House Investigation Uncovers Massive Bribery and Money Laundering Scheme Involving Almost Entire Biden Family
This week, the House Oversight and Accountability Committee on which I serve, provided evidence exposing a detailed scheme in which Joe Biden and several members of the Biden crime syndicate set up shell companies and received over $10 million dollars from foreign governments while Biden was Vice President of the United States. The bottom line is despite Biden’s repeated and continuing denials, bank records show that Biden and his family took in millions of dollars from foreign companies and governments, including China and Romania. Here’s just one example that the House Oversight Committee outlined this week:
- In May 2014, Vice President Biden visits Romania
- In November 2015, the Prime Minister of Romania visits the White House
- In December 2015, Biden business associate, Rob Walker, receives $3 million from a Romanian businessman
- Between 2015-2017 Biden business associate Rob Walker pays $1 million to members of the Biden family
Who can forget Joe Biden, in a 2020 presidential debate with President Trump, telling Americans that he never profited from foreign sources? It was a big, fat impeachable lie. It is corrupt and it is prosecutable.
What next? Criminal prosecutions. Nothing less is acceptable. Perhaps the Department of Justice will act with the same speed they used to raid Trump’s home in Mar-a-Lago Or the same speed they did to indict Congressman Santos for the most minor “crimes” jurists have seen.
Don’t forget the millions paid to Hunter Biden by Ukraine or the “10% for the big guy” that witnesses said meant Joe Biden himself. Don’t forget Biden’s trip to Ukraine to threaten an independent prosecutor who was investigating corruption involving the Biden family. He got the prosecutors fired by extorting the Ukraine government with foreign aid already approved by Congress.
If you’re wondering why nearly $200 billion of your tax money has been sent to Ukraine (and remember just last month we learned Zelenskyy stole about $400 million for his personal use) it is because Ukraine has been paying the Biden family bribes. There is no other way to slice it.
I’ve said from the outset that we have no business in Ukraine. The Bidens literally do. The American taxpayers have no interest there. We are not “defending democracy.” There is nothing democratic about Ukraine. It is a dictatorship by an illegitimate government installed by a coup. It has banned free speech. It has banned Christianity. It has banned opposition parties. It is ranked among the most corrupt countries in the world. Of which the Bidens have taken full advantage. We are not allies with Ukraine. We should not be enemies with Russia.
We need peace there. We need to stop the killing on both sides.
Sending our weapons and troops (aka “advisors”) has NOT been approved by Congress. Only Congress can authorize war. Yet here we are in a war thousands of miles away because the Biden family has been bribed by Ukraine and the Bidens are defending their sources of money. This is not our war and it is high time for Americans to realize that.

Republicans in Congress Vote to Secure the Border, Protect Americans
This week, I joined my Republican colleagues in voting for H.R. 2, the Secure the Border Act, legislation to keep America safe by securing our border. Because of Joe Biden’s disastrous open border policies, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are literally rushing across our border, destroying communities, overwhelming our hospitals and costing American taxpayers nearly $200 billion dollars. Biden has created the worst border crisis in our lifetime, welcoming with open arms more than 6.5 million lawbreakers into our nation since his first day in office. Alarmingly, more than 14,000 pounds of deadly fentanyl have poured into our country during Biden’s time in office. In the last 18 months, 178 terrorists have crossed the southern border. With this vote, Republicans have done what Joe Biden refuses to do: secure the border, stop the lawlessness and make America safe.
Did you know that your tax money is being spent on illegal aliens as soon as they arrive for expenses including:
- Free transportation anywhere in the U.S.
- Free food and vouchers
- Free healthcare
- Free school
- Free job placement
- Free housing including apartments and hotel rooms
- Free local transportation
- Free cell phones and cell phone plans
And by “free” I mean you and I paid for all of it with our taxes.
Can you imagine a country that treats its own citizens like dirt, imposes draconian taxes on your hard work but rolls out the red carpet for illegal aliens?
