Republicans are preparing to investigate Hunter, James, and President Joe Biden’s history of shady business deals after the GOP likely reclaims the House in the midterm elections.
Plans have already begun to investigate the Biden family business. Demand letters are being written and strategies developed to ensure Hunter, Joe, and James Biden are held accountable for the misdeeds and falsehoods perpetrated on American citizens, which includes the establishment media’s suppression of the “Laptop From Hell” leading up to the 2020 presidential election.
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.
Some of the House members leading the charge are 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). The focus of the investigation will be on five fronts:
- Hunter’s influence peddling while Joe Biden was vice president.
- Family profit derived from the influence peddling.
- Continued business deals after Joe Biden became a civilian.
- Money collected by the Biden family despite no “discernible work” performed.
- 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 told Politico in July. Comer added he’s already strategizing about who the top Republicans will be to join him in the investigative effort.
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.”

“Winter is coming,” Gaetz emphatically stated. “We’re going to be in the majority, and then you’re going to have to answer these questions for the country.”
On Wednesday, Comer issued a demand letter to Hunter Biden’s wealth adviser to turn over “suspicious” bank records that are connected to the Biden family business schemes. Comer’s request is only a request, but after November, Comer will have the opportunity to compel Hunter’s wealth adviser to answer the demand letter.
Comer’s letter specifically requested information connected to 150 flagged wire transactions by U.S. banks between Hunter and James Biden. Comer suspects the wire transfers are linked to Hunter’s business accounts under Prewitt’s management. Hunter’s bank accounts are related to his corrupt businesses: Owasco PC, Owasco LLC, Skaneateles, and Rosemont Seneca Advisors. It should be noted Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) told CBS News in April that James and Hunter Biden were both directly paid by Chinese entities and promised retainer fees for their China work, receiving in total $165,000.
Grassley is not the only senator alarmed about the Biden family business. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), has demanded Joe Biden’s top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Merrick Garland, appoint a special counsel to provide a degree of separation between Biden’s administration and the probe. Legal experts have stated a special counsel is necessary because Joe Biden has denied any wrongdoing by Hunter and may have influenced the ongoing investigation.
Johnson has been particularly focused on the media’s role in covering up the Biden family scheme. “They covered it up,” Johnson told Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” “and as a result, they got Joe Biden elected; now they continue to cover up for him. But this is troubling. Now, we have actual bank records that verify what we reported. … the laptop is obviously a treasure-trove of additional corroborating evidence as well.”

As Republicans look to reclaim at least one chamber of Congress, Joe Biden’s team has refused to answer questions about the family’s business dealings on at least 11 occasions. “I am not going to talk about alleged materials on a laptop. It’s not happening,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has repeatedly said.
