Rep. Lee Zeldin called for a criminal investigation of the Biden family after a series of emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop were leaked to the press.

Lee Zeldin’s call for an investigation comes after Fox News reported that a person who was on an email thread with Joe Bidens son confirmed to the news network that the emails were accurate.

Fox News’ focused on a series of emails, which appeared “to outline a payout for former Vice President Joe Biden as part of a deal with a Chinese energy firm.”

“One email, dated May 13, 2017, and obtained by Fox News, includes a discussion of ‘remuneration packages’ for six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm. The email appeared to identify Biden as ‘Chair / Vice Chair depending on agreement with CEFC,’ in an apparent reference to now-bankrupt CEFC China Energy Co,” Fox News reported.

Bernard B. Kerik, 40th Police Commissioner of the New York City Police Department, wrote on Twitter: “I personally had the opportunity to review the hard drive belonging to Hunter Biden. If the @FBI and @TheJusticeDept arrested Paul Manafort, then Hunter, James, and @JoeBiden belongs in handcuffs? AND THAT, is just for starters. #China #Iraq #Ukraine”

“Hunter and @JoeBiden have bigger problems than @RudyGiuliani and the @FBI,” Kerik added. “These images, emails, and other documents were on Hunter’s cell phone and computer… which means the Ukrainian and Chinese intelligence networks has them as well. Who allowed him on Air Force Two?”

Lawmakers demand answers over missing laptop at FBI

Nineteen House lawmakers sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray demanding an investigation into the disappearance of Hunter Biden’s laptop.

“Yesterday, the New York Post published an article entitled, ‘Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad,’” the letter, dated Thursday, stated. “The article documents how a recently uncovered laptop and hard drive allegedly revealed e-mails to and from Hunter Biden that strongly indicated that former Vice President Joe Biden was, in fact, aware of his son’s overseas dealings.”

CBS News investigative reporter Catherine Herridge obtained the letter and posted it to her Twitter account late on Friday evening. Daily Wire reported

“Most concerning in the article was the allegation that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was in possession of this computer and hard drive back in December 2019,” the letter continued. “This action took place right at the end of the U.S. House of Representative’s impeachment sham against President Donald J. Trump, and right before the U.S. Senate tried the case. A large portion of the President’s legal defense case revolved around strong evidence that former Vice President Biden’s son, Hunter, was peddling his influence to this father to land lucrative jobs overseas that he might not have otherwise been qualified for.”

“If the FBI was, in fact, in possession of this evidence and failed to alert the White House to its existence that would have given more weight to the President’s legal defense, this was a gross error in judgment and a severe violation of trust,” the letter continued.
