On Monday, House Oversight Chairman James Comer publicly released subpoenaed bank records indicating Joe Biden had received direct monthly payments from Hunter Biden’s business entity, Owasco PC.
This prompted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre to leave the press briefing room abruptly following a reporter’s inquiry.
Evidence of these payments was included with the documents, further clarifying that Hunter Biden’s investment vehicle Owasco had transferred funds directly to Joe Biden himself.
Joe Biden has consistently maintained that he was not involved in any of his son Hunter’s overseas business dealings and has never taken a dime from China.
Recently, Real Clear reporter Philip Wegmann asked Karine Jean-Pierre about the newly released bank records from Chairman Comer.
“The White House has said repeatedly that the President and his son were never in business together. They’ve said that repeatedly also in this room. According to bank records obtained by the House Oversight Committee, though, one of Hunter Biden’s businesses Owasco PC set up direct payments to the President. Did the President accept payment? And why would there be such an arrangement if they were never business together? Or, if there was a wall of separation, as the President has previously said?” Philip Wegmann asked KJP.
Karine Jean-Pierre dodged the question and walked out of the briefing room.
“So, I have to be clear with you. I have not seen that report, so I would have to refer you to my colleague’s over at the White House counsel’s office on that particular question,” KJP said as she closed her binder.
