Karine Jean-Pierre Snaps When Pressed About Hunter Biden

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre became visibly agitated Thursday during a press briefing when a reporter questioned her about President Biden's alleged "lying" regarding his past engagements with his son Hunter's business partners. She firmly stated there was "no evidence" of the president's wrongdoing.

Additionally, Jean-Pierre expressed frustration towards House Republicans regarding their decision to initiate an official impeachment inquiry against Biden. She accused them of "wasting their time." The contentious moment arose when New York Post reporter Steven Nelson inquired about the reasons behind Biden's frequent interactions with his family's business contacts, which played a part in sparking the inquiry.

"What we're seeing from House Republicans is wasted time. And it is certainly, you know, a baseless political slant. That's what we're seeing. And they're leaving. House Republicans are leaving this week to go, you know, enjoy a nice holiday. Right? As most Americans should. But what happened to the funding to Ukraine?" Jean-Pierre responded.

She enumerated various policy issues, such as border security and the possibility of a government shutdown next year, while asserting that Republicans had not contributed to assisting Democrats in tackling these challenges.

"There's been zero evidence, zero evidence. You can ask me about engagement and what the president has done with his family in conversation. But there's no evidence," Jean-Pierre said.

Nelson tried to interject, but Jean-Pierre interrupted him.

"Wait, wait. But there's no evidence. There is no evidence that the president has done wrongdoing. There's none. Absolutely none. None. And that is just a fact. You've heard it from Republicans themselves. So they're wasting their time. Instead of doing the work on behalf of the American people, they go after the president's family. But that's a waste of time," she said.

Nelson pointed out a straightforward rebuttal to her statement, highlighting that evidence existed demonstrating Biden's interactions with those associates and suggesting that he was "lying" about it.

"The president is not lying about anything as it relates to what House Republicans are trying to do. It is baseless. It is a political stunt. And it has not proven that the president has done anything wrong, anything wrong. And so they are wasting their time. They are wasting the American people's time," Jean-Pierre fired back.

"What they should be doing is the things that I just listed. They're going to go home, but they haven't taken care of what— We need to make sure that we are helping Ukraine. There's going to be potentially a shutdown next month. They have done nothing, nothing to avert that shutdown," she said before moving on to another reporter.

Last week, during a press briefing, Biden was questioned about his involvement with "so many" foreign business contacts of his son and brother. He refuted any such interactions, in spite of existing contrary evidence.

"I'm not going to comment. I did not, and it's just a bunch of lies," Biden replied. "They're lies. I did not. They're lies."

Reacting to President Biden's statements, one of Hunter's past business partners spoke to Fox News Digital, dismissing Biden's claims as "complete malarkey" and stated there is "plenty of evidence" contradicting his denial.
