Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has called for a special counsel to be appointed to investigate links between President Joe Biden’s family members and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Blackburn is urging Attorney General Merrick Garland to appoint a special counsel as concerns mount over the Biden family’s business dealings in China.
Blackburn said: “I think what we know or what we can surmise by looking at all of this is that it is appropriate and the Attorney General should appoint a special counsel to investigate what has happened with Biden Incorporated and Hunter Biden, James Biden, Joe Biden, and their business dealings with Communist China and the Chinese Communist Party.
“The picture that appears to be coming together is that Biden Incorporated has focused on dealing with these foreign entities, and we see Hunter Biden as more or less a centerpiece of this, and then you have Joe and James Biden and other families who you would think must be involved with this via Biden Incorporated.
“It is troublesome, it is worrisome, this is not good for the country.
“This is why we need to move forward with a special counsel.
“We need to get a special counsel appointed and investigate exactly what happened with these business dealings.
“We know that Hunter Biden flew to China on Air Force Two with his father for an official visit.
“We know that he went forward with meetings that he did not want the Secret Service to accompany him to those meetings.
“So, there should be, for the good of the American people and for answering these questions, there should be a special counsel who would review this, and if this investigation is still ongoing, we would hope that we would hear from the grand jury at some point as to the information they have and the next steps that they would take.
“It appears that they have enough information that they moved forward with the subpoena to JPMorgan Chase and that you would think this is still an ongoing and active investigation.
“Looking at all of the information that has now been compiled into one place would lead me to think the appropriate step is for the AG to appoint a special counsel to investigate these business dealings because whether you look at what has transpired with Communist China, with Russia, Burisma that was located there in Ukraine, and whatever else may be involved with this, it is important to get to the bottom of this.
“I think you look at the fact that Joe and Hunter Biden have been intertwined in these business deals.
“You’ve got photographic evidence of Joe Biden attending some of Hunter’s events.
“You want to get to the bottom of what has happened, shaded by these business deals, and how they have profited off of these business deals and what the continuing affiliation from Hunter Biden or from James Biden is on some of these foreign entities at this point.
“AG Garland comes before us regularly for hearings and review and it would be appropriate he would be questioned on this.
“Even before that, without waiting until we get the majority back and waiting until we get the gavel, it would be important that we get some clarity around this situation.
“This is a very serious issue,” the senator warns.
“When you look at the amount of scrutiny that was placed on President Trump and his family and the accusations that turned out to be misinformation with all of that about Russia, it was not right.
“Here, you have these allegations about Hunter Biden and Biden Incorporated.
“Now, James Biden is pulled into that. Answers should be forthcoming sooner rather than later.
“If we don’t get them, then absolutely,” she said.
“It would be completely appropriate for the Senate Judiciary Committee to move forward with hearings delving into the issue of what actually has transpired around these interactions that Hunter Biden and Biden Incorporated have had with these different foreign entities.”
