President Joe Biden has reacted to charges made by Republicans that they had proof that the Biden family received indirect money from a Chinese corporation.
It occurred on Friday evening when an irate President Biden responded to the International Criminal Court issuing an arrest warrant for Russian President Vladimir Putin as a reporter sneaked in a question regarding his family’s business dealings.
A question about the International Criminal Court’s issuance of an arrest order for Vladimir Putin.
THE PRESIDENT: I believe it is justified. But, it is not acknowledged worldwide by us as well. Still, I believe it makes a compelling case.
Q Could you give us your reaction to the International Criminal Court issuing an arrest warrant for Vladimir Putin?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, I think it’s justified. But the question is, it’s not recognized internationally by us either. But I think it makes a very strong point.
Q Are you confident the bank, sir — are you confident the bank crisis has calmed down?
THE PRESIDENT: Yes.
Q Will you give us a sense of your reaction to President Putin meeting with President Xi next week?
THE PRESIDENT: Well, we’ll see when that meeting takes place. That’s (inaudible).
Q Any reaction to the House GOP memo about your family dealings, sir?
THE PRESIDENT: My family dealings?
Q Yes, your — (inaudible) that Hunter Biden’s business associate sent over a million dollars to three of your family members. Any reaction to that?
THE PRESIDENT: That’s not true.
Q Should Putin be tried for war crimes? (Inaudible.)
THE PRESIDENT: He’s clearly committed war crimes.

Fox News reported that House Republicans have been granted access to President Joe Biden’s banking records, which may contain transactions involving his son Hunter Biden. Rep. James Comer of Tennessee, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, made the announcement during a Tuesday interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News.
“We just got word that Treasury said they will give us access,” the representative said.
The Biden administration has yet to confirm such a move. News of the agreement came hours after Comer’s Oversight Committee subpoenaed more bank records from the Bank of America earlier Monday. The subpoenas targeted ‘all financial records’ from three of Hunter Biden’s business associates dating from Jan. 20, 2009, to the present,” Fox News reported.
“The Oversight Committee has subpoenaed and obtained financial records related to the Biden family’s influence peddling,” a committee spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “These documents solidify our understanding of several areas of concern and have opened new avenues of investigation about the Biden family’s business schemes.”
This comes after Ohio Representative Jim Jordan, a Republican, threatened this week to investigate the Bidens.
Jordan is reiterating his promise to pursue intrusive investigations against Joe and Hunter Biden, as well as the FBI, in response to Democrats on the panel’s latest farce surrounding an essential hearing that pertains to a crucial national problem.
The Ohio Republican criticized committee Democrats for failing to attend a border security hearing in Yuma, Arizona, late last month, despite the fact that millions of individuals have unlawfully entered the country and that fentanyl imported from Mexico kills tens of thousands of Americans annually.
House Democrats claimed, “there was no consultation with Judiciary Democrats, many of whom have already committed to attending other bipartisan congressional delegation trips.”
“Instead of focusing on real solutions to a complicated problem, Judiciary Republicans will once again not hear from any federal government witnesses at their hearing, further cementing this hearing as a brazen act of political grandstanding,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) said. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA), added, “As a result, Democrats, who have been to the border regularly the last few years, will not attend next week’s performative hearing.”
Jordan, however, countered.
“It’s a shame that not one Democrat member of Congress would join us on this trip, despite having weeks of advance notice,” Jordan said. “It’s disappointing, but it’s not surprising.”
“I would argue it’s not a stunt,” he added. “My guess is our witnesses wouldn’t call it a stunt. What we’ve learned today from them, what we’ve seen last night on the border.”