You don’t have to imagine. You live in that country. I think it is long past due we start the impeachment proceedings. The deliberate open border is a breach of the one duty Joe Biden has—to faithfully execute our laws.
Trump had the border practically locked down by 2020. Make no mistake. This is no “event.” This is a deliberate implementation by people who hate their own country.

Gosar Announces Winners of 2023 Congressional Art Competition
This weekend, I had the honor to announce the winners of Arizona's Ninth Congressional District Art Competition. This annual contest, first started in 1982 and with over 650,000 participants since, recognizes the best art of the year from high school students. The winners were selected from a panel of local judges and the "People's Choice" winner was selected via online voting.
The winning artist is invited to attend the annual awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. and their artwork will be displayed for one year on the wall in the walkway from the Cannon House Office Building to the United States Capitol. The second-place winning artwork will be displayed in my office in D.C. and the third-place winning artwork will be displayed in my district office in Goodyear. All winners will receive scholarship funds from Mohave Community College. I want to thank Emily Gordon, Education Director of the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, all the students, teachers, judges and everyone who voted online to help make this year’s art competition a wonderful success.

Gosar Recognizes National Treatment Court Month
One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is recognizing the heroes who defend our freedoms. Over the years, I have had the privilege to attend many Veterans Treatment Court graduation ceremonies. Sadly, one in five veterans have symptoms of a mental health disorder or cognitive impairment caused from combat service. Veterans Treatment Centers address the treatment needs of justice-involved veterans by providing a dignified and important alternative to traditional criminal processing. May is National Treatment Court Month and wonderful opportunity to recognize the ways treatment courts, like drug courts and veterans treatment courts, are changing lives and improving communities in my district and across the country. I am very proud of all the veterans and their families who have participated in these life-saving programs.
Child Sex Mutilation Continues, Do Not Believe for a Minute This is “Healthcare”
The grotesque fad of chemically castrating boys or performing breast removal surgery on girls is not healthcare. This is a shameful time for those doctors and hospitals that enjoy mutilating children—for obscene profits (surgery costs about $150,000).
As a society, we have decided that children and young adults have not developed the mental capacity to make wise decisions in certain areas. For example, If you are under 21 you can’t rent a car, buy tobacco, buy a shot of whiskey and you have to be 18 to vote or buy a gun. You are, after all, still maturing.
However, today, a five-year-old or 10 year-old child can “decide” they are really the opposite gender, and once a doctor at a children’s hospital gets a whiff of that, they smell profits and want to start the process of chemically, surgically, often permanently castrating boys and maiming girls. It is horribly disfiguring of our children.
In my view this is not healthcare, this is abuse. It is parental-abuse for any parent to subject their child to this. It is unethical and unprofessional for any hospital or doctor to participate in this mutilation.
Victims of this abuse are starting to speak up, but for many it is too late.
If a person is 18 or older, and they want to castrate themselves, I would recommend counseling for mental illness, but at least they have reached the age of majority where they can make decisions, even dumb decisions, on their own behalf.
There is no excuse for any doctor who does this mutilation on anyone under 18. I would vote to criminalize this practice and revoke the medical license of any quack that does these surgeries and hormone treatments.
History will prove us right. The Leftists agitating for child mutilation are fundamentally demonic and harming children.
This story is about a hospital in Minnesota claiming that “gender dysphoria” is just like asthma and diabetes. It is not. It is about big money for this hospital—a hospital that cares nothing about the long term impacts its actions will have on these children.
More Propaganda From the DOD
It was recently reported in The Intercept that the Biden regime has created two new federal departments to lie to the American taxpayers and propagandize us. The recent disclosures from a patriot whistleblower shows how the Biden regime and the Department of Defense (DoD), among other agencies, routinely lie to us, in the most current example, about the war in Ukraine.
Flush off the whistleblower revelations of massive government lying about Ukraine, we now learn that the Pentagon will oversee the “Influence and Perception Management Office,” which is consistent with the accepted truism that “Perception Management” is an old DoD euphemism for psychological “warfare and deception.”
