A Judicial Watch petition requesting a special counsel to investigate Biden family corruption has reached more than 310,000 signers.
“There is substantial evidence, from documents and witness statements, that the Biden family, including President Joe Biden, may have been involved in criminal activity involving, among other issues, foreign entities tied to Ukraine and China,” the petition read.
“A special counsel should immediately be appointed because the Biden Justice Department is conflicted in investigating any matter that could implicate President Biden or his immediate family,” it added.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said, “Hunter has acknowledged that he is the target of an FBI criminal investigation, and he’s on to his next corrupt enterprise — secretly selling his ‘ink blow’ paintings, in a scheme concocted by the Biden White House.”
He added, “A special counsel needs to be appointed immediately because the Biden Justice Department is conflicted in investigating any matter that could implicate President Biden or his immediate family.”
The controversy reached a new level when Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, recently auctioned personal artwork for a reported $500,000. A White House effort has worked to keep the names of the buyers anonymous.
Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer said, “The only way to address these issues is with greater transparency–not less.”
Whether the petition will achieve its goal is unknown. However, the high-profile effort will certainly help push government leaders to ask more questions about Hunter Biden’s family business connections.
