The number of Republican senators who want Attorney General Bill Barr to appoint a special counsel to open up an investigation into the allegations surrounding business dealings of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son Hunter continues to grow.
As we draw closer and closer to the final showdown between President Trump and Joe Biden at the polls, the GOP has continued to increase their focus on Hunter Biden. The president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, says he’s obtained private emails from Hunter, along with photos and texts, all pulled from a water damaged laptop handed over by a Delaware repair man.
Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn, a member of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s leadership team, told the Washington Examiner, “Well, I think I’m not a big fan of special counsels, but I’m worried if Trump loses the election, then that will all be just swept under the rug.”
Sen. Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said the panel that has been investigating the matter echoed Cornyn’s comments.
“I’m not a fan of special counsels. In this case. It might be the only solution to make sure that we finally get to the bottom of this,” Johnson told the Washington Examiner. “Again, it all depends on the election result, but that might be appropriate in this situation.”
“I certainly think it should be investigated, and I think a special counsel may well be warranted,” Rep. Josh Hawley told the media. “My bottom line is I think the investigation needs to continue uninterrupted. So if it takes a special counsel to do that, then I’d be for it.”
However, not all members of the GOP think such a measure is warranted.
“I think we’ve got enough proof of everything that’s bad that they’ve done, and I think what we need is the FBI and the Department of Justice to do their job,” Sen. Chuck Grassley said. “I’ve studied this thing long enough. You don’t need a special counsel. Just go with the normal process.”
The bottom line is some sort of investigation is necessary to find out if Joe Biden abused his political power and the office of vice president in order to make himself and his family wealthy, trading political favors for fat cash. If this is the case, and the evidence that it is continues to mount, then there’s no way he should be allowed to be president, win or lose.
