Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) spoke with Bill Hemmer Thursday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” and asserted that U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as well as the “corruption of the complicit media” have had far greater influence over elections in America than any scheming the foreign adversary of Russia could have executed.

As GOP lawmakers in the House call upon the Department of Justice to be expeditious in providing information on its investigation into Hunter Biden, host Bill Hemmer asked Johnson if the Senate planned to act in concert.

“When you have investigations into corruption within the public realm, when you’re talking about public political figures, we did this backwards,” Johnson stated. “I think we should start with congressional investigations. We should have full access to all the information. If we see possible wrongdoing, then we would refer it to the Justice Department.”

He continued, “What happens now is the Justice Department starts a criminal investigation and then Congress, which means the American public get no information whatsoever even though that information is crucial for the electorate to determine whether or not they want to vote for somebody.”

“You’ve seen the polls. Had the American public known the corruption of Biden Inc., of Hunter Biden, ‘the big guy,’ Joe Biden would not be president. My guess, we probably wouldn’t see Vladimir Putin invading Ukraine,” the senator opined.

“These – the actions taken, the corruption of the complicit media and elements within our law enforcement and intelligence agencies have had an incredible, serious impact on our politics, on elections. They interfered in our elections to a far greater extent than anything Russia ever could have hoped to achieve,” he declared.

Fifteen Republican legislators in the House recently penned a letter to the DOJ demanding more action as it relates to suspected improprieties on the part of Hunter Biden and perhaps President Biden as well.

“[L]egal questions plaguing Hunter Biden continue to arise and cast doubt on President Joe Biden and his administration…It is imperative that the Department of Justice brief Congress on the nature of Mr. Weiss’s investigation into Hunter Biden,” the lawmakers wrote to Attorney General Merrick Garland, Fox News reported.

“Congress has a constitutional obligation to conduct oversight of the Executive Branch and a moral obligation to examine if the President of the United States or any senior official in his administration is ethically compromised or injured,” they added.

Signatories of the letter included U.S. Reps. Bob Good (R-VA), as well as high-profile MAGA stalwarts such as Marjorie Taylor Green (R-GA) and Matt Gaetz (R-FL) as well as Chip Roy (R-TX) along with Freedom Caucus chair Andy Biggs (R-AZ).

Hemmer asked Johnson, “If there is a Republican majority in the Senate come November, or January of next year, how do you then compel them to cooperate with you at that point?”

Johnson replied, “You start issuing subpoenas. But then you have to enforce the subpoenas. And it’s difficult to enforce the subpoena when you have the opposite party in power in the AG’s office and you have an AG that’s partisan. That’s what we have right now.”

He concluded, “It’s going to be difficult. Public pressure means an awful lot. I think that’s why it’s so important for this information to get out in the public realm so the public puts pressure on the attorney general to be a straight shooter and provide the American people the information it needs – the American people deserve the truth.”
