Investigation into the Bidens lends 'credence to a Russian disinformation,' Obama said

Former President Barack Obama blasted the GOP for "feeding Russian disinformation" by investigating Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter's activity in Ukraine.

Senate Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Ron Johnson in November demanded documents related to Obama-era White House meetings from the National Archives.

National Security Council staff had meetings with Ukrainian officials and former Democratic National Committee consultant Alexandra Chalupa.

Chalupa is facing allegations that she coordinated with Ukrainian officials while searching for Russia-related opposition research on President Trump’s then-campaign manager Paul Manafort.

But The National Archives failed to deliver the documents by the deadline.

Johnson said:

“There's a certain time period that President Obama would have to claim executive privilege."

"Specifically, the National Archives have to let us know what those privilege claims are, and that time has already expired, so we should be getting this production now."

“There had to be a valid claim of executive privilege [from Obama] or deliberative process," he added.

"So they have to make those claims, and they haven't that I'm aware of and the National Archives hasn't. … We’re working on a letter right now.”

Obama’s representative Anita Breckenridge wrote in response saying investigation into the Bidens lends “credence to a Russian disinformation campaign — one that has already been thoroughly investigated by a bipartisan congressional committee — is without precedent.”

The letter closed:

“Nevertheless, in the interest of countering the misinformation campaign underlying this request, we are prepared on this occasion to provide the Committees access to the records responsive to this request.”

Johnson’s spokesman Austin Altenburg responded to the former president’s letter:

“Our legitimate oversight is based on the many unanswered questions that surround potential conflicts of interest relating to the Obama administration’s policy decisions with respect to Ukraine and Burisma Holdings."

"Our investigation is extensive, and our request for President Obama’s records is only one of many lines of inquiry,” Altenburg said to the Washington Examiner in an email.

“The accusation that our oversight gives ‘credence to a Russian disinformation campaign’ is unfounded," he added.

"The real Russian disinformation, we now know, was contained in the Steele dossier. Baseless accusations aside, our legitimate oversight will continue until we get answers for the American people.”

Earlier this year, Neon Nettle reported Hunter Biden's Ukraine energy company took hundreds of millions of dollars from Russia, China, and Kazakhstan.

In recent months, Hunter Biden has come under increasing scrutiny for his business dealings with Ukrainian natural gas and oil firm Burisma Holdings while his father was vice president.
