Sen. Ron Johnson on Monday said the Senate Homeland Security committee, which he chairs, is poised to release a damning report on Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s dealings in Ukraine.
“Stay tuned. In about a week we’re going to learn a whole lot more of Vice President Biden’s unfitness for office,” the Wisconsin Republican said on a call with supporters, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Johnson’s committee has been investigating Hunter Biden’s employment by a Ukrainian energy company during the time his father led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.
ALSO, new documents show that Ukraine's Burisma Gas Company paid BRIBES, shortly after HUNTER BIDEN was placed on the company's board of directors.
ALSO...In 2016, Hunter's dad, then U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, told the President of Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was investigating his son's employer (Burisma Gas company), or $1 Billion in U.S. aid would be withheld. (Quid-Quo-Pro)
The Prosecutor was summarily fired in less than 6 hours...as Joe Biden proudly recounts, during this 2018 panel discussion. Here is a more in-depth news article on Joe Biden's profound admission: www.realclearpolitics.com... rosecutor.html
Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden is about to have some "secret skeletons" revealed by the U.S. Senate. That's a shame, considering he was a member of that prestigious body for decades.

It's strange that Republican Committee Member senator Mitt Romney, is so against revealing info about Hunter and Joe Biden's dealings with Ukraine and other nations.
The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted Wednesday morning to authorize subpoenas for a number of officials -- including former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr -- as part of the panel's controversial probe into Burisma, the Ukrainian oil and gas firm for which former Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, once served on the board of directors.

The member of the Ukrainian Verkhovna Rada (Ukrainian Parliament – translator’s note) Andrey Derkach made public witness testimonies and payment documents, confirming the transferring of money from the Ukrainian company Burisma Holdings in the company Rosemont Seneca Boa owned by Hunter Biden, through the front firms, on September 16 at a press conference.
At the press conference, the organizers demonstrated a video recording of the witness’s testimony, who transferred money from the accounts of Burisma Holdings to the Latvian branch of the Ukrainian PrivatBank through the front firms, which were registered under the front parties.
Republicans are preparing to release a report in a matter of days on their investigation focused on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, a move they hope will put fresh scrutiny on the Democratic nominee just weeks from the election.
The controversial probe, spearheaded by Sens. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), is focused broadly on Obama-era policy and Hunter Biden's work for Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.
The GOP report, which is set to be released this week, is expected to argue that Hunter Biden’s work impacted Obama-era Ukraine policy and created a conflict of interest given then-Vice President Joe Biden’s work in the area.
A narrative, seized on by President Trump, that Biden worked to oust Ukrainian Prosecutor Viktor Shokin to protect his son has been widely discredited, though Hunter Biden has said joining the board was “poor judgement.”
“I think it’s time for the American people to see what we’ve got,” said Johnson, who chairs the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.
Though he’s argued for months that his probe isn’t being driven by the 2020 election, Johnson has teased the forthcoming findings as damaging to Biden’s political prospects and placed it in the context of the rapidly approaching November election.
"What our investigations are uncovering, I think, will reveal this is not somebody we should be electing president of the United States," Johnson said in an interview with local Wisconsin radio station WCLO.

The Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees on Wednesday released an interim report on their monthslong joint investigation into Hunter Biden’s role on the board of Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings and his alleged “extensive and complex financial transactions.”
Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., and Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said their investigation has “faced many obstacles” from Democrats on their committees, and that executive agencies “failed to comply with document requests.”
The chairmen added that “there remains much work to be done” in their probe.
Hunter Biden is the son of the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. His work background played a starring role in the Trump impeachment efforts earlier this year. He and his father have denied any wrongdoing related to his work.
The 87-page report stated that Obama administration officials “knew” that Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma was “problematic” and that it interfered “in the efficient execution of policy with respect to Ukraine.”
“This investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch,” the report’s executive summary stated.
Sen. Rand Paul said he will send the report on the GOP-led investigation into Joe and Hunter Biden to the Justice Department on Thursday.
"I think the only way to determine the actual legality of this is to have it referred to the Department of Justice, so I'm going to send the report over," Paul told Fox News host Martha MacCallum on Wednesday. "I don't know if the whole committee will vote for it, but I'm sending the report tomorrow to the Department of Justice, and we're asking for a criminal referral."
The Kentucky Republican's announcement came after the release of a report regarding a monthslong investigation into the business dealings of Hunter Biden, who was employed on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings at the same time his father was serving as the U.S. vice president.
The 87-page report characterized Biden's lucrative role at the firm as "problematic," but found no evidence that U.S. policy was influenced by it.
“The Senate investigation’s explosive new revelations about the Biden family profiting from Russia, China and other foreign sources while Joe Biden was vice president amount to stunning levels of corruption and breathtaking breaches of America’s national security.
While Biden was vice president, his son Hunter received a $3.5 million wire transfer from the billionaire wife of the former mayor of Moscow, individuals who are undoubtedly connected to Vladimir Putin.
Chinese nationals also lavished Hunter and other members of the Biden family with money, giving Hunter and Biden’s brother James credit cards for a $100,000 international shopping spree.
But the mysterious $142,300 wire transfer from a Kazakhstan businessman through a Latvian bank and a company in Singapore has to take the cake!
These bombshells are in addition to new information regarding Hunter’s sweetheart gig on the board of a corrupt Ukrainian gas company that bribed a Ukrainian prosecutor.
“Page 17 of this report reveals that Joe Biden flat out lied when he said he had never spoken with Hunter about his foreign business dealings. After a State Department official raised concerns with Vice President Biden about it in the West Wing of the White House, Biden spoke with Hunter about it and Hunter contacted the official.
“For what possible reason could all of these foreign countries and entities be shoveling money at people named Biden, if not to influence official U.S. policy?
American journalists have a responsibility to relentlessly question Joe Biden about all of this, in detail, and to call out his attempts to cover up this potentially criminal activity.
Regardless of whether Biden is forced to face the music, this is further evidence that if Joe Biden wins, China and many other foreign interests with a financial stake in the Biden family win too.”
