Prepared Floor Remarks by U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley of Iowa
On Democrats and the Media Finally Acknowledging the Hunter Biden Investigation
Thursday, December 10, 2020
For over a year, Senator Johnson and I investigated the Biden family financial dealings.
We found that they engaged in potential criminal financial deals across the globe, including China, which created counterintelligence concerns.
We showed our work and made our findings public, but the liberal media and Democrats chose to dismiss it. They even falsely claimed our work was Russian disinformation in order to protect the Biden’s.
Those same liberal outlets that disparaged our investigation now report that Hunter Biden’s financial deals in China raised counterintelligence concerns.
Yesterday, the Biden Transition Team confirmed that Hunter Biden is under criminal investigation for his taxes and financial dealings.
It’s outrageous that the Fourth Estate would choose to ignore facts when they are uncovered by Republicans.
I don’t do oversight for the fun of it. It’s serious business. It shouldn’t take subpoenas and confirmation from Hunter Biden himself to get the rest of the press to pay attention.
