Byrne To Introduce Bill to Require Investigation of Hunter and Joe Biden

Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement announcing his resolution directing three House committees to begin investigating Hunter Biden’s business dealings during his father’s, Joe Biden, tenure as Vice President.

Congressman Byrne said: “While Democrats intensify their partisan scheme to impeach President Trump, they continue to turn a blind eye to the Biden scandal.  If the same facts in the Biden case occurred with one of President Trump’s children, Democrats would have already launched a full scale investigation.

“We must draw attention to the Democrats’ hypocrisy and demand a full investigation into the Bidens and their sketchy business dealings with China and Ukraine.  Instead of wasting time with the witch hunt against President Trump, Congress should demand answers from Joe and Hunter Biden and get to the bottom of all this nonsense.”

Congressman Byrne’s resolution calls for the House Committees on Foreign Affairs, Oversight and Government Reform, and Financial Services to begin investigations of business dealings of Hunter Biden during the period in which his father Joe Biden served as Vice President of the United States, whether those business dealings resulted in improper conflicts of interests, and whether Hunter Biden’s work affected United States foreign policy or a foreign government or foreign entity’s response. The resolution will be filed tomorrow and may be seen here.
