President Joe Biden left voters with a curious new statement following a failed plea deal involving three charges against first son Hunter Biden.
The president has now referred to the situation by saying he was "never in business" with his son.

"Starting with his campaign for the presidency and continuing until recently, President Biden has maintained one clear and consistent position on his son's influence-peddling schemes. As a virtual mantra, Biden — and the White House staff — have categorically maintained that he had no knowledge of any foreign dealings of his son," Fox News reported.
"That has been proven to be a lie, but Biden continued to maintain the position. Yet, on the eve of the testimony of a key Biden associate, the White House has changed its position. Now the president is only claiming that he was 'never in business' with his son," it added.

"U.S. District Court Judge Maryellen Noreika picked apart his plea deal with surgical precision, exposing its legal contradictions, and upbraiding both defense counsel and the Department of Justice for structuring an unprecedented deal that in her view — and mine — was illegal and unconstitutional," the Federalist reported.
"She understood that the lawyers were trying to paint her into a corner and hide the ball while forcing her to rubber-stamp their absurd bargain," it continued.
"Instead of being that rubberstamp though, she backed DOJ and Hunter’s lawyers into a corner by pulling all the details out into the open, explaining the very serious legal and constitutional issues with this unprecedented method of structuring what should have been a simple plea agreement, and demanding that the lawyers explain themselves, which they simply couldn’t to her satisfaction," it added.
The plea bargain is related to criminal charges unrelated to Hunter Biden's international business dealings other than tax evasion.
However, the failed plea bargain means Hunter Biden will now still be open to issues related to the investigation he now faces with the House Oversight Committee.
The investigation of the first son is far from over, with the latest details continuing to include problems for the president.
