Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) has joined the voices of several Republicans in Congress who are calling on the Justice Department, now headed by acting United States Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen, to investigate the son of former Vice President Joe Biden in the face of allegations of fraudulent business dealings with foreign companies.
As Townhall pointed out, both Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), have advocated that the Justice Department appoint a special counsel to ensure objectivity and fairness, pointing out that if Biden were to become president, he would be able to fire the investigators who are investigating his son.
“Joe Biden’s son is being investigated for trading in his name. There could not be a greater conflict of interest and this investigation requires special counsel,” Cotton wrote via his Twitter account.
It should be noted that former U.S. Attorney General William Barr, downplayed the senators’ request for a special counsel to handle the case, assuring that the ongoing investigation by Delaware prosecutors into Hunter Biden’s tax affairs does not require the appointment of a special counsel.
Graham wrote a message to then-Attorney General William Barr, who left office on Dec. 23, “My concern is the scope of the Delaware investigation is limited to tax fraud and will not be a thorough review of Hunter Biden’s extensive business dealings with foreign nations.”
Meanwhile, Loeffler, who is listed as one of the Republican Party candidates in the Georgia Senate runoff election, wrote, “The Department of Justice MUST do the right thing. Appoint a special counsel on Hunter Biden NOW!”
The Department of Justice MUST do the right thing.
Appoint a special counsel on Hunter Biden NOW!

In a Dec. 18 tweet, Loeffler wrote, “Hunter Biden and the Biden family have profited off Joe Biden’s political career for 50 YEARS. THEY ARE CORRUPT,” Loefler added. “We need a full and transparent investigation by a special prosecutor now.”

Last week, President Donald Trump consulted with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, White House Counsel Pat Cipollone, and other officials about the possibility of assigning a special counsel to investigate Biden’s suspicious financial activity.
