Joe Biden and his cabinet are used to being lobbed softballs from the media. They weren’t prepared for this bloodbath.
And one fiery question sent the White House Press Room into total chaos.
With every passing day, Hunter Biden’s crimes are aired out more and more for everyone to see.
The scariest part is that Joe Biden’s ties to his son’s “business ventures” are getting impossible to deny.
And Biden’s lackeys are reaping the whirlwind from all of the scandal.
Reporters grilled Biden administration officials on Friday following the revelation of a blockbuster WhatsApp chat in which President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, are purportedly shaking down a Chinese businessman.
On Friday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and national security spokesman John Kirby refused to answer reporters’ questions, a day after House Ways and Means Committee chairman Jason Smith (R-MO) released a WhatsApp message obtained by IRS investigators looking into Hunter’s overseas business dealings.
“I’m not going to comment further on this,” Kirby told reporters after he was asked if the message contradicted President Biden’s earlier claims that he and his son did not discuss Hunter’s business dealings. Kirby then abruptly exited the news conference.

For about four minutes, Jean-Pierre stood at the platform and refused to answer questions about Hunter and the WhatsApp message.
“I’m just not going to get into family discussion,” Jean-Pierre said when asked about why Hunter attended a White House state dinner with officials from India on Thursday night.
Other reporters later reiterated Rosen’s inquiry to Kirby, asking Jean-Pierre if she would respond to the issue that the national security spokeswoman had declined to answer.
“Kirby wouldn’t answer James’ question. Are you going to answer the question? It’s not an unreasonable question to ask if the president was involved, as this message seems to suggest, in some sort of coercive conversation for a business dealing by his son. If he wasn’t, maybe you should tell us?” A reporter inquired.
Jean-Pierre continually refused to address the question, directing journalists to the White House counsel’s office and the Department of Justice. She brushed aside reporters’ concerns about her evasions. “It’s not up to you how I answer the question,” Jean-Pierre said.

On Thursday, Chairman Smith presented whistleblower testimony from IRS agents alleging that the Justice Department interfered in the Hunter investigation and is hiding proof of the first son’s wrongdoing.
According to IRS Criminal Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley’s testimony, investigators discovered a July 30, 2017, WhatsApp communication made by Hunter to Henry Zhao, CEO of Harvest Fund Management.
“I am sitting here with my father and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled. According to Shapley’s testimony, Hunter wrote to Zhao, “Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means tonight.”
In a statement to Fox News, Hunter’s attorney did not deny the validity of the WhatsApp communication, but he did suggest that it was misleading or could be a forgery.
“Biased and politically motivated, selective leaks have plagued this matter for years. They are not only irresponsible, they are illegal. A close examination of the document released publicly yesterday by a very biased individual raises serious questions over whether it is what he claims it to be. It is dangerously misleading to make any conclusions or inferences based on this document,” said Hunter’s attorney, Chris Clark.
“The DOJ investigation covered a period which was a time of turmoil and addiction for my client. Any verifiable words or actions of my client in the midst of a horrible addiction are solely his own and have no connection to anyone in his family,” Clark continued.
