Daily Caller: Senate Homeland Security chair won’t have Bobulinski testify before election
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), the Senate Homeland Security Committee chair, has said that he won’t call Tony Bobulinski, a former business partner of Hunter Biden, to testify in front of the panel before the election on November 3, The Daily Caller is reporting exclusively.
Bobulinski’s communications with the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee for president, were stored on the hard drive of the laptop purportedly belonging to Hunter that was given to a Delaware repair shop. The communications and information on that hard drive, which the New York Post obtained, were published in an exposé earlier in October.
The reasoning behind the decision was that Bobulinski’s numerous interviews on television and with Johnson himself have provided troves of information that the committee needs to verify, a Johnson spokesperson said.
“Senator Johnson has always wanted the truth to come out, and through media interviews and the troves of information Mr. Bobulinski provided to the committee, that truth is coming out day by day,” a spokesperson from the senior Wisconsin senator’s office told The Daily Caller. “Our staff is working tirelessly to continue verifying the information and using it to piece together a bigger picture about the Biden family’s significant conflicts of interest.”
This comes after Sen. Johnson said in a statement after his Friday interview with Bobulinski that he expected that Bobulinski would soon testify before the committee.
“I appreciate that the FBI has a job to do, and I am glad they are finally taking an interest in these concerning financial matters that our Committees have been investigating for months,” he said. “I expect that Mr. Bobulinski will speak with our committee as soon as possible and fully share his insights into the Biden family’s business dealings.”
In a lengthy tell-all interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson Tuesday night, Bobulinski said he made the decision to come forward because he felt that he needed to clear his name and tell his side of this story involving the Bidens’ foreign business dealings, saying he believes that former Vice President “Joe Biden and the Biden family are compromised.”
According to The Daily Caller, the committee is currently reviewing all the information that has been provided by Mr. Bobulinski.
