Hunter Biden, the son of Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, is back in the crosshairs of investigators as Republican senators are requesting meetings of State Department personnel.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) are seeking interviews and documents related to the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.
Shokin was dismissed while investigating Burisma, an energy firm, that employed Hunter Biden on its board. Allegedly Shokin was investigating corruption-related to Hunter Biden and was removed after then Vice-President Joe Biden got him sacked.
