Breitbart News reports that 24 House Republicans wrote a letter to House Oversight Ranking Member Jamie Raskin (D-MD) on Thursday demanding an apology for “spreading disinformation” and “lies” after he flatly dismissed allegations that President Biden and son Hunter accepted a $10 million bribe.
Raskin — an anti-Trump hysteric, Progressive propagandist, and inveterate liar — recently argued that an FD-1023 form filed by an FBI informant and alleging that Hunter and Joe Biden each received a $5 million bribe was not credible he also falsely claimed that the U.S. Attorney’s office in Pittsburgh terminated the probe into the allegation.
“They’ve got nothing on President Joe Biden,” Raskin declared in September. “All they can do is return to the thoroughly demolished lie that Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump launched five years ago,” calling the evidence against the Bidens a “conspiracy theory” and a “fairytale.”
Republicans including Reps. Comer, Marjorie Taylor Greene (TN), Nancy Mace (SC), Byron Donalds (FL), and Eric Burlison (MO) demanded an apology from Raskin Thursday evening. “In the course of this investigation, you have been a spirited critic of the need to look into President Biden or his family,” they wrote. “However, the Oversight Committee must not be used as a means to propagate false or deceptive information, and for that purpose, we must address public statements you have made that contradict facts and are, unfortunately, lies.”
“The Committee requests that you formally correct the record and apologize to the American people for spreading disinformation about the evidence collected by the Committee during its investigation of President Biden,” they added.
