Jonathan Turley Calls for Biden to Testify Before Grand Jury Investigating ‘Lobbying for Foreign Interests’

Liberal law professor Jonathan Turley has called for Democrat President Joe Biden to testify before the grand jury that’s investigating his son Hunter for “lobbying for foreign interests.”

Legal scholar Turley was responding to the news that the Department of Justice (DOJ) is weighing whether to charge Hunter Biden criminally for multiple federal charges.

Federal officials are considering several charges against Hunter Biden that include tax evasion, foreign lobbying, and making false statements.

Hunter Biden has been under federal investigation since 2018.

The younger Biden’s mounting scandals have also been reignited recently after his iCloud account was hacked and leaked online.

The leak includes videos, images, and text messages exposing his involvement in multiple crimes.

Turley said: “There are reports that the grand jury is looking at criminal charges against Hunter Biden for lobbying, gun, and tax offenses.

“While the grand jury may be at a ‘critical stage,’ the stage for a special counsel passed some time ago.

“It is also curious how you get to a ‘critical stage’ in the Grand Jury on such charges without hearing testimony from the person referenced as ‘The Big Guy‘ who would receive a ten percent cut and Hunter’s uncle who helped in some of these dealings.

“That is the type of evidence that would establish a conspiracy or broader criminal enterprise.

“The concern is that a narrow criminal case could be brought that avoid such implications and allows for a plea bargain.

“That is why a special counsel can serve to assure the public that there is no influence in the scope, timing, or charges in the investigation.

“Finally, if you are investigating a FARA violation in lobbying for foreign interests, wouldn’t the grand jury want to hear from the object of that lobbying, Joe Biden?

“Emails repeatedly show Hunter referencing his father to clients in this influence peddling scheme.”

This is not the first time Turley has called for an investigation into Joe Biden, however.

“Hunter clearly only had influence and access to sell,” Turley wrote last year.

“The tranche of emails raises a new and disturbing element: the possible mixing of accounts and funds between Hunter and his father,” he added.

“If true, President Biden could be directly implicated in ongoing investigations into his son’s money transfers and dealings.

“‘The Big Guy’ is now president and his administration is handling an investigation that could have political as well as legal implications for him and his family.

“It may be time for a special counsel.”
