White House Refuses to Rule Out Joe Biden Pardoning Son Hunter
Hunter and James Biden both under federal investigations over foreign business deals
The White House is refusing to rule out that Democrat Joe Biden will issue pardons for his son and brother, both of whom are under federal criminal investigations over their shady foreign business dealings.
Federal investigations into son Hunter Biden and brother James Biden are still ongoing.
When asked about a potential pardon during the daily press briefing, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield dodged the matter.
“That’s not a hypothetical I’m going to entertain,” she said.
“I don’t have anything to add from this podium.”
Bedingfield was reluctant to address any aspect of the Hunter Biden story after multiple pro-Biden left-wing media outlets confirmed reports about Hunter Biden's notorious "Laptop from Hell."
When asked additional questions about Hunter and James Biden, Bedingfield would only reply, “I don’t have anything further to add from this podium.”

CNN reported that the investigation has “gained steam” as a growing number of witnesses are scheduled to testify in the case.
The Washington Post confirmed reports from other media outlets that Biden was paid nearly $5 million by the CEFC China Energy conglomerate.
The payment was confirmed despite Joe Biden denying allegations during the campaign that his son made any money in China.
“My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China,” Biden said during the third presidential debate moderated by NBC’s Kristen Welker.
Bedingfield said the White House stood by Biden’s claim, despite reporting proving it false.
