Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (Republican, Georgia) told Newsmax she felt “uncomfortable” showing sexually explicit photos of Hunter Biden at a House hearing on Wednesday. (Watch the video below.)
“This is actually the evidence that I believe the American people deserve to see, because when the American people can see this evidence — as uncomfortable as it was for me to show it on the Oversight Committee today — I believe that’s how they can hold this government accountable,” Greene said.
The far-right lawmaker seized the spotlight earlier in the day by displaying photos featuring the president’s son and an alleged sex worker while questioning an IRS whistleblower who claimed the Department of Justice derailed an investigation into Hunter Biden’s tax fraud.
Greene accused the president’s son of violating Mann Act sex-trafficking laws and involvement in pornography.
“This is a weaponised Department of Justice,” she said on Newsmax. “They are protecting Hunter Biden... they’re protecting Joe Biden especially.”
The feds are “going after Trump now to keep that in the news cycle while they try to cover up Biden’s crimes,” she added on Rob Schmitt Tonight.
The Republican-led House Oversight Committee has attempted to tie the president to questionable business dealings by the younger Biden, but has not produced proof.
In a deal that would not involve jail time, Hunter Biden has reportedly agreed to plead guilty to misdemeanour charges for failing to pay some of his income tax in 2017 and 2018.
The IRS whistleblowers said they had uncovered more serious allegations that were stifled by the Department of Justice.
