The actions stem from a bombshell report published by The New York Post this week that, among other things, reveal that Biden’s son Hunter introduced an executive from Ukrainian energy company Burisma to his father in 2015. The elder Biden was the sitting U.S. Vice-President at the time.

Hunter Biden was given a seat on the board at Burisma at a reported salary of up to $50,000 a month while Joe Biden was still in office. Hunter Biden has no background or training in the energy sector.
The revelations are significant as Joe Biden as attested on numerous occasions that he has never spoken with his son about any international business dealings.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also revealed Wednesday night that Twitter administrators “essentially have me at gunpoint” and won’t allow her to access her account until she deletes a link to The Post’s report.
