A new poll has found that the majority of Americans who are registered to vote, including one third of Democrats, would like to see a special counsel be appointed to investigate the Biden family’s business dealings overseas.
The Scott Rasmussen poll from Just the News Daily Poll asked voters, “If Joe Biden becomes President, should a special counsel be appointed to investigate allegations of corruption involving his family’s dealings with China and Ukraine?”
A total of 52% of those polled responded with a “yes” to this question, which was asked to them between November 12-14. Unsurprisingly, 81% of Republicans had this response, but shockingly, 32% of Democrats said they wanted to see the Biden family investigated for corruption as well.
This comes weeks after Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said that while he is not a “big fan of special counsels, one may be needed if Biden indeed makes it into the White House.
“You know, I am not a big fan of special counsels, but if Joe Biden wins the presidency, I don’t see how you avoid one,” Johnson said. ” “Otherwise, this is going to be, you know, tucked away, and we will never know what happened. All this evidence is going to be buried, so I think we have to have a special [counsel] if Joe Biden wins.”
Last month, emails that were allegedly found on Hunter Biden’s laptop claimed that Joe Biden had met with a top executive at the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which his son served on the board on. Tony Bobulinski, Hunter’s former business partner, claimed that the former vice president knew all about his son’s business dealings and even profited from an agreement with the now-bankrupt Shanghai-based China Energy Fund Committee.
On Thursday, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Senate Homeland Security Chairman Johnson released the report “Hunter Biden, Burisma and Corruption: The Impact on U.S. Government Policy and Related Concerns,” which details their latest findings in their investigation into Hunter’s dealings.
Biden has denied ever receiving money from a foreign source, saying at the end of last month, “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source ever in my life.”
