Hunter Biden rips Republicans probing family's alleged corruption

Hunter Biden long has been a source of scandal for Joe Biden.

There was that million-dollar payment from Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, for him to be on its board.

There was that time Joe Biden told Ukrainian officials to fire a prosecutor investigating Burisma, or else.

There were all those scandals for the Biden family revealed on a laptop Hunter Biden abandoned at a repair shop.

There's evidence of millions of dollars coming to a long list of family members from sources that are unfriendly to America, all apparently for access to Joe Biden, in a massive "influence peddling" scheme.

There are the sales of his amateur art pieces, for tens of thousands of dollars.

There's evidence of his recruiting his father to have conversations with his various business associates. Over and over.

That's why House members are investigating the evidence as possible corruption that could be used in an impeachment proceeding against Joe Biden.

But all those claims are lies, from all the witnesses the House has heard so far. He's the one telling the truth, Hunter Biden scolded House members on Wednesday. And they should listen to him and drop their "sham" investigation.

He appeared before House committees reviewing the evidence against Joe Biden in a closed-door hearing.

What was available immediately was his opening statement:

He said the House is working on a "baseless and destructive political charade."

"You have wasted valuable time and resources attacking me and my family for your own political gain when you should be fixing the real problems in this country that desperately need your attention," it said.

He basically told House members that everyone else they've heard from about the Biden scandals lied, and he's the one telling the truth on all the issue.

A report at The Gateway Pundite said Hunter Biden claimed he "did not involve my father in my businesses."

His testimony came during a private session of the House Oversight and Judiciary committees.

"I am here today to provide the Committees with the one uncontestable fact that should end the false premise of this inquiry: I did not involve my father in my business. Not while I was a practicing lawyer, not in my investments or transactions domestic or international, not as a board member, and not as an artist. Never.

"You read this fact in the many letters that have been sent to you over the last year as part of your so-called impeachment investigation. You heard this fact when I said it weeks ago, standing outside of this building. You heard this fact from a parade of other witnesses – former colleagues and business partners of mine, including my uncle – who have testified before you in similar proceedings. And now, today, you hear this fact directly from me," he claimed.

The report noted, however, that Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s longtime friend and business associate, earlier testified to a list of takeaways, including:

  • "When Joe Biden was Vice President of the United States, he joined Hunter Biden’s dinners with his foreign business associates in person or by speakerphone over 20 times.
  • "Devon Archer testified that the value of adding Hunter Biden to Burisma’s board was 'the brand' and confirmed that then-Vice President Joe Biden was 'the brand' and that the 20 phone calls were to sell 'the brand.'
  • "Devon Archer admitted that 'Burisma would have gone out of business if 'the brand' had not been attached to it.' Because of the Bidens’ involvement, people would have been intimidated to mess with Burisma legally.
  • "In December 2015, Mykola Zlochevsky, the owner of Burisma, and Vadym Pozharski, an executive of Burisma, placed constant pressure on Hunter Biden to get help from D.C. regarding the Ukrainian prosecutor, Viktor Shokin. Shokin was investigating Burisma for corruption.
  • "Hunter Biden, along with Zlochevsky and Pozharski, 'called D.C.' to discuss the matter. Biden, Zlochevsky, and Pozharski stepped away to make the call. This raises concerns that Hunter Biden was in violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.
  • "Joe Biden was dialed into a dinner in Paris with a French energy company and in China with Jonathan Li, the CEO of BHR. Then-VP Biden also had coffee with Li in Beijing and even wrote a letter of recommendation for college for Li’s daughter."
  • And more.

A commentary by constitutional expert Jonathan Turley noted the testimony being delivered, and said, "This is a moment that has been building for years. After committing open contempt of Congress with a sensational press conference outside of Congress, Hunter is facing a target-rich environment for investigators who have detailed millions that allegedly went to him and his family members from foreign sources in China, Russia, Ukraine, and other countries."

He said the testimony will be spun to "whip wildly" between "Hunter the globe-trotting business genius" and "Hunter the blacked out junkie."

He explained what likely will have to come out are answers to several questions.

The first: "Did Joe Biden know about his business dealings?"
