Sen. Ron Johnson Gives FBI Director Deadline To Come Clean About Hunter Biden [Video]
This Wisconsin Republican says it's time for the FBI to put-up or shut-up. Ron Johnson is the chair of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. He detailed a letter he sent FBI Director Christopher Wray in which he gave the FBI a deadline to come clean about the intel they have on Hunter Biden. Johnson's letter demands that the FBI either confirm or deny having evidence against former vice president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden.
"The FBI has a duty to inform us. If they believe this was maybe Russian disinformation, they should give us a defensive briefing,” Johnson told “Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures.” “If, for example, they also believe that what information this whistleblower gave us is fraudulent, that would also be a crime, and FBI should tell us that.”
Johnson is chair of the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs.
Johnson said his questions about what the FBI knew about Hunter Biden and when they knew it speaks to a “larger issue.”
“Why did they sit on it? Are they covering up just because Hunter Biden might be engaged in things that also maybe should have been investigated and possibly prosecuted? Do we have two systems of justice: one for Democrats and one for Republicans? One for the well-connected versus one for the rest of the Americans?” he asked.
Johnson added that he found the Biden campaign’s response to claims that alleged Hunter Biden’s emails show his father met with a Burisma executive “pretty odd.”
“The Biden campaign, all they've done to refute or deny any of this is to say that the meeting one of these emails revealed that Vice President Biden had with the No. 3 in control of Burisma never showed up on his official calendar,” Johnson said. “There's all kinds of meetings that didn't show up on his official calendar. This wouldn't surprise me if this one didn't.”
"I have a responsibility to validate and verify the contents of any information produced to my committee," Johnson said in his letter. "The committee must know if it receives information that could be fraudulent or not accurate."
"For these reasons, the committee must know whether the FBI has assessed the validity of materials the whistleblower has provided, and what, if any, actions the FBI has taken since obtaining this information," Johnson continued.
Johnson says his letter demands a response from the FBI by October 22nd.
