White House insists the president 'was never in business with his son'

 July 25, 2023

While President Joe Biden has long denied having any knowledge of his son's business dealings with foreign actors, the White House appears ready to reverse that position. 

As evidence for this, RedState contributor Nick Arama pointed to a stunning exchange that White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre had with a reporter on Tuesday.

Jean-Pierre: President was "never in business with his son"

The reporter observed that former Hunter Biden associate Devon Archer is set to testify before the House Oversight Committee next week.

It is believed that he will detail some two dozen examples in which the president and his son communicated during business meetings, including excluding via speaker phone.

"I’ve been asked this question a million times. The answer is not going to change. The answer remains the same," Jean-Pierre replied, insisting that the president was "never in business with his son."

Biden has consistently denied knowing anything about Hunter's business

Jean-Pierre's response represents a major change in position, as for years the president has maintained that he never spoke at all about business matters with his son.

Biden told reporters while campaigning in 2019, "I have never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything to do with their business."

"The answer has changed"

He reiterated that message during a Democratic presidential debate, telling CNN host Anderson Cooper, "I never discussed a single thing with my son about anything having to do with Ukraine."

"Now the answer has changed to they were “never in business” because there’s so much evidence that what Biden and his team have previously said about him not speaking to his son about his business is not true," Arama wrote in his article.

"They’ve had to back off that and change their game. So they modified it to this 'he’s always said he was never in business with his son.' What nerve to insist that that’s what they’ve always said," Arama concluded.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
