WASHINGTON—On Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), ranking member of the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, with U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), ranking member of the Committee on the Judiciary, sent a letter to the Director of U.S. Secret Service (USSS), James M. Murray, reiterating requests for  Hunter Biden’s travel records.  This request continues the senators’ oversight of Hunter Biden’s use of Secret Service protection while his father was Vice President. In response to the senators’ previous request, the USSS provided 259 pages of heavily redacted documents and failed to provide any records from 2010, 2011, or 2013.


The senators wrote, “The USSS’s production contains extensive Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) redactions, which do not apply to Congress and should not be applied to this production. These inappropriate redactions impede our offices’ ability to understand the full scope of the interactions between Hunter Biden, his associates, and the USSS.”


They went on to say, “We determined that even though Hunter Biden was a USSS protectee from January 2009 through July 2014, the USSS did not produce any communications regarding Hunter Biden’s travel for the years 2010, 2011, and 2013. The USSS’s lack of communications during these years raises questions given that USSS travel records show that Hunter Biden made trips to China and other destinations around the world, including, Russia, Italy, Spain and Mexico.”
