Hunter Biden's year went from bad to worse this week, as did President Joe Biden's Department of Justice.
That's because House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) dug in deeper in his quest to expose Hunter Biden, this time joined by Rep. Majorie Taylor-Green (R-GA) in a request to the Justice Department regarding its handling of Hunter's involvement with prostitutes.
According to the Washington Examiner, the two powerful Republicans penned a letter to the Justice Department, asking if the DOJ is "upholding the rights of victims who were sexually exploited."
The request for information comes in the wake of a similar letter written to the DOJ in July.
The Examiner noted:
The pair sent a similar letter to the department in July, requesting “information regarding DOJ’s handling of victims’ rights” in the Hunter Biden investigation and a staff-level briefing on the fund. The DOJ did not respond to their letter by the deadline despite confirming receipt of the letter.
The two Republicans held nothing back in their latest attempt to garner information from the Justice Department.
"It is unclear to the Committee as to why you both made the alarming decision to ignore our original request," the GOP lawmakers wrote.
It added: "This conduct is unprofessional and concerning given your leadership roles at DOJ. Considering the seriousness of this obstructive behavior, we request information as to whether anyone advised you not to respond to our inquiry, including any Department employee at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, DOJ Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA), Main Justice, or the White House."
The request revolves partly around an IRS whistleblower's testimony indicating that the DOJ had compiled a list of women that Hunter Biden "appeared to pay for sex relating to the investigation into Mann Act violations."
Whistleblower Joseph Ziegler said at the time, "There were some flying people across state lines, paying for their travel, paying for their hotels. They were what we call Mann Act violations."
He also said that there were falsified tax deductions on Hunter Biden's tax returns.
"There were deductions for what we believe to be escorts, and then that $10,000 golf club membership, yes, that was not a golf club membership; that was for a sex club payment," he said at the time.
The two Republican lawmakers want to know if the allegation regarding the list is true, and "if anyone from the U.S. Attorney for Delawares office contacted the DOJ about potential victim issues in the investigation, and if the DOJ plans to confer with victims regarding the next steps to be taken."
Only time will tell if the DOJ cooperates with Comer and Taylor-Greene, but one shouldn't be surprised if they do not.
