Jonathan Turley, a Fox News contributor, said that the testimony of Devon Archer, a former Hunter Biden associate, on then-Vice President Biden’s involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s business connections could lead to a corruption scandal of historic proportions.
Turley said it is hard to believe that Biden would not know what his son was doing when he flew to China with him and called business partners. He also pointed to emails that refer to a 10 percent cut going to the then vice president, as well as Hunter Biden’s own complaints about taking money to pay his father’s bills.
In an email to a family member, Hunter Biden stated that nearly half his income was going to his father, Joe Biden.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer said that Archer’s testimony confirmed that Biden “lied to the American people” when he said he did not know about his son’s business dealings. Archer noted that Hunter put his father on speakerphone while meeting with business partners at least 20 times and that Biden was used to “sell the brand.”
These details add to the credibility of Archer’s testimony, and they suggest that Biden may have been more involved in his son’s business dealings than he has previously acknowledged.
These allegations are serious, and they could have a significant impact on Biden’s presidency. It is essential to let the investigation continue and to get to the bottom of what happened.
Archer, Hunter Biden, associates from Burisma, and foreign oligarchs dined with Joe Biden on two occasions at Café Milano, a high-end restaurant in Washington. Archer confirmed that these dinners took place once in 2014 and then again in 2015.
The dinner in 2014 was a birthday celebration, though Archer confessed he doesn’t recall the specific conversation that transpired during the meal.
“We all gathered for dinner, enjoyed our meal, and casually conversed about various topics like the weather and global affairs before everyone departed,” Archer recounted.
The second dinner was associated with the World Food Program USA, an organization where Hunter held the position of board chairman.
The investigation into these allegations is ongoing, and it will be essential to see what further evidence is uncovered.
