House Republicans' inquiry focuses on if the president benefited from his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings . Republicans have not put forth evidence showing that Biden directly benefited from his son’s business dealings.
Crockett, a Democrat from Texas, was quick to point out the lack of evidence, and slammed conservatives for their misplaced priorities. She showed the chamber two photos of classified material found in the raid of former president Donald Trump’s Mar-A-Lago residence, noting that when there is real evidence of a crime, Republicans "want to act like they're blind."
“These are our national secrets, looks like in the shitter to me,” Crockett said, before holding up the next photo. “This looks like more evidence of our national secrets on a stage at Mar-A-Lago."
Crockett then went on to lay out the 91 counts that are currently pending against Trump as an example of “someone who has committed high crimes.” She argued that the only thing that Biden is guilty of is being a parent.

“I will tell you what the President has been guilty of, he has unfortunately been guilty of loving his child unconditionally and that is the only evidence that they have brought forward,” Crockett continued. “I hope and pray that my parents love me half as much as he loves his child."
The representative then addressed the looming government shutdown , which will occur in just days if legislatures cannot come to an agreement on funding. Republican infighting has been a factor cited as delaying an agreement.
"Until they find some evidence we need to get back to the peoples’ work which means keeping this government open so that people don’t go hungry in the streets of the United States," Crockett said.
