Speaking to Fox Business, Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin suggested investigations into Hunter Biden should have been communicated with Congress, particularly while Congress was considering the impeachment of a sitting US President.
“I’m sympathetic for keeping investigations confidential unless there’s an indictment. But when you’re talking about investigations within the political realm, particularly one that would have affected the impeachment trial of the sitting U.S. president in the U.S. Senate, that should have been relevant information, the fact that they had Hunter Biden’s computer that had all these emails back in December 2019.”
These statements follow a Wall Street Journal story that alleges Barr knew about the Hunter Biden investigation was occurring months before impeachment proceedings.
Johnson added, “When I met with the attorney general, it was really talking about the corrupt FBI investigation relating to the Russian hoax, so I don’t believe I ever really talked about our investigations of Hunter Biden, which by the way—we never targeted the Bidens,”
