The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted Wednesday to authorize Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) to issue subpoenas to Blue Star Strategies in connection with an investigation into Hunter Biden’s dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

The investigation into the presumptive Democratic nominee’s son came about as the result of the Democrats’ attempt to impeach President Donald Trump. The Democratic investigation conducted by the House along party lines sought to remove the president from office on the basis that he allegedly pressured the Ukrainian government into investigating Hunter Biden.

During the course of that investigation, it was revealed that former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter had been paid a $50,000 a month salary by Burisma despite having no obvious expertise in the natural gas industry.

Since the impeachment investigation, Republicans in the Senate have sought to investigate whether Blue Star Strategies, a public relations firm retained by Burisma, sought to leverage Hunter Biden’s position on Burisma’s board to influence policymakers in the Obama State Department.

Democrats have condemned the investigation as a partisan gimmick and all Democrats on the committee voted against authorizing the subpoena, which seeks documents and a deposition from Blue Star Strategies CEO Karen Tramontano.

According to Politico, Johnson responded to Democratic objections by asking, “What is everybody worried about? If there’s nothing there, we’ll find out there’s nothing there. But if there’s something there, the American people need to know that.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden has denied any wrongdoing by himself or his son Hunter in connection with Burisma.

    I daily check my email and look at the CF posts. The only thing I can say about the CF post is redundant, redundant, redundant. The same breaking news and the same hot topic pictures week after week. However, the articles are less disturbing then the CNN or ABC news which are also redundant, redundant, redundant. I can not believe I misspelled redundant twice while typing this. However I am 76 years old and a 100% PTSD disabled Vietnam Veteran. That is my excuse and I challenge CF, CNN, and ABC to do better in the future, if there is one!!!

    Dad Biden will use the senility defence and he will throw Hunter Biden under the biggest bus he can find. And drive it himself, backing over Hunter several times.
