If leftists in congress thought that ignoring the supreme corruption that occurred in the Obama administration and trying to blame President Trump using fabricated articles of impeachment for something a democrat actually bragged about doing (quid pro quo) would make Joe Biden’s actions disappear, they thought wrong.
Lindsey Graham unveiled on Sunday that the Senate will hopefully conduct its own investigation concerning Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma Holdings, as well as the FBI’s unlawful surveillance of President Trump’s campaign advisor Carter Page using the FISA Court.
Speaking on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Features,” Graham unveiled that the Senate was “going to get to the bottom of this,” and explained his witness wish list.
In the interview, Graham urged GOP Idaho Sen. Jim Risch, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, to call the chief of staff to former Secretary of State John Kerry to testify about concerns he reportedly raised about Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian energy company where Biden served as a director.
Biden joined the firm in 2014, shortly after his father took over as the Obama administration’s main liaison to Ukraine following the overthrow of its pro-Russia president, Viktor Yanukovych.
Republicans have questioned whether Joe Biden, as vice president in 2016, improperly pressured the Ukrainian government to shut down an investigation into Burisma. [This, of course, is because the aging aristocratic democrat bragged about having the prosecutor fired, after vowing to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loans.]
Joe Biden and Democrats have accused Republicans of using the Burisma issue to distract from impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Democrats allege that Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open investigations into the Bidens in exchange for military assistance.
[Many experts argue that the bogus charges have no teeth anyway since Joe Biden is not now, nor was, the president’s political opponent.]
The Senate is poised this coming week to vote to acquit Trump on two articles of impeachment related to his actions toward Ukraine.
Graham said he also wants to hear from Kerry’s stepson, Christopher Heinz, who was a business partner of Hunter Biden. State Department emails show that Heinz contacted officials at Foggy Bottom on May 13, 2014 to raise red flags about Hunter Biden’s relationship with Burisma, which has been investigated for corruption.
The South Carolina senator also wants to hear from George Kent, a State Department official who testified in the Trump impeachment hearings that he raised concerns about Burisma in 2016.
Graham said that Republicans will “eventually get to Hunter Biden” after the first round of witnesses are called. He also said that he “can prove beyond any doubt” that Joe Biden’s efforts to root out corruption in Ukraine were undermined by Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board.
“We’re not going to give him a pass on that,” said Graham.
Many people hope that an investigation will occur.
