In the letter, House Republicans refer to a bomb report from the New York Post published in the weeks leading up to the 2020 presidential election detailing the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop that suggested he was using his father’s position of power for his own financial gain.

“This article has raised doubts about President Biden’s refusal to ever speak to you about your international business dealings,” the letter said. “The Post reported an email in which a Ukrainian businessman urged you to ‘use your influence to convey a message/signal etc. in order to stop what we consider to be politically motivated actions.” In another email, the same businessman thanked you for arranging a meeting with your father, then Vice President Biden, the calling it “an honor and a pleasure. The Post reported that these emails came from a laptop computer belonging to you that you dumped at a computer store in Delaware.”

Republicans continue to call on the Biden campaign and administration to constantly dismiss the contents of the laptop as “Russian disinformation” while claiming that father and son never discussed the latter’s business dealings abroad.

“Contrary to claims by the Biden campaign and prominent Democrats, the content of the New York Post reporting has never been refuted,” the letter continued. “On the contrary, eighteen months after the Post article, other news outlets are finally confirming the Post’s reporting.”


The Republicans added that Congress has “an obligation to examine these facts” and explained that “material preservation is essential for us to conduct a comprehensive review of these issues.”

The letter comes the same day Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee rejected a motion by Republicans to subpoena Hunter Biden as a witness during his hearing on electrifying the Postal Service’s vehicle fleet. American (USPS).

“Democrats just defeated our motion to subpoena Hunter Biden,” tweeted the committee’s GOP members. “They refuse to hold Hunter accountable for his shady business dealings that make us more dependent on China for renewable energy. Accountability is long overdue.”

Last week, Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson traveled to the Senate to sound the alarm over what they say are troubling financial entanglements between President Bidenthe son hunter and the Chinese government in the form of a receipt provided by the senators showing a state-controlled Chinese energy company paying Wells Fargo Clearing Services $100,000 with “additional credit” going to Owasco, Hunter Biden’s company.

“CEFC operated under the guise of a private company but was for all intents and purposes an arm of the Chinese government,” Grassley said. “Hunter Biden and James Biden were the perfect vehicle through which the Chinese Communist government was able to gain inroads here in the United States through CEFC and its affiliates.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klein noted Sunday that the president is “confident”, Hunter Biden has committed no wrongdoing.

“Of course, the president is satisfied that his son did not break the law,” Klain said, “but most importantly, as I said, this is a matter that will be decided by the Department of Justice, through the legal process. This is something that nobody in the White House is involved in.”
