Dozens of Republican senators are requesting that Attorney General Merrick Garland give special counsel authority to the U.S. attorney investigating President Biden's son, Hunter Biden.

The 33 senators wrote in a letter sent to Garland on Monday that "given the politicization" of the Justice Department under his watch, they're asking him to grant special counsel protections and authorities to U.S. Attorney for Delaware David Weiss, who was appointed by former President Donald Trump.

"There is no way of knowing the entire scope of the investigation, but evidence seems to be mounting that Hunter Biden committed numerous federal crimes, including, but not limited to, tax fraud, money laundering, and foreign-lobbying violations," the senators wrote in the letter obtained boy Fox News.

"It is clear that Hunter Biden thrived off of a 'pay to play' culture of access to his father, then Vice President Joe Biden in exchange for financial compensation," the lawmakers asserted.
