White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre avoided a query on President Joe Biden's involvement in the Biden family business on Tuesday. The White House has previously rejected Biden's involvement.
“The House Oversight Committee is laying out their new investigations, and they claim to have evidence that Joe Biden lied to the American people about his involvement in his family’s business schemes,” Fox News’s Peter Doocy prefaced according to Breitbart News. “Did he?”
By claiming that Republicans are neglecting their promise to lower Joe Biden's skyrocketing inflation and are instead concentrating on the Biden family company, Jean-Pierre sidestepped the topic.
Nine investigations against the Biden family business have been started by House Republicans because of suspected crimes such as wire fraud, tax evasion, and money laundering.
“They don’t want to focus on the American people,” Jean-Pierre said. “They want to focus on political division.”
“They want to focus on something that the American people do not want to see,” she claimed.
According to recent research, the majority of voters want the investigation of the Biden family business.
The inquiry was well-received by 62% of respondents, including 42% who strongly approved. 34 percent of respondents were opposed.
According to additional polls, 58% of people think Joe Biden has been involved in his family's business. Sixty percent of respondents agree that Hunter Biden sold the president "influence and access."
At least 17 occasions, including pictures of Joe and Hunter Biden meeting with business associates and a message from Joe Biden to Hunter regarding a Chinese energy deal, were covered by Breitbart News in July.

“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you,” Joe Biden said in a voicemail in 2018.
“I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance give me a call, I love you,” he concluded.
