Why does this matter? After all, Hunter isn’t an elected official or candidate for office. But Americans have a right to know this particular case proceeds fairly and according to law because it concerns Joe Biden’s willingness to let his family trade on his name, even at the risk of damaging America’s national security interests.

As vice president, Joe allowed Hunter to accompany him on taxpayer-funded trips around the world, even though Hunter had no official business on behalf of the U.S. government. It was on these trips that Hunter signed deals with companies connected to the Chinese Communist Party.

The incoming Biden administration undoubtedly will be tempted to sweep these investigations under the rug. We can’t let that happen. That’s why, in our capacities as members of Congress, we’re calling for a special counsel to be assigned to the Hunter Biden case so investigations will be allowed to continue, impartially and without interference from the new administration.
