U.S. Senate committee has voted to issue a subpoena as part of its investigation into Hunter Biden, former Vice-President Joe Biden’s son, The Voice of America reports.

Its Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee voted 8-6 to subpoena Blue Star Strategies, a lobbying firm that was a consultant to Burisma, a gas company in Ukraine that paid Hunter Biden to serve as a board member.

The issuance of the subpoena was initiated by Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson who claims that that the investigation "is not designed to hurt Biden".

Nevertheless, Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesman, stated that Johnson was “running a political errand” for Trump.

Senator Johnson should be working overtime to save American lives — but instead he is just trying to save the president’s job,” he said.
