WASHINGTON – On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) joined Neil Cavuto on Cavuto’s World to discuss the war in Israel and the threats posed by Iran and Hamas terrorists. On Wednesday, the senator joined Harris Faulkner on The Faulkner Focus and Maria Bartiromo on Mornings with Maria to expose the corruption of the FBI and their mishandling of the investigation into the Biden Crime Family as well as the worsening crisis at the southern border.
On The Faulkner Focus, Sen. Johnson discussed how the FBI undermined the investigation into the Biden family. He also brought attention to the national security threat posed by the Biden administration’s open border policies.
Sen. Johnson criticized the FBI turning a blind eye to the Biden Crime Family: “Unfortunately, we can't trust top officials in the FBI anymore. Their credibility is shattered. You take a look at how they tormented President Trump when they knew that, for example, the Steele dossier was sourced by somebody they were investigating as a Russian spy. And then they have 40 human sources saying that there's potential criminal activity within the Biden Crime Family.”
The senator blasted Democrat open border policies that threaten our national security: “Democrat supporters in Congress, care more about Ukraine's border than our own southern border. So, there's going to be a legitimate attempt to tie any funding for Ukraine to real border security where we actually stop the flow of illegal immigration, not allow 270,000 people come in one month through our southwest border. This is beyond a crisis. And it's also a huge national security threat. When you have Hamas calling for days of rage,probably periods of rage. You think in the 1.7 million known got-aways … there might be a terrorist or two in that cohort? So, we are highly concerned about the national security aspects and we need to secure border.”

On Mornings with Maria, Sen. Johnson shed light on U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa) recent letter that revealed the FBI sidelined and discredited over 40 confidential human sources despite providing criminal information related to Joe Biden, James Biden, and Hunter Biden.
Sen. Johnson revealed the pervasive corruption at the highest levels of the FBI: “Well first of all, I’d recommend that everybody read Senator Grassley’s seven-page letter. God bless the whistleblowers that are coming forward to his office. He’s the perfect person. He’s a champion of whistleblowers. But what this is showing is just, you know, just pervasive corruption at the highest levels of the FBI and not just in the Biden administration. This obstruction of justice, this obstruction of these investigations were occurring under the Trump administration, under Attorney General Bill Barr. Again, I don’t know whether, you know, Attorney General Bill Barr was aware of it, but his underlings were certainly frustrating, and of course, what they were doing is they were they actually had a scheme to downplay, not only downplay, but to denigrate any derogatory information on Hunter Biden calling it Russian disinformation. Senator Grassley and I were both actually, you know, targets of that operation to dissuade us off our investigation on Hunter Biden, as well. So this is corruption that runs deep inside some of the top offices of the FBI and people ought to read that letter, and we need those witnesses coming forward. We need more whistleblowers. But these individuals that Senator Grassley lays out, they need to be interviewed by Senator Grassley. Hopefully my office can be involved as well. And certainly the house.”

On Cavuto’s World, Sen. Johnson argued that any aid package to Israel be kept separate from Ukraine funding. The senator also emphasized the importance of U.S. strength on the world stage, remarking that the United States must stop appeasing the world’s largest state-sponsor of terror, Iran.

The senator slammed both the Biden and Obama administrations for appeasement of Iran, saying, “You know, the fact of the matter is the Obama administration and now the Biden administration have funneled tens, hundreds of billions of dollars into the largest state sponsor of terror, hoping to appease them. Hoping to buy better behavior from them. All it has done is embolden Iran. And so the first thing we need to do is cut off that funding. We need to recognize Iran for the malign force that is in the world and stop funding them.”
