Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) has alleged that Secretary of State Antony Blinken was engaging in “boldface” lies when he said under patch to Congress in 2020 that he had not exchanged emails with Hunter Biden.
These remarks by Johnson came after email correspondences between Blinken and Hunter Biden showed that the two were in touch in 2015 back when Blinken served under then-President Barack Obama and Hunter held a position on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma, reported The New York Post.
“We know that he lied boldface to Congress about never emailing Hunter Biden,” Johnson charged during an appearance on Fox’s Sunday Morning Futures with Maria Bartiromo. “My guess is he told a bunch of other lies.”
“My guess is he told a bunch of other lies that hopefully we’ll be able to bring him and his wife back in, tell them to preserve their records,” predicted Johnson. “You cannot trust Joe Biden. You cannot trust Hunter Biden. You can’t trust the Biden family. You can’t trust so many of the people that they have surrounded themselves with.”
To clarify if Johnson was alleging that Blinken potentially committed a federal crime, she asked him if he had just said Blinken “lied under oath.”
“Yes, he did,” answered Johnson. “He said he did not email Hunter Biden, and now we have those emails. We also know that his wife, using her private email address when she was a[n] employee of the State Department, was basically a conduit between her husband and Hunter Biden as well. So, again, I think there’s so much more to uncover here.”

The Post reported that Blinken’s messages with Hunter Biden in 2015 came entirely from his own personal AOL email account, with no affiliation to the State Department or any other government agency. It also found that records showed Hunter emailed Blinken’s wife, Evan Ryan, to inquire about her husband’s email address.
Johnson indicated that more of Blinken’s alleged shady practices would be exposed as new records are soon released by James Comer (R-KY), who heads the House Oversight Committee.
Upon being asked about Joe Biden’s re-election announcement slogan, Johnson reportedly responded, “What job? Destroying America? Because that’s what path he’s put this country on.”
