James Biden Defends Joe

(5MinNewsBreak.com) – Trying to portray his brother as an innocent man with no knowledge of his family’s secretive deals, James Biden claimed Joe Biden did not have any involvement with his or Hunter Biden’s business ventures.

During a conversation with House lawmakers as part of an impeachment inquiry against Joe, James was questioned over eight hours on whether Joe used his influence for personal gain.

James denied that Joe was involved in the family business, stating:

“I have had a 50-year career in a variety of business ventures. Joe Biden has never had any involvement or any direct or indirect financial interest in those activities. None. I never asked my brother to take any official action on behalf of me, my business associates, or anyone else.”

However, Republicans revealed that James contradicted his words according to the evidence they presented.

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said, “Let me say this. So there are a lot of things that Mr. Biden is saying that are directly contradicted by documents,” as he indicated a mismatch between James’s arguments and their evidence.

Likewise, House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) added that he did not buy James’ whole story denying the Biden family’s business connections. Jordan stated that James’ answers raised more questions since they suggested James was probably hiding something. The chairman also added that some of James’s answers did not make sense.

In the interview, James denied having connections with Hunter Biden and partners Rob Walker, Tony Bobulinski and James Gilliar on a deal. Yet, a source revealed that when he was confronted with a document he allegedly signed with them, James he did not recall.

James also refuted allegations that he used his brother’s name in a bid to work with the hospital chain Americore. He claimed Joe “played no role, was not involved with, and received no benefits from my work with Americore.”

Before this statement, a report disclosed that James told Americore’s executives that his brother would promote the company during a presidential run if the company could expand rural healthcare.
