Senators Grassley and Johnson Open Investigation into Hunter Biden Corruption

Feb. 6, 2020 (EIRNS)—Wasting no time following the end of the impeachment farce, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson of Wisconsin released a letter they sent to the director of the Secret Service requesting Hunter Biden’s travel records during the time when his father was Vice President. Grassley and Johnson were also informed this week by the National Archives that their request last November for all documents pertaining to Obama Administration contacts with Ukraine in 2016 had turned up thousands of documents, which will be vetted and then turned over.

The letter written yesterday to Secret Service Director James Murray reads: “We write to request information about whether Hunter Biden used government-sponsored travel to help conduct private business.” It states:

“1. Please describe the protective detail that Hunter Biden received while his father was Vice President.

“2. Please provide a list of all dates and locations of travel, international and domestic, for Hunter Biden while he received a protective detail. In your response, please note whether his travel was on Air Force One or Two, or other government aircraft, as applicable and whether additional family members were present for each trip.”

The letter says that their committees are “reviewing potential conflicts of interest posed by the business activities of Hunter Biden and his associates during the Obama administration, particularly with respect to his business activities in Ukraine and China.”
