Dems Attack GOP Senator to Stop Probes of Obama-Gate, Hunter Biden

'Congress appears to be the target of a concerted foreign interference campaign, which seeks to launder and amplify disinformation...'

Democrats are stepping up their attacks against Senate GOP investigations into presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter, as well as other Obama administration officials involved in the Obama-Gate hoax to entrap Trump advisers with claims of Russia collusion.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, chaired by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., authorized a series of subpoenas in June to investigate whether Joe Biden used his position as vice president to get rid of a corruption investigation into Hunter Biden’s financial dealings, and whether key Obama administration officials deliberately targeted members of the Trump administration in an effort to derail his presidency.

To stop Johnson, the Biden campaign, joined by Democratic operatives, has begun attacking Johnson’s credibility.

“He’s spending his time on partisan investigations instead of actually doing the people’s business. … This type of conduct is unacceptable and needs to be called out,” Kyle Herrig, executive director of the Congressional Integrity Project, told reporters on Monday, according to The Hill.

Johnson, however, said he will not back down and defended himself against the accusation that this is a partisan investigation. 

“Other people talk about this being centered on Joe and Hunter Biden. It’s not. We’re taking a look at the corruption of the transition process, and we’re taking a look at those conflicts of interest and how that might have affected, for example, policies coming out of the State Department,” Johnson told WISN, a Wisconsin TV station, on Sunday.

But congressional Democrats vowed to prevent Johnson from seeing this investigation through, accusing him of deliberately spreading Russian disinformation that could sway the 2020 presidential election.

“We are gravely concerned, in particular, that Congress appears to be the target of a concerted foreign interference campaign, which seeks to launder and amplify disinformation in order to influence congressional activity, public debate, and the presidential election in November,” they wrote in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray last month.

Johnson dismissed the Democrats’ accusation and stressed that any information his committee receives is thoroughly and properly vetted.

“Before we ever use it, we verify and make sure that it’s accurate and true before we’d ever publish anything,” he said.

Johnson said he plans to submit another round of subpoenas and release an interim report by mid-September.
