President Joe Biden or his communications team have flatly denied and deflected questions about involvement in Hunter’s corrupt family business at least seven times.
Despite the deviations and claims that Biden had no role in the family business, 12 cases point to Joe and his team lying. More recently, White House visitor records reported that Joe Biden met Hunter’s business partner in 2010. Twenty-six additional records show Hunter’s business partner visited the White House to meet with staff by Joe Biden.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed the ‘visits’ as being ‘over a decade ago’ but did not deny Hunter’s business partner actually met Joe Biden . “I really don’t have any more details or information about them,” she said.
Below are seven times Joe Biden or his team denied or deflected Joe Biden’s involvement in Hunter’s family business:
