Republicans are itching to look deeper into allegations that President Joe Biden’s family is using his position of power to make lucrative business deals with foreign countries and partners.
But, Republicans apparently worry their options are scant given Democrats control both chambers of Congress.
“We need to understand the extent of the Biden family’s use of its connection to the president to enrich itself and any steps being taken to mitigate future self-dealing,” said a Republican spokesperson for the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
“The biggest thing we can do is just ask these questions,” said Florida Rep. Byron Donalds, who sits on the Oversight Committee.
“And in some respects, we have to rely on reporters, like yourself, to be able to ask these questions as well and try to do some digging. My hope is that the White House doesn’t just stonewall us with a ‘Come on, man’ statement or a weak response by the press secretary,” Donalds added.
