President Joe Biden faced questions about his family’s shady business dealing in China during a press conference about UFOs and a Chinese spy balloon that was shot down.
When asked if he was compromised by his family’s business relations in China, Biden responded with, “Give me a break, man,” but did not deny the question.
This is the second time in recent weeks that Biden has faced questions about his family’s business dealings, which House Republicans are investigating.
Last week, he was asked in an interview about the investigations into his family’s business schemes, to which he responded that the public would not pay attention to the GOP probes.
The establishment media has begun to ask more questions about the Biden family’s business dealings since Republicans regained control of the House, specifically the Oversight and Judiciary Committees.
House Republicans are investigating the Biden family business by requesting bank records and communications from Hunter and James Biden to learn if Joe Biden is compromised.
“We can’t fully understand the extent of what these laws need to be until we know the exact amount of money that the Biden family took in, including from the sources,” Comer (R-KY) told Fox News, noting the family has made at least “tens of millions of dollars” from many business deals spanning at least 12 separate nations over the years, including when Joe Biden was vice president. Comer explained:
“The Democrats have been complaining about influence peddling. The Biden family has obviously been influence peddling. So we need to define what is ‘influence peddling.'”
“We need to make stricter ethics laws. We also need to increase disclosure laws for family members doing business overseas with our advisories while they have a relative that serves in the White House,” he added.
Hunter’s business deals are well-documented, including an email from his laptop proposing a distribution of equity in a company created for a joint venture with CEFC China Energy Co. and members of the Chinese Communist Party.
The email referenced “the big guy,” which Bobulinski confirmed was a reference to Joe Biden.
James Biden and Frank Biden, Joe Biden’s brothers, have also been involved in influence peddling.
Frank Biden admitted to doing so while his brother was president.
Reports also surfaced that James Biden secretly negotiated a $140 million settlement deal in 2012 between a US company and the Saudi Arabian government because of his relationship with then-Vice President Joe Biden.
