Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) said Congress should have been told that Hunter Biden was under investigation regarding his taxes before they talked about impeaching President Donald Trump, suggesting it might have had an impact on the situation in general.
Johnson made a statement on Sunday Morning Futures, saying “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. That was before the trial, that was part of that impeachment, we should have known that.”
Johnson continued, saying “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. That whole issue was brought forth during the impeachment. That’s when we started expanding our Ukrainian investigation to include his financial dealings, and then when we started seeing all these wire transfers that were connected to Hunter Biden.”
It remains unclear what exactly happens next in the Hunter Biden saga.
