Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, invited former independent counsel Ken Starr and other attorneys in key battleground states to testify at a controversial hearing next week where Johnson plans to probe alleged election fraud in the 2020 Presidential election.
“Social media interference in this election is far greater than anything the Russians could have done in 2016,” Johnson told Bartiromo on Sunday.
The hearing next week is seen as controversial because most of Washington DC, including the media, have agreed that President Donald J. Trump and his 74 Million legal voters do not have any legal standing to examine and question the results of the general election held in November.
CNN bitterly reported, “The hearing, which has prompted sharp criticism from senators in both parties over concerns that Johnson is peddling in debunked conspiracy theories, is moving ahead despite calls from Democrats that he scrap it.”
Without CNN and the other Democrat/Media allies approving, Johnson may be motivated by numerous considerations when scrutinizing the election results. One of them may be a criminal intent to collude with a foreign and hostile country in very lucrative and illegal business deals.
CBS News reporter, Catherine Herridge posted on Twitter an update to a request for the brother and son of Democrat Joe Biden to cooperate with a Senate hearing, bypassing the people’s opportunity to question their concerning forgein business deals.
The letter Herridge posted was the only response Johnson says he received after numerous attempts to interview Biden.
According to a press release from Johnson:
“On June 4, 2020, the Senate committee I chair granted me the authority to issue subpoenas for records and testimony to certain agencies and individuals relating to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane investigation, the “unmasking” of U.S. persons affiliated with the Trump campaign, and allegations of the political corruption of US agencies. Two months later, after patiently trying to work with these agencies and individuals on a voluntary basis, I have decided to begin issuing subpoenas primarily because of my strong belief that transparency in government is essential and that the American people have waited too long for the truth. Also, because Democrats have initiated a coordinated disinformation campaign and effort to personally attack Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and me for the purpose of marginalizing the findings of our investigations, I think it is important for me to layout the history, purpose, and goals of our ongoing oversight.
A Senate resolution tasks my committee with investigating, among other issues, “the possible existence of … corruption or unethical practices … [and] conflicts of interest[.]” Our current investigations fall well within this authority and have focused on two primary areas: first, allegations of conflicts of interest within the Obama administration related to Ukraine policy and, second, allegations of corruption within the Obama administration affecting the 2016 election, the transition between administrations, and Obama administration holdovers’ sabotage of the Trump administration.
My committee began investigating corruption in the Obama administration in March 2015 when it was revealed that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was violating State Department policy, and possibly section 793(f) of the criminal code, by her extensive use of a private e-mail server for official and classified government business. We quickly uncovered information about how Secretary Clinton’s private e-mail server was stored. Based on documents from the company hired to manage her server, we discovered that the method for storing and maintaining the server raised numerous concerns regarding security and preservation of records” (Full Press Release here)
Johnson has been investigating Hunter for a year and told Bartiromo, ” We have only gotten the one response not to co-operate, and we have asked numerous times. Why are they hiding in the weeds?” Johnson asked.
“Biden lied to the American people about what he knew about Hunter’s engagements with China, and we know there is a letter to a landlord from Hunter to a landlord where he had an office in a building that was leased to a Chinese business. Biden has not been honest about that business and his ties with the Chinese Communist Party and their People’s Liberation Army. James and Joe Biden have been involving with those people. This is a big mess, and it will be a bigger mess if Biden becomes President, and that looks like the direction we are going right now,” Johnson said.
“We saw a list of wire transfers that are dealing with Hunter Biden during the impeachment when we were investigating the Ukraine we saw them. We didn’t target Hunter,” Johnson said.
“We have a large part of the American population who do not believe the election was legal. There are things that are unexplained; the people deserve answers,” Johnson about his hearing expected on Wednesday.
