If you hadn’t figured out already, Hunter Biden is in a bit of trouble. And thanks to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, his father could be, too.
Now, of course, both Hunter and Joe Biden have actually been facing some issues for a while now. Thanks to a Republican-led House of Representatives, there are now multiple investigations into what is being called the Biden crime family.
Hunter stupidly made the whole thing worse for himself on Wednesday when he refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee for a private testimony. Despite being subpoenaed to show, the younger Biden made a stage of “Senate Swamp,” as it is called, making a very public denial that he would not be attending the ordered hearing.
Hell, he even had the guts (and ignorance) to ask ‘What are they afraid of?” referring, of course, to the House GOP who are leading the investigation.
Naturally, blatantly disobeying a federal order is nothing to sweep under the rug. Plus, it certainly makes it look as though Biden is trying to hide something.
But then, Hunter’s father, Joe, was brought into the mess later that same day.
Unsurprisingly, press secretary KJP was asked about Hunter’s dramatic briefing during a press conference. And it is her response that could have the elder Biden even more of a jam.
Along with the usual things she says about Hunter, such as him being a “private citizen” and that his parents “are proud of him continuing to rebuild his life,” she also seemed to implicate that the elder Biden and the President of the United States knew about Hunter’s decision to defy the subpoena. And neither said or did nothing to stop him.
The comment, of course, came in between a bunch of the aforementioned rehashed phrases. But it’s there.
“The president was certainly familiar with what his son was going to say.”
So, POTUS aided and abetted a federal crime? Let’s just say this doesn’t look good. And it’s certainly the last thing either Biden probably needs right now.
