Hunter Biden’s former business partner Devon Archer told the House Oversight Committee on Monday that Hunter and his father, President Joe Biden, spoke on more than 20 calls about Hunter’s foreign business deals.
According to committee member Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Archer’s testimony was “extremely damning” and revealed “the Bidens were in the actual business of influence peddling.”
“We have Devon Archer coming out and telling the truth that Hunter Biden and Joe Biden spoke over 20 times about his business deals, not about the weather, not about what was for lunch, about his business deals,” Greene told the Daily Mail.
Democrats insisted that while the president was on calls with Hunter Biden, they did not discuss any business and instead discussed things like “the weather.”
“The witness indicated that Hunter spoke to his father every day, and approximately 20 times over the course of 10 year relationship, Hunter may have put his father on the phone with any number of different people, and they never once spoke about any business dealings,” Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) said.
“As he described it, it was all casual conversation, niceties, the weather, ‘What’s going on?’” he added. “There wasn’t a single conversation about any of the business dealings that Hunter had.”
The House Judiciary GOP mocked attempts to downplay the revelations, tweeting, “Democrats: ‘Yes. Joe Biden talked to Hunter’s business partners.’ Also Democrats: ‘But we super promise that they only talked about the weather.'”
Recent IRS whistleblower testimony also revealed that the Department of Justice blocked investigators from collecting evidence relating to President Joe Biden’s alleged participation in his son Hunter’s business dealings.
In previous testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee, whistleblower Joseph Zeigler said U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and the DOJ interfered with important facets of the IRS’ investigation into Hunter Biden, including agents’ apparent refusal to look into a WhatsApp message sent by Hunter to a Chinese Communist Party-linked business man.
