Senate Begins Issuing Subpoenas in Burisma-Biden Investigation

Hunter and Joe Biden

W

ith the impeachment probe behind them, the Senate can now focus on what was actually the issue at the heart of the Ukraine matter: the Bidens. Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) “is preparing to issue the panel’s first subpoena as part of an investigation into Burisma Holdings” he wrote in a letter to Senator Gary Peters (D-MI). Burisma Holdings is the Ukrainian energy company which presidential hopeful Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has been linked to.

 
Senator Johnson plans to subpoena Andrii Telizhenko, a former consultant for the company Blue Star Strategies which Burisma hired to combat the corruption allegations against them. Senator Johnson said although Telizhenko has provided some documents, the subpoena is necessary to get the documents that are protected by a non-disclosure agreement.

As for Hunter Biden, who undoubtedly was able to leverage his father’s vice presidency to get a high-paying job with Burisma, is believed to be the link between Burisma and Blue Star Strategies. According to the Daily Caller, “Biden served on the board of the Truman National Security Project, a liberal national security think tank, with Sally Painter, one of Blue Star’s co-founders.”

Blue Star sought to leverage Hunter Biden’s role as a board member of Burisma to gain access to, and potentially influence matters at, the State Department

Senator Johnson’s letter addresses the importance of the linked companies: “As part of the Committee’s ongoing investigation, it has received U.S. government records indicating that Blue Star sought to leverage Hunter Biden’s role as a board member of Burisma to gain access to, and potentially influence matters at, the State Department.”

In 2016, Painter and her Blue Star co-founder “reached out to top State Department officials” and “set up meetings to discuss Ukraine and Burisma” according to State Department records. The web of Biden buddies was quite tangled. “In an email on June 27, 2016, Painter indicated that she spoke with Tony Blinken, who served as deputy secretary of state, at a Truman National Security Project event about ‘troubling events’ in Ukraine” reported the Daily Caller.

Painter then requested a follow-up meeting with Blinken. Blinken is the current foreign policy adviser for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. Sally Painter’s Blue Star co-founder, Karen Tramontano, was not only deputy chief of staff in the Clinton White House but “also contacted State Department officials seeking a meeting regarding Burisma on Feb. 24, 2016.”

While Blue Star gave some documentation to the Senate, Senator Johnson’s letter said, “The Committee notified Blue Star that we consider their response to be incomplete, but they responded that they will not be producing any more documents.”

  6. The China Communists have been given economic advantage over the rest of the world, and now we are paying the price. Globalization doesn’t work. OBAMA PUBLICLY stated he believed we could convince A COMMUNIST DICTATORSHIP to become democratic by giving them money! We didn’t do that with USSR and they collapsed because their system didn’t work. The China Communists took our money and laughed at us! I have been in countless factories in China, I know the truth. It is illegal to treat workers the way they are treated in China. 80% of our Pharmaceuticals now are made in China! The EPA has tried to force steel, grey iron castings, and other war materials out of the US. The elitist “left coasts” ship their trash to China, who promptly dump it in the ocean! To punish the US China quit accepting our trash now! Nothing in our pro-Chinese Communist Press! The greedy US CEOs crippled us as a country as their salaries increased 300% since 2014! We are fighting back with Trump in office, while unelected bureaucrats in league with corrupt Dem politicians block everything. Clinton told her supporters to “resist.” Our country comes first, not politics or money! Her husband had 7 charges when he was impeached! Not two non-existent charges! Our CEOs are slowly changing under Trump but we still need to clean up the FBI/DOJ/CIA, the DOJ is not being aggressive enough about prosecuting the obvious political bias in these agencies. The WHO has adopted an anti-Taiwan policy even though they have the best record at handling SARs and this virus! The WHO will not even Don’t believe China’s lies! They will now come up with a cure and attempt to blackmail the world! THE WHO MUST ALLOW TAIWAN TO ATTEND MEETINGS! TAIWAN IS AN INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY, I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR 25 YEARS! BELIEVE THE TRUTH! MORE PEOPLE WILL DIE FROM THE COMMON FLUE THAN THE WUHAN VIRUS! IN WAS CREATED IN A MILITARY LAB IN WUHAN!

  7. The WHO will not even LET TAIWAN ATTEND MEETINGS! CHINA IS NOT HELPING TAIWAN, THEY KEEP TRYING TO INFECT US. SEAL THE BORDERS, NO EXCEPTIONS FOR CELEBRITIES, DEM SENATORS (WHO SHOULD BE INDICTED FOR COLLABORATION WITH THE ENEMY IN IRAN) OR CRUISE SHIP PASSENGERS.Don’t believe China’s lies! They will now come up with a cure and attempt to blackmail the world! THE WHO MUST ALLOW TAIWAN TO ATTEND MEETINGS! TAIWAN IS AN INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY, I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR 25 YEARS!

  9. Hunter is technically right China did not give “him” $1.5 billion dollars personally but they did give him and his partners over $1 billion dollars this is public information. The propaganda machine aka the main stream media new what to ask and how to ask it. Hunter was also told what the questions were before he was asked them. Lets go back to the Ukraine were after he was dishonorably discharged he did get a job on the board of a company he had zero experience in. He was also paid more money than the people on the board that new what they were doing. Hunter also admitted he would never got the job if his last name wasn’t Biden. To the trolls even you have to admit that a guy who was just thrown out of the military for cocaine drug use after less than 3 weeks for a position he was never qualified for either. Go ahead google it never in history have they let someone who was to old for this job have this job. There was a person who did not get this job because his father pulled strings and got him in. Don’t feel to bad they ended up with the job they just had to wait 3 weeks longer to get it. Trolls back to you I am sure you know a bunch of people who were dishonorably discharge getting six figure jobs for something they have zero experience in it right ? I own a business and have work for several others and anyone I ever hired anyone who did not bring something to the table. Be it strength for the warehouse or a degree in the business I was in. The ONLY thing Hunter brought to the table was access to his father and say what you want they bought the vice president real cheap. The legal fees and possible civil suits their company was facing would have cost 10x what they paid Hunter. Joe lied and said he did not know his son was under investigation except the Ny Times said they asked him for and interview on this very thing. His staff also said they spoke to this to him and Obamas own staff talked to him about this very same thing. Joe said he never met any of the people at the company until picture came out with him playing golf with several of them. Still think none of this stinks one person wrote here this is why Obama did not endorse him I think this was one of many reasons he did not endorse him. On that note no two term president in the history of the country has ever not endorsed his vice president. again google it. Okay Trolls I will give you one thing if this makes you feel better I know Joe did all these things and is guilty but as of late watching him try to talk he might actually believe he didn’t because he can’t remember he sure looks like a guy suffering from dementia. Hope that helps that your candidate can’t tell his wife from his sister or what state he is in or who is interviewing him etc..
