A Republican representative is asking Attorney General Merrick Garland to form a special counsel to investigate President Biden’s son. While Hunter Biden’s laptop is what truly merits a deep investigation it’s his recent accent to the world that has Rep. Ken Buck concerned.
During a House Judiciary Committee meeting, the Colorado representative showed two pieces of art by Hunter, each of which auctioned between $500,000 and $700,000.
The New York Post reports:
“You may recognize this painting is a Hunter Biden. The Hunter Biden painting sold for $500,000,” Buck said, noting that the president’s son lacks an artistic background and was unable to find a gallery to list his artwork before 2020.
“And what happened in 2020 that changed all that, is that his dad became president of the United States. Now a single piece of art from Hunter Biden sells for more than the average American home.”
Rep. Buck noted that his office previously sent a letter to Garland which never received a reply. The Attorney General claimed he was unaware of any letter.
“It is now apparent that President Biden could be directly implicated in the ongoing investigations into his son’s money transfers and dealings, raising serious questions regarding whether then Vice President Joe Biden was aware of and possibly benefitted from the influence peddling operation led by his son,” Buck wrote.
“It is now more critical than ever to appoint a special counsel who can lead this investigation in an impartial way. As outlined in 28 CFR § 600, the attorney general has the right to appoint a special counsel to investigate and prosecute matters and individuals that present a conflict of interest for the department when it is in the public interest. Allowing the investigation to continue to be handled according to the normal practices of the department means that Senate-confirmed political appointees who can only be removed from office by the president are now overseeing an investigation into his son’s, and possibly his, financial dealings related to a prior, or possibly ongoing, influence-peddling scheme.”
Will the Attorney General finally investigate the obvious corruption of the Biden family or continue to look the other way?
