If Republicans regain control of the House, which polls suggest is very likely, they are preparing to investigate Hunter Biden as well as Joe Biden and his brother, James.
The entire family has been implicated in Hunter’s corrupt overseas business dealings.
In preparation, Republicans say they are already writing their demand letters and developing their strategies to ensure the Biden family is held accountable.
The effort will be led by Oversight Committee ranking member Rep. James Comer (R-KY), GOP leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
Here are the areas in which the investigation will reportedly focus:
1. Hunter’s influence peddling while Joe Biden was vice president.
2. Family profit derived from the influence peddling.
3. Continued business deals after Joe Biden became a civilian.
4. Money collected by the Biden family despite no “discernible work” performed.
5. False statements that Joe Biden never spoke to his family about the business deals.
“We’re going to spend a lot of time in the first three, four months having investigation hearings and then we’re going to be very active in the subcommittee process… I’m going to bring the Oversight Committee back to what its original intent was,” Comer said.
More from Breitbart:
The investigation will undoubtedly focus on Hunter and James’s business deals, which Joe Biden and his staff have claimed at least seven times that the president has not been involved in. Yet 17 pieces of evidence show Joe Biden has played an influential role in his son Hunter and brother James’s activities.
According to a Harris poll, 58 percent of voters believe that Joe Biden has played a role in his family’s business. Sixty percent say Hunter Biden has sold “influence and access” to the president…
Comer also explained who and what will be the focus on the investigation. “There are decisions that Joe Biden’s making every day in this White House that are questionable, that go against what I think the majority of Americans would expect from the White House,” Comer said, “and yet, these decisions are made, in my opinion, because he was compromised by his son’s shady business dealings.”
Firebrand Gaetz is also focused on the investigation. On Thursday, Gaetz slammed Assistant Attorney General for the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, Matthew Olsen, for not being willing to answer whether “Hunter Biden [is] a national security threat.”
