Republican Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz repeatedly pressed Assistant Attorney General for National Security Matthew Olsen on Hunter Biden during a Thursday hearing.
Gaetz pressed Olsen on whether the president’s son’s business dealings are a threat to national security, accusing the Attorney General’s office of taking no action in investigating possible criminal activity by the president’s son.
“Is Hunter Biden a national security threat?” the representative asked.
“That’s not a question that would come before me,” Olsen said.
“You’re the head of the National Security division, so it seems sort of on the nose,” Gaetz pressed.
Olsen claimed it is not his job to label any individual or American citizen as a national security threat. Gaetz suggested that Hunter Biden would be a national security threat if Bidens were “compromised,” to which Olsen said his division investigates these matters in open court.
