Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley of Iowa and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin are demanding answers from President Joe Biden’s Justice Department about the role Russia collusion hoaxer Susan Hennessey will play in its National Security Division (NSD).

In a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland, the GOP legislators express concern that Hennessey’s willingness to echo partisan talking points and boost lies about the Trump administration will hinder her ability to approach current investigations such as Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation.

“As a general matter, all government employees must avoid situations that create even the appearance of impropriety and impartiality so as to not affect the public perception of the integrity of an investigation,” the senators wrote. “Ms. Hennessey’s partisan comments show a clear political bias that undercuts her ability to impartially work on some matters within the NSD’s purview, including the Durham inquiry.”

Hennessey, who formerly worked for Democrat think tank and Russia collusion hoax organization the Brookings Institution, previously deleted hundreds of rants peddling lies about Michael Flynn, Carter Page, and FISA, boosting the Steele dossier, and pushing other leftist collusion statements which the senators find concerning.

In addition to claiming that Steele was ‘a person whose work intelligence professionals take seriously,” Hennessey also “said that the 2018 memo from then-House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes exposing Crossfire Hurricane’s fundamental flaws would need to be
