Watch – Karine Jean-Pierre Said ‘It’s Not Happening’ When Asked About Hunter
Karine Jean-Pierre’s job is to stand in front of the press and answer questions regarding the president and those connected to him. Except this week, there seems to be at least one question that she just won’t answer.
Jean-Pierre was asked this week about a controversial voicemail that President Joe Biden left his son Hunter. But the answer was clearly a no answer. The administration refuses to address the situation.
There is new information that has come from Hunter Biden’s laptop that reveals the president called his son to talk about a New York Times article that focused on Hunter’s business associations with a Chinese oil tycoon.
President Biden leaves a voicemail that said, “Hey pal, it’s Dad, it’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance, just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you. I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance, give me a call, I love you.”
The message on the voicemail seems innocent enough, but the issue is that it contradicts what President Biden has continually claimed. He has said over and over again that he was completely unaware and uninvolved with Hunter’s overseas business dealings. The same dealings that are under a federal investigation.
At the recent White House press conference, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked Jean-Pierre about the voicemail and he noted the contradiction with the president.
“Why is there a voicemail of the President talking to his son about his overseas business dealings if the president has said he’s never spoken to his son about his overseas business dealings?” Doocy asked.
Jean Pierre tried to sidestep the question by simply saying that whatever the president has said is what stands.
“Well, first, I’ll say that what the president said stands. So if he — if that’s what the president said, that is what stands, she said.
“He’s leaving a voicemail about a New York Times article concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings. And it says, ‘I think you’re clear.’ How is that not him talking to his son about his overseas business dealings?” Doocy responded
Jean-Pierre had enough, “We’re not — from this podium, I am not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop,” the press secretary said. “I will — I am not —“
Doocy kept going and asked if she was disputing that it was the president’s voice. She once again shut him down and said that she was not going to talk about alleged information on a laptop.
“It’s not happening,” Jean-Pierre said.
