Sen. Ron Johnson accuses Sen. Gary Peters of ‘Peddling Russian Disinformation’

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a hearing on Wednesday to discuss and review election security and administration issues. During the hearing, an argument broke out between U.S. Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wi) and Gary Peters (D-Mich) concerning the spread of disinformation regarding the Russia investigation.

Johnson accused Peters of introducing Russian disinformation ‘into our investigation record by leaking to the media and accusing him of ‘accepting and disseminating Russian disinformation from Andre Derkach.’

Derkach is a pro-Russian Ukrainian who promoted allegations against Joe Biden. U.S. intelligence has identified Derkach as an intelligence officer.

‘I’d never heard of the person until they brought it up,’ Johnson said. Johnson then referenced the Hunter Biden probe and confirmed the federal investigation of the president-elect’s son.

“Senior Democrat leaders, including ranking member Peters, were involved in a process of creating a false intelligence product, it was supposed to be classified, they leaked to the media, that accused Senator Grassley, the president pro tempore of the Senate, and myself of accepting and disseminating Russian disinformation.”

He continued, “I can’t sit by here and listen to this and say that this is not disinformation at this hearing today. This is getting information we have to take a look at to restore confidence in our election integrity.”

Peters denied the accusations saying, “I had nothing to do with this report you’re talking about.”

“You lied repeatedly in the press that I was spreading Russian disinformation. That was an outright lie and I told you to stop lying and you continued to do it!” Johnson replied.

Peters told Johnson that the hearing was not meant “for the airing your grievances.”

Johnson banged his gavel and attempted to move on to the next subject matter.

“This is terrible what you’re doing to this committee,” Peters continued.

“It is what you have done to this committee, falsely accusing the chairman of spreading disinformation,” Johnson fired back. “Nothing could have been further from the truth and you’re spouting it again, which is why I had to respond.”

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
