Following the GOP’s likely regaining of the House in midterm elections, House Republicans are gearing up to investigate Joe Biden’s company with the potential establishment of a select committee, according on Monday.
According to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), serious discussions have occurred among Republican members about the formation of a special committee for investigating the Biden family. “I can tell you that all of my conversations with my colleagues have been positive regarding a select committee,” he said.
Select committees are temporary bodies set up to investigate issues or consider other measures. The committee, according to Gaetz, would be comprised of members from the Foreign Affairs Committee, Oversight Committee, Financial Services, and Judiciary Committee with relevant knowledge. “Members have already spoken about what various committees may contribute to a select committee investigating Hunter Biden,” Gaetz said.
“It is clear to me that the Democratic Party has established a new standard for establishing a select committee, and how it may be ‘populated’ from the standpoint of congressional members,” Teetzel complained. “I’m not suggesting we form a select committee that would be for political payback — but to look into legitimate issues surrounding influence peddling and compromise, as well as leverage that might exist today over the Biden family,” he added.
Gaetz claims that some of Hunter Biden’s prior partners “may want to come forward” and speak with a select committee because the GOP National Committee’s research team released a list of 16 times Joe Biden has had a meeting with Hunter’s business associates. “We could have more Tony Bobulinskis who haven’t been given the security of a GOP majority that would safeguard whistleblowers and do something with the information,” he said.
Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) even went so far as to hint that Republicans would certainly request phone companies, expense reports, travel records, foreign officials, and international influence brokers that might link Pres. Joe Biden’s official activity with questionable business deals that Hunter was “clearly running in a number of countries.” If the House GOP gains control of the chamber, the subpoena power could be placed in their hands.
The Biden family’s business transactions, including Hunter’s firms of Rosemont Seneca and BHR, will be a high priority for House GOP because they may involve “extremely complex influence peddling” in the Biden family, according to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). It is Congress’ duty to pass laws that “make sure we do not have a compromised First Family,” he added. We need to know how influence in our government was purchased and sold through Hunter Biden’s various enterprises, he continued.
“Having someone ascend to the position of vice president, interacting with an adult son’s immediate and raging success as an international businessman, is probably not a pattern that we want to repeat as a nation,” he added. “Chinese authorities blessed a business license for Hunter Biden’s Bohai Harvest (BHR) firm entity astonishingly rapidly after his arrival in China on Air Force Two. As a result, we’ll want to talk to some individuals about it.”
