President Joe Biden insists Americans aren’t interested in House Republican investigations into his family members, but recent polls suggest he’s wrong.
Biden asserted in an interview with PBS NewsHour’s Judy Woodruff.
Woodruff noted GOP lawmakers’ long-campaign intention to investigate business deals involving Biden’s son, Hunter, and asked his brother, Jim, “How do you plan to deal with that?”
“The public doesn’t pay attention to that,” the president said. “They want these guys to do something.”
“If the only thing they can do is make things about my family, it won’t go very far.”
Biden says Republicans “make things up” about his family’s corrupt foreign business dealings.

Good to see Biden simply surrender his ‘Russian disinformation’ lie and wildly accuse Republicans of making things up.
The validity of both claims is roughly the same, which is to say that there is none.
People want to know if Hunter Biden and James Biden are influencing the name of the president and how exactly they might be involved.

The Political Insider last month reported on an ‘arranged’ call between Joe Biden and his son Hunter regarding a multi-million dollar gas deal with China in an email pulled from the infamous ‘laptop from hell’.

The public may want to know about it.
Along with the famous ‘10% big guy’ email that was reported years ago.
An email obtained by Fox News in 2020 outlined a payment to Biden in a joint venture with CEFC China Energy.
It included a proposed equity split of “20” for “H” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”
Hunter’s former business associate, Tony Bobulinsky, insists the ‘big man’ is a reference to Joe Biden, although that has not been confirmed elsewhere.

Reports surfaced in October that Hunter had received $100 million in investment backing from Elena Baturina, the wife of a billionaire Russian oligarch and former mayor of Moscow.
President Biden has long insisted he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings.
However, all these matters certainly call for investigation.

The public certainly wants to know
While it is irrelevant what the public interest is in such an investigation — corruption requires investigating whether or not people are caught — the basis for Biden’s argument is null and void.
The public certainly wants the Republicans to investigate Hunter, Joe and the family.
Even before the GOP took control of the House of Representatives, a November poll showed that a majority of voters (62%) approved of launching investigations into Hunter’s overseas business dealings.
That number jumped to 72% in a December poll — including majorities among Republicans (88%), independents (74%), and Democrats (54%).
An NBC News poll earlier this month indicated Hunter’s investigation was “most important for House Republicans to pursue.”
Oh, they will certainly pay attention, Mr. President. About the only group of people in the country Don’t Anyone who wants to see an investigation into the Biden family has the last name ‘Biden’.
