(FreedomBeacon.com)- Last Tuesday, Republican Senators Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin sent yet another letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding that the DOJ review an “incomplete and misleading” foreign lobbying report filed by the lobbying firm linked to one of Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian business associates.
The Senators noted that a recent lobbying report belatedly filed by Blue Star Strategies included inaccurate information and also failed to disclose several meetings between its lawyers and US government officials when Blue Star was representing Burisma Holdings and its founder, Mykola Zlochevsky.
According to a recent Just the News report cited in the Senators’ letter, Blue Star Holdings met with more US officials than those listed in the May 12 filing Blue Star submitted to the FISA office at the DOJ.
The May 12 filing by Blue Star belatedly disclosed that the firm engaged in lobbying on behalf of Burisma and Zlochevsky in 2015 and 2016. Joe Biden’s wayward son Hunter served on the Burisma board from 2014 until 2020.
In their letter, the senators noted that Blue Star’s filing contradicts the 2020 Senate testimony from Blue Star partners Karen Tramontano and Sally Painter. During their testimony, both women denied that they were trying to lobby or influence US officials. However, one of the officials they met with in 2016 was Joe Biden’s energy adviser Amon Hochstein. Hochstein testified to the Senate that Blue Star did try to change his position on Burisma.
A lawyer for Blue Star Strategies, Peter Kadzik, said in a statement to Just the News that the belated filing to FARA closed down the federal investigation into Blue Star without further action. Kadzik claimed that the DOJ found no wrongdoing.
In their letter to Garland, Grassley and Johnson provided eight questions they wanted answers to, including whether the inaccuracies and omissions on Blue Star’s FARA report were deliberate. They also want Garland to explain how the Justice Department will hold Blue Star officials accountable if the inaccurate statements and omissions were deliberate.
