Sen. Ron Johnson is imploring more whistleblowers to come forward as Republicans continue to dig into various allegations of “corruption” within the Biden family, the media, and the federal government itself.
Johnson took to Twitter to share his comments, which accompanied a video interview with Newsmax host Rob Schmidt, during which he revealed that he believed the FBI had interfered with his and Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley’s investigation into the Hunter Biden laptop.
“For years I’ve been saying there is a much larger story than Biden family corruption. The corruption inside our federal agencies and MSM is extensive,” Johnson wrote on Twitter. “We need more whistleblowers to come forward and tell us the truth. That is the only way to restore integrity and credibility.”
The Wisconsin Republican went on to say that he “took no joy” in investigating Hunter. However, he added that he was “concerned if then-candidate Biden would become president he’d be compromised, and he is.”
He described the corruption in Washington as “breathtaking” and said that it stretches back for years. He pointed to the Obama-era IRS scandal and the exoneration of Hillary Clinton by the FBI over her email scandal, before focusing in on 2020.
He highlighted the IRS scandal that occurred during the Obama era as well as the FBI’s exoneration of Hillary Clinton in relation to her email controversy. He then shifted his attention to events that took place in 2020.
“People didn’t like the fact we were investigating Hunter Biden and his connection to Joe Biden. The mainstream media literally printed more than 100 articles about how we were soliciting and disseminating Russian disinformation,” Johnson said.
In a recently disclosed interview with Congress, IRS whistleblower Gary Shapley revealed that the FBI had verified the authenticity of Hunter’s laptop as early as November 2019.
“The whole discussion was about: Can we rely on this information on the laptop, is it Hunter Biden’s? And their opinion was, it was, and it was not manipulated in any way,” Shapley said of the bureau.
