Kazakhstan, according to the legislators.

Letter to Garland

Ninety-five House Republicans signed a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland. It reads in part, “It is increasingly clear that Hunter Biden took advantage of his father’s position as Vice President to develop business relationships with clients in Ukraine, China, and Kazakhstan. Hunter Biden likely facilitated lobbying for foreign entities through third-party channels without registering for the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

“It appears that Hunter Biden used his position as son of then-Vice President Biden to gain wealth and influence in foreign countries, using questionably sourced money to pay tax liabilities, and lobbying on behalf of foreign entities without proceeding through the proper channels,” the letter continues.
