President Donald Trump went on the road this week to do what he does best: rally supporters.
Trump took the stage for a rally in Tuscon, AZ on Monday to the chants “USA! USA! By his supporters.
But what Trump said to them moments later really got them going.
“Joe Biden has always and always will be a corrupt politician,” Trump lamented.
“As far as I’m concerned, the Biden family is a criminal enterprise,” he continued.
Trump also told a crowd of his supporters that Biden “should’ve been locked up weeks ago” and that Biden is lucky Bill Bar is the Attorney General because “I know people would have had [Biden] locked up three weeks ago.”
“Bill Barr is a very nice and very fair man,” Trump added.
Before Trump hopped on his plane for the rally he told the media that “Joe Biden is a criminal”.
Members of the House of Representatives are now calling for Barr to appoint a special counsel to “investigate recent issues that have been raised about former Vice President Joe Biden’s involvement with his son’s business dealings.”
Here’s the letter to Barr which is co-signed by GOP Congressmembers Paul Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04), Ted Budd (NC-13), Jeff Duncan (SC-03), Jody Hice (GA-10), Mark Green (TN-07), Debbie Lesko (AZ-08), Louie Gohmert (TX-01), Ted Yoho, D.V.M. (FL-03), Andy Harris (MD-01), and Steve King (IA-04):
Dear Attorney General Barr,
Last week, reports surfaced about an uncovered hard drive and laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden. Emails, allegedly on the hard drive, have indicated that Hunter Biden may have helped to orchestrate a payout to his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, from his dealings with a Chinese energy corporation, and that he may have compromised the integrity of his father’s role as Vice President of the United States with his business dealings in Ukraine.
These alleged revelations raise serious issues about former Vice President Joe Biden’s reported participation with his son’s business dealings, specifically whether the former vice president (1) received foreign monies during his tenure in the Obama administration, and (2) if former Vice President Biden allowed his son to peddle access to his father with foreign business entities.
Americans deserve public officials who take great care to protect the integrity of their offices. Our constituents place great trust in their leaders at every level of government to conduct the people’s business with the utmost honesty, transparency, and accountability.
If these reports about former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are true, the former vice president fell far short of his responsibility to uphold his constitutional oath and betrayed the sacred trust of the American people.
It is imperative that the American people receive answers and a full accounting of former Vice President Biden’s dealings with his son and his son’s business partners, and if the former vice president misused his office for personal gain.
We request that the Department of Justice immediately appoint an independent, unbiased special counsel to investigate the issues that we have raised – as well as any corresponding legal or ethical issues that might be uncovered from the former vice president’s 47 years in public office.
We ask for a response to our request by Friday, October 23, 2020, at 5 PM EST.
Barr has yet to respond to the request.
