The Senate Homeland Security Committee released an interim report on Wednesday related to its investigation into former Vice President Joe Biden's dealings with Ukraine, saying the Republican-led panel has found no improper influence or wrongdoing by Biden. Committee chair Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) admittedly hoped to prove Biden's "unfitness for office," but said the investigation found no "massive smoking guns" regarding Biden or his son Hunter Biden. Republicans have sought to find collusion between Biden's vice presidency and his son's work at the Ukrainian energy company Burisma, seeing as Biden led Ukraine policy at the time. While Hunter Biden's work with Burisma reportedly made things "awkward" for State Department officials, the investigation did not confirm Republicans' accusations that Biden tried to oust Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin to protect his son from an investigation.
