On Friday, at an event in The Queen Theater in Wilmington, Delaware, former Vice President Joe Biden held a press conference where he revealed his administration officials.
Towards the end of the event, one reporter asked Biden, “Did Hunter Biden commit a crime? Have you spoken to your son?”
Biden can be seen getting caught off guard by the question. He froze and then said, “I’m proud of my son,” before he rushed off the stage.
It is unclear what exactly his son did to make him proud, but at least we know he’s a proud father.
Earlier this week, Republican Representative Ken Buck wrote a letter to Attorney General William Barr, urging the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden.
“I write to request that the Department of Justice (DOJ) appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Mr. Hunter Biden’s conduct and the contents of his laptop that is currently in the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) possession,” Buck had written in the letter to Barr. “This investigation is critical to defending the integrity of our republic and ensuring a potential Biden Administration will not be the subject of undue foreign interference. Americans have the right to know whether Mr. Biden’s reported ties to foreign governments will make him the subject of blackmail attempts or other nefarious efforts to undermine U.S. national security or otherwise improperly influence American foreign policy.”
“As you know, the Attorney General is granted the statutory authority to appoint a Special Counsel under 28 U.S.C. § 515 and 28 CFR § 600 to investigate and prosecute any matter that would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other extraordinary circumstances,” Buck added. “Similar to when the DOJ appointed Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, it is critical that this investigation continue free from political interference, no matter who is in the White House. We must guarantee the integrity of our government and the security of our republic.”
“As such, I urge the DOJ to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s actions and the potentially incriminating contents of his laptop to ensure this important investigation will be completed,” Buck went on to say. “Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this request.”
