The Republican Oversight Committee’s “resolution of inquiry” to investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings was voted down Tuesday after two hours of debate. While all 19 Republicans voted for the resolution, 23 Democrats voted against it.
The Committee’s resolution would have required the Biden administration to hand over documents regarding the Biden family’s business deals, including those involving Hunter Biden.
Rep. James Comer (R-KY) expressed his frustration toward Democrats’ ongoing protection of the Biden family when he stated, “If the Democrats vote against this resolution, then they are continuing in their coordinated effort to shield a potentially compromised President from necessary congressional oversight. We must shed light on the Biden family’s international business schemes to determine if there is a national security threat.”

Comer initially sent a letter to the U.S. Treasury on May 26th requesting information about the finances of Hunter Biden and his business associates. However, the Treasury responded that no information would be provided unless Democrats joined the request.
Despite having their resolution voted down, House Republicans plan to continue to push for an investigation of Hunter Biden’s business transactions. A GOP Oversight Committee aide told the Washington Post, “The House Oversight Committee has expansive oversight authority under House rules. Next Congress, Oversight Committee Republicans will continue their investigation into the Biden family’s suspicious business dealings using the power of the gavel to get answers for the American people.”
