Biden Bristles at Peter Doocy’s ‘Lousy’ Question – Watch
President Joe Biden lashed out at a journalist who asked him about claims that he talked about business with his son Hunter‘s associates.
Peter Doocy, Fox News White House correspondent, caught up with the president at an event on Wednesday, and he was willing to focus on the issue of the Biden family’s financial entanglements. It won’t be long before these issues likely lead to an impeachment inquiry.
“There’s this testimony now where one of your son’s former business associates is claiming that you were on speakerphone a lot with them talking business? Is that what …” Doocy said before Biden interjected.
“I never talked business with anybody,” Biden shot back. “I knew you’d have a lousy question.” Asked why it was a “lousy question,” the president added: “Because it’s not true!”
Devon Archer, a former business associate of Hunter, recently gave testimony to the House Oversight Committee, and a lightly redacted transcript was released last week.
The new information revealed that Hunter Biden put his father on speaker phone roughly 20 times during meetings with business associates, according to Archer. He said these calls were “signal enough to be powerful” despite the conversations sticking to casual topics such as the weather or fishing. Archer also said that President Biden attended some dinners with his son’s foreign business associates.
Joe Biden claimed to have never spoken to Hunter about his business dealings, a claim that was challenged by another one of the first son’s former business associates, Tony Bobulinski. He came forward in the final weeks of the 2020 campaign to say he had “firsthand” knowledge that the assertion was untrue.
In a section called “The Biden White House’s Attempt to Move the Goalposts Shows They Have No Answers,” the memo said: “The White House’s latest claim that the ‘President was not in business with his son’ is a marked departure from previous attempts to counter the Committee’s investigation. President Biden and White House spokespersons previously stated that the President had no knowledge of his son’s business and did not discuss business with his son.”
