President Joe Biden reportedly gave the impression that he was standing by claims he made about his son and foreign business transactions during the 2020 presidential campaign.
On Monday, while attending a gathering at the White House, Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich approached the president as he walked by.
“Did you lie about never speaking to Hunter about his business deals?” Heinrich asked the President.
“No” Biden answered abruptly before unceremoniously walking away and refusing to answer any follow up questions.
Hunter Biden, one of the Biden family members, has long been charged with using the Biden family name to get rich contracts with foreign merchants.
The claims gained new prominence this week after shocking information showed that the president’s and his family’s involvement in international affairs may be considerably closer than Biden has recognized.
On Thursday, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Jason Smith (R-MO), made whistleblower testimony from IRS agents public.

These IRS officials claim that the Justice Department has interfered in their investigation into Hunter and is hiding evidence of the first son’s wrongdoings.
Hunter sent Henry Zhao, a manager at the Chinese energy giant CEFC, a WhatsApp message on July 30, 2017, according to IRS whistleblowers who testified before Congress.
After the communication was purportedly received, less than ten days later, CEFC accounts sent more than $5 million to accounts linked to Hunter Biden.
