The Republican-controlled Senate Committee on homeland security supported a resolution requiring documents related to the work of the son of former Vice President Joe Biden hunter in the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
The request will be sent to Blue Star Strategies, which has partnered with Burisma. The initiator of this decision is the head of the Committee, Ron Johnson, reports Deutsche Welle.
Republicans want to initiate an investigation into suspicions that there was a conflict of interest between hunter Biden’s work in Ukraine and his father’s work in the Ukrainian direction in the Obama administration.
Biden’s staff perceived the decision of the Senate Committee negatively, as an attempt by the Republican majority to keep trump as President.

The MP stressed that the records “show the facts of international corruption and state treason at the highest state level.”
