VIDEO: Senate Homeland Security Com Chairman Warns: “There are three ‘scandals’ taking place as it pertains to Biden”

The allegations against Hunter Biden are likely the reason why former President Obama “did not encourage the vice president to run” for president, Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told “Sunday Morning Futures” in an exclusive interview.

Johnson said the situation is “a huge mess” that is “not going away, particularly if Vice President Biden becomes the president.”

“It’s one of the reasons I’ve been saying for quite some time that I never felt that Vice President Biden should ever run for president,” he continued. “I think this is probably one of the reasons [why] President Obama did not encourage the vice president to run so this is a huge mess.”

Johnson reacted to a new development that a Justice Department official reportedly confirmed to Sinclair Broadcast Group that the FBI opened up a criminal investigation into Hunter Biden and his associates last year. The investigation reportedly is focused on allegations of money laundering and remains active, according to Sinclair.

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is investigating the newly released emails that reveal that Hunter Biden introduced his father to a top executive at Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings in 2015 at Hunter’s request. 

Host Maria Bartiromo pointed out that Johnson has been “sending letters to the FBI” to try “to get as much information” as possible “in terms of what they know.”

Last month, Johnson called on FBI Director Christopher Wray to confirm or deny details regarding a laptop said to have belonged to Hunter Biden.
