Biden Taunts Republicans Over Hunter Investigation
During a press conference on Wednesday, President Biden was asked about the Republicans potentially investigating his son Hunter if they gain control of the House over Hunter’s foreign business dealings while his father was vice president during the Obama administration.
Biden responded by wishing Republicans “lots of luck,” and referred to calls for his impeachment as “almost comedy.”
“Republicans have made it clear that if they do take control of the House, that they want to launch rapid investigations on day one into your handling of Afghanistan, the border; they want to look into some of your cabinet officials, they want to investigate you, they may even want to investigate your son,” a reporter said
“What’s your message to Republicans who are considering investigating your family and particularly your son Hunter’s business deals?” the reporter asked.
“Lots of luck in your senior year, as my coach used to say,” Biden replied. “Look, I think the American public wants us to move on and get things done for them.”
“I heard,” he continued “that Republicans were saying that the former president said ‘How many times are you gonna impeach Biden?’ … I think the American people will look at all of that for what it is, it’s just almost comedy.”
“Look, I can’t control what they’re gonna do,” he concluded. “All I can do is continue to try to make life better for the American people.”
Allegations of Hunter Biden using his father’s position as vice president to leverage in his foreign business dealings have been supported by the contents of his notorious stolen laptop.
President Biden is reportedly worried about potential investigations into him and his son. In a recent interview on CNN, former Democratic senator Al Franken said Biden was worried and that “there will be hearings, there will be investigations, they’ll investigate Hunter Biden, it’ll be very toxic.”
