Republicans are claiming that President Joe Biden was involved in his son Hunter's controversial foreign business deals, which allegedly spans 50 different countries, lawmakers said in a press conference on Thursday.

It comes one day after the GOP clinched 218 seats in the House of Representatives, cementing their majority - and investigative powers - in the next Congress.

The president has long denied involvement in and knowledge of his son's foreign dealings - some of which are being investigated by federal authorities.

But Rep. James Comer accused Biden of being 'chairman of the board' of his family's business dealings and even claimed the White House spent more than $250,000 to deflect negative stories about Hunter.
