AP Falsely Claims Hunter Biden Probe Doesn't Involve Joe Biden

Associated Press falsely claimed the probe into Hunter Biden does not involve his father, President Joe Biden.

Breitbart News reported:

CLAIM: A revised Associated Press article claimed on November 19 there are "no indications" the federal probe into Hunter Biden involves President Joe Biden.

AP Falsely Claims Hunter Probe Doesn't Include Joe

VERDICT: FALSE. According to the New York Post, "[a] witness who testified before the Hunter Biden grand jury was asked to identify the 'big guy' in the first son’s planned deal with a Chinese energy conglomerate." The 'big guy' is a reference to Joe Biden, whistleblower and Hunter’s former business partner of Tony Bobulinski confirmed.

"The false claim is the second time the AP has purveyed false and misleading statements about the Biden family business in one article," reported Breitbart.

"In the same article on November 19, the AP falsely claimed Republicans had not put forward evidence that Joe Biden and his son Hunter had 'spoken' about the family’s foreign business dealings," Breitbart reported.

"Joe Biden has said he’s never spoken to his son about his foreign business, and nothing the Republicans have put forth suggests otherwise," The Associated Press reported.

"That false claim was revised after a Breitbart News fact check on November 19. The AP totally revised its statement without a disclaimer to read there are 'no indications' the federal probe into Hunter involved Joe Biden:

Joe Biden has said he’s never spoken to his son about his foreign business, and there are no indications that the federal investigation involves the president.

"But as the Post reported, a grand jury, created to investigate Hunter’s alleged tax violations, was asked to identify the 'big guy' in Hunter’s business deal with a Chinese energy conglomerate, CEFC China Energy Co," Breitbart reported.

Do you think President Biden should be included in the investigation into Hunter Biden's shenanigans?
