Biden Refuses To Testify, Complains Instead

Joe Biden will not try to clear his name. The president received an offer earlier in the month from James Comer to testify before the House Oversight Committee in response to his son accidentally saying that the president was more involved in his businesses than initially thought. 

He’s declined. Instead, his lawyer sent a letter complaining about the impeachment investigation into the Biden Family’s influence peddling. 

The Washington Examiner writes:

In a letter sent on Monday, Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president, declined the committee’s invitation and decried the GOP’s impeachment inquiry, which has stalled in recent months, as being a failure

“Your Committee’s purported ‘impeachment inquiry’ has succeeded only in turning up abundant evidence that, in fact, the President has done nothing wrong,” Sauber said in a letter to the committee on Monday.

“Your insistence on peddling these false and unsupported allegations despite ample evidence to the contrary makes one thing about your investigation abundantly clear: The facts do not matter to you,” Sauber added.

He also called for the Republican-led House of Representatives to focus on other matters “rather than continuing to waste time and taxpayer resources on this partisan charade.”

During the recent proceedings, Hunter Biden was present for a deposition that took place in private. However, when given the opportunity to testify in a public hearing, he declined, despite previously expressing his desire to testify publicly rather than behind closed doors.

In March, one of Hunter’s business partners explained to the House Committee that Joe Biden was “the brand.” He was the sole reason Hunter Biden had anyone interested in participating in business with him. 

“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in the Biden family. Like his son, Hunter Biden, President Biden is refusing to testify in public about the Bidens’ corrupt influence peddling,” Comer said in a statement on Monday. “This comes as no surprise since President Biden continues to lie about his relationships with his son’s business partners, even denying they exist when his son said under oath during a deposition that they did.”
