President Biden wished House Republicans “good luck” if they keep their promises to use a GOP majority to investigate his son Hunter’s dealings, saying he “cannot control what they will do.”
Biden, who took questions from the White House on Wednesday as the balance of power in Congress hangs in the balance, was asked about the intentions of congressional Republicans to launch a series of investigations into his presidency, cabinet officials, certain policies and his son’s business ventures and His family would get the majority in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
“Good luck in your senior year, like my coach always said,” Biden joked. “Look, I think the American public wants us to go ahead and get things done for them.”

He added: “Look, I can’t control what they’re going to do. All I can do is keep trying to make life better for the American people.”
Hunter Biden has been under federal investigation for his tax matters since 2018.
Fox News first reported in July that the federal investigation, being conducted by Trump-appointed Delaware Attorney David Weiss, has reached a “critical stage” and that state investigators are considering the charges.
Fox News reported in July that Weiss and Justice Department officials are considering whether to charge Hunter Biden with various tax violations and, worse, possible foreign lobbying violations.
The source at the time said Hunter Biden could potentially be charged with making false statements that could be related to whether he lied during a 2018 gun purchase.
Fox News first reported last year that in 2018 police responded to an incident in which a Hunter Biden gun was thrown into a trash can outside a Delaware market.

A source told Fox News that a final decision has not yet been made on whether to charge Hunter Biden and stressed that the investigation is ongoing.
Fox News first reported in December 2020 that Hunter Biden was the subject/target of the grand jury investigation, according to a well-placed government source.
The federal investigation into Hunter Biden was justified in part by suspicious transaction reports (SARs) relating to foreign transactions.
Another source familiar with the investigation told Fox News in December 2020 that the SARs involved funds from “China and other foreign nations.”
