On Wednesday President Biden had an interview with PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff in which he dismissed the House Republicans’ plans to investigate the Biden family members and their business. He continued by saying that the public had no interest in this probe.
Woodruff asked Biden about his opinion about the GOP investigating both his son Hunter Biden and potentially his brother James Biden’s finances. In response to the question, Biden said that he did not believe the public would pay any attention to these investigations. He continued by noting that all they are trying to do is “makeup things about my family.” He argued that this was unlikely to “go very far.”
House Republicans have been very vocal about their intentions of investigating Biden’s family and have frequently claimed that Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, had used his father’s position and the family name in order to build their wealth and influence.
The House Oversight and Accountability Committee’s website in their landing page has information about the “Biden Family Investigation” which talks about how Chairman James Comer (Ky.) and other Republicans are looking into the “Biden family’s domestic and international business dealings” to determine whether any of the activities taken on by the Biden family could have compromised the nation’s security.
On Wednesday the committee held one of its first hearings with former Twitter executives about the attempts to suppress the New York Post story regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop ahead of the 2020 election.
