Doug Jones on Joe and Hunter Biden investigation: ‘We cannot go around trying to investigate every perceived enemy of the president, especially this president’

Calls from the White House for the U.S. Senate to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden’s relationship with Ukrainian energy company Burisma are being dismissed by U.S. Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook).

On Wednesday, the U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday voted to authorize subpoenas related to an investigation into the younger Biden’s Burisma ties.

During an appearance on MSNBC earlier on Wednesday, Jones, a backer of the elder Biden’s 2020 presidential bid, seemingly shrugged off those calls by saying that the Senate should not be expected to “investigate every perceived enemy” of President Donald Trump.


“It’s the craziest thing I’ve ever heard,” Jones said. “I mean, the chairman of the Federal Reserve talking about the need to get more done for the American businesses and for the American workers. We’re still in the middle of a health care crisis here. We cannot go around trying to investigate every perceived enemy of the president, especially this president. That’s all that they would be doing. I can tell you, though, that Democrats in the Senate are talking about the things that are necessary.”
