Biden’s Incoming Press Secretary Says He ‘Will Not Be Discussing’ Investigation Into Hunter With AG Candidates

Incoming White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki indicated President-elect Joe Biden has no plans to discuss the probe into his son, Hunter, with any attorney general candidates.

Fox News’s Chris Wallace asked Psaki during an interview on Sunday whether Biden will promise to allow the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware to finish the investigation and what his thoughts are on President Donald Trump’s efforts to appoint a special counsel to conduct an independent investigation into Hunter Biden.

“He will not be discussing an investigation of his son with any attorney general candidates. He will not be discussing it with anyone he is considering for the role, and he will not be discussing it with a future attorney general,” Psaki said.

She added, “It will be up to the purview of a future attorney general and his administration to determine how to handle any investigation.”

Watch her comments below:

Wallace asked Psaki if Biden believes the investigation into his son’s tax issues is “legitimate.”

“To the credit of Fox, you reported the context of the question accurately, which had nothing to do with an investigation. It was about Hunter being used as a political cudgel in a partisan way and a question to the president-elect about how he would work across the aisle and work with Democrats and Republicans to get things done,” Psaki said.

She made it clear Biden has yet to make a decision about who he is going to nominate for the position.

“He has been emphatic that that person will oversee an independent department,” Psaki explained.

She continued, “He’s looking for somebody of the highest level of integrity, and that person, whomever it is, will be overseeing whatever investigations are happening at the Department of Justice and that’s how it should work, frankly.”

Hunter Biden said in a statement he is taking the investigation “very seriously,” as IJR previously reported.

He added, “I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

During an interview with late-night show host Stephen Colbert earlier this week, Biden said, “We have great confidence in our son.”

He went on, “I am not concerned about any accusations being made against him.”

Biden explained, “It’s used to get to me. I think it’s kind of foul play but look, it is what it is and he’s a grown man, he is the smartest man I know. I mean, from a pure intellectual capacity — and as long as he’s good, we’re good.”

Responses

  1. It would be as wrong for Biden to have ANYTHING to do with Hunters legal issues unless he was ordered by court to do so. Just like it is wrong for Trump to have anything to do with his families legal issues unless he is ordered by a court. In such case either should answer anything asked by such court. This is common sense and ethics, not really my opinion, right?

  2. I am interested in what flavor Ice Cream Joe ate today……is this on the national MSM somewhere?

  3. The trumpsters are so corrupted by their belief in Mafia Don, that everyone who isn’t trump is crooked. Hypocrisy on a large scale.

  4. Great quote…..”he is the smartest man I know”. Obama must be offended and Hunter keeps looking around to see to whom he is referring. Going to be an interesting time. Perhaps Biden will finally wish he wouldn’t have accepted a flawed election.

  5. Prediction: Our next AG will be in the mold of Eric With-Holder, who, along with Loretta ‘Tarmac’ Lynch, spent 8 years looking the other way during the Obama/Biden regime.

    1. LOL….Are you hoping Biden selects another Bill Barr to be his “Roy Cohn” personal defense attorney at taxpayer expense?
      WHAT is it that YOU perceive Sessions, Rosenstein, Whitaker, and Barr prosecuted that Holder and Lynch missed? The Uranium One deal was re-investigated with the SAME RESULTS. Clinton Foundation was investigated with the SAME RESULTS. R’s spent Sept 12th, 2012 until Dec 7th 2016 investigating Benghazi without a single indictment. WHAT did the Trump DOJ find on Benghazi? On the other hand, you stood by and cheered Barr lying to the American people regarding the contents of the Mueller Report–over 140 Trump campaign contacts with Russians AND TEN instances of Obstruction of Justice committed by Trump. Were you thinking it was Obama that Barr was attempting to defend at taxpayer expense in the civil suit for defamation??—That was Trump. Were you thinking it was Holder or Lynch that looked the other way when IG Atkinson made a referral for a criminal investigation of Trump’s phone call to President Zelensky?—No, that was Barr who not only ignored the referral but fired Atkinson.

  6. William, Flynn was indicted for lying to the FBI, not being photographed sitting at the table with Putin. He was given a pass on being an unregistered foreign agent for Turkey. WHAT law was broken if Jen Psaki actually was photographed with a Russian? Will we find it in the enforcement code that Trumpers used to decide using a private server was illegal?

    1. Cult-45 have constantly defined new meanings for words for themselves, so maybe they think that they can redefine laws in the same way for themselves.

  7. Jen Psaki was photographed proudly with the Russian Ambassador wearing a Russian fur cap with the Communist logo…are we to now pretend there was no collusion when Gen. Flynn was arrested for less? Welcome to the Biden Crime Family, its going to be a bumpy ride.

  8. Thats why they should discuss it. Hinters a crook like dear ole dad. IJR. You should be going after hunter just like you did trumps kids. Good for the goose and all. If the msm doesnt run pedo joe thru the ringer then you are all a$$ kissin dirt bags.