Journalist Robert Parry notes that prior administrations have used propaganda to mislead American taxpayers using “Perception Management” with the sole purpose of overcoming the American public’s “Vietnam Syndrome”—which is our well-earned reticence to let our military get involved in every conflict around the world. We lost Vietnam and lost 56,000 good soldiers in a pointless war. We now also have Iraq Syndrome and Afghanistan Syndrome, which are the same syndromes—we are tired of fighting every war everywhere all the time and getting our people killed. And wasting a trillion dollars in the process.
A Russian Sanctions Update
Currently the Biden Regime has forced economic sanctions on Russia to the extent it is now the most sanctioned economy in the world. More than Iran. Like everything else Biden and democrats touch, they screwed this up too.
Check out this headline: Russia Returns to Top-10 World's Largest Economies First Since 2014
So now Russia is doing better than ever thanks to the democrat’s stupidity. Remember, Obama himself said you can always count on Joe Biden to “f%#* things up.”
One of my former staffers sent his comment in:
“The stupidity of sanctioning an oil, gas, and petrochemical exporting state while simultaneously reducing your own production is truly something to behold. It’s the kind of stupidity that wins prizes. If they really wanted it to work, they would’ve unleashed our own oil and gas production, but they didn’t.”
I could not have said it better.
It’s Mail Time!
I appreciate hearing from my constituents. It’s not quite mid-month and I’ve already received over 4,000 letters in May! While we don’t always agree and some are downright nasty, I try my best to respond to everyone. Here’s a small sample of the letters I received just this week:
Savannah L. from Surprise sent in this note:
Hello please remove my name from your list as I do not agree with what you are saying about Biden's fight to help transgender youth. This is care affirm care for children that just want to be who they are. You have no right to impose on what someone chooses to do with their life or how they live it. They are not hurting anyone so let them be them. The thought to pursue themselves in order for them to feel comfortable and happy inside is already hard enough, they don't need outside voices like government officials telling them 'what they feel is a phase or wrong,' so leave them alone please!
Dear Savannah—see my comments above. Children under the age of 18 are too young to make a permanent life altering decision. They can’t even buy a pack of cigarettes for crying out loud. You try to sound compassionate. But really you are condoning child abuse and child mutilation. Your words will not cover up this reality. As you requested—you will be permanently blocked. I will also stand up for our children and no amount of fake compassion is going to change that. Good riddance.
Rosemary M. from Scottsdale shares:
I see that you are up to your regular hate speech, using rhetoric like "satanic", "demonic" and so on, to rile up the people who believe in the devil, demons, and other boogey men whom superstitious idiots believe in. You will always appeal to this tiny demographic who have strange ideas. No one who believes in solid, patriotic, down -to -earth ideals will ever do anything but read your diatribes for a good laugh. Funny stuff!!
Dear Rosemary. I believe in a good and gracious God. I believe in his son Jesus Christ as our divine savior. Hundreds of millions of Americans share that belief. You don’t have to. It is not “hate speech” to share my views. Only a bigoted and narrow-minded person would claim Christianity is “hate speech.”
John S. from Prescott offers his view on my recent trip to Hungary:
I just want to compliment you on your address to the president of Hungary. I feel it was an address from the heart. You are to be complimented on it. Thank God Joe Biden wasn’t making that address.
Thank you, John. I appreciate your thoughtful note. The Hungarians are doing a great job. It was amazing to be in a country where the government cares about the people. Not criminals. Not illegal aliens. The people. We can learn a lot from Hungary.
Angel V. from Surprise shared this novel idea:
I have an idea on how to reduce expenses and, in turn, reduce our debt burdening future generations: stop sending our money to other nations, ESPECIALLY to UKRAINE! Zelenskyy is BLEEDING THE UNITED STATES DRY!!!!!
Dear Angel: You’re exactly spot on!
