Comer, Marjorie Taylor Greene Demand Information On Hunter Biden Hookers, Claiming They May Be Sex Trafficking Victims; House Republicans Press DOJ for Info On Hunter Biden’s Alleged Prostitutes, Claim They May Be Trafficking Victims

Comer, Marjorie Taylor Greene demand information on Hunter Biden hookers, claiming they may be sex trafficking victims:
House Republicans on Friday ratcheted up pressure on the Justice Department to share information on an alleged list of first son Hunter Biden’s prostitutes — saying they could be victims in need of federal support.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer and firebrand panelist Marjorie Taylor Greene wrote to the Justice Department that information should be handed over by Sept. 22 — ahead of a possible impeachment inquiry into President Biden for his alleged role in Hunter’s foreign business dealings.
“The Committee on Oversight and Accountability continues to investigate whether the Department of Justice … is upholding the rights of victims who were sexually exploited by Robert Hunter Biden,” Comer (R-Ky.) and Greene (R-Ga.) wrote to DOJ human trafficking coordinator Hilary Axam and crime victims director Kristina Rose.
Comer and Greene resurrected the issue, which is less well-known than other allegations involving the Biden family, as special counsel David Weiss prepares to file federal charges against the 53-year-old first son.
Hunter Biden reportedly used at least $5,000 wired by his father to pay a Russian escort in Massachusetts, though there’s no evidence the elder Biden knew of the reason his son needed the money.
A list of women believed to have crossed state lines for paid sex with Hunter — possibly violating the Mann Act’s prohibition on interstate prostitution — was described in June 1 congressional testimony by IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler.
Violations of the Mann Act carry criminal penalties. In a high-profile recent case, it was used to prosecute billionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for sex-trafficking underage victims. --->READ MORE HERE

House Republicans Press DOJ for Info on Hunter Biden’s Alleged Prostitutes, Claim They May Be Trafficking Victims:
House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer (R., Ky.) and Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R., Ga.) claim Hunter Biden’s prostitutes are victims of sex trafficking in need of federal support, according to their jointly-written letter sent to the U.S. Department of Justice on Friday.
The pair inquired into whether the DOJ “is upholding the rights of victims who were sexually exploited” by the president’s son.
The letter follows the committee’s similar request in July, which also asked for “information regarding DOJ’s handling of victims’ rights in the Hunter Biden investigation.” Despite acknowledging it received the initial letter, the DOJ did not formally respond.
This week, both Comer and Greene decided to follow up with the department — specifically Hilary Axam, national human trafficking coordinator, and Kristina Rose, director of the Office for Victims of Crime.
“It is unclear to the Committee as to why you both made the alarming decision to ignore our original request,” the House Republicans wrote to Axam and Rose.
“This conduct is unprofessional and concerning given your leadership roles at DOJ. Considering the seriousness of this obstructive behavior, we request information as to whether anyone advised you not to respond to our inquiry, including any Department employee at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, DOJ Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA), Main Justice, or the White House,” the letter read. --->READ MORE HERE
