Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) says that he plans to release the Senate Homeland Security Committee’s report on Hunter Biden’s suspicious activities sometime in the summer of this year, as reported by Politico.
Johnson said that the report was intended to be released earlier, but the onset of the coronavirus pandemic has “hampered” the committee’s investigation. Johnson said that “we’re in the process of writing different sections of the report that I’d like to make public sometime this summer.”
Committee staffers have been analyzing documents from the State Department and the National Archives, focusing on Hunter Biden’s suspicious business dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings, where he was appointed to serve on the board of directors, allegedly due to his father’s status as vice president at the time.
The elder Biden subsequently admitted that he used the power of his office to force the Ukrainian government to fire its Prosecutor General, Viktor Shokin, because he was investigating possible corruption by Burisma, which included Hunter. This corruption has been at the center of Biden’s campaign for president in the 2020 election, and the Democrats tried to impeach President Donald Trump for his efforts to investigate this corruption last year.
Johnson also spoke about how the allegations matter in the context of Biden becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, saying that “there are questions that Joe Biden has not adequately answered. And if I were a Democrat primary voter, I’d want these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote.”
