Smith, Comer, Jordan: Congress Investigating DOJ & IRS Misconduct With Respect to Hunter Biden Allegations
JUNE 28, 2023
WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Jason Smith (R-Mo.), Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), and Committee on the Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), today issued the following statement on their commitment to pursue a thorough inquiry into misconduct at the Department of Justice and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) with respect to the Hunter Biden investigation:

“Politicization and misconduct at the Department of Justice and IRS during the investigation into Hunter Biden reveal a two-tiered system of justice and unequal application of the law. According to whistleblower testimony, the Justice Department refused to follow evidence that implicated Joe Biden, tipped off Hunter Biden’s attorneys, allowed the clock to run out with respect to certain charges, and put tax-cheat Hunter Biden on the path towards a sweetheart plea deal. This is a mockery of the core American value of equal justice under the law.

“This weaponization of the federal law-enforcement power to benefit the Bidens adds to Americans’ growing mistrust in our institutions. If we are to remain a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, Congress has a duty to conduct rigorous oversight of this abuse of power and hold bad actors accountable. Our committees are pursuing a thorough investigation into this misconduct to deliver the transparency and accountability that the American people demand and deserve.”

…Luft agreed to covertly recruit and pay, on behalf of principals based in China, a former high-ranking U.S. government official (Individual-1), including in 2016 while the former official was an adviser to the then-President-elect, to publicly support certain policies with respect to China without Luft or Individual-1 filing a registration statement as an agent of a foreign principal with the Attorney General of the United States…”


The right wingnut controlled House of Representatives is a freakin’ clown show.
