With the House deciding to move forward with the impeachment inquiry, the media wanted answers regarding the denials that Joe Biden had anything to do with Hunter Biden’s business deals.
This comes after Hunter Biden curiously changed the wording of his denial, saying that his father was not “financially involved” in his business ventures.
Jean-Pierre got hammered by numerous outlets, clearly losing her patience, but also choosing a curious response herself.
The presser got started with Steven Nelson from the New York Post asking why Joe interacted with Hunter’s business associates if he had nothing to do with the business ventures.
KJP responded, "What we're seeing from House Republicans is wasted time. And it is certainly, you know, a baseless political slant. That's what we're seeing. And they're leaving. House Republicans are leaving this week to go, you know, enjoy a nice holiday. Right? As most Americans should. But what happened to the funding to Ukraine?"
She went on to issue other areas that Congress should be addressing, then added, "There's been zero evidence, zero evidence. You can ask me about engagement and what the president has done with his family in conversation. But there's no evidence.”
When Nelson tried to push back, presumably to list the evidence the House has listed, KJP interrupted him, adding, "Wait, wait. But there's no evidence. There is no evidence that the president has done wrongdoing. There's none. Absolutely none. None. And that is just a fact.
“You've heard it from Republicans themselves. So they're wasting their time. Instead of doing the work on behalf of the American people, they go after the president's family. But that's a waste of time.”
This happened with several journalists, but did you notice how she did not deny that Biden had lied about being in contact with Hunter Biden business associates this time, where she has regularly stood behind Biden’s denials in the past?
In terms of the evidence, while most legal experts say they may not have a smoking gun in this case, there is clearly evidence that suggests Biden was involved in Hunter’s business activities.
There is also still the question of the alleged loans to Hunter and James Biden, but Joe Biden has produced no evidence of a front-end payment to confirm the loans, Rep. Comer (R-KY) has not been able to find that evidence in the bank records he has been able to obtain, and the IRS whistleblowers stated they did not see any evidence of such payments being issued by Joe Biden.
Joe Biden continues to deny any knowledge, even with emails and audio that say differently. In his most recent denial, Biden snapped at a reporter, stating, "I'm not going to comment. I did not, and it's just a bunch of lies. They're lies. I did not. They're lies."
