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.

With polls consistently showing a poor approval rating for President Joe Biden at below 40 percent, and a recent poll put Kamala Harris’ electability at only 28 percent, Democrats are in full panic mode.

Behind-the-scenes discussion of how Democrats could arrive at a third option for the next election is underway. Operatives are preparing for the possibility of a contested presidential primary in which other would-be nominees take on Ms. Harris, but that could be damaging for the party” reports the Telegraph.

Therefore, Democrats are allegedly whispering about a potential “nuclear option” that would call for current Vice President Harris to be nominated to the Supreme Court. The Telegraph writes that “while the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”

The theory in question would call for President Biden to nominate Harris to the Supreme Court in the event a seat opens in the next three years during his administration. Biden could then use “Section 2 of the 25thAmendment to nominate a more popular vice president”, adds the Telegraph.

Under Section 1 of the 25th Amendment, that new vice president could assume the presidency if Biden were to step down while president. They would then become the Democratic nominee in the 2024 presidential election. That same individual could also be the presumptive Democratic nominee in 2024 if Biden chooses not to run for re-election.

One piece of information that is wetting Democrats’ whistle is that current Supreme Court Justice Breyer has said he does not “want to stay on the Supreme Court until I die.”

The Telegraph notes that “the discussion over potential successors to Mr. Biden is highly unusual less than a year into an administration.”
