On Sunday night’s episode of Life, Liberty & Levin on Fox News, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisc., told LevinTV host Mark Levin that despite all of the focus on President Trump’s discussions with Ukrainian officials, the media just doesn’t seem to care that the Hillary Clinton campaign directly colluded with the country during the last election, or what might have resulted from that arrangement.

“The only campaign that was literally campaigning and colluding with a foreign government wasn’t the Trump campaign; it was the Hillary Clinton campaign,” Johnson explained.

During the discussion, Johnson pointed to a story from January 2017 at Politico that outlines the Ukrainian government’s efforts to boost Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. “Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office,” the story reads. “They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election.”

But more than just working to undermine Trump and his associates, Johnson explained, there was also the possibility that Clinton-Kiev campaign collusion may have been about then-Vice President Joe Biden.

“It’s also very possible — and people don’t really realize this as well — you know, Hillary Clinton had a primary; there was one Joe Biden potentially getting into that race as well,” the senator explained. “Is it just possible or plausible that maybe the DNC, maybe the Hillary Clinton campaign, was also trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden back then in the Ukraine?”

Johnson also cautioned that he wasn’t making allegations or accusations, but “just saying there’s so many questions that remain unanswered.” They remain unanswered, he added, “because — by and large — the press has no curiosity about trying to get the answers to these things.”

“I’ve always known the bias in the media, but what I have really, what’s really been reinforced to me, is that the bias in the media is revealed far more in what they don’t report, what they’re not curious about, versus the very overt and real bias in what they do report,” Johnson said. “If they’re not curious about something, if they’re not reporting it, it’s not a news story.”
