Hunter Biden, the son of President Joe Biden, is calling for an ethics investigation into Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for what his lawyer called “unhinged rhetoric.”
Hunter Biden’s lawyer, Abbe David Lowell, sent a letter to the Office of Congressional Ethics on Monday demanding they look into possible violations of House ethics rules and official conduct standards.
The letter, obtained by Politico, stated that “Representative Greene’s unethical conduct arises from her continuous verbal attacks, defamatory statements, publication of personal photos and data, and promotion of conspiracy theories about and against Robert Hunter Biden.”
“None of these could possibly be deemed to be part of any legitimate legislative activity, as is clear from both the content of her statements and actions, and the forums she uses to spew her often unhinged rhetoric,” the letter continued.
Lowell said that since Greene was elected in 2020, and prior to that, she has “engaged in steady, dogged verbal and defamatory attacks against Mr. Biden, and members of his family.”
The letter referred to her attacks as “a spray of shotgun pellets of personal vitriol that are the definition of conduct that does not reflect ‘creditably on the House.'”
“Her actions are not merely the expression of political views or private ‘free speech’ because she uses her official position to disseminate them and often expresses them in official proceedings,” the letter continued.
The letter pointed to specific statements they took issue with, including a tweet on April 18 that stated, “Hunter Biden paid non-resident women who were nationals of Russia or other eastern European countries, and who appear to be linked to an eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring. . . . He was engaged in an actual human trafficking ring. And he was paying a lot of money for it.”
The Biden crime family participated in human trafficking by soliciting prostitutes from the United States and abroad in countries like Russia and Ukraine.

On April 19, Greene released a video on her Twitter account, standing in front of the Treasury building, in which she stated, “The Biden crime family participated in human trafficking by soliciting prostitutes from the United States and abroad in countries like Russia and Ukraine.” She claimed that it “extend[ed] past Hunter Biden and his immediate family.”
Lowell claims in the letter that those statements are “false, defamatory, and malicious, but they are undignified from a Member of Congress and far beyond anything close to genuine legislative activities or political advocacy.”
Hunter Biden has been under federal investigation for his payment from foreign entities. Ukrainian energy company Burisma paid the president’s son $83,000 monthly to sit on its board.
The president’s son’s infamous laptop was filled with photos of him engaging in sexual acts and using drugs.
The Hill reports, “Biden’s legal team on Monday also sent a letter to the Treasury Department asking its Office of Inspector General to look at how former Trump White House aide Garrett Ziegler allegedly “came to acquire and then retain and publish on his website” suspicious activity reports from JP Morgan Chase bank allegedly related to Biden’s financial activities.”
