Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defended Hunter Biden during his testimony before the House impeachment inquiry, rejecting the Republican arguments against him as an inappropriate “fishing expedition” unrelated to impeachment.

She characterized their line of questioning about Hunter’s business dealings and his father Joe Biden’s possible involvement as part of a “MAGA-motivated conspiracy” without solid evidence.

Ocasio-Cortez said, “What we just witnessed over the last hour was, I think, a deep sea fishing expedition.”

She claimed, “The Republican case has completely fallen apart over the last several weeks.”

Ocasio-Cortez said, “They [Republicans] are now trying to scramble to find anything to substantiate their fairytale — is what we should call this.”

The Democrat continued, “But I think, more disturbingly, what we are seeing is just a complete and inappropriate expedition into the president’s son and for matters in subjects that are completely unrelated to an impeachment investigation.”

She added, “And I think it is extremely disturbing to see the lack of professionalism [and] the lack of grounding and the abuse of public resources and abuse of public power in order to pursue something that truly, whose points at this juncture, is very unclear.”

Hunter stated that he did not involve his father in his business, but did not explicitly say that Joe Biden had no involvement.

Hunter emphatically testified that he “did not involve my father in my business,” he claimed.

The House investigation has uncovered financial records showing millions of dollars flowing to Hunter and other Biden family members from foreign business ventures.
