Republicans to move forward on Hunter Biden investigations regardless of who is president – By Kerry Picket (Washington Examiner) / Nov 17 2020
Senate Republicans, whose committees launched investigations into President-elect Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, say their investigations will continue regardless of who is in the White House or whether they keep the majority after two Georgia runoffs are decided.
The Senate Homeland Security Committee, led by Wisconsin Republican Ron Johnson, previously launched an investigation of Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine and opened a separate investigation into the e-mail and text exchanges found on his laptop.
Johnson told the Washington Examiner that regardless of how President Trump’s legal disputes against states that called the presidential election for Joe Biden shake out, he will continue forward with his investigation into Hunter Biden.
“Both Sen. Grassley and I are not going to turn a blind eye to this. I can’t speak for him, but certainly our staffs are continuing to work on this,” Johnson said. “We’ll continue to gather more information as it becomes available. But let’s face it, as much as I was criticized by some, at a minimum, what our investigation has done by exposing this, it’s diffused, to a certain extent, some of the counterintelligence and extortion threats.”
