Hunter, James Biden Referred for Prosecution

( – Following a thorough probe seeking accountability, House Republicans recommended criminal charges against two members of Joe Biden’s family—his son Hunter Biden and brother James Biden.

The allegations center on claims that they lied during their testimony in the corruption-focused impeachment inquiry into Joe.

A letter addressed to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Special Counsel David Weiss suggested that both Bidens be charged with making false statements, with an additional charge of perjury proposed for Hunter.

Oversight Chairman James Comer (R-KY), Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) said in the letter that Hunter and James “made provably false statements … about key aspects of the impeachment inquiry, in what appears to be a conscious effort to hinder the investigation’s focus on President Joe Biden.”

The inquiry has raised questions about the millions of dollars earned by the Biden family and their businesses and probed potential influence-peddling that dates back to Joe’s tenure as vice president.

Both James and Hunter were subpoenaed and testified under oath in February, with their legal representatives present, to deny that Joe received any benefits from their business activities.

Whether federal prosecutors will take up the referral and charge either Biden remains uncertain, as a congressional referral does not mandate action.

The letter from the GOP lawmakers elaborates on Hunter’s deceptions concerning his connection to the corporate entity Rosemont Seneca Bohai, LLC, and its bank account.

It accuses him of receiving substantial sums from foreign parties, which were then funneled through the company’s account.

The letter also highlights James’s false statements regarding his interactions with Tony Bobulinski, a witness in the impeachment inquiry.

In a public hearing in March, Bobulinski accused both Hunter and James of perjury. James Biden expressed his distaste for Bobulinski and said he saw him as a “bully” during their interactions.

Hunter is currently managing legal battles in two criminal cases led by Weiss, which could lead to prison time.

He faces gun charges in Delaware and tax charges in California, though he pled not guilty in both. His trial concerning the gun charges began this week and the tax trial is scheduled for September.
