In a recent political showdown, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), sparked considerable controversy during Joe Biden’s impeachment inquiry by brandishing scandalous images from Hunter Biden’s laptop. Democratic representatives angrily responded, choosing to sidestep the issues instead.
Democrats hate it when I bring up Hunter Biden’s history of threatening women he trafficked for sex. https://t.co/V3DeCAd10l

However, Greene’s persistent display of images from Hunter Biden’s laptop depicting drug-fueled parties with prostitutes provoked several Democrats, including Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), into attacking the Republican lawmaker.
During the session, Raskin voiced his concerns: “Mr. Chairman, our colleague from Georgia has introduced explicit exhibits and displayed content that is deemed unsuitable for child viewers.”
Greene, undeterred, defended her actions, asserting, “It’s on the internet. It’s everywhere!”
Ocasio-Cortez weighed in, stating, “You are submitting a naked woman’s body.” To which Greene retorted, “This is a bathing suit… Do you have glasses on? Do you wear them or not?” “I have contacts in, thank you,” replied Ocasio-Cortez, ending the exchange with a curt “Congratulations” from Greene.
She also criticized the Department of Justice for not engaging with her on the matter, stating, “Hunter Biden needs to be held accountable for his exploitation of women. And we’ve presented more evidence. We’ve shown evidence. This is what it looks like.” This incident was not the first time Greene had drawn attention to the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
In a prior instance in July, Greene showcased explicit images from what she referred to as the “laptop from hell,” which triggered heated objections from Democrats.
Raskin raised the question, “Should we be displaying this, Mr. Chairman?” Hunter Biden’s attorney, Abbe David Lowell, reacted swiftly, filing an ethics complaint against Greene shortly afterward. Lowell decried the move as “abhorrent behavior that blatantly violates House Ethics rules and standards of official conduct.”
These events occurred in the background of Hunter Biden’s legal action against Rudy Giuliani over the laptop scandal. Hunter Biden claimed that the former New York City Mayor had hacked into the external hard drive and manipulated data.
The lawsuit accused Giuliani and former federal prosecutor Robert Costello of violating the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act by allegedly tampering with data obtained from Hunter Biden’s laptop computer, revealing a big legal challenge on the horizon for both Giuliani and Hunter Biden.
