Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs said on Sunday that it seems like the Hunter Biden laptop scandal is a cover up.
Biggs shared the accusation during an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

“[Y]ou need to remember, of course, and I think everybody does, that 51 former intelligence community folks said, ‘No, there’s nothing here. This is Russian disinformation.’ And that was to suppress this for the election in 2020,” Biggs said during the interview.
“But the reality is, Jason, this goes back to when Joe Biden was the vice president, it goes back to a billion-dollar contract to his brother Jim, it goes back to other contracts given to Hunter Biden in Iraq, it goes… all the way to China and the Chinese energy company over there that gave them millions of dollars,” he continued.
“And you see, all of those seem to be perfectly tied with access to Joe Biden. So, if they’re not going to give us information, it does continue to look like the cover-up that we suspect it to be,” he added.
Time to investigate
Earlier this month, Biggs also “made a motion to subpoena Hunter Biden as a witness for the House Oversight and Reform Committee’s hearing on electrifying.”

Biggs also called for accountability among intelligence experts who downplayed the impact of Hunter’s laptop.
“It’s time to hold those accountable who repeatedly said Hunter Biden’s laptop was Russian disinformation,” he tweeted in March.
“They didn’t have any intel to make such an assertion,” he added.

The new interview continues to push for a closer look at Hunter’s business dealings and how they are connected with the president.
