Two Republican senators are calling on Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to release documents related to former Vice President Joseph R. Bidens son and his work for a Ukrainian energy company, saying Hunter Bidens role may have been used to influence the Obama State Department.
Sen. Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican, and Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, sent a letter to Mr. Pompeo Wednesday requesting all State Department records related to Hunter Biden and Burisma Holdings, the company at issue in the corruption probe.
They also want to know if the inspector general or another official at the State Department is reviewing potential conflicts of interest in connection to Hunters work for Burisma while his father was vice president.
E-mails recently obtained and made public through a [Freedom of Information Act] request indicate that Burismas consulting firm used Hunter Bidens role on Burismas board to gain access and potentially influence matters at the State Department, the senators said.
The Ukrainian energy company hired Mr. Bidens son for its board of directors, and then subsequently pressed the Obama State Department to end a corruption investigation into the company, according to the recently released documents.

Why don’t they subpoena them?
Do they need a formal investigation to give their subpoenas legal authority?
On the other hand, why wouldn’t Pompeo be happy to give that info if asked?
Good. Hit back! Hard!
The main-stream press refers to the Biden/Ukraine business as ‘debunked’. Hunter did nothing wrong, Joe did nothing wrong, just asking the question is interfering in the 2020 election. This will be portrayed as a ‘stunt’, as opposed to the ‘impeachment inquiry’.
2020 is gonna be one long-assed year...lol
I was just thinking the same thing so strap yourselves in! I think we are going to enjoy it!
Grassley is a squish today. The old Grassley would demand and order these records. Today he “requests”. Sen. Burr is even more useless a jellyfish.
Republican Senator is an oxymoron, with an emphasis on “MORON”.
Well, thats a forthcoming boom for the ages. I predict oodles and oodles of absolutely nothing coming our way any day now
The GOP Establishment just don’t know how to fight back without Trump — probably because deep down inside the GOPe are institutionalists even when t he institutions have been weaponized against them.
I see it all the Time Trump has to go do it on his own because the GOPe that surrounds him can’t figure it out on their own. Trump has to keep prodding those idiots to man up.
Breaking: Backstabber Romney (Delecto, Utah)
was selling influence in Ukraine!!!!
I wouldn’t expect too much out of the Senate, see Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Every member knows the whole dirty Story/Russia Hoax and the Seditious Conspiracy to Overthrow of the United States Government
Everyone in DC has a Hunter Biden in the family.
Democrats are LAW-LESS because Republicans are BALL-LESS!
I have no confidence in any D.C. Pubbie.
Wow, they are just now requesting documents?
They have had plenty of time to shred everything. Idiots.
Bet the discs were reformatted last week, you watch ...
Leave the damn IG alone so he can get the report out
Oy! Worse than the Watergate Years.
