Democrats did their best to bury the news that the government was investigating Hunter Biden. Social media sites even tried to block articles about his infamous laptop.
But despite all that, an investigation was underway. What is the latest from this case?
Some might be worrying that if Biden becomes president, this investigation will get swept under the rug.
But not if one congressman has anything to say about it.
From Daily Wire:
Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr this week requesting that the Department of Justice appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden to ensure that any misconduct can be dealt with without political interference…
“Americans have the right to know whether Mr. Biden’s reported ties to foreign governments will make him the subject of blackmail attempts or other nefarious efforts to undermine U.S. national security or otherwise improperly influence American foreign policy.”
Rep. Buck has requested that, as in the case with the Russian investigation, AG Barr appoint a special counsel to continue work on Hunter Biden.
We learned just before the election that the FBI was looking into evidence that emerged from a recovered laptop. That evidence, confirmed by Senate reports, suggested that Hunter Biden (and other family members) were compromised by foreign powers.
The worry is that if Biden enters the White House, those foreign entities might have influence over the country. We don’t know if the report is true and if they are, how deep they run.
But shouldn’t the American people know if Biden is compromised?
We can assume the Democrats would want to end this investigation immediately. It is unlikely Joe Biden himself would let this go on if he was president.
So, Buck believes the only way we can find out the truth is if a special counsel is appointed. As we know, a special counsel can operate independently from the DOJ.
A president would have a harder time ending an investigation conducted by one. That might lead to a thorough investigation of Biden and his connections.
But will that happen? And even if it does, will Biden and the rest of the family be brought to the light?
