BREAKING: Hunter, James Biden Referred For Criminal Prosecution By Congress

On Wednesday, multiple GOP-led House committees issued a criminal referral to the Department of Justice against the president's son, Hunter Biden, and his brother, James Biden, after the two allegedly lied to lawmakers during congressional testimony in the impeachment inquiry.

In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and special counsel David Weiss, the Oversight, Judiciary, and Ways and Means committees argued that the two Biden family members knowingly made false statements while testifying to Congress. "These false statements implicate Joe Biden’s knowledge of and role in his family’s influence peddling schemes and appear to be a calculated effort to shield Joe Biden from the impeachment inquiry," the House Oversight Committee wrote.

The allegations stem from a transcribed interview with James Biden on February 21 and a February 28 deposition of the president's son in which both men, under oath, testified that President Biden didn't beneift from their work with various businesses overseas.

“Specifically, Hunter Biden falsely distanced himself from a corporate entity — Rosemont Seneca Bohai, LLC — and its bank account (Rosemont Seneca Bohai Bank Account) that was the recipient of millions of dollars from foreign individuals and foreign entities who met with then-Vice President Biden before and after transmitting money to the Rosemont Seneca Bohai Bank Account that then transferred funds to Hunter Biden,” the committees explained.

“Hunter Biden made additional false statements as to whether he held positions at Rosemont Seneca Bohai, LLC. After deposing Hunter Biden, the Committees obtained documents showing Hunter Biden represented that he was the corporate secretary," the letter reads. "Additionally, Hunter Biden during his testimony relayed an entirely fictitious account about threatening text messages he sent to his Chinese business partner while invoking his father’s presence with him as he wrote the messages. Hunter Biden told the Oversight Committee and the Judiciary Committee he had transmitted this threat to an unrelated individual with the same surname."

"However, documents released by the Committee on Ways and Means demonstrate conclusively that Hunter Biden made this threat to the intended individual, and bank records prove Hunter Biden’s Chinese business partners wired millions of dollars to him after his threat," the Republican chairmen continued. "A portion of the proceeds has been traced to Joe Biden’s bank account.”
