Report Raises Serious Questions, Will the Media Care?
On Wednesday, the committee I chair joined with the Senate Finance Committee to release a report on the investigation into conflicts of interest with Hunter Biden and Burisma.
We found millions of dollars in questionable financial transactions between Hunter and his associates and foreign individuals, including the wife of the former mayor of Moscow.
The report draws almost exclusively on records from the U.S. government and U.S. entities, and from the testimony of U.S. persons.
Hunter Biden accepted a lucrative position on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company with a long-standing reputation for corruption, while his father was vice president of the United States and the public face of the Obama administrations handling of Ukraine policy.
The American people deserve to know the truth about the Biden familys foreign dealings.

Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal says the report raises many disturbing conflicts of interest.
National Review writes the mainstream media is ignoring evidence of corrupt foreign dealings.

Paying Respect To Ruth Bader Ginsburg
On Friday, Ruth Bader Ginsburg became the first woman in history to lie in state at the U.S. Captiol. My prayers are with her loved ones as they mourn an extraordinary life.
While we pay our respects, the Senate also has a job to do for the American people.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg was confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 42 days. Sandra Day OConnor, in 33 days, and John Roberts in 23 days.
70 percent of Supreme Court nominees since 1900 have been confirmed in less than 45 days.
There is enough time to fill this Supreme Court vacancy.
19 Supreme Court nominations have occurred in an election year when the same party controlled the White House and the Senate. 17 have been confirmed.
The Senate should vote on President Trump's nominee.
