Top Republicans call for House impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden over Hunter allegations

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is familiar with a congressional investigation into whether Joe Biden should be nominated for his son’s China officer positions.

Speaking on the podcast, Cruz said Hunter Biden used his record for his father to protect his lucrative business deals overseas.

It comes after the First Son, 53, last week pleaded guilty to federal prosecutors in Delaware on tax and gun charges.

But Cruz, the GOP leader, said Congress should open an investigation into whether the president himself used his seat to line his own pockets.

Cruz said on his podcast that Congress should open a possible impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden, given the allegations that he personally profited from Hunter’s company dealings.

“Look, this WhatsApp is direct evidence that Joe Biden is abusing his government powers to enrich his son and assuming the big man has 10% to enrich himself,” he said.

“Remember this WhatsApp app says ‘We want to know’. It’s not just me, Hunter, mocking my father … Of course the House should investigate,” the Republican claimed.

But any idea that an impeachment movement could succeed is far-fetched because the Senate, the highest house in Congress, is currently in Democratic control.

Conservatives have long argued that Hunter Biden is responsible for using his domestic connections to earn tens of millions of {dollars} overseas.

They are investigating his deals in Ukraine and China, which they say were made because he obtained a recording of his father, who was Barack Obama’s commander-in-chief.

The president’s son was staying at a guest house at Biden’s Delaware home when he wrote a letter to Communist Party official Henry Zhao on July 30, 2017, threatening to follow his “orders.”

In a 2017 WhatsApp message picked up by Cruz, Hunter sent a threatening message to a Chinese Communist Party official after Joe Biden left the VP job.

He hinted to Harvest Fund Management CEO Henry Zhao that if he did not comply with the unspecified demand, his father would be sure to punish him.

“And, Z, if I get a call or a text from anyone not involved in this case except for you, Zhang, or the chairman, I will make sure that between the man sitting next to me and every person he knows, and my ability to always hold in your hands. an offense you will regret if you do not follow my instructions.

“I’m sitting here with my father and I’m waiting for the call,” Hunter Biden reportedly said.

The accusations undermine persistent claims by the Biden household and administration that Joe is not concerned about his son’s international dealings.

Hunter’s lawyers have insisted that the WhatsApp was the chatter of a troubled man while on drugs.

On Friday, an attorney for IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley claimed that prosecutors have rebuffed his efforts to solve the WhatsApp story.

“Officers wanted to follow up on the matter, and prosecutors told them not to because maybe Hunter Biden would get angry or something,” Shapley’s attorney, Mark Lytle, said.

He told Fox News on Friday: “So the agent said, let’s get the GPS location of the father and son and see if they were actually in the same room at the time.”

On Thursday, the House Ways and Means Committee presented testimony from two IRS whistleblowers — along with Shapley — who said the Justice Department, FBI and IRS had interfered in the tax evasion investigation against Hunter Biden.

Jason Smith, the Missouri Republican who chairs the committee, said the testimony “sets out government misconduct and misconduct by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in their investigation of Hunter Biden.

“Whistleblowers describe how Biden’s Justice Department intervened and went too far in the campaign to protect Joe Biden’s son by delaying, revealing and denying the ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden’s alleged tax crimes.”

President Biden has helped his son Hunter with several lawsuits

Last week, Hunter Biden settled a baby aid dispute with his fugitive ex, Lunden Roberts, over funds for his or her daughter Navia Joan, 4.

The filing Thursday said: “The allegations point to an ongoing campaign of: unequal treatment of tax law enforcement; Justice Department interference in the form of delay, disclosure, and denial in the investigation of tax crimes allegedly committed by the president’s son; and finally, retaliatory actions against IRS employees who reported the violation.

Hunter Biden’s attorney, Chris Clark, who negotiated the deal with the Justice Department on Hunter’s behalf, called the whistleblower “biased” and argued the report was part of a “time of turmoil and addiction” for the president’s son.

He also disputed the veracity of Hunter’s statement about current President Biden in a WhatsApp message, saying his phrases “have nothing to do with any member of his family.”

“This week concluded an extensive five-year investigation by the US Department of Justice, which resulted in my client pleading guilty to two felony and felony tax evasion charges, as well as a firearms charge. , which will be continued. pursuant to a referral agreement,” Clark stated.

In addition, the first son managed to reach an out-of-court settlement with alleged ex-fugitive Lunden Roberts in the long-running dispute over child support funds.

The 53-year-old will now pay $5,000 a month to support his daughter Navi Joan, 4, whom he has by no means met.
