In a new letter, Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson demand travel records from Hunter Biden from Obama’s presidency, saying Secret Service “hid names and other information.”
The 2 GOP Senators argue the redactions “impede our offices’ ability to understand the full scope of the interactions.”
“The [U.S. Secret Service’s] production contains extensive Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) redactions, which do not apply to Congress and should not be applied to this production,” Johnson and Grassley wrote.
In the letter they say Secret Service “hid names and other information contained in email conversations regarding Hunter Biden without any proper legal justification.”
The provide multiple examples:
“The USSS records that we previously made public show that Hunter Biden was in Paris, France from May 29, 2014, to June 7, 2014, while a protectee,” and “The USSS records do not show whether USSS personnel or Hunter Biden traveled to Kazakhstan in May or June 2014.”
Pointing out specific gaps, the letter writes “we determined that even though Hunter Biden was a USSS protectee from January 2009 through July 2014, the USSS did not produce any communications regarding Hunter Biden’s travel for the years 2010, 2011, and 2013.
“The USSS’s lack of communications during these years raises questions given that USSS travel records show that Hunter Biden made trips to China and other destinations around the world, including, Russia, Italy, Spain and Mexico,” the letter adds.
