Republican lawmakers are calling for an investigation into the Department of Justice’s handling of the Hunter Biden investigation. Ohio Republican Jim Jordan has demanded documents from Attorney General Merrick Garland regarding the probe and expressed concern about the “appearance of a conflict of interest” by the DOJ in not appointing a special counsel for investigations into Hunter Biden.
Jordan has also requested documents from employees in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Delaware relating to the status of a special counsel for the Hunter Biden investigation, along with communications between employees of U.S. attorney’s offices who could bring charges against Biden.
Wisconsin GOP Sen. Ron Johnson is also urging his colleagues in the House to interview the intelligence officials who signed a letter casting doubt on the Hunter Biden laptop story back in 2020.
Johnson claims that “it’s one of the hallmarks of money laundering” and that Hunter Biden’s work for Patrick Ho, who was convicted of money laundering, makes it “pretty easy to put two and two together.”
Additionally, Garland appointed the U.S. attorney in Chicago to review classified documents discovered at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.
