Hunter Biden is no stranger to scandal.
But until now Biden could count on his father’s connections to bail him out.
And now Hunter Biden is about to beg the Supreme Court to get him out of a major jam.
Hunter Biden and congressional Republicans are on a Supreme Court collision course.
The House Oversight Committee stepped up its investigation into Joe Biden’s involvement in the Biden family’s alleged influence peddling operation.
Oversight Committee Chairman Kentucky Congressman James Comer wrote a letter to Hunter Biden, Joe’s brother James Biden, and business associate Eric Schwerin demanding they produce financial records, business documents, rent payments, accounting books, contracts, bills, fees, and other arrangements to the committee regarding deals involving individuals linked to the Chinese Communist Party.
“Hunter Biden, James Biden, and Eric Schwerin are key witnesses in our investigation of Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s international and domestic business schemes. Evidence obtained in our investigation reveals the Biden family business model is built on Joe Biden’s political career and connections. Biden family members attempted to sell access around the world, including individuals who were connected to the Chinese Communist Party, to enrich themselves to the detriment of American interests. If President Biden is compromised by deals with foreign adversaries and they are impacting his decision making, this is a threat to national security,” Comer’s letter read.
CEFC — an energy company that many suspect operates as a front for the Chinese Communist Party — paid Hunter Biden $6 million.
Hunter Biden also flew aboard Air Force 2 with then-Vice President Joe Biden in 2013 when Biden traveled to Asia.
On that trip Hunter Biden ventured to China to try and strike a deal on a $1.5 billion investment fund.
The depth of the Biden family’s ties to America’s chief political adversary are an increasing concern to Republicans in Congress.
Hunter Biden’s business partner of the CEFC deal, Tony Bobulinski, told Tucker Carlson that the millions CEFC paid Hunter Biden meant Communist China compromised Joe Biden.
Comer explained Republicans planned to investigate Joe Biden’s role in Hunter Biden’s business deals to probe if Joe Biden acted in the nation’s interest as president.
“The American people deserve transparency and accountability about the Biden family’s influence peddling. The Oversight Committee is committed to exposing the waste, fraud, and abuse that has taken place at the highest levels of our government. Hunter Biden, James Biden, and Eric Schwerin’s documents, records, and communications are critical to this investigation,” Comer’s letter continued.
But Hunter Biden’s lawyer rejected Chairman Comer’s demands falsely claiming the committee had no legitimate legislative purpose in making these demands.

If Hunter Biden continues to stonewall Republicans will issue a subpoena.
And if Hunter Biden tries to defy the subpoena it may set up a legal challenge that will go all the way to the Supreme Court.
