Biden’s Past Comments Come Back To Haunt Him, And Possibly Destroy Hunter

In recent developments surrounding the ongoing controversy involving President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, the White House’s response has raised questions about transparency and potential obstruction of an investigation. It all began when Hunter Biden issued a statement and defied a congressional subpoena, prompting concerns about his father’s involvement and whether he had advised his son not to testify.
 

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre admitted that he was “familiar” with Hunter Biden’s statement, which naturally led to inquiries about President Biden’s role and any advice he may have given to his son regarding the investigation. If the president had indeed advised his son not to cooperate, this could potentially be seen as an attempt to obstruct the investigation.

Reporters pressed Jean-Pierre on President Biden’s prior comments about defying subpoenas, but she avoided addressing the issue directly. However, it is essential to examine what President Biden had previously stated on the matter. In October 2021, he expressed support for holding those who defied subpoenas from the Jan. 6 Committee accountable. When asked if they should be prosecuted by the Justice Department, he responded affirmatively.

Following his own words, one could argue that his son, Hunter Biden, should now face prosecution for defying the House Oversight Committee’s subpoena. However, the president’s current silence on the matter raises concerns about his apparent change in stance.

Additionally, Representative Jamie Raskin (D-MD) stated that President Biden supported the committee’s aggressive pursuit of testimonies and documents through subpoenas. This statement contradicts the president’s current silence and lack of condemnation for his son’s actions.

The situation highlights the need for consistency and transparency in addressing such matters, especially when they involve individuals in prominent positions. President Biden’s shift in attitude towards subpoenas and his silence regarding his son’s actions have raised questions about hypocrisy and favoritism. As the controversy unfolds, it remains to be seen whether the president will provide a justification for the apparent contradictions in his stance.
