A look behind Peters’ Investigation Hypocrisy
This Wednesday, the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee is set to vote on a subpoena of the Ukrainian oil and gas firm, Burisma. The firm has been linked to both to Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
Gary Peters - a ranking official on the committee - is actively blocking the committee’s intent to move forward with the investigation in his latest move. On Monday, Committee Chairman Ron Johnson (R-WI) called out Peters and his staff for hindering the investigation.
Here are the facts:
1996: Peters said then President Clinton’s impeachment “dragged on” and that he was “pleased it's all over.”
2020: Peters joined Democrats in calling for more witnesses in the impeachment trial of President Trump.
TODAY: Peters is now stalling the Senate’s process to collect further information on Hunter Biden, protecting son of Democrat presidential frontrunner, Joe Biden.

“Senator Gary Peters is a tried and true rubberstamp for Democrat leadership, who will say or do whatever it takes to protect their interests,” said Michigan Republican Party Chairman Laura Cox. Cox continued, “While Peters’ tries to claim that this shouldn’t be a ‘hyper-partisan’ issue, he has made his intention to cover for the Democrat Party clear, instead of trying to get to the bottom of the Biden family’s shady dealings.”
