A probe by the GOP into Hunter Biden and the Ukrainian gas company Burisma is picking up speed on Capitol Hill as former Vice President Joe Biden gains new momentum in the 2020 Democratic primary.
Even as votes were still being tallied from Super Tuesday races, an investigation, spearheaded by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), was drawing criticism from Democrats.
Republicans argue that it isn’t political and is broader than just Ukraine. But the effort threatens to put the former vice president back in the hot seat at a time when his campaign is on the rebound.
Johnson, who chairs the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said, “We’re proceeding down this path.”
Johnson also said Wednesday. “If there’s wrongdoing, the American people need to know it. If there is no wrongdoing or nothing significant, the American people need to understand that as well.”
