The House Oversight and Reform Committee has some sharply pointed questions for “Hollywood attorney” Kevin Morris. They would really like to know all about his “sudden patronage” of Hunter Biden. Conservative Kentucky lawmaker James Comer was working overtime when he typed their letter on Sunday, June 12.

Committee probe of Hunter’s dealings

Writing for the entire House Oversight and Reform Committee, Representative Comer informed left-coast lawyer Kevin Morris that the panel is investigating Hunter Biden’s “domestic and international business dealings.

What they’re trying to figure out is whether “these activities compromise U.S. national security and President Biden’s ability to lead with impartiality.” Morris might be able to help them get a handle on that, they suggest.

The committee is “concerned,” they write.

Your sudden patronage of the President’s son, enormous financial contributions to President Biden, and outsized role you are taking in defending against both congressional and criminal investigations raise serious concerns about whether you are providing in-kind contributions to President Biden’s re-election efforts.” Ouch, that smarts!

What the oversight committee letter was talking about is a recent report that appeared in the New York Times. It “indicated Morris sent $2 million to Hunter Biden to help support his family and pay back taxes subject to a federal investigation.

That loan, Comer notes “may complicate” the government’s case against Hunter Biden.

Organized group of investors

Forgetting all about the 2 mil for a moment, Comer moved on to inquire about the “group of lawyers and investigators” Morris organized “to determine how the press initially discovered the laptop containing sensitive personal and business information about him.

The committee heard about that in a report from CBS News. Quite a few of their members are pondering that Hunter’s back-door dialogs with China “could be linked to unethical actions by the elder Biden when he was vice president.

The committee investigation is already moving but after the mid-terms it will really get steamrolling along. Morris, the letter points out, apparently “performed some actions” that seem a little shady. For instance, some of the financial dealings look a lot like “an attempt to ‘shield’ the Bidens from congressional oversight.

Another questionable tactic was the way Morris wrote off his “pro bono legal advice to Hunter Biden” for his obligatory community service as a member of the state bar, it appears to also be “an in-kind contribution.” The Federal Election Commission defines that as “goods or services offered free or at less than the usual charge,” they remind.

Morris can get the committee off his back by sending over his proof that “his interactions with both Hunter Biden and President Biden have been legal.” They have a particular batch of records in mind.

Things like “any type of contract between Morris and Hunter Biden regarding the loan being used to pay taxes, documents and communications concerning the Federal Election Commission, all documents shared between Morris or his representatives and the president, and any informational aid used by Morris to describe the investigations of Hunter Biden, his father or another Biden associate.” Stay tuned for updates as they develop. Morris has until June 27 to hand over the documents.
