(RoyalPatriot.com )- This weekend, Republican Congressman Darrell Issa revealed that GOP lawmakers have obtained a copy of the hard drive from Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop and would not be waiting for the appointment of a special counsel to begin its own investigation.
Appearing on Fox News Channel’s Sunday Morning Futures, Congressman Issa said with the hard drive, Republicans have a “treasure trove” of information to investigate.

Republican lawmakers have been pressing the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel to investigate Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings, the details of which are contained in emails and documents found on Hunter’s laptop that was abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop in 2019.
In a recent letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, dozens of Republican lawmakers argued for the appointment of a special counsel and raised concerns over the potential conflict of interest that would prevent “a fair and impartial investigation” by the DOJ into Hunter Biden’s foreign activities.
Congressman Issa, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee’s panel on intellectual property and the internet, has already sent document preservation notices in preparation for a Republican-led investigation into the efforts to suppress the initial reporting on Hunter’s laptop in the weeks before the 2020 election.
Florida Republican Matt Gaetz, meanwhile, is working to get the contents of Hunter’s hard drive formally included in the congressional record.
Republican lawmakers have indicated that if they retake the House in November, they will pursue investigations into Hunter Biden’s business dealings and President Biden’s possible involvement.
According to New York Times report from early April, a witness appearing before the federal grand jury in Delaware was asked to identify the “big guy” mentioned in Hunter’s discussions about a Chinese business deal.
The answer the witness gave is not known as testimony before a grand jury is secret. However, it is believed that Joe Biden is “the big guy.”
The White House adamantly denies that President Biden had any involvement in Hunter Biden’s shady foreign deals and has argued that Hunter’s business dealings do not violate the law.
