Republicans request ATF probe into Hunter Biden’s gun purchase

Hunter Biden became embroiled in another scandal last month following reports that he lied on a background check form prior to purchasing a firearm.

Now, Republicans are demanding an investigation into President Joe Biden’s son in hopes that he will be treated the same way as anyone else who allegedly committed the same infraction.

GOP lawmakers make request

As Politico reported, the younger Hunter declared that he did not abuse drugs upon filling out the background check form despite a discharge from the U.S. Navy reportedly stemming from his substance abuse problem.

Hunter Biden’s struggle with drug addiction has since been widely publicized and acknowledged by the Biden family, including in a recently published memoir.

In a letter to the president’s nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives this week, U.S. Rep. Bob Good (R-VA) asked for a public commitment that, if confirmed, David Chipman would launch a probe into the matter.

A number of other GOP lawmakers signed the letter, which acknowledged such crimes are rarely prosecuted but nonetheless argued that an ATF investigation would help establish public trust that “well-connected” individuals are still held accountable under the law.

The “zeal” Chipman has shown for “expanding and enforcing” gun restrictions should extend to the Hunter Biden ordeal, the letter continued.

“Will not be curbed”

“Allegations of this crime are no less serious when leveled at Hunter Biden,” the Republican legislator wrote.

Good went on to declare that Americans have a right “to know that this same commitment will not be curbed depending on whether the offender is well-connected.”

The narrative surrounding Hunter Biden’s gun purchase also included a reported incident in which his then-girlfriend, Hallie Biden, tossed the handgun in a trash can. The U.S. Secret Service later became involved in the investigation for reasons that were not altogether clear from media reports.

Late last year, Hunter Biden confirmed that he was the subject of a federal investigation into his “tax affairs.”

His father, then the president-elect, pledged that the case would be handled impartially, but many critics expressed skepticism. With Joe Biden and much of the mainstream media attempting to dismiss prior controversies surrounding Hunter Biden, it seems unlikely that the current administration will prioritize the latest request for an investigation.

  1. Of course joe got involved. The demoRats say what you want to hear then go behind your back and do the opposite. DemoRats LIE with every breath. You CANNOT trust demoRats in congress and especially the LYING child molesting POS in the white house. Incase you wonder who I’m talking about, it’s PINO(president in name only) Joe Biden and his whole kamala. They need to be removed from the white house and congress.

  3. Yes Hunter is being investigated but I rather hoped it would be his old man who was being investigated . No matter what is found nothing will happen , daddy Joe will order it swept under rug . Seems there are laws for the rest of us but they do not apply to Democrats or their little boys no matter how slimy and corrupt they are .

    1. YES YOU ARE CORRECT JOE BIDEN IS THE MOST CORRUPT PERSON ON THE FACE OF THIS EARTH AND HE NEEDS TO BE LOCKED IN PRISON FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE SHOULD NOT BE TREATED ANY DIFFERENT THAN ANYONE ELSE WHO IS GUILTY SO PUT HIM BEHIND BARS NOW IN AN ORANGE JUMPSUIT AND THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF HIM.

  4. GOP requests investigation long after he and Pa have a fix or excuse for the Query.
    I’m starting to wonder if the request/demand was held back by RINOs on purpose.

  5. So if any one could answer this for me. If we the people vote them in, then why can’t we impeach them? I’m NOT EVEN HAPPY WITH THE JOB THEY ARE AND HAVE DONE. THEY ALL NEED TO BE FIRED. I THINK WE THE PEOPLE SHOULD FILE (SUE) THEM ALL. I BET IF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE FILE THEY WOULD FINALLY HAVE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE FIRE THEM AND SEND THEM TO JAIL WHERE MOST SHOULD BE!!!!!!!

  6. Yes Hunter Biden should go to jail, him and his father. We all know this. But, no one has the balls to make it stick. Let an average citizen break probation and buy a gun….straight to jail!!! I’d love to see an average citizen NOT GET JAIL TIME….BC if it’s not going to stick for Hunter it shouldn’t stick for any other citizen…take that to the Supreme court!

  7. Este pais da pena, Hillary mintió, engaño, hizo cuanto le dio la gana, puso, Estados Unidos en riesgo y no le ha dado ni catarro, Joe Biden cjantajeo al presidente Ucraniano, confesado por el mismo, y es presidente, hillary clinton, con el apoyo y consentimiento de Barack Obama y del JOe Biden, inventó toda una mentira de dimensiones increíbles y jamás vistas en Estados UNidos, y nadie le pasa nada, Kerry, mientras TRUMP era Presidente hablaba y se comprometía con los Iraníes, como si fueran los hermanos, y sigue siendo de la cúpula gobernante, y el retoño de Biden, ese magnífico muchacho que se tomado hasta el agua de los floreros, con el descubrimiento de una laptop, que si hubiera sido mía, ya estaría en el corredor de la muerte esperando me inyectaran y no precisamente con la vacuna, y no pasa nada, y va a dar charlas a los estudiantes en las universidades, como un HEROE, alguié puede decirme en que país yo estoy ?
