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.

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment
Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.
In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.
“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”
The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”
Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
