In a staunch defense against allegations tied to his family’s business engagements, President Joe Biden vehemently denied any misconduct as the House of Representatives contemplates initiating an impeachment inquiry. The president refuted claims of impropriety, characterizing them as unequivocal falsehoods, in a statement to the press on Wednesday.
The White House has consistently maintained that President Biden’s actions have been within legal boundaries. The Office of the General Counsel emphasized this stance with an extensive 18-page document responding to the inquiries conducted by House Republicans.
Sharon Yang, a spokesperson for the administration, provided an update on the extensive cooperation the White House has shown towards the ongoing investigations. According to Yang, the extensive volume of documents and records handed over, along with numerous hours of witness interviews and access to sensitive law enforcement information, have not substantiated the allegations against President Biden. Instead, she asserts that they have repeatedly discredited the accusations.
This firm rebuttal from the president came as a response to a question about a recent Associated Press poll, which suggested a significant portion of the public harbors doubts about the legality or ethicality of the Biden family’s business activities, including those involving his son, Hunter Biden.
The White House has urged House Republicans to shift their attention away from the president’s family and towards issues directly affecting American households. Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre emphasized last week that the focus should be on the American people’s concerns and needs, rather than the personal affairs of the President’s family.
