WASHINGTON — On Wednesday, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) joined Fox News’ “Hannity” and Newsmax’s “Rob Schmitt Tonight” to discuss President Biden’s failure to stand up to our adversaries abroad and the need for answers surrounding the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Joe Biden’s weak foreign policy:

Well, out of control Democrats are going to do what the mainstream media is going to do about it: nothing. They are going to completely ignore it. And you know, Sean, I don’t think all these cyberattacks, I don’t think Hamas’ attack against Israel, I don’t think these things are a coincidence. I think the world is testing Joe Biden because they know he will be weak. As Obama’s defense secretary Robert Gates said, Joe Biden has been wrong on every foreign policy and major national security issue for the last 40 years. That wasn’t just describing history, that was predictive of what was going to happen under a Biden administration, and now we are seeing it play out in all its gory detail.” (Sen. Johnson, ‘Hannity,’ 6/2/21)

On mainstream media bias:


“We knew that Joe Biden lied about the fact that he said he had never spoken to Hunter about his overseas business connections. We revealed that in our report. There were a couple of instances which proved that pretty conclusively. Now the meeting at Café Milano certainly proves the fact that he knew about these and was probably intimately aware of what was happening with many of these foreign financial entanglements — which, as Tony Bobulinski said, compromised the Biden administration. We tried to warn America but the media suppressed it. They censored it. They wouldn’t let the American public understand the truth, just like they haven’t allowed the American public to understand the truth of Chinese complicity in the origin of the Wuhan virus.” (Sen. Johnson, ‘Hannity,’ 6/2/21)

“The mainstream media is part and parcel of the Democrat Party. As Judge Silberman said, they’re the broadsheet of the Democratic party. It’s a real shame because we need a free and unbiased press. We don’t have an unbiased press.” (Sen. Johnson, ‘Rob Schmitt Tonight,’ 6/2/21)

On COVID-19 origins:

“I think Dr. Fauci needs to provide answers for, as well, in terms of why early treatment was denied to the American public for well over a year.” (Sen. Johnson, ‘Rob Schmitt Tonight,’ 6/2/21)

“We know China is completely complicit and guilty here, because even if it didn’t leak from a lab, they knew that this was happening. That’s been revealed. And they shut down air travel within China, and yet they allowed air travel around the rest of world so the coronavirus could infect the rest of the world and kill hundreds of thousands of people. So China is absolutely guilty. I doubt we’ll ever get hard and fast evidence because they’ve had 18 months to destroy it.”  (Sen. Johnson, ‘Rob Schmitt Tonight,’ 6/2/21)
