Washington Examiner: Hunter Biden pressure and FBI oversight may hinge on Grassley and Johnson reelections

Washington Examiner

The success of investigations into Hunter Biden and of Republican oversight of the FBI could hinge on Tuesday’s midterm elections, in particular the outcome of reelection bids by Sens. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Ron Johnson (R-WI).

Grassley and Johnson, who often team up, released a report on the Biden family’s finances in September 2020, and the duo has spent two years continuing to press the Justice Department on shortcomings in the Hunter Biden investigation, including raising whistleblower concerns. If Republicans win a Senate majority back from Democrats, Grassley is expected to become chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Johnson will likely chair the subcommittee on investigations within the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

Mike Davis, the former chief counsel for nominations to Grassley, told the Washington Examiner that Grassley’s oversight will be “very sobering” for the president’s son.

“It turns out selling access to foreign enemies catches up to you,” Davis said.

Davis also warned Attorney General Merrick Garland to cooperate with Grassley otherwise, his tenure “may end as badly as his dreams for the Supreme Court.”
