Rep. Elise Stefanik said a GOP-led Congress would investigate the Biden family.
Stefanik accused the Bidens of “profiting” off Joe Biden’s position of power.
Hunter Biden has been investigated, but neither he nor his dad have been charged with any crimes.
Rep. Elise Stefanik, the House Republican conference chair, said this weekend that the GOP will investigate the Biden family if they clinch a majority in Congress during the midterms.
The New York Republican was speaking during a Sunday appearance on Fox News program “Life, Liberty & Levin,” where she said a Republican-led House would hold the Biden administration “accountable.”
Stefanik accused President Joe Biden and his son Hunter of having “illegal ties to crime” and “relationships with other foreign adversaries, and entities that he should not be involved with,” but didn’t provide substantiation.
“And Joe Biden profited from that,” Stefanik claimed. “So, we intend to investigate.”
“We’ve already made those document requests and we’re not going to hesitate when it comes to utilizing our subpoena power,” she added. “Because again, the American people deserve accountability and deserve an investigation to what I believe is the Biden crime family.”
Stefanik also claimed that the “entire Joe Biden family” had been “profiting” off Biden’s position of power, particularly when he was vice president during the Obama administration.
“That is unacceptable in America. And imagine if the Republicans ever did that,” Stefanik said. “Democrats would be investigating absolutely every aspect of that.”
Stefanik is a top House Republican who sits on the House intelligence committee. The committee, which oversees the 18 US intelligence agencies and departments, is currently led by Rep. Adam Schiff since Democrats have control of the House.
Stefanik appeared to be echoing a pledge this month by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Reps. Jim Jordan and James Comer to investigate the Bidens.
“A Republican majority will be committed to uncovering the facts the Democrats, Big Tech, and the legacy media have suppressed,” the three wrote in the New York Post.
In June, Comer also said investigating Hunter Biden would be a priority for the GOP, calling him a “national security risk.”
