House Republicans James Comer and Marjorie Taylor Greene have sent a letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) calling for an investigation into allegations that Hunter Biden may have exploited prostitutes, potentially violating sex trafficking laws.

The request comes in the wake of a long-standing scandal surrounding racy photos of Hunter Biden on a laptop found at a Delaware computer repair shop. In June, IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler testified that Hunter Biden had flown women across state lines, potentially violating federal laws against human trafficking.

Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, James Comer, penned a letter to the DOJ's Office for Victims of Crime Director, Kristina Rose, demanding that information regarding the investigation should be sent by September 22nd. The letter emphasized that these women may be victims and could be entitled to mandatory restitution.

House Republicans Comer and Greene expressed skepticism over the DOJ's handling of the case, stating that the DOJ's refusal to communicate with the Committee indicated a lack of adequate communication with crime victims.

The letter also highlighted the possible violation of DOJ policies by ignoring the Committee's request. The lawmakers questioned whether anyone within the Department, including U.S. Attorney's Office in Delaware, DOJ Office of Legislative Affairs, Main Justice, or the White House, had advised the DOJ not to respond to inquiries.

Amidst the ongoing investigation into Hunter Biden's activities, special counsel David Weiss is preparing to indict Hunter on gun charges. The Speedy Trial Act requires the indictment to be obtained by September 29th at the earliest.
