Will we see justice?

House Committee Chairs James Comer (R-KY), Jim Jordan (R-OH), and Jason Smith (R-MO) have sent criminal referrals to the DOJ for James and Hunter Biden for lying to Congress.

The committee chairs sent a letter with the referrals to Attorney General Merrick Garland and Special Counsel David Weiss on Wednesday, saying the alleged false statements “implicate Joe Biden’s knowledge and role in his family’s influence peddling schemes and appear to be a calculated effort to shield Joe Biden from the impeachment inquiry.”

60 pages worth of evidence were attached to the referral.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, Comer said Republicans’ investigation “has revealed President Biden knew about, participated in, and benefitted from his family cashing in on the Biden name around the world.”

“Despite this record of evidence, President Biden continues to lie to the American people about his involvement in these influence-peddling schemes. It appears making false statements runs in the Biden family,” he said, adding that lawmakers have “caught President Biden’s son and brother making blatant lies to Congress in what appears to be a concerted effort to hide Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s schemes.”

“As part of our efforts to hold the Bidens accountable for profiting off public office, we are today referring Hunter and James Biden to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution for making false statements to Congress,” Comer said.

“This is not the end of our efforts to hold the Bidens accountable; it’s only the beginning.”

Jordan blasted the Biden family’s “international influence peddling schemes.”

“Lying to Congress is a serious crime with serious consequences. Both Hunter and James Biden did just that. They lied to cover up President Biden’s involvement in their family’s international influence peddling schemes that have generated millions of dollars.”

Jordan added the criminal referrals are “a reflection of criminal wrongdoing by the Biden family, and the Department of Justice must take steps to hold the Bidens accountable.”

“President Biden claims no one is above the law. We will soon see his Department of Justice put that principle to the test,” Chairman Smith said.

Again, we ask: will we see justice?
