(PatriotWise.com)- Following the shocking release of emails between Hunter Biden and his business associates, the Senate will be launching an investigation into whether former Vice President Joe Biden had a hand in his son landing lucrative business deals abroad.
Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin told Fox News on Wednesday that an investigation will be launched by the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. It will be tasked with finding out what role the then-vice president played in his son’s business dealings in Ukraine.
Joe Biden has long claimed that he did not have any knowledge of his son’s business dealings in Ukraine, but the emails revealed this week suggest otherwise. The New York Post published some of the contents of a hard drive that was obtained by a computer repair shop in Delaware. The shop had received a laptop that contained emails between Hunter Biden, his business associates, and executives from Ukrainian gas company Burisma.
Before handing the computer over to federal authorities, the computer shop owner took a copy of the hard drive and released them to The Post.
Among the emails is a “message of appreciation” from Vadym Pozharskyi, an executive of Burisma, thanking Hunter Biden for introducing him to Vice President Joe Biden.
“Dear Hunter, thank you for inviting me to DC and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spent [sic] some time together,” the email reads.

The problem for Joe Biden is that he has previously claimed to have never met officials from the Ukrainian energy company.
Senator Johnson said to Fox that the first order of business for the committee will be verifying and investigating the emails and that they have already been in contact with those in the chain of possession.
“We regularly speak with individuals who email the committee’s whistle-blower account to determine whether we can validate their claims,” he said. “Although we consider those communications to be confidential, because the individual in this instance spoke with the media about his contact with the committee, we can confirm receipt of his email complaint, have been in contact with the whistle-blower, and are in the process of validating the information he provided.”
Could this be the end of Biden’s long political career?
