If you do not have anything to hide, why deny the records?
That is the question every American should be asking the Treasury Department today.
The department declined a request by a GOP congressional committee solely because the GOP is not the majority.
Republican lawmakers are looking to make their own deep dive into Hunter Biden's finances since the DOJ is clearly slow-walking this case.
After requesting Hunter's financial records, the GOP-run committee was told no.
The reason… according to the Treasury Department, since the Democrats are running the show, it does not have to turn over the records unless the Democrats tell them to do so.
Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee and Reform Committee James Comer (R-KY) stated, "The Biden Administration is restricting Congress' access to SARs, and Committee Republicans are investigating whether this change in longstanding policy is motivated by efforts to shield Hunter Biden and potentially President Biden from scrutiny."
Secretary Yellen, however, has denied the allegation, responding, "Since the beginning of this Administration, Treasury has made SARs available in response to authorized committee requests and continues to engage on the process with any individual members seeking information."
Comer quickly responded, "It is troubling that the Biden Administration is willing to provide a false story to the media to create the appearance of transparency while continuing to thwart congressional oversight."
This all changes in five months when the GOP takes back the House.
Democrats better dig in because the hammer is going to fall.
