Biggs Plans Fresh Criminal Referral For Hunter

( – Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs is pushing for the House to send a criminal referral for President Biden’s son Hunter to the Justice Department for lying to Congress during his testimony before the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees.

In a July 2 interview with “Just the News, No Noise” hosts John Solomon and Amanda Head, Biggs suggested that the Oversight and Judiciary committees were pushing “behind the scenes” to refer the younger Biden to the Justice Department for perjury charges.

During his testimony in February, Hunter Biden falsely claimed that he never had any involvement in Burnham Asset Management, a firm that in 2016 was involved in a securities fraud case.

Newly revealed documents showed that Hunter Biden was working with Burnham at the time of the investigation.

Biggs told Solomon and Head that his team was hoping to get together with members of the Oversight and Judiciary Committees to prepare another criminal referral.

He suggested that Hunter would probably argue that he was not under oath when he denied his involvement with Burnham, but added that witnesses cannot lie to Congress and Hunter Biden “did it overtly.”

Biggs also said that there had been little progress on the resolution that was introduced last month by Missouri Rep. Eric Burlison that would declare the January 6 select committee illegitimate and rescind the subpoenas the committee issued to Steve Bannon, Peter Navarro, Mark Meadows, and Dan Scavino.

Biggs told the hosts that there had been resistance to the resolution from within the Republican Party.

He explained that some Republican lawmakers were trying to get the January 6 subpoenas rescinded but they were “not sure how much longer it’s going to be.”

The resolution would also withdraw the congressional recommendation to the Justice Department to bring charges of contempt of Congress against those who defied the January 6 subpoenas, including Bannon and Navarro who are both currently serving four-month prison sentences.
