Hunter allies wary of White House defense of Biden family business
Hunter Biden’s allies reportedly don’t trust the White House to defend Hunter and the family’s business associates from the revelations uncovered by the House Oversight Committee.
The White House’s “paranoid” public relations strategy, spearheaded by President Joe Biden’s senior adviser Anita Dunn, is aimed at shielding the Biden administration from the Biden family, according to Puck News’ Tara Palmeri. The White House’s stance is against the interests of Hunter, who is the Biden family’s best-known associate due to his mistake of dumping his ‘laptop from hell’ in a repair shop in the city. Delaware.
“Judging by how they handled communications and PR efforts during and after the docs scandal and the drip of endless cycles, it’s no wonder Hunter has no trust them,” said a source involved in Hunter’s legal defense. relationship to the Joe Biden classified documents scandal. “Their response was baffling and uninspiring.”
“It makes sense that Hunter would want his own press apparatus when the White House can barely react to its own crisis without pissing off the press, donors and Democratic members of Congress,” the source said.
Since January, Hunter has hired at least four top lawyers to conduct investigations into Hunter and the Biden family business. The team’s unity did not last long. In March, Hunter’s criminal defense attorney, Joshua Levy, left after “unease and dissent” plagued the legal defense team.
As Hunter’s team scrambles to defend Biden’s most infamous associate, it appears one of the tactics the White House is deploying is trying to ignore the House Oversight Committee’s release of bank documents. damning — information Joe Biden denied but Hunter confirmed.
“Look, I’m — I’m just not going to answer this from here,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Wednesday. “And I don’t even know where to begin to answer that question because, again, it’s been lies, lies and inaccuracies for two years.”

A second White House strategy appears to allow the establishment media to defend themselves, a strategy the media has deployed since Breitbart News’ Emma-Jo Morris broke the initial story of “Laptop from Hell” at the New York Post. THE washington post Philip Bump’s article is the latest example of this approach:
Consider his committee’s recent coup: the revelation that another member of Biden’s family received payments from a business partner, Rob Walker, who received money from a Chinese corporation. Comer and the committee’s Republican majority produced a four-page memo containing the names of the LLCs and dollar signs followed by various numbers and several commas. It included plenty of intonation about what the committee still hoped to learn — and, unbeknownst to a casual observer — an overhaul of much previously published financial information, including from the Washington Post.
The fact that Joe Biden’s daughter-in-law, Hallie Biden, received two payments in 2017 from Walker has become the focus of several New York Post articles, heavily invested in Hunter Biden stories since October 2020. But it doesn’t there is no explanation for the payments to Hallie Biden. . Despite the memo’s efforts to suggest that the payments were downstream of China’s money, the memo also fails to address the fact that one of the payments to Hallie Biden preceded this Chinese money transfer. But, of course, a committee aide who spoke to the New York Post suggested that the money coming before the transfer raises “many questions” in itself – since the purpose is to raise questions, not answer them.
As Breitbart News reported on Sunday, the establishment media has consistently defended the Biden family business, calling the findings “debunked,” “false” and “savage.” But the tactics opposing the committee’s investigation of the Bidens will continue.
According to House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY), the recent trove of bank documents that show Biden family members received $1.3 million from China is just the latest. first of many revelations. “One of the things that all of our whistleblowers told us,” Comer told Just the News, “is that they were all paying — through these LLCs — for things for Joe Biden. So it’s very curious, you know.
“Biden was in the game,” Comer said. “But what we want to know is that he benefited personally? We know his family did. But did he benefit personally, and that’s what we’re investigating.
