It was another rough day for White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, who was forced into a humiliating corner when Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy pressed her on just how much Brandon knew about the Biden “family business”, the deals that Hunter was allegedly striking in China, the Ukraine, and other places with a need for influence in the highest reaches of American government.
Asking KJP about that, Doocy said “With the new Republican majority coming in, the House Oversight Committee is laying out their new investigations, and they claim it had evidence that Joe Biden lied to the American people about his involvement in his family’s business schemes. Did he?”
KJP didn’t even try to respond to the actual question, instead attacking Republicans for saying they want to fight inflation but then instead focusing on “political division” by calling for the investigation of Biden and his family. Ignored there is that, if something criminal was going on, it should be investigated…and that Democrats dragged Trump through years of investigations. In her words:
“So look, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. House Republicans promise that fighting inflation during the midterms was going to be their number one priority, that is what they said was important to them and that’s what they said they wanted to do.
“But instead, what they’re doing, is wanting to start an investigation on the president and his family. They don’t want to focus on the American people and their family, they want to focus on political division. They want to focus on something that the American people do not want to see, as we saw from the midterm elections.
“Look, I’m not going to get into — you know, get into the specifics of any of the oversight here. We have a White House Counsel that’s going to — my colleagues who are going to deal with this. So I would point you to them.
“And, you know, again, I’ll point you — one more thing — I’ll point you to tomorrow. Tomorrow, we’re going to see a — you know, a trip, an event where — that’s going to be done in a bipartisan way.
“So, there’s ways to move forward for the American people, for American families in a way that works.”
Watch that back and forth here:
For reference, Doocy had good reason to ask KJP about the Biden family business. As the Daily Caller on the matter reported:
The Republican-led House Oversight Committee said there is evidence that Biden “lied to the American people” about his involvement in his family’s overseas business dealings. The new Republican majority in the House has vowed to investigate the president’s son, Hunter, over his dealings with a Ukrainian energy company, Burisma, and a Chinese energy company, CEFC China Energy.
The same Daily Caller also added that “House Republicans on the Oversight Committee released a report in November alleging that Biden “misused his public positions” to enhance his family’s “financial interests.” Republican Kentucky Rep. James Comer previously said that they “laid out the evidence” to investigate the president’s involvement in his son’s business dealings.“
