A watchdog group examining Hunter Biden's laptop has released a report documenting more than 400 alleged crimes involving the president's son and his business partners.

Marco Polo, a non-profit watchdog group created specifically to peruse the laptop and document its contents, has released a comprehensive report documenting 459 alleged crimes, including state and federal violations, committed by Hunter Biden and his associates.

Founded by former Trump aide Garrett Ziegler, the group describes itself as a "nonprofit research group exposing corruption and blackmail to drive an American renaissance."

"This Report would not have been necessary if law enforcement had done its job. Dereliction of duty is nothing new for the FBI, as its government-sponsored cover-up occurred with Anthony Weiner's devices," the watchdog asserts at the report's outset. "Additionally, besides a few notable exceptions, news outlets and think tanks in America have been unwilling to investigate and expose the hundreds of crimes and conflicts of interest on the Biden Laptop which — as you will read — definitively implicate the sitting president, Joe Biden."

Zeigler told the Daily Wire that he created the report to pressure Republicans to act on the allegations against Hunter. "The focus of the report is on crimes... I had a compulsion to log every crime, even the state-level statutes," he said. "The mission is simple: Hold Republicans' feet to the fire. We don't want to hear that Republicans need another year to do an investigation. I've done that here."

Just the News has sought comment from Ziegler and Hunter Biden's attorney.

Included in the 644-page report (which is too large to include in this article) is an itemized list that includes the dates, venue, alleged accomplices, and relevant statutes for each alleged wrongdoing. The alleged crimes include a myriad of transgressions, ranging from personal misconduct such as prostitution, to fraudulent business activities. The report makes heavy reference to reporting by Just the News Editor-in-Chief John Solomon and reporter Daniel Payne.

The laptop became public when the New York Post published its contents prior to the 2020 presidential election. The story was heavily censored on social media and derided as "Russian disinformation." It was ultimately verified, but not before President Joe Biden claimed victory in the electoral contest. Marco Polo includes a lengthy timeline of the New York Post story's publication and the subsequent responses from government and social media organizations to it.

Hunter's legal woes and scandalous lifestyle have long been focal points for criticism of the Biden family. Earlier this year, Breitbart News distributed "My Son Hunter," a feature film depicting the life of the nation's first son based on the materials within the laptop.
