Former President Trump has accused Senate Republicans of going soft on President Biden amid ‘terrifying revelations’ coming out of the Hunter Biden investigation, which shows a rift between the House and Senate GOP.
Trump wrote on Truth Social on Monday, ‘Joe Biden is the most corrupt president in the history of the United States, which is being irrefutably proven every day in the House of Representatives.
A new report from the New York Post claims Hunter Biden’s post comes after he dialed his then-Vice-President father, Joe Biden, during meetings with his foreign business partners.
‘But with all these horrific revelations and facts, why hasn’t the Republican ‘leadership’ in the Senate spoken up and reprimanded Crooked Joe Biden and the Radical Left Democrats, Fascists and Marxists for crimes against our country, some of them against me. How long must America wait for the Senate?’ Trump added.

The House GOP has long been more pro-Trump than the Senate.
Devon Archer, a former business partner and friend of the first son, is expected to testify before the House Oversight Committee this week that the elder Biden sat in on both in-person and phone meetings with Hunter and his foreign business partners, even as Joe Biden claims he never discussed business dealings with his son.
It is unclear when Archer’s testimony will take place as Newstimesuk.com has learned that he has canceled three scheduled appearances before the committee.
The Archer committee is expected to speak to Joe Hunter’s business associates, including Burisma, at least 24 times.
Both Archer and another business associate, Tony Bobulinski, said Joe Biden offered short wishes and platitudes to Hunter’s business partners rather than concrete deals.
But Archer’s testimony will further challenge the White House’s insistence that Joe Biden had no knowledge of or involvement in his wayward son’s business affairs.
Republicans on the House Oversight, Judiciary and Ways and Means committees set out their views on Hunter Biden’s business deals, as well as what they see as preferential treatment from the Justice Department.
Democrats control power in the upper chamber of Congress — so the committees are not investigating the Biden family. But still, the House tends to be more pro-Trump than the Senate.
The former president has done this for years with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – branding the Kentucky Republican an ‘old crow’ – despite their close working relationship during the Trump administration.
McConnell has sharply criticized Trump’s actions after the 2020 election.
But last week Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, joined the Oversight Committee to release bombshell FD-1023 — a document that included details of an unverified tip alleging that both Hunter and Joe Biden paid $5 million in bribes in exchange for policy decisions.
The Biden team has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing.
Last week, an IRS whistleblower named Joseph Ziegler testified before the Oversight Committee that the Biden family received more than $17 million in foreign payments.
Ziegler and IRS Supervisory Agent Gary Shapley testified before the House Oversight Committee that their investigation ‘supported felony and misdemeanor tax charges’, which were ultimately not brought against the president’s son Hunter due to political pressure.
Ziegler, a 13-year veteran of the IRS who was the lead case agent in the Hunter investigation, claimed that the federal tax investigation of the president’s son ‘supported felony and misdemeanor tax charges’ — instead of just misdemeanor tax charges — that Hunter was slated to plead guilty to and would allow him to avoid separate prosecutions as part of the case next week.

The agents said under oath that U.S. Attorney David Weiss, the lead Hunter Biden prosecutor, asked Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney Matthew Graves to bring the charges. But after Graves refused, Weiss dropped the possible criminal charges and struck a plea deal with the president’s son.
‘I saw the US attorney [David] Weiss told a room full of senior FBI and IRS senior leaders on Oct. 7, 2022, that he was not the person making the decision on whether charges were filed,’ Shapley said, contradicting Weiss’ previous public statements.
“If Delaware US Attorney David Weiss followed DOJ policy as he stated in his recent letter, Hunter Biden should have been charged with tax crimes, and not just tax misdemeanors,” Ziegler said. ‘We have to treat every taxpayer the same under the law.’
Members of the Biden family may have accepted more than $40 million from foreign nationals in exchange for making favorable policy decisions, Oversight Chairman James Comer, R-Ky. He previously made the claim amid his committee’s ongoing investigation into the Bidens’ finances.
Paying countries include China, Romania and Ukraine.
‘It was organized crime – there’s no other way to define it,’ he complained in an interview last month.
The chairman said his committee had identified ‘six specific policy decisions’ in which President Joe Biden acted where the president was ‘uncompromising’ except that the committee ‘could come to no other conclusion’.
Comer then said he was confident his investigation would turn up evidence of ‘at least $17 million’ in foreign payments, but he ‘wouldn’t be surprised if the transactions exceeded $40 million plus.’
The Oversight Committee chairman also said his panel had received more bank statements and Treasury reports of suspicious activity suggesting ‘more bank accounts, more shell companies and more Biden involved in an alleged policy pedaling scheme.
The committee is expected to release those bank statements next week.
