The House Judiciary, Ways and Means, and Oversight Committees released an interim 78-page staff report on the DOJ’s investigation into Hunter Biden, alleging political interference in the probe.
The report outlines several key findings, including the Justice Department’s prevention of stronger charges against Hunter Biden and the refusal to name a special counsel in the tax investigation.
The report also mentions that the Justice Department has not fully complied with requests for relevant documents, and the Committees are considering drafting articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden. (Trending: Elon Musk Condemns Arrest Of Jan 6 Protester)
• The Justice Department twice prevented United States Attorney David Weiss from bringing stronger charges against Hunter Biden.
• AG Merrick Garland refused to name a special counsel in the tax investigation.
• Assistant U.S. Attorney Lesley Wolf refused to allow investigators to ask about Joe Biden being “the big guy.”
• Wolf stopped questioning about “the big guy” to limit where the investigation could go despite evidence of Joe Biden’s involvement.
• Wolf cautioned the investigation team from searching Joe Biden’s guest house in Delaware for evidence against Hunter Biden because of “optics.”
• Hunter Biden demanded in 2017 to be paid by Chinese Communist Party-linked Chinese businessman Raymond Zhao while Joe Biden was “sitting” next to him in a room.
• Investigators wanted to obtain the location data to confirm Joe Biden was in the room, but there is no confidence the FBI obtained that data.
• Hunter Biden deducted payments to prostitutes and sex clubs from his taxes.
• The investigation into Hunter Biden began as an “offshoot” of inquiry into a foreign adult platform.
“Even still, despite these troubling findings, there is more information that the Justice Department is keeping from the Committees,” the committees wrote:
“The Justice Department has still not fully complied with requests for relevant documents, and it has impeded the Committees’ investigation by baselessly preventing two Tax Division officials—Senior Litigation Counsel Mark Daly and Trial Attorney Jack Morgan—from testifying, despite subpoenas compelling their testimony, wrote the House Committees.
“These documents and this testimony are necessary for the Committees to complete our inquiry,” argued the group.
“The Committees will continue to gather evidence to determine whether sufficient grounds exist to draft articles of impeachment against President Biden for consideration by the full House of Representatives,” promised the lawmakers.
