Republican Senator Says Democrats Are Pushing For Shutdown

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) told fill-in presenter Jason Chaffetz on this week’s episode of Fox News Channel’s “Sunday Morning Futures” that Democrats were hoping for a shutdown as the deadline for a budget deal in Congress approaches.

The Republican from Tennessee claims that Democrats want a shutdown so that the investigations of President Joe Biden by the Republican-led House can’t proceed.

Blackburn said that the government shutdown is something the Democrats want because it would stop the investigations the House is doing. The senator noted that Chairman Comer, Chairman Jordan, and Chairman Smith are still working hard to acquire this data and learn more about the connection between “Joe Biden and Biden Inc.”

The Senator then told Chaffetz that the Senate and the people would like to see the thousands of emails Joe Biden sent under a pseudonym.

Nearly 5,400 emails, electronic records, and other documents may show that President Joe Biden used pseudonyms when communicating with his son Hunter, according to a conservative nonprofit that obtained them from the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

The claim was made in response to a Freedom of Information Act request submitted by the Southeastern Legal Foundation (SLF), a charity located in Atlanta, in June 2022.
SLF sued NARA in federal court on the same day, demanding access to the thousands of emails the agency was holding.

As the investigation into Hunter Biden’s international business activities by House Republicans continues, the emails exchanged by the then-vice president under the three aliases have come under attention.

President Joe Biden has repeatedly denied any misconduct and said there was an “absolute wall” between his family’s company and official government duties.

Congressman and Senators, who are charged with oversight, cannot take the word of the President, mainly when emails refer to Biden as “the big guy” who “gets his cut.”

Blackburn and her colleagues must be allowed to cut through the smoke to see if there is fire.
