Republicans' Hunter Biden Report Is Full Of Old Allegations - 2020-09-23
A Republican-led Senate investigation of the work of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his son Hunter in Ukraine finally landed Wednesday — not with a bang, as its authors had long promised, but with a whimper.
Led by Sens. Ron Johnson, chair of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, and Chuck Grassley, chair of the Senate Finance Committee, its findings are merely a compilation of information already in the public sphere: testimonies from US officials given during last year's impeachment hearings, controversial news articles, and unsubstantiated information published online by discredited Ukrainian operatives — all used to support weighty allegations that have already been debunked.
Democrats have said there is no evidence of wrongdoing on the Bidens' part and that the report's findings would only further spread Russia-backed disinformation with just six weeks to go until Election Day.
