Joe Biden basked in the glow of his string of victories in the Democrat Presidential primary.
But the celebration was short-lived.
That’s because Joe Biden knew his campaign was over when this investigation went public.
On February 24, Homeland Security Committee Chairman Wisconsin Republican Senator Ron Johnson released a letter announcing his intention to subpoena former Ukrainian diplomat Andrii Telizhenko who worked for the consulting firm Blue Star Strategies for documents regarding the firm’s communications with the State Department about Burisma – the shady Ukrainian energy company paying Hunter Biden one million dollars a year to sit on its board of directors.
Johnson told the press this investigation could clear up any dark clouds of corruption hanging over the Biden campaign over his questionable dealings with Ukraine when Biden served as Obama’s Vice President.
The Wisconsin Republican told the press his committee would produce a report in a month or two on the initial findings into corruption allegations surrounding Burisma and Hunter Biden.
“These are questions that Joe Biden has not adequately answered,” Johnson told reporters. “And if I were a Democrat primary voter, I’d want these questions satisfactorily answered before I cast my final vote.”
Johnson also shot down the fake news media lies that his investigation was a politically motivated witch hunt.
“My investigations are not focused on the Bidens. They’re just not. But I can’t ignore them because they’re part of the story. They made themselves part of the story,” Johnson added. “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.”
In fact, Johnson’s letter announcing his intention to subpoena records related to Blue Star and Burisma was dated on February 24 which was during the period where Bernie Sanders was considered the odds-on favorite for the nomination and days before Biden’s win in South Carolina and subsequent surge.
Johnson and the Homeland Security Committee recognized there were serious allegations of corruption involving Biden, the Obama administration and Burisma.
In a December 4 letter, Johnson and Iowa Senator and Judiciary Committee member Chuck Grassley listed two.
Grassley and Johnson wrote:
A recent report indicates that, in November or December 2015, Blue Star officials met with Amos Hochstein, then-senior advisor to Vice President Biden on international energy affairs, and invoked Hunter Biden during a discussion of Burisma. The report describes Mr. Hochstein as ‘a vocal proponent of Ukraine cracking down on Burisma,’ and explained that the purpose of the meeting was for ‘Blue Star Strategies  to convince Hochstein (but [it] did not) that Burisma was on the level and did not warrant further investigation…
… Additionally, in a February 24, 2016 email recently released through a Freedom of Information Act request, a State Department official wrote that “Karen Tramontano of Blue Star Strategies requested a meeting to discuss with [Under Secretary] Novelli [U.S. Government] remarks alleging Burisma (Ukrainian energy company) of corruption. She noted that two high profile U.S. citizens are affiliated with the company (including Hunter Biden as a board member). Tramontano would like to talk with U/S Novelli about getting a better understanding of how the U.S. came to the determination that the company is corrupt. According to Tramontano, there is no evidence of corruption, has been no hearing or process, and evidence to the contrary has not been considered.”
If Joe Biden wins the Democrat Party nomination he will have to answer for these allegations of corruption.
Biden and his campaign team can only hide behind the fake news media lies about how Donald Trump and the Republican Party are promoting “conspiracy theories” and “Russian disinformation” for so long.
Donald Trump will make this an issue and witnesses will have to answer questions under oath.
At that point in time, Biden will be held to account.
