Though the mainstream media talking heads might say that Americans want to just forget about the Biden family’s problems, possible corruption, and obvious issues, polling shows that the exact opposite is the case. In fact, many Americans are, according to a recently released YouGov/CBS poll, demanding that Congress give either “high priority” or “medium priority” to investigating both Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.
Specifically, question 28 of the poll asked “This year, do you think Congress should or should not prioritize these…”. Among those who responded, 31 percent said that “investigating Joe Biden” needs to be given “high priority” and 24 percent said that it needs to be given “medium priority.” Similarly, “investigating Hunter Biden” got 30 percent demanding it be given “high priority” and 29 percent saying it deserves “medium priority.”
The poll is good news for Republicans, as they have already embarked on an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden. Rep. James Comer of Tennessee, then the top Republican on the Oversight Committee, announced that probe back in November of 2022, saying:
“I want to be clear, this is an investigation of Joe Biden. The Biden family’s business dealings implicate a wide range of criminality from human trafficking to potential violations of the constitution.
“In the 218th Congress, this committee will evaluate the status of Joe Biden’s relationship with his family’s foreign partners and whether he is a president who is compromised or swayed by foreign dollars or influence.“
Adding to that, Comer also said:
“We are also sending letters to the Biden administration and Biden family associates renewing our request for voluntary production of documents relevant to this investigation.
“This is an investigation of Joe Biden, the president of the United States, and why he lied to the American people about his knowledge and participation in his family’s international business dealing schemes. National security interests require to conduct an investigation and we will pursue all avenues – avenues that have long been ignored.”
Then, explaining what crimes Biden is being investigation for, Rep. Comer said “These include conspiracy or defrauding the United States, wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, violations of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act, tax evasion, money laundering, and conspiracy to commit money laundering.”
He also sounded off on Biden and Hunter allegedly assisting the Chinese in buying up American energy assets, saying “We find evidence that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden were involved in a scheme to try to get China to buy liquified natural gas. People are in outrage over China buying farmland in the Dakotas. What about China starting to buy into our American energy industry?”
At the time of Rep. Comer’s announcement, Breitbart reported that “Fifty-eight percent of voters believe that Joe Biden has played a role in his family’s business dealings. Sixty percent say Hunter Biden has sold “influence and access” to the president.”
So, now the American people are behind an investigation and the GOP has the power to conduct one. We’ll see if they capitalize on that, or miss the mark as usual.
