House investigators are digging deeper into alleged influence peddling involving President Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. They have now set their sights on President Biden’s travel records from his time as vice president to determine if these trips were used to aid his son’s foreign business deals. The lawmakers have submitted a letter to the National Archives and Records Administration, requesting unrestricted access to Mr. Biden’s travel aboard Air Force Two and Marine Two.
According to the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Hunter Biden may have accompanied his father to 15 countries while he was vice president. During this time, Mr. Biden allegedly met with his son’s business associate, a Chinese national, while on official business in Beijing. The committee is concerned that these trips may have provided favorable conditions for the Biden family’s business dealings.
The lawmakers wasted no time in expressing their concern over the potential abuse of power by President Biden. In their letter to U.S. Archivist Colleen Shogan, they stated that “Then Vice-President Biden’s misuse of Air Force Two and Marine Two is indicative of yet another way in which the President has abused his various offices of public trust and wasted taxpayer money to benefit his family’s enterprise.”
House Oversight Chairman James Comer and Rep. Byron Donalds, both Republicans, signed the letter. They are determined to uncover any wrongdoing and ensure accountability for the alleged abuse of taxpayer-funded resources.
Mr. Comer is not only seeking travel records, but also more than 5,000 White House emails that were sent under aliases for then-Vice President Joseph R. Biden. It appears that Mr. Biden used several pseudonyms, including Robert L. Peters, Robin Ware, and JRB Ware, to disguise his involvement in his son’s business deals.
This investigation comes after previous revelations about Hunter Biden’s connections and financial activities. The National Archives is awaiting approval from President Biden and former President Barack Obama before handing over the requested information to Mr. Comer.
The American people deserve transparency and accountability from their leaders, and it is the duty of the Oversight committee to ensure that these demands are met. While these allegations may cast a shadow on the President’s record, it is essential to uncover the truth and address any potential wrongdoing.
