Far-right Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) brought sexually explicit posters to a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday. The meeting was gathered to question the IRS “whistleblowers” who investigated Hunter Biden.

Last month, Hunter Biden reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors for charges of tax fraud and wrongful possession of a firearm. He pleaded guilty to two counts of tax fraud and agreed to a two-year probation period, with the hopes of getting the ladder charge dropped upon its completion.

In an attempt to accuse President Joe Biden’s son of using his company to write off payments to prostitutes, Greene held up small posters that captured Hunter Biden engaging in sexual acts. The faces of others involved were censored with black boxes, but Hunter Biden’s face was visible in all photos.

Greene also raised questions about possible violations of the Mann Act, which deems it illegal to transport women across state lines for the purpose of prostitution.

Ziegler and Gary Shapley, another IRS “whistleblower,” testified to the committee that they disapproved of how prosecutors handled Hunter Biden’s case, accusing them of moving too slowly.

Democrats offered evidence that both men had shown political basis in the case and therefore could not be viewed as legitimate “whistleblowers.”
