Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani claims he tried to give Hunter Biden’s laptop to a few prominent Republicans, but they refused to report on it.
During an interview on Newsmax, Giuliani claimed he tried to give the laptop to Fox News host Sean Hannity, conservative reporter John Solomon, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“I had this whole thing – let’s say half of it; certainly enough to prosecute — in 2019. I gave it to Hannity in early 2019, then to John Solomon, then to Mike Pompeo, who also buried it. And you should know that now that he’s running for president — and I will tell you the whole story about that at some point. I’ll write it out. And then Barr buried it in January of 2020, and I didn’t know that Barr has the hard drive,” Giuliani said.
Expected incoming House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan believes there’s been a seismic shift regarding the ongoing federal investigation of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden.
In an interview on Fox News with host Sean Hannity, the Ohio Republican suggested “something is up” with the probe because of a new interest in the story by many of the same media outlets that initially dismissed reports of corruption evidence stemming from materials and emails obtained from a laptop he reportedly abandoned at a computer repair store in Delaware in 2019.
“It sure looks like Joe Biden was involved,” Jordan added. “So, my, how this story has changed. And now, we find out these text messages and emails that link the entire family, not just Hunter and Joe and — but also uncle, the — Joe’s brother, James Biden, is involved in this as well.”
It’s not just Jordan, either.
Kentucky GOP Rep. James Comer, who will become the chairman of the House Oversight and Reform Committee in January, told the Washington Post that Republicans plan to launch investigations very soon.
“As soon as possible. I don’t know what’s going to happen on Jan. 3 [when the House will meet to elect the next speaker]. I’m like everyone else — I’m hoping for the best. But we’ve got a couple of different hearings that we feel are ready to go. We would like to have a committee hearing every week that we’re in session,” Comer said.
“We’re ready to go with a hearing with respect to some of the covid funds. There’s been no oversight over the hundreds of billions and trillions of dollars spent in the name of covid over the past three years. That will be one of the first hearings. You’ll remember a few weeks ago when McCarthy went to the border, he said he was going to put Jordan and Comer in charge of investigating the debacle at the southern border. We’re ready to go definitely out of the gate on covid funds and [the] border crisis,” he added.
The Post then asked Comer: “Do you plan on investigating Washington’s influence industry more broadly, or will the investigation be focused solely on Hunter Biden’s business deals?”
Comer responded: “Right now we’re focusing on Joe Biden. We’ll be looking into Hunter and Jim Biden — people forget about Jim, he’s just as bad as Hunter — with respect to influence-peddling. Sometimes these investigations uncover other areas that need to be looked into, so we’ll see what happens. I’m hoping that at the end of this investigation, there’s a legislative fix as to define what exactly is influence-peddling and what should be legal, what should not be legal.”
“We need to have very thorough disclosure laws so we know, if [a president’s] immediate family members are doing business with [a foreign] country, this is exactly what they’re doing. These are the terms of the agreement. This is what they’re selling over there. This was what their sales were before their relative became president. This is what their sales were once he became president,” Comer said.
