After a recent bombshell report alleging improper conduct from Joe Biden as a result of Hunter Biden’s involvement with Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Senator Ron Johnson is calling for the FBI to investigate whether the suspicious meetings actually took place.
“I think it’s pretty odd that quite honestly the Biden campaign all they’ve done to deny this is to say that the meeting one of these e-mails revealed that Vice President Biden had with the number three in control of Burisma never showed up on his official calendar,” said Sen. Johnson in a recent interview. “There’s all kinds of meetings that didn’t show up on his official calendar. This wouldn’t surprise me if this one didn’t. The first thing after we got contacted by the whistleblower the day after we issued our report on Ukraine was, you know, we contact the FBI and determine is this story true? Can you verify any of this? And took a couple of days to basically give us no information.”
Johnson went on to say the FBI has a “duty to inform” if they believe the information was “Russian disinformation:”
The FBI has a duty to inform us if they believe this was maybe Russia disinformation, they should give us a defensive briefing and tell us about that and if, for example, they also believe that what information this whistleblower gave us is fraudulent that would also be a crime and FBI should tell us that. So we’re trying to assess out of the FBI what do they know and when did they know it, but the larger question really is, if they had this information, and these are genuine e-mails, and it would probably reveal all kinds of things that would have been very relevant to the impeachment case why did they sit on it? Are they covering up just because Hunter Biden might be engaged in things that also maybe should have been investigated and possibly prosecuted? Do we have two systems of justice, one for Democrats and one for Republicans one for the well-connected versus one for the rest of the Americans that’s really the larger issue here at play?
