Lindsey Graham wants a clear response to the claims surrounding the Hunter Biden scandal. The South Carolina Senator wants a special counsel to investigate the nefarious dealings of the President-elect’s son. Hunter Biden pulled in millions while sitting on the board of Ukrainian energy firm, Burisma Holdings. Hunter also was connected to Russian oligarchs as well as businesses connected to the Chinese Communist Party. While Hunter Biden’s “tax affairs” are currently under investigation Lindsey Graham is seeking a special counsel investigation into Biden’s suspicious business deals.
The Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman raised the question, “If you believe a Special Counsel was needed to look at the Trump world regarding Russia, how can you say that there is no need for a Special Counsel regarding Hunter Biden?

Graham shared a few answers he’s hoping a special counsel will seek. Because, as he explained, this scandal will follow the Biden administration.
“How far integrated into the Ukrainian economy did Hunter Biden get when he was on the board of Burisma?” Graham wondered. “Somebody needs to look at his time on the board of Burisma. Somebody needs to look at his business dealings regarding China, to see if any crimes were committed. But mainly to see what kind of conflicts, if any, the Biden administration may have.”
This isn’t the first time Sen. Graham has suggested an aggressive investigation into Hunter Biden. During last year’s impeachment hearing of President Trump, the senator said that he’s friends with Joe Biden, but he couldn’t stay silent while witnessing such a double standard.

President-elect Joe Biden has been vague when asked about the scandal surrounding his son. When asked by reporters the President-elect has responded he is “proud” of his son and he’s “confident” Hunter has done nothing wrong.
