United States Representative Robert Garcia (D-California) tore into Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) at a House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday after Greene displayed explicit images of President Joe Biden's son Hunter engaged in sexual acts.

Although Biden was indicted federal tax evasion, the stunt was the GOP's latest gambit in their as-yet evidenceless pursuit of the First Family, all of whom they have accused of corruption.

"'Before we begin, I would like to let the Committee and everyone watching at home [know] that parental discretion is advised,' Greene said before attempting to smear Biden as a sex trafficker," noted Raw Story.

While questioning Internal Revenue Service whistelblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler, Garcia recalled that Republicans have failed to pony up the dough on the Bidens, into whom probes commenced under the admininstration of former President Donald Trump.

"So let's first zero in on the bottom line. What we have is two IRS investigators who clearly worked very hard on the Hunter Biden investigation. And thank you both for being here today," Garcia began.

"You both gave recommendations to prosecutors based on your work, which you've described today," Garcia continued. "And then Donald Trump's handpicked prosecutor then made recommendations to charge Hunter. He acted independently and he himself has confirmed this. You did your job making recommendations, and then the prosecutor did his job. You don't have to agree with his conclusions, but that's the bottom line of what we have today at this hearing. But today's hearing is like most of the majorities investigations and hearings — a lot of allegations, zero proof, no receipts, but apparently some d*ck pics."
