Karine Jean-Pierre wanted to run and hide rather than answer this question

Jan 12, 2024

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre is now known for her ability to skillfully dodge questions.

If Jean-Pierre doesn’t have a prepared answer in front of her in her binder, all bets are off.

And now Karine Jean-Pierre wanted to run and hide rather than answer this question.

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee held a hearing to vote on a resolution recommending a criminal referral for Hunter Biden on Contempt of Congress charges stemming from Hunter Biden blowing off a valid subpoena to testify in a closed-door deposition.

In the middle of the hearing, Hunter Biden and lawyers strode into the courtroom to create a circus and show the GOP majority that the weaponized Biden Justice Department would never prosecute for these crimes.

The hearing broke down as Republicans slammed Hunter Biden as a criminal and coward, as Biden and his attorneys fled the hearing room.

Hunter Biden showing up was a major risk, as the House GOP could have ordered the House Sergeant at Arms to take Hunter Biden into custody.

CBS News chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes pressed Karine Jean-Pierre on if the White House – meaning Joe Biden – had any direct knowledge of Hunter Biden’s plan to show up at the committee hearing.

Jean-Pierre noticeably didn’t answer the question.

“So here’s what I’ll say, and I’ve said this many times before. Hunter, as you all know, is a private citizen, he’s not a member of this White House. He makes his own decisions, like he did today about how to respond to Congress. And so I would refer you any further questions, any additional questions about this process, certainly, too, I refer you to Hunter’s representatives,” Jean-Pierre responded.

Cordes picked up on the nonresponse and asked a second time about if the White House had prior warning Biden planned to pull this stunt.

“I would just, again, I would say that I don’t have anything, we don’t have anything else to share beyond that. He’s a private citizen, and he makes his own decisions as it relates to this particular, you know, response, his particular response to the Congress, that’s something that he decides on. And I would refer you to his representatives,” Jean-Pierre added.

This was an important question.

After Hunter Biden defied the original subpoena to hold a press conference outside the Capitol, Jean-Pierre said Joe Biden knew what Hunter Biden was going to say.

That admission implicated Joe Biden in a scheme to obstruct justice, which could form the basis of an article of impeachment against Joe Biden or even criminal prosecution should Donald Trump win the presidency in November.

The people who scripted Jean-Pierre’s answers knew this question was likely to come up again, so they prepared a non-denial denial, which aroused further suspicion Joe Biden obstructed justice again by being aware of Hunter Biden’s stunt at the House Oversight Committee hearing.
