The decade's most triggering comedy
First son Hunter Biden’s legal team on Monday demanded Congress investigate Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, accusing the Georgia Republican of making several “unethical” statements about the president’s son.
Biden’s lawyer, Abbe Lowell, sent a letter obtained by POLITICO to the Office of Congressional Ethics, requesting lawmakers take action against Greene for her statements about Biden, alleging violations of the House Ethics Code.
“Representative Greene’s unethical conduct arises from her continuous verbal attacks, defamatory statements, publication of personal photos and data, and promotion of conspiracy theories about and against Robert Hunter Biden,” Lowell said. “None of these could possibly be deemed to be part of any legitimate legislative activity, as is clear from both the content of her statements and actions, and the forums she uses to spew her often unhinged rhetoric.”
Biden lived the life of a wealthy jet-setter while his father was vice president, accompanying him on overseas trips from 2008-2016 and striking lucrative deals with energy companies and investors in China and Ukraine. The laptop, which legacy media initially tried to discredit, has provided information about alleged Biden family corruption.
In addition to illuminating Hunter Biden’s alleged corrupt international dealings, the laptop also opened a window into accusations of drug abuse, the patronizing of prostitutes, and dysfunctional family squabbles.
Lowell referenced several social media posts and public statements from the Georgia lawmaker in her letter, saying Greene’s “unhinged rhetoric” against Biden “sound and tread like school-yard insults rather than the work of a Member of Congress, and they fail to uphold the integrity and dignity expected of members of the House of Representatives.”
Greene has vocalized criticism over President Joe Biden and his family since making her debut in Washington, D.C. In recent months, Greene has accused Hunter of “wheeling & dealing with CCP ties and prostitutes with classified documents laying around.”
“The unmoored verbal abuses and ad hominem attacks against Mr. Biden are just a microcosm of Representative Greene’s numerous ethical violations and repeated lapses in ethical judgment, all of which warrant a review of her conduct,” Lowell said.
Greene responded to the letter from Biden’s attorney on Twitter.
“Hunter is upset over my statements,” Greene said. “Well Hunter, the entire country is pissed off about your obvious influence peddling with your Daddy’s political power.”
“Come chat with us Republicans on the Oversight Committee,” she added. “We have a lot of questions.”

Biden is under investigation by U.S. Attorney for the District of Delaware David Weiss for possible tax and gun crimes. Last week, an IRS whistleblower said that powerful players inside the Department of Justice, reportedly including Attorney General Merrick Garland himself, were trying to kill the investigation.
The House Committee on Oversight is examining Biden-linked bank records looking at other Biden family members who appear to have benefited from international deals. Last month, Rep. James Comer (R-KY) said he discovered that a Biden associate received a $3 million wire transfer from a Chinese energy company. Four members of the Biden family — including Hunter, the president’s brother, James, and Hallie Biden, the widow of Hunter’s deceased brother Beau and his former paramour- pocketed $1.3 million from the transfer.
“There’s not going to be anybody left for a Christmas picture if the DOJ did their job and went and indicted anyone who has any type of fingerprints involved in this influence peddling scheme,” Comer said. “I mean, it’s the entire family.”
