Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has slammed the double standards regarding the treatment of President Donald Trump’s family and the Bidens.
Speaking during an appearance on Fox News’s “Jesse Watters Primetime,” Graham dropped the hammer on the Biden family, demanding “the same level of scrutiny” the Trumps got for their overseas business dealings.
The senator argues that if the Bidens were treated in the same way as the Trumps, then “a special counsel is necessary.”
Graham told host Jesse Watters: “I want somebody to ask the questions of the Biden family that were asked of the Trump family — ‘What were your deals in Russia?’
“I want the same level of scrutiny.
“And if you believe this laptop is accurate and true, there’s a treasure trove of conflict of interest in that laptop.
“If you believe a special counsel is necessary to investigate the Trump family, how could you not believe that a special couple is necessary to investigate the Biden family?”
Pressure is now mounting on Congress and the White House to launch investigations into Joe Biden and his family’s business dealings.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is still trying to downplay the controversy, despite growing calls for a special counsel probe.
However, Fox News Peter Doocy is continuing to grill Psaki about the Biden family scandals.
Psaki said: “Well, first, the president has never had a conversation with the Department of Justice about any investigations into any member of his family.
“He said that during the campaign, and he will continue to abide by that.”
But Doocy fired back asking if White House chief of staff Ron Klain said last week that Biden is “confident his son did not break the law” isn’t it impossible for DOJ to be independent.
“But in the same answer to that question, Peter, during an interview this week on ABC, Ron Klain also said the Justice Department is independent, and they will make their own decisions.”
“And the president has said that he never spoke to his son about his overseas business dealings. Is that still the case?
“Yes,” Psaki said.

Former Utah US attorney Brett Tolman said:
“Conspiracy is a standalone crime in our country, and you’ve certainly got enough to present to the grand jury that there’s a conspiracy among Joe, brother James and Hunter to bring in money, to not declare that money, to not pay taxes on that money.
Washington, D.C., lawyer Jim Trusty, said:
“The question is whether Joe Biden’s vice presidency was for sale and whether Joe was complicit in that sort of scheme.”
