Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) blasted the mainstream media for its effort to “cover up for the Bidens” amid his effort to investigate Hunter Biden’s ties to China.

When introducing new evidence on the Senate floor, Johnson claimed the media expresses their bias in what they choose not to report.

“Over the course of our investigation into how Hunter Biden used his father’s position and name to enrich himself and his family, the dishonest press published countless stories reporting on the Democrats’ false charge that we were soliciting and disseminating Russian disinformation. Once we issued our September and November 2020 reports, which were based almost exclusively on U.S. sourced documents and interviews with U.S. citizens, the media largely ignored it. When they did write a story on it, they declared that our reports found nothing new. A classic media cover-up,” Johnson said on the floor of the Senate.

“I’ve always said the bias in the media is revealed far more in what they don’t report versus what they do report.”

Johnson also produced bank records that allege money from CEFC, a Chinese energy company, went directly to the president’s son.

“These records show extensive connections between the Biden Family and elements of the communist Chinese regime. We’re talking high-dollar transactions – some of which we’ve already highlighted in our September and November 2020 reports. But, our speeches will introduce new financial documents into the public record for all to see. We expect Democrats and the media to continue to use their power to smear us and cover up for the Bidens. But the truth has a power of its own, and we intend to continue to reveal the truth,” Johnson added.

Furthermore, during the presidential election, large media outlets discredited a story from the New York Post around an email and laptop belonging to Biden. However, since then, they have confirmed the authenticity.
