James Biden ‘contradicted’ himself during testimony on brother’s involvement in family business: GOP lawmakers

On Wednesday, members of the Republican Party accused James Biden of contradicting himself when testifying about his brother’s alleged business dealings with the family.

The brother of the president initially stated that he was not a part of a deal with his nephew Hunter Biden and business colleagues Rob Walker, Tony Bobulinski, and James Gilliar, according to a source who was aware of the encounter.
However, when Biden was shown an agreement that contained his signature, he changed his narrative and stated that he did not remember signing the agreement, according to the source.



After the interview, Representative Andy Biggs, a Republican from Arizona, addressed the media and stated that he found it “interesting” and that Vice President Biden had “contradicted himself.”

House Representative Matt Gaetz, a Republican from Florida, came to the same conclusion. He told reporters, “Let me say this. As a result, there are a great number of statements made by Mr. Biden that are directly refuted by records.
Following James Biden’s voluntary private interview on Capitol Hill, which was conducted as part of the impeachment investigation being conducted by House Republicans into his brother, President Joe Biden, the members have made their views.




 

“I have had a 50-year career in a variety of business ventures. Joe Biden has never had any involvement or any direct or indirect financial interest in those activities,” the president’s younger brother said. “None.”

The interview with both Republican and Democratic staff as well as lawmakers lasted more than eight hours. During several breaks, Republicans came out and told reporters, without citing details, that James Biden’s responses contradicted his opening statement and that he had made efforts to avoid directly answering investigators’ questions.

The interview with James Biden was the latest in a series that GOP lawmakers have conducted recently as they seek to rebuild momentum for an impeachment process surrounding the Biden family’s overseas finances that has stalled in recent months.

Wednesday’s testimony comes after a central claim of the GOP investigation was undermined by federal prosecutors, who last week indicted an FBI informant who claimed there was a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme involving the president, his son Hunter, and a Ukrainian energy company.



But Republicans argue that the informant was just one part of their broader investigation and say they intend to push ahead. “It doesn’t change the fundamental facts,” Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said.

The impeachment inquiry, which began in September under the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, has included the recent depositions of several former Biden family associates.
