Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) announced on March 4 that in a month or two he would report on the investigation into the possible corruption in Ukraine by Hunter Biden, son of Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden, and now expectations are rising.
“If there’s wrongdoing, the American people need to understand that,” were the words of Johnson as chairman of the Senate National Security Committee, alluding to Hunter Biden’s ties to the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, according to Politico.
“These are questions that Joe Biden has not answered adequately,” Johnson said, adding, “And if I were a Democrat primary voter, I’d want these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote.”
Four months after Johnson’s announcement and with only 37 days of the Senate remaining, the countdown begins to the day when the results that have caused so much concern among U.S. citizens will be released.
Part of the facts point out that when Joe Biden was the vice president of then-President Barack Obama, he was in charge of policies on Ukraine, a period during which his son Hunter obtained a position in Burisma.
This position generated controversy because Hunter received $80,000 a month as payment and had no knowledge of Burisma’s activities or spoke the language.
Hunter later admitted that these payments were granted to him because he was the son of the vice president of the United States, which some call nepotism.
One of Joe Biden’s actions in Ukraine was the dismissal of Prosecutor General of Ukraine Viktor Shokin, who was rightly investigating Burisma Holdings for possible corruption at the time.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said about Hunter Biden and his relationship with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), “When Joe Biden was vice president, his son got a sweet $1.5 billion deal from the Bank of China.”
It cannot be overlooked that the multiple attacks committed by the CCP against the United States have made it the biggest threat to the country, according to with FBI Director Christopher Wray.
The issue of Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s controversial handling of power on the international scene was closely linked to the failed Democratic-sponsored impeachment of President Donald Trump, which adds national interest to the results of this investigation.
Presumably, the Democrats are not interested in the issue, based on the adverse comment of Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.); additionally, not all the Republican senators on the investigating committee show their support, as is the case with Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.).
The Senate Homeland Security Committee’s investigation into the Biden family is eagerly awaited, and while inquiries have been made, the date on which the results will be released has not been reported.
