White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was confronted with ‘smoking gun’ proof the White House lied about President Joe Biden’s awareness of his son Hunter’s foreign business deals on Tuesday.
“Why is there a voicemail of the president talking to his son about his overseas business dealings if the president has said, ‘he’s never spoken to his son about his overseas business’?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.
“Well, first I’ll say that, what the president said stands,” Jean-Pierre replied. “So… if that’s what the president said, that, that is what stands.”
“He’s leaving a voicemail about a New York Times article concerning Hunter Biden’s business dealings,” Doocy pushed back. “And he says, ‘I think you’re clear.’ How is that not him talking to his son about his overseas business dealings?”
“I am not going to talk about alleged materials from the laptop,” KJP says emphatically.
The Daily Mail in June revealed in June that Joe Biden left a voicemail on Hunter Biden’s laptop that shows he knew about about his son’s shady business with China and lied about it.

The article referenced was published in the New York Times on Chinese oil tycoon Ye Jianming and did not go into much detail on the Biden family’s connections to the company. The voicemail directly contradicts President Biden’s prior statements that he did not know about Hunter’s business deals with China.
“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you get a chance just give me a call. Nothing urgent. I just wanted to talk to you,” Joe Biden said on the voicemail.
“I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear. And anyway if you get a chance give me a call, I love you,” he added.
The December 2018 voicemail from Hunter’s iPhone was found on his abandoned laptop. Then voicemail gives the American people a tiny glimpse into the business relationship in the Biden family.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden told Fox News’ Peter Doocy in 2019. It would be a claim repeated by former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki in April.
Now, we know with certainty that Joe Biden lied.
