Senate Republicans Approves First Subpoena in Biden-Burisma Probe


Senate Republicans issued their first subpoena on Wednesday into the Ukrainian energy firm that hired former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

The Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted along party lines to issue a subpoena for Blue Star Strategies, a firm with ties to Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings. The subpoena asks for records dating back to Jan. 1, 2013 of Blue Star Strategies “related to work for or on behalf of Burisma Holdings or individuals associated with Burisma” to review potential conflicts of interest in Biden’s role on the board of Burisma, and whether individuals at the firm improperly used the relationship to “influence” U.S. government agencies.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of Homeland Security panel said the subpoena includes documents and depositions with the top two officials at Blue Star Strategies.
