The Democrats are doing their damnedest to continue throttling the scope of their impeachment “inquiry”, and it’s getting on the last nerves of those seeking transparency and, ultimately, the truth.
What the left wants is to railroad this entire pedantic process into the idea that Donald Trump attempted to extort Ukraine into announcing an investigation into Joe Biden’s son Hunter, and/or the Crowdstrike server story from the 2016 election. This would, of course, he politically advantageous for the Commander in Chief, should he have to face Joe Biden at the 2020 ballot box.
But, there other side of that coin is an ugly one for the Dems.
The more the nation digs around regarding the Bidens themselves, the farther ol’ Joe slips in the polls. That’s why House Intel Committee Chair Adam Schiff has made any talk of calling Hunter Biden as a witness strictly verboten.
GOP Senator Ron Johnson just won’t stand for that, however.
During an interview with WSAU’s “Feedback with Ben Armstrong” released on Thursday, Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) stated that once he gets the information that he needs, he will, if necessary, subpoena the Bidens, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA), and the whistleblower.
Host Ben Armstrong asked Johnson if he is going to subpoena the Bidens, Schiff, or the whistleblower.
Johnson responded, “I don’t really want to make news on your program. Because I’m working with Senator Grassley’s staff, but we’re having meetings in terms of what our next steps are along this line. … I’m not going to get out ahead of my skis here when I’m trying to work with another United States senator that I deeply respect. … In order to bring in witnesses for questioning, you want to lay the groundwork, you want to have enough information.”
Armstrong later asked, “So, can you say this: You — once you get that information, you would, if it — if you get the information, subpoena the Bidens, Schiff, and the whistleblower?”
Johnson answered, “That would be — the subpoena’s the last step in the process. You go through a multiple-step process, asking people to come in for interviews, possibly for depositions. If they refuse that, the final point is going to be subpoenaing.”
Armstrong then asked, “And you will do that?”
Johnson stated, “I’ll certainly attempt it. But I’m not sure I’m going to necessarily succeed. Because I actually have to have unanimous support [from] members of my committee to do that.”
There’s no telling whether or not Johnson could feasibly or legislatively justify the subpoenaing of Biden, Schiff, or the anonymous whistleblower, but any attempt to do so would likely result in yet another delay in our Democratic Congresspeople getting back to work.
