While Democrats appear to have finally moved on from the baseless claim that the Hunter Biden scandal is Russian propaganda, they’re still refusing to take it seriously.
In solidarity with President Biden, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee rejected a “partisan” push for documents relating to his son’s international business deals, Breitbart reported.
Dems vote against transparency
Ranking member James Comer (Ky.) introduced the “resolution of inquiry,” which he said would shed light on the national security implications of Biden’s family selling “access to the highest levels of government to enrich themselves.”
“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,” Comer said.
“We must shed light on the Biden family’s international business schemes to determine if there is a national security threat.” he added.
The vote was part of a GOP messaging blitz surrounding the Biden family’s business deals, which Republicans are promising to look into if they win back the majority in the midterms.
Democrats, unsurprisingly, dismissed the effort, with chair Carolyn Maloney (D-Ny.) accusing Republicans of an irrational “obsession” with Hunter Biden.
Dems deny, ignore scandal
Meanwhile, Maloney has accused former President Trump of compromising national security by taking allegedly classified documents to Mar-A-Lago. She and other Democrats have rallied behind the Biden administration’s investigation into the records, saying “no one is above the law.”
Following reports that Trump kept highly classified information at Mar-a-Lago, Adam Schiff & I are calling on Director of National Intelligence Avril Haines for an immediate review and assessment of damage.

Apparently, “no one is above the law” is not meant to be taken literally. Those concerned that Joe Biden’s family sold government access to communist China are just “obsessed,” according to Maloney and her party.
In a rare TV interview with 60 Minutes this past weekend, Biden continued to deny any knowledge of his son’s business deals despite mounting evidence to the contrary.
“There’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter,” he said.
