Well, you know, maybe he did a little.
According to Fox News:
President Biden has repeatedly denied discussing Hunter’s business ventures with him. His son is currently under federal investigation for his tax affairs predicated by suspicious foreign transactions.
White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked Tuesday about the voicemail in question, which was first reported by the Daily Mail.
“Hey pal, it’s Dad. It’s 8:15 on Wednesday night. If you have a chance give me a call. Nothing urgent—I just wanted to talk with you,” Biden is heard saying in a voicemail from 2018. “I thought the article released online, it’s going to be printed tomorrow in the Times, was good. I think you’re clear.”
The article Biden was referring to was published by the New York Times in December 2018 and reported a private meeting between the chairman of a now-defunct Chinese energy company, CEFC, and Hunter Biden at a Miami hotel in May 2017.
When asked about the voicemail, Jean-Pierre was asked why there was a voicemail of Biden speaking to Hunter Biden about his business dealings if the president has repeatedly said he has ever spoken to his son about his business ventures.
“Well, first, I’ll say that what the president said stands,” Jean-Pierre said.
