I’ve seen evil snatch victory from the jaws of defeat too many times before to be overly optimistic. Still…
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, for her part, moved the goalposts. For four years, Biden and his minions have categorically denied he had any knowledge of his son’s business affairs. Asked if the president still maintains that position on Monday, she replied, “I’ve been asked this question a million times, the answer is not going to change, the answer remains the same: the president was never in business with his son.”
But Jean-Pierre wasn’t asked if Biden was in business with his son. She was asked if the president will continue to deny any knowledge of Hunter’s overseas business activity. And she knows that. Apparently, the administration’s spinners thought this was a smart way to dodge the question. They were wrong.
But the Biden shuck-and-jive may be facing some very tough sledding.
If he tells lawmakers what many expect him to say, Joe Biden’s plausible deniability is history. Sources told the New York Post they expect Archer will testify that “Hunter Biden would dial in his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, on speakerphone into meetings with his overseas business partners.”
… Although there are many die-hard Democrats who will stick with Biden no matter what evidence is presented to them, revelations of this magnitude would register with independents.
