Were Hunter Biden’s prostitutes victims of sex trafficking? House Committee wants answers from DOJ



House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer (R-KY) and Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) sent a joint letter to the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) Friday expressing concern about Hunter Biden’s prostitutes. The letter makes a claim that Hunter’s prostitutes are victims of sex trafficking in need of federal support and questions if the DOJ “is upholding the rights of victims who were sexually exploited” by the president’s son.

The Committee has not received a formal response from a similar letter sent in July to the DOJ which asked for “information regarding DOJ’s handling of victims’ rights in the Hunter Biden investigation.”

“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 Hilary Axam, national human trafficking coordinator, and Kristina Rose, director of the Office for Victims of Crime.

“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 stated.

Comer and Greene referenced congressional testimony from IRS whistleblower Joseph Ziegler, who said in June Hunter Biden violated the Mann Act by engaging in interstate prostitution. According to Ziegler, the DOJ was “compiling” a list of women in its investigation of Hunter Biden. However, Ziegler said at the time he didn’t “know what ultimately happened” to the list.

“These women may be victims under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act and may also be afforded mandatory restitution pursuant to the Mandatory Victim Restitution Act,” the letter read.  “In light of DOJ’s refusal to communicate in a meaningful way with the Committee, we have great skepticism that DOJ has been adequately communicating with crime victims.”

The DOJ has until September 22 to respond.
