Newt Gingrich Calls on Congress to Investigate Hunter Biden & 'Those Protecting Him'
'Activities in Ukraine, Russia and China have direct national security implications'
Republican former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is calling on lawmakers in Congress to launch an investigation into Hunter Biden's shady foreign dealings.
Speaking in an op-ed for Fox News, Gingrich said the probe must also extend to those who are "protecting" Democrat Joe Biden's son.
However, Gingrich is confident that congressional leaders will hear his calls and take action.
"Hunter Biden is going to end up being investigated – and the impact on President Joe Biden, his administration, and his legacy is going to be enormous," Gingrich insists.
Gingrich believes that Hunter Biden will face justice, "despite every effort of the Biden administration, the Justice Department, the congressional Democrats, and the propaganda media."
More stories about Hunter Biden’s meetings with foreign agents in Serbia, China, and elsewhere are continuing to emerge, meaning serious scrutiny will soon become unavoidable.
"The evidence is overwhelming that Hunter Biden’s activities in Ukraine, Russia, and China have direct national security implications," Gingrich asserts.
"We simply do not know how much the Biden administration’s weakness toward Communist China is influenced by the Chinese corruption of the Biden family and its allies.
"We do not know how much Vladimir Putin has been emboldened by his knowledge of the corruption of Hunter Biden – and through him the governing family of the United States.
"There has been a complete absence of honesty and inquiry from the FBI and the Justice Department.
"It is amazing that the Hunter Biden laptop has not already led to an indictment of President Biden’s son for a series of amazing influence-peddling schemes."
The U.S. attorney for Delaware, where the laptop was found and where the Bidens live, has shown no interest in pursuing a case that involves public corruption at the highest levels.
The FBI has had the laptop now for some time.
Yet nothing has been done to pursue the clear corruption outlined in the various emails it contains.
Hunter Biden’s irresponsible marketing of "a unique relationship" with his vice president father during the Obama years, (then with a presidential candidate, and now with the president) has enormous national security implications.
"It is no accident that Hunter was actively seeking business in Communist China, Putin’s Russia, and Ukraine," Gingrich states.
"These were countries keenly interested in developing influence in Washington and it seems they felt they were getting real access and impact through Hunter and his family."
Hunter's ex-business partner, former U.S. Navy Lt. Tony Bobulinski, has had virtually all his allegations of Biden corruption validated by the emails discovered in the Hunter Biden laptop.
His allegations clearly implicate Joe Biden and his son.
They suggest a Biden family mired in the most venal kinds of corruption.
"It resembles the scene from 'Jerry Maguire' in which Tom Cruise has to repeatedly yell 'show me the money' to convince his football-playing client to keep him as his agent," Gingrich notes.
"Imagine the contempt with which Chinese, Russian and Ukrainian bribers must have looked at the cocaine-using, prostitute-hiring son of a major national politician as they paid him again and again for influence.
"Ask yourself: Is it at all plausible that all this foreign money and business was coming to Hunter Biden – a clearly unqualified, deeply troubled, and totally unprepared broker – and Joe Biden did not ask about it, look into it or ask staff to monitor what Hunter was doing?
"How could the FBI have avoided taking apart the Hunter Biden laptop and tracking down the details found in the emails?
"How could the authorities have avoided tracking the vice president’s son as he dealt with nations actively dangerous to America?
"What officials made the decisions to avoid looking and avoid knowing?"
Not since Hillary Clinton deleted more than 33,000 emails while her staff used a hammer to literally destroy the hard drives on her computer has there been such a willful avoidance of knowledge by law enforcement officials.
"When you compare the Justice Department’s benign neglect of Clinton and Hunter Biden with its illegal overreach in pursuing what we now know was a totally phony Russian dossier designed to smear President Donald Trump, it is clear something is profoundly sick in our federal criminal justice system," Gingrich adds.
He says the mounting evidence "virtually guarantees that Hunter Biden will face both congressional and criminal justice scrutiny."
"The investigation must and will occur," Gingrich concludes.
"The only questions are how soon and by whom."
