Skip to comments.Senate panel approves subpoena in Biden-related probe as GOP ramps up investigations
Posted on 05/20/2020 9:37:51 AM PDT by RandFan
A Senate committee voted along party lines Wednesday to issue a subpoena as part of the Republican-led investigation into the Ukrainian energy firm that hired former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden.
The subpoena is one of several steps Senate Republicans are taking to ramp up probes related to the Obama administration and Biden, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee who will likely challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 8-6 to authorize the subpoena Chairman Ron Johnson requested for Blue Star Strategies, a US public affairs firm that worked with Burisma, the Ukrainian company which hired Biden.
It's the first subpoena authorized in Johnson's investigation into Burisma and Hunter Biden that ramped up following the end of the impeachment trial. The Wisconsin Republican has received documents from the State Department and National Archives and says he expects to release a report laying out the committee's findings in the coming months.
Before the pandemic, Trump suggested he would make Ukraine a major part of a campaign against Biden, while Trump and his allies have repeatedly made unfounded and false claims alleging that Biden and his son acted corruptly in Ukraine. Burisma was a focus of last year's impeachment proceedings, as it was the company Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate in their July 2019 call.

Good, drip drip drip, the October Surprise.
yea no bias

Yeah usual stuff. I excerpted it because there was even more bias.
Shame these journalists can’t write an objective article for once.
“And have been repeatedly debunked.” They love that one too.
They would never write that if it was a Democrat investigation. In fact they would do the opposite.
There are no journalists at the networks anymore. Political operatives fronting for the DNC.
The American public sees them for who they are....
I reckon some FReepers could seriously do a better job.
I like Johnson too. He impressed me recently when he was challenged by one of the Pravda Elite and he did not back down.
I watched Rudy’s (admittedly it was kinda painful) presentation on what he discovered in the Ukraine and it is pretty convincing. They need to subpoena the Ukrainians who are willing to come and testify before congress about what occurred.
The tapes posted on Zero Hedge (released by a Ukrainian) accompanied by the new allegation from the Ukraine that they cannot account for tens (if not hundreds) of millions of dollars in US aid AND that Hunter Biden may have received 16 million dollars of US taxpayer money on behalf of Burisma AND that our former Ambassador lied before congress during impeachment would all be big stories in a sane world by themselves.
Back when the Dems launched their “investigation/impeachment” of Trump, CNN said it was the House doing it. Now that the Senate will investigate Biden, all of a sudden it’s the GOP doing the investigating...
“Good for Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc). I like him.”
Better than Lindsay Graham for sure.
Well spotted Jeff!
I will refrain from posting CNN in future I think!
Sure thing Jeremy.

I love their convoluted headlines and word twists. They measure every word.
These "reporters" have absolutely no shame. Biden is on tape. Real documents exist and are publicly available. There was zero other reason for Biden's son to be given that high paying job for which he had zero qualifications. More documents were just released about the fired ambassador implicating her as being involved with this same company.
Reality has zero influence on these reporters - narrative only, no facts.
Your right and i see this ‘unfounded’or ‘unproven’ claim about Hunter in EVERY article at every outlet (not just CNN but others as well). It’s crazy how they do this. They’re in a collective state of denial!
“unfounded and false claims”
They’ll never surrender and will fight til the very last.
Yep...... The good guys know everything and are working in concert to use it to maximum effect.
Those here who constantly whine about Republicans should start paying attention
