WH Scrambles and Flees When Grilled About Subpoenas That Just Went Out to Biden Family

Over the weekend, House Oversight Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) had a big announcement to make  â€” that subpoenas were imminent for members of the Biden family, and he indicated that this week was going to be  a "big week." Comer explained in that interview how Joe Biden benefitted directly from the family influence peddling scheme.

Looks like Comer made good on that promise on Wednesday, as he signed off on subpoenas for multiple members of the Biden family, including Hunter Biden and James Biden, as well as Biden family business associate Rob Walker. 

They also went out to some of the other family members, including James Biden's wife Sara, Hunter Biden's ex (and his brother Beau's widow), Hallie Biden (whose account received some of the payouts), her sister Elizabeth Secundy (with whom Hunter also had a relationship), and Hunter's present wife, Melissa Cohen. 

So reporters were chomping at the bit to ask White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre what Joe Biden's take was on all this. Usually, she plays this game of trying to fluff questions off to someone else, in this case, the private attorneys in the matter. But then she also gave an answer that beggars all the facts and which no one with a brain cell is going to believe.

"This is an investigation that has been going on for a year now and has turned up zero evidence of wrongdoing by the President, uh, because there is none," Jean-Pierre claimed. She said the Republicans continued to "double-down" on a baseless case against Biden. 

"Zero evidence" — if zero evidence means lots of evidence, then sure.

A reporter asks if KJP thinks that Hunter Biden should comply with the subpoena. That's when she beat it out of there as fast as she could. I don't think I've ever seen her move so fast. 

The problem with KJP's response is that it ignores the mountains of evidence of influence peddling, including the $240,00 in payouts to Joe Biden. Comer explains those payouts during this interview with Newsmax.

Comer said everything that Tony Bobulinski has said about the Bidens checked out. 

So KJP can keep saying "zero evidence." She can run out of the room and avoid questions. 

But she can't talk her away around the bank documents, the messages, and the other evidence that backs up the case. And with the subpoenas, there's going to be more coming.
