Rick Scott still wants ‘the facts’ about Hunter Biden controversies

'We ought to know exactly what's happening.'

Rick Scott is ready for Republican scrutiny of the President’s son, Hunter Biden, if Republicans take back the Senate this year as he expects.

The subject had renewed interest given Biden’s appearance on “60 Minutes” Sunday evening.

“Let’s get the facts,” Scott said, regarding potential GOP investigations of Hunter Biden during a Monday interview on the Fox Business Network.

“No one wants to go after somebody, but we do expect to get the facts,” Scott said. “You’re the President of the United States. Your son’s doing business in places around the world. We ought to know exactly what’s happening.”

“I think he needs to come clean, tell us exactly what’s going on. He needs to come testify. We need to know exactly what the FBI has been doing. We’ve got to get the facts for the American public,” Scott added on “Mornings with Maria.” He has already urged a Senate Homeland Security Committee investigation of Biden.

Monday’s comments come after “60 Minutes” interviewer Scott Pelley asked Biden about Republicans being “likely to go after your son Hunter once again,” urging the President to say “whether any of his troubles have caused conflicts for you or for the United States.”

The President continues to say there are no conflicts of interest presented by his son.

“I love my son, number one. He fought an addiction problem. He overcame it. He wrote about it. And, no, there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all from (that) that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter,” President Biden said.

Like many Republicans, Scott has said repeatedly that Hunter Biden issues weigh on voters’ minds, calling for “the facts” on more than one occasion. Even before Joe Biden entered the White House, Scott was urging former President Donald Trump to appoint a special counsel.

“I think this is going to get worse and worse for the Biden family,” Scott said in April, after Fox News reported of Biden’s Chief of Staff soliciting money from Hunter Biden for the the Vice President’s Residence Foundation.

“I think they’re going to have done a lot of bad things. But let’s hear the facts. Whatever the facts are, the facts are. They need to quit lying.”

    Thank you Senator Scott!

    This issue will be front center and most likely end in resignations, Impeachments, and charges.

      Something someone’s kid did at a party doesn’t count for a hill of beans when it comes to impeachment. You’re still mad that Trump was a piece of sht and got impeached and lost. Trying to retaliate against Biden and scapegoat the Dems. Let’s hear some criticism about Trump lunacy and crime spree or you’ve got no credibility. Already no credibility because you constantly lie on this website. You piece of sht..

    ah, yes, Voldemort Scott and the rest of the GQP endlessly whines about “Hunter Biden” while they ALSO claim that Fat Hitler stealing all those top secret documents was “totally okay, and I’m sure he wasn’t going to sell any of them, and don’t worry about all those empty folders, either.”

    Do a little research on this thing called “chain of custody” regarding “hunter’s laptop,” cons – there’s NOTHING there, no matter how badly you want there to be, and then tell us about the $2 BILLION that Kushner and Ivanka got from the Saudis.

    Should we be getting the facts on the Trump children and son-in law? They apparently received billions of dollars when Donald was in the WH.
    Also, I would like to explore the rumor that Jared might have sold Top Secret Information .
    Now Rick. lets focus on your plan to uncut Medicare and Social Security. This issue is more important than Hunter’s foolishness.

    Hunter took money from the former mayor of Moscow’s wife, then he took money from a Ukrainian Energy company; shortly after the two countries involved with Hunter are at war. You have no idea the depth and level of treasonous acts that could have occurred and the level of National Security that was compromised. Then the cover-ups, misuse of positions by federal law enforcement agencies commenced at the request of Joe Biden. Watergate will look like a tea party. The Democrats world is about to be turned upside down.

    I ALMOST feel a little sorry for p-Rick. This nonsense is the best ad that the Fraudster could come up with after running out of RNSC campaign money while floating around on an Italian yacht! Keep reminding voters of Republican priorities, Rick!
