Rep. Buck sends letter to Barr calling for special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden

Monday morning Rep. Ken Buck tweeted “.@TheJusticeDept must appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s conduct and contents of his laptop.”

He added “this needs to be investigated free from political interference. No matter who is in the White House.”

In his letter Buck writes to Barr “this investigation is critical to defending the integrity of our republic and ensuring a potential Biden Administration will not be the subject of undue foreign interference.”

He continued “Americans have the right to know whether Mr. Biden’s reported ties to foreign governments will make him the subject of blackmail attempts or other nefarious efforts to undermine U.S. national security or otherwise improperly influence American foreign policy.”

“Similar to when the DOJ appointed Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III, it is critical that this investigation continue free from political interference, no matter who is in the White House,” Buck added “We must guarantee the integrity of our government and the security of our republic.”

He concluded “as such, I urge the DOJ to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s actions and the potentially incriminating contents of his laptop to ensure this important investigation will be completed.”

Buck added in a subsequent tweet:

A Special Counsel looking into Hunter Biden’s laptop would:

  • Increase transparency and accountability
  • Prevent foreign interference and potential blackmail with Joe Biden
  • Protect national security Hard to argue with those goals.
