Allegations are piling up accusing the DOJ and the FBI of engaging in political bias in favor of the Biden family in an investigation into Hunter Biden's laptop. But as Senator Ron Johnson said on Twitter: "Political bias has no place at the Department of Justice or the FBI."

The American people deserve the truth. I will continue to call for any potential corruption within our federal agencies to be investigated to the fullest extent of the law. https://t.co/IjF0p9TMzK
The FBI and Justice Department have been accused by “highly credible whistleblowers” of burying “verified and verifiable” dirt on President Biden’s troubled son Hunter by incorrectly dismissing the intelligence as “disinformation,” according to Sen. Chuck Grassley.
The ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee made the explosive claims Monday in an official Senate letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland.
He insisted the allegations were so serious, they would prove — if confirmed — that both offices were “institutionally corrupted to their very core.”
On Sunday, Senator Johnson told "Fox & Friends Weekend":
First of all, thank God for those whistleblowers. We need a whole lot more of them in the FBI, the Department of Justice, and in our federal health agencies. They need to come forward and start talking to us. I'm not shocked, but it's outrageous that the FBI would be tipping the scales of justice the way they're doing. I have no faith in Christopher Wray of conducting this investigation, but it's important that the American public understand the FBI had Hunter Biden's laptop in December of 2019. They certainly saw the evidence of what I think is that criminal activity on that laptop. They've done nothing. Here we are in the end of July, early August 2022. What have they done with it? No, you can't you can't trust this Department of Justice, the FBI, to get to the bottom of this.
FBI Director Christopher Wray is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee this Thursday.
When @FBI Director Wray appears before @SenJudiciaryGOP on Thursday, we expect concrete steps from him to ensure that none of this political bias ever happens again.https://t.co/2WfqpKqnw6— Sen. Grassley Press (@GrassleyPress) August 1, 2022
Republicans like Senators Johnson and Grassley should be applauded for the important work they are doing to hold federal agencies accountable for clearly partisan actions those agencies have taken in high-profile investigations.
