Immediately following the acquittal of President Donald Trump on Wednesday, Senate Republican leaders Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) sent a letter demanding Hunter Biden’s travel records from the Secret Service.
They issued a letter to Secret Service Director James Murray to get clarification on “whether Hunter Biden used government-sponsored travel to help conduct private business.”
In their letter, Grassley and Johnson wrote the following:
1. Please describe the protective detail that Hunter Biden received while his father was Vice President.
2. Please provide a list of all dates and locations of travel, international and domestic, for
Hunter Biden while he received a protective detail. In your response, please note whether
his travel was on Air Force One or Two, or other government aircraft, as applicable and
whether additional family members were present for each trip.
Grassley and Johnson respectively chair the Senate Committee on Finance and Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, so they are very influential leaders in the Republican-controlled Senate. They are putting their tremendous credibility into getting to the bottom of the Biden family’s shady dealings and further vindicating President Trump even after his exoneration.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC), another top Trump ally who stood with him throughout the impeachment witch hunt, also says he will be using his authority to investigate the Biden family.
“The day of reckoning is coming for congressional and Senate oversight of Joe Biden,” Graham said to Fox News on Sunday before the acquittal vote took place.
“They ruined America’s ability to effectively deal with corruption in the Ukraine by having Hunter Biden on the board of Burisma. That’s just a fact,” Graham added. “And we’re going to get to the bottom of it.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has denied all responsibility and defended his son’s actions while on the campaign trail to be the Democratic presidential nominee for this year’s election in November.
“No one’s found anything wrong with his dealings with Ukraine except they say it sets a bad image,” Joe Biden said on Monday.
Unfortunately for Biden, he owned up to issuing a dastardly quid pro quo to Ukraine while he was Vice President. He admitted to strong-arming the Ukrainian government, holding a $1 billion loan guarantee over their heads, to get them to fire Prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who just so happened to be investigating Burisma holdings.
Joe Biden brags about how he threatened to pull $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine if it didn’t immediately fire Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that the entire Obama regime was in on the scandalous affair!

Now that the impeachment witch hunt has come to a close, Republicans can finally get to investigating the real corrupt actors in the Democratic Party and the deep state.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
