The New York Times corrected an article about Hunter Biden, clarifying his statement about his father’s involvement in his business.

This alteration is seen as significant, suggesting a change in the nature of Biden’s involvement.

Hunter Biden is facing legal issues, and there is speculation about a potential presidential pardon, which has garnered mixed opinions from officials, with some expressing opposition to using pardons for personal reasons. (Trending: Ousted Democrat Who Filmed Explicit Tape Blames Homophobia)

“An earlier version of this article misquoted Hunter Biden. He said, ‘My father was not financially involved in my business,’ not, ‘My father was not involved in my business,’” wrote The NYT in their correction.

The amended quote reads: “Let me state as clearly as I can: My father was not financially involved in my business — not as a practicing lawyer, not as a board member of Burisma, not my partnership with a Chinese private businessman, not in my investments at home nor abroad and certainly not as an artist.”

Rep. Jordan called changing the word “financially” was a “huge change” compared to other responses given by White House officials.

“Which means, sort of means, he’s involved,” said Jordan.

“I think that’s how anyone with common sense would read it,” explained the committee chairman.”

“[Joe Biden’s] been involved, just not financially,” emphasized Jordan.

Adding, “That is a huge departure from everything they have said now for the last three-and-a-half years.”

“This statement today, I think, is the biggest news of the morning,” he concluded.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently repeated her claim that, “I’ve been very clear; the president is not going to pardon his son.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren does not want to even discuss pardons.

“Pardons should not be used for personal purposes,” she said.

Adding, “They should only be used in the interest of the United States public.”

Rep. Gerry Connolly, a democrat from Virginia said, “I believe the pardon power in the Constitution was provided for extraordinary circumstances, with assuming unstated mitigating circumstances.”

“It was not provided to provide relief for family members. So, no, I don’t think it should be used for that purpose,” he agreed.
