‘Almost Comedy’: Biden Dismisses Possible House GOP Investigation Of His Family

When a reporter asked President Biden on Wednesday about the possibility that a House of Representatives controlled by Republicans might investigate Biden’s family, especially his son Hunter, Biden dismissively replied that such an effort would be “almost comedy.”

“Republicans have made it clear that if they do take control of the House, that they want to launch a raft of investigations on day one into your handling of Afghanistan, the border. They want to look into some of your Cabinet officials,” the reporter stated. “They want to investigate you. They may even want to investigate your son. What’s your message to Republicans who are considering investigating your family and, particularly, your son Hunter’s business dealings?”

“‘Lots of luck in your senior year,’ as my coach used to say,” Biden said derisively, adding, “I mean, I think the — I think the American people will look at all of that for what it is. It’s just almost comedy.”

Biden’s dismissiveness may prove to be premature. Luke Rosiak of The Daily Wire reported in late October:

A year-long exploration of Hunter Biden’s laptop has yielded a 630-page report that its authors say document 459 violations of state and federal laws and regulations by President Joe Biden’s son and his business partners.

Marco Polo, a nonprofit formed by a one-time aide to former President Trump to enable a team of cyber gumshoes to take a deep dive into the laptop that the  crack-addled Biden left at a Delaware repair store, claims the report is a road map for local, state, or federal prosecutors to pursue charges. The group also sent its report to each member of Congress.

In late October, Twitter CEO Elon Musk fired Twitter’s top lawyer Vijaya Gadde, who ran legal policy, trust, and safety for the company. The Daily Mail reported Gadde “played a key role in the contentious decisions to ban Donald Trump and suppress news articles about Hunter Biden’s laptop.”

At the end of August, GOP Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) sent a letter to the Department of Justice noting:

… apparently as a result of the FBI’s warning, for “5-7 days’”after the reporting relating to Hunter Biden and his laptop, Facebook intentionally decreased the distribution of the reporting and limited the amount of people who could review the reports by a ‘meaningful’ volume, Facebook wasn’t the only social media company that wrongfully suppressed Hunter Biden reporting; Twitter suspended the New York Post’s account because of its Hunter Biden reporting and blocked users from sharing the link to the Post’s articles relating to the laptop.

The senators continued:

Please provide the following no later than September 12, 2022: All records relating to the Justice Department’s and FBI’s contact with Facebook, Twitter, and other social media companies relating to the Biden family, Senator Grassley’s and Senator Johnson’s Biden investigation, Hunter Biden’s laptop, and Russian disinformation from July 1, 2020, to July 1, 2021.
