Things went about the same as usual at yesterday’s press conference, which is to say that the Biden Administration again looked foolish on the public stage thanks to just the slightest investigative reporting and questioning.
Yesterday, that had to do with alleged corruption in the Biden family, with a reporter asking White House National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby what he would say to those worried about the Biden family’s alleged corruption.
Beginning, the reporter noted that numerous House investigations are prying into what the Biden family might have been up to and alleged that there is an FBI file alleging that President Biden himself took bribes, saying, “There have been many developments in the House investigations into the First Family’s international business dealings recently. There is one committee trying to get an FBI file alleging that President Biden took bribes. There’s another IRS whistleblower who’s alleging there’s a cover-up in the investigation.”
Continuing, the reporter turned from what the GOP-controlled House is up to when it comes to Biden family activities and toward what the public thinks about the issue, noting that a recent poll showed a majority of the public believes Joe and Hunter Biden were involved in some sort of influence peddling scheme. “Amid all of this, there was a Harvard/Harris poll this month that found that 53 percent of the public, including a fourth of Democrats, believe, quote, “Joe Biden was involved with his son in an illegal influence peddling scheme,” the reporter said.
And that wasn’t it. Continuing, the reporter then claimed there is evidence showing Biden family contacts with other corrupt regimes around the world, which would imply corruption or influence peddling on the Biden family’s part, saying, “There’s, of course, evidence that the President interacted with his relative’s associates from China, Mexico, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Ukraine.”
Then, getting to the question for Kirby, the reporter asked, “So what do you say to the majority of Americans who believe that the President is himself corrupt?”
Both Kirby and KJP then got involved in responded. Stunned into near-silence by the question, Kirby at first simply said, “Wow.” He then continued to struggle to answer, stammering, “President — the President —”
KJP then cut in to end the Biden corruption part presser before anything slipped out or any other embarrassing questions on the issue were asked, saying, “No, we got to wrap this up.”
Kirby, for his part, at least tried to answer, saying, “The President has spoken to this.” But KJP wasn’t having it, saying, “We got to wrap this up.”
Kirby then continued to give something of a response, saying, “The President has spoken to this, and there’s nothing to these claims. And as for the — the whistleblower issue that you talked about and the document — I believe the FBI has spoken to that, and you’re going to have to go to them on that.”
KJP then made sure that everyone had moved on from the issue, saying, “All right, let’s go.”
