Republicans in the Senate are gearing up to resume investigations of Obama-era officials and people tied to them, including Hunter Biden, as the November election draws closer.
The Hill reported that probes looking into Biden's business dealings in Ukraine and the origins of the Russia investigation are on the docket.
"In July, we will be having some public hearings. ...There's a lot to be done between now and September," Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said. Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, promised to "investigate the investigators."
Graham is looking to have former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates testify about a White House meeting that took place in the final days of President Barack Obama's time in office that included a discussion about whether or not to share classified information on Russia with Michael Flynn, the incoming national security adviser at the time.
Flynn was fired for lying to investigators about conversations he had with Russians during President Donald Trump's transition period and later pleaded guilty.
Also, potential witnesses to be called to testify are former FBI Director James Comey and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.
In the Senate, Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, meanwhile, chairman Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said he's looking to make public an interim report about Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings with Ukraine within weeks.
"We've got a very detailed timeline. … I've told staff I certainly want to get something out before the August recess, as incomplete as it is," Johnson told The Hill. "At some point in time we've got [to say] 'OK, here's what we've got. Here's the remaining questions that need to be answered.'"
Biden is the Democratic Party's presumptive presidential nominee to challenge Trump in the November election. RealClearPolitics shows Biden leading in the major national polls by an average of more than 8 percentage points.
Graham said this week that a key document in the Russia investigation could be made public in days.
"I want the memo out to the public so they can read it for themselves. I think we're days away from having it declassified, not weeks," Graham said.
