🚨 POLL: Should the Senate Investigate Hunter Biden-Burisma?
🚨 POLL: Should the Senate Investigate Hunter Biden-Burisma? 👇
The Governmental Affairs Committee and Senate Homeland Security voted to authorize a subpoena related into the GOP investigation into Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings, according to Breitbart News.
Ron Johnson, the Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman, opened a vote to subpoena Blue Star Strategies, which has been accused of trying to influence State Department policies.
The consulting firm worked directly with the Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate Burisma Holdings, while Hunter Biden was still on the board.
The vote was scheduled to take place sometime last week but was postponed “out of an abundance of caution, and to allow time for [committee members] to receive additional briefings.”
Utah Senator Mitt Romney originally resisted the idea, he ultimately joined hid fellow committee members for a unanimous vote in favor of the subpoena.
Blue Star Strategies CEO Karen Tramontano sent a letter to Johnson before the vote, noting that the firm has already provided requested documents related to “meetings with the U.S. government regarding Burisma.”
“At every opportunity we have indicated to the committee that it is our intention to cooperate. At no time have we ever stated or indicated in any way that we would not cooperate,” Tramontano wrote. “Therefore, we are puzzled, despite our willingness to cooperate, why the committee is proceeding to vote on a subpoena.”
Johnson said, “This subpoena furthers the committee’s work to address the many unanswered questions about this effort and potential conflicts of interest,” Johnson spokesman Austin Altenburg said. “It is unclear why anyone would want to help Blue Star Strategies continue to hide what happened here.”
Both Hunter Biden and his father, the presumptive Democratic nominee have been accused of shady and questionable deals with Burisma Holdings and deliberate manipulation of foreign policy for profit.

Back in 2014, Joe Biden appointed his own son, Hunter, to Burisma’s board of directors.
Hunter was paid $83,000 per month to serve on the board, despite his lack of expertise in the oil and gas industry.
President Donald Trump has promised to see it through.
“That will be a major issue in the campaign. I will bring that up all the time because I don’t see any way out. I don’t see any way for them — I don’t see how they can answer those questions. And maybe they can. I hope they can,” the president told host Sean Hannity. “I’d actually prefer it that they can. But I don’t believe they’ll be able to answer those questions. That was purely corrupt.”

On Tuesday, California Senator Kamala Harris called out Republican lawmakers for neglecting pandemic business in favor of pursuing the investigation:
Rather than prioritize providing important oversight that will protect Americans from the unprecedented threat posed by this pandemic, you have continued to pursue partisan political matters – such as the markup scheduled for this Wednesday on the issuance of a subpoena – that do nothing to help the millions of constituents that we serve. This is a clear abdication of responsibility.

The board appointment coincided with the elder Biden serving as the Obama administration’s point person for Ukraine, and as Burisma’s chief executive officer stood accused of money laundering.
