Republican Sen. Ron Johnson is considering subpoenas to get testimony regarding his probe into the connection between the Ukraine gas company Burisma and Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Johnson, chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, is considering subpoenas for current and former Joe Biden advisers because they won’t comply with his request for them to give voluntary depositions, as reported by Politico.
Republicans’ focus on Biden and his son has intensified as Election Day 2020 is now about 100 days away.
GOP leaders and others want to know more about the relationship between Burisma and Blue Star Strategies, a Democratic public affairs firm that did consulting work for the gas company, for which Hunter Biden was a board member.
Blue Star reportedly wanted to leverage Hunter Biden’s board membership to get a meeting at the State Department under the Obama administration, for which Joe Biden was the vice president.
