Republicans on the Oversight Committee bring Obama’s White House into the Hunter-Biden scandal

According to reports over the weekend, several House Republicans are pushing for records of communications between Hunter Biden and the Obama White House.

GOP members of the House Oversight Committee wrote a letter to the Biden administration requesting access to these records. according to to The Epoch Times.

Republicans said President Joe Biden’s son must now be investigated amid growing concerns that “he continues to capitalize on his father’s name.”

“Hunter Biden’s connections throughout the Russian sphere of influence have now become particularly relevant in the fast-developing Russian war in Ukraine,” the letter said.

“Hunter Biden’s dealings have not gone unnoticed, and a Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation begun under the Obama administration has expanded to include a variety of potential violations and crimes. According to the New York Times, Hunter Biden is currently under investigation by the DOJ for possible violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act and possible criminal tax evasion and money laundering,” the letter continued.

“Given Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings in Ukraine and Russia and the current international landscape, we are concerned that Hunter Biden will continue to benefit from his status as President Biden’s son and that foreign adversaries may seek to exploit questionable business dealings. NARA may have documents relevant to this investigation from the administration of then-Vice President Biden,” the Republican committee added.

GOP members also called out the president, accusing him of not being honest about his involvement in his son’s business deals with foreign organizations. They wrote that “the evidence is now clear” that he was not only aware, but likely involved.

They added that they are even more concerned now that Hunter Biden is on the list of sanctioned persons designated by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“While then-Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden stated, ‘I have never spoken to my son about his foreign affairs,’ this does not appear to be the case. The evidence is now clear that Joe Biden not only discussed his overseas business with his son, but also met with his son’s associates,” the letter said.

“President Biden’s misleading statements are of even greater concern now that Russia has placed Hunter Biden on its sanctions list in place of one of the other Biden children,” lawmakers noted.

They demand:

  1. All documents and communications between the Executive Office of the President or the Office of the Vice President and members or associates of the Biden family relating to or relating to Russia or Ukraine, from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017;
  2. All documents and communications from or within the Executive Office of the President or the Office of the Vice President relating to Elena Baturina or Yuri Luzhkov from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017;
  3. All documents and communications in NARA custody relating to or related to Hunter Biden and Ukraine or Hunter Biden and Russia; and
  4. All documents and communications between the office of then-Vice President Biden and any State Department official pertaining to or related to Hunter Biden and his business dealings in Russia and/or Ukraine.

“White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said Thursday that Biden told the truth in a presidential debate in late 2020 that Hunter Biden made no money in China or any other foreign business,” The Epoch Times reported.

“We absolutely stand by the President’s comment,” she said. “And I would like to draw your attention to the coverage of this that was based on statements that we made at the time and that we gave to the Washington Post who were working on this story. But as you know, I don’t speak for Hunter Biden, so I can’t say more than that.”
