House GOP sends Hunter, James Biden criminal referrals to DOJ for prosecution

House Republicans have sent criminal referrals for two Biden family members to the Justice Department, daring the administration to back up its talk about the integrity of the judicial system.

On Wednesday, a trio of GOP leaders referred Hunter Biden and James Biden to the DOJ calling for them to face charges over making false statements to Congress about “key aspects” of the impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden.

In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Special Counsel David Weiss, the committee leaders said that the false statements “implicate Joe Biden’s knowledge and role in his family’s influence peddling schemes and appear to be a calculated effort to shield Joe Biden from the impeachment inquiry.”

The letter is signed by House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) and includes more than 60 pages of examples of the two members of the Biden clan breaking the law to protect “The Big Guy.”

“Lying to Congress is a serious crime with serious consequences. Both Hunter and James Biden did just that. They lied to cover up President Biden’s involvement in their family’s international influence-peddling schemes that have generated millions of dollars,” Rep. Jordan said.

“These criminal referrals are a reflection of criminal wrongdoing by the Biden family, and the Department of Justice must take steps to hold the Bidens accountable,” he added.

“Our investigation has revealed President Biden knew about, participated in, and benefitted from his family cashing in on the Biden name around the world. Despite this record of evidence, President Biden continues to lie to the American people about his involvement in these influence-peddling schemes. It appears making false statements runs in the Biden family,” Rep. Comer said in a statement.

“We’ve caught President Biden’s son and brother making blatant lies to Congress in what appears to be a concerted effort to hide Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s schemes. As part of our efforts to hold the Bidens accountable for profiting off public office, we are today referring Hunter and James Biden to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution for making false statements to Congress. This is not the end of our efforts to hold the Bidens accountable; it’s only the beginning,” the Oversight chairman added, vowing accountability for the crooked clan.

The criminal referrals now force the Biden regime to show that justice is equally applied under the law and that the system isn’t just a political weapon to be used against former President Donald J. Trump, his supporters, and Republicans.

“President Biden claims no one is above the law. We will soon see his Department of Justice put that principle to the test. Congress cannot allow anyone, not even the president’s son or his brother, to stand in the way of its oversight of the executive branch or deny the American people the accountability they deserve,” Rep. Smith said.
