The House Oversight and Accountability Committee, led by Chairman James Comer (R-Ky.), intends to issue approximately six to ten criminal referrals related to Hunter Biden, the eldest son of the current US President. This development comes despite Hunter Biden’s recent plea deal with federal prosecutors regarding two lesser tax crimes and a firearms case.

Earlier in the week, Chairman Comer suggested that the referrals would encompass accusations that Hunter Biden breached the Mann Act, a law that forbids transporting women across state borders for illegal sexual activities. The evidence for such a violation, according to Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), was sufficiently presented during a House Oversight Committee hearing.

Representative Greene alleged that Hunter Biden had paid women to cross state lines for sexual activities, an act she classified as prostitution. To support her claims, she revealed partially redacted images sourced from explicit tapes allegedly filmed by Hunter Biden and later discovered on his notorious “laptop from hell.”

Further testimonies at the same hearing were provided by IRS whistleblowers, Supervisory IRS Special Agent Gary Shapley, and IRS Criminal Investigator Joseph Ziegler. They accused the Biden family of receiving millions from foreign entities, with Ziegler specifically alleging that Hunter Biden and his business associates had acquired $17 million from abroad, including $7.3 million from Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. The whistleblowers also claimed that the Justice Department had obstructed their investigation into Hunter Biden to prevent potential prosecution.

"She showed the plane tickets, she showed the pictures, she showed the evidence. You know, there’s no question he violated it. That’s another thing that he could have been charged with," Comer told an American broadcaster.

Additional potential referrals could relate to Hunter Biden’s alleged infringements of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), accused of lobbying for foreign interests without registering under the act.

In related news, Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) unveiled an unclassified FBI memo detailing a purported bribery scheme involving both Joe and Hunter Biden. The memo claimed that Burisma hired Hunter Biden to leverage his father’s influence to dismiss an investigation into the company’s potentially illicit activities. A confidential source in the memo indicated that each Biden had allegedly received $5 million for their roles in the affair.

Earlier, Supervisory IRS Special Agent Shapley shared that Hunter Biden allegedly used Joe Biden’s name in an attempt to pressure a Chinese associate for a large financial sum. Shapley referenced a supposed WhatsApp message from Hunter that threatened repercussions if a financial commitment was not fulfilled. Shortly after this message was sent, Hunter Biden’s firm Hudson West III reportedly received $5.1 million from Chinese associates.

"[Hunter Biden] was money laundering. He was racketeering. He committed wire fraud. He violated the Mann Act. The list goes on and on and on," Comer said, pledging to get to the bottom of Biden's alleged corruption.
