White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is once again refusing to answer a tough question — this time about the House Oversight Committee receiving bank records that confirm the Biden family received money from a Chinese energy company.
During a White House press briefing on Wednesday, Jean-Pierre was asked by Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy about the bank records — which revealed that the Biden family had received millions of dollars from a Chinese energy company, distributed to various Biden family members’ bank accounts via Hunter Biden’s business affiliate Rob Walker.
My @GOPoversight investigation into the Biden family's influence peddling operation is heating up.
We now have financial records showing Biden family members receiving money from CCP connected individuals.

“House Oversight says they have bank records showing a Chinese energy company paying three Biden family members through a third party. What were they paid for?” Doocy asked.
Despite the fact that there is obvious evidence to the contrary, the press secretary claimed that Republican lawmakers were telling “lies” and “inaccuracies” about the Biden family’s shady business dealings.
“Look, I’m just not going to respond to that from here. Look, we have heard from House Republicans for years and years and years how, how — the inaccuracies and lies when it comes to this issue,” Jean-Pierre replied.
“And I don’t even know where to begin to even answer that question,” the press secretary added. “Because, again, it’s been lies and lies and inaccuracy for the past couple of years and I’m just not going to get into it from here.”

While Jean-Pierre says that House Republicans’ evidence-based assertions about the Biden family are “lies,” House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. James Comer (R-KY) argued that the press secretary was actually the liar.
“Jean-Pierre claims she doesn’t know where to begin when confronted with the facts of our investigation,” he told the New York Post. “She can start with the bank records we obtained showing a Chinese energy company paying members of the Biden family over $1 million through an associate.”
“Bank records don’t lie,” Comer added.
“The fact that President Biden and his press secretary continue to be dishonest with the American people about the Biden family’s shady business schemes is alarming,” the Oversight Committee chairman concluded. “The House Oversight Committee will continue to pursue answers, transparency, and accountability for the American people.”
The bank records examined by the Oversight Committee revealed that a total of $1.3 million in payments were made to Hunter Biden, James Biden, Hallie Biden, and a fourth undisclosed member of the Biden family. The money was sent just a few months after President Joe Biden left office as vice president in 2017. The president has denied the accusations when asked about the matter by reporters.
