During a Republican-led oversight committee listening to concerning IRS whistleblowers linked to a probe into President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, Marjorie Taylor Greene confirmed express photographs of the president’s son on posters.
The Georgia Republican held up a sequence of posters with photographs of Hunter Biden bare and photographs of him partaking in sexual acts on the Congressional listening to on Wednesday.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene is literally showing dick pics at our Oversight Hearing,” California congressman Robert Garcia tweeted.
“Marjorie Taylor Greene is currently brandishing Hunter Biden nudes during a House hearing. I’m not going to post it. Disgusting,” journalist Aaron Rupar tweeted, including: “Your taxpayer dollars paid for Marjorie Taylor Greene to print Hunter Biden nudes on poster board so she could pull this stunt during a House hearing.”
The Lincoln Project tweeted: “The GOP is getting teachers fired for teaching sex ed while the GOP shows porn on the House floor.”
Florida Republican Byron Donalds got here to her defence: “According to @RepRaskin & @danielsgoldman, the explicit images of Hunter Biden presented by @RepMTG are TOO RACY for the Oversight Committee & demanded they go away. These are the same Democrats that want this material IN OUR KIDS’ SCHOOLS. Please spare me the outrage.”
“I wonder how many hours MTG has spent reviewing the Hunter Biden videos and images. Deep and penetrating analysis,” lawyer Brad Moss mused.
“Before we begin, I would like to let the committee and everyone watching at home that parental discretion is advised,” the Georgia Republican stated as she began her questioning.
“Hunter recorded multiple sex tapes with a prostitute he had paid for out of his law firm’s bank,” one poster learn.
On one other poster, which depicted a blown up airline ticket, Ms Greene pointed to Hunter Biden’s identify saying it confirmed that he bought the ticket “for this woman,” she stated, pointing to a lady’s bare backside half.
She then requested the witness: “I would like to point out that if he was purchasing a plane ticket for her for sex and traveling across state lines, do you believe that to be a violation of the Mann Act?”
The Mann Act, a federal legislation, makes it unlawful to move “any woman or girl for the purpose of prostitution or debauchery, or for any other immoral purpose.”
The witness didn’t absolutely reply the query when the Georgia congresswoman held up one other express photograph, saying “Hunter Biden paid for this woman to do this with him.”
The House panel’s high Democrat Jamie Raskin at one level interjected: “Should we be displaying this in the committee?”
New York Democratic Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez additionally referred to as out the Georgia Republican’s strikes, seeming to level out similarities between claims in opposition to Hunter Biden and Florida Rep Matt Gaetz: “If the gentlelady from Georgia wanted to follow evidence, we should also take a look at, hypothetically … sex trafficking charges against a 17-year-old girl…”
Prosecutors investigated whether or not Mr Gaetz could have been concerned in a scheme to site visitors a 17-year-old woman. However, in February the Department of Justice informed him that no fees could be introduced in opposition to him. Mr Gaetz had repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
