White House Press Secretary Blasted for Not Answering Hunter Biden Questions

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was criticized after ignoring a reporter's question about Hunter Biden and walking away from the podium on Wednesday.

Allegations concerning the first son were a major focus this week after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced an impeachment inquiry this week in the House.

"Can you explain why the president interacted with so many of his son’s foreign business associates!? More than half of voters told CNN they believe the president was involved and he lied! You can’t have a response to that, Karine?" New York Post correspondent  Steven Nelson asked.

"Jean-Pierre declined to answer and instead left the podium," according to Fox News.

“The only reason Speaker McCarthy is doing this political stunt ... is because Marjorie Taylor Greene threatened to shut down the government," Jean-Pierre said earlier this week concerning the impeachment inquiry.

"Can you imagine shutting down the government over a political stunt? ... She wanted him to actually do this, and if he didn’t she would shut down the government,” she said.

Despite the White House press secretary's response, the GOP-led House is moving forward with the impeachment effort.

However, even if the movement is successful in the House, it will face a major roadblock in the Senate where 60 of the chamber's 100 senators would have to agree for the impeachment to be approved.

Instead, Republicans seem content with using the effort to obtain more details in its investigation of the president and to draw attention to his actions ahead of the 2024 election.

The effort may help in the potential rematch against former President Donald Trump next year.
