Petition Demanding Investigation into 'Biden Family Corruption' Goes Viral
Judicial Watch announced that the petition reached over 300,000 signatures
A viral petition demanding an investigation into allegations that Joe Biden and family members have actively profited from public services has reached 300,000 signatures.
Washington political watchdog group Judicial Watch announced that the petition had reached 309,229 signatures since it was posted on Change.org.
The news comes amid questions about Biden's allegedly profiting in China and Ukraine are beginning to surface again.
Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton, said:
"There is plenty of 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."

“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."
"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 news comes as Hunter Biden's paintings are set to fetch as much as $500,000 in an auction arranged by the White House to keep the sales a secret.
Former President Barack Obama's ethics chief recently slammed Hunter's lucrative art scheme.
Former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub blasted the "corrupt" plans.
“The notion of a president’s son capitalizing on that relationship by selling art at obviously inflated prices and keeping the public in the dark about who’s funneling money to him has a shameful and grifty feel to it,” he said.
Fitton said he hopes the petition will push GOP congressional leaders, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call for a special counsel.
“Please help us spread the word as a special counsel should be appointed immediately to investigate the Biden family's dealings in China, Ukraine, etc.!” Fitton said in a petition update.
The petition promises to draw attention from the media, which many left-wing outlets have actively ignored.
