Secretary of State Antony Blinken has been accused of providing “false testimony” to Congress concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Burisma.  Republican senators Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley wrote a letter to Blinken on Monday stating, “On December 22, 2020, you provided false testimony to Congress during your voluntary transcribed interview,” referring to his interview before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee while Blinken was still working for the Biden campaign.  “Your statement to Congress that you did not email Hunter Biden is clearly not true and calls into question the veracity of your entire December 22, 2020 testimony,” the letter continued.  This comes following a report by that revealed Blinken and his wife, Joe Biden’s cabinet secretary Evan Ryan, were involved an attempt to sway U.S. government officials on behalf of Ukrainian gas firm, Burisma.
