CNN’s Boris Sanchez repeatedly fact-checked and pushed back on claims made by Rep. Tim Burchett about President Biden’s alleged involvement in his family’s business dealings. When Burchett asserted $20 million flowed to the Biden family from foreign interests, the anchor noted bank records show $15M went to associates, not the family, and questioned how much went to Biden as VP.

The House Oversight Committee’s ongoing impeachment probe of President Biden, led by Chairman James Comer, has taken center stage with testimonies from key witnesses and calls for the president to testify. The investigation, which has been characterized by allegations of influence-peddling and financial impropriety by the Biden family, aims to scrutinize Joe Biden’s alleged involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings and the purported financial benefits accrued by the Biden family.

Rep. Matt Gaetz said, “This was a bribe masquerading as an international business transaction—nothing more, nothing less.” The recent hearing saw two of Hunter Biden’s former business associates, Tony Bobulinski and Jason Galanis, testify before the House Oversight Committee as part of the GOP’s impeachment probe. Testimonies emphasized claims of financial benefits received by the Biden family from policy decisions made during Joe Biden’s tenure as Vice President. Chairman James Comer signaled a shift in the approach of the impeachment probe, hinting at the possibility of criminal referrals arising from the committee’s inquiry.

Lack of evidence

Burchett pivoted to loans between Biden and his brother, which the anchor said were separate matters. Throughout, the anchor dismissed Burchett’s references to shell companies and lack of evidence, saying the committee has shown zero proof Biden abused power or enriched his family.

Sanchez said, “I’m curious about the $20 million, sir, because the actual bank records show that $15 million of that money actually went to Biden family associates, not the Biden family. About $5 million of it did go to Hunter. But I’m curious, specifically, how much of that money you‘re alleging went to Vice President Joe Biden back when he was in the White House?” he asked Burchett.

Multiple loans

Burchett referenced “20 so-called shell companies,” along with multiple loans. Sanchez responded, “Those two are conflated though, because the $200,000 was—according to documents that are coming out from the Oversight Committee—a loan that Joe Biden gave to his brother, James. That was then paid back. The documents support that it was a loan. And that also happened in 2017 when Joe Biden was not vice president.”

Addiction

“And then you have the pickup truck money that was apparently given to Hunter Biden when he was struggling through his addiction, and that money was then given back by Hunter to his father,” explained the CNN anchor. “Also supported by documentation, also happening in 2018 when Mike Pence was vice president.”

The brand

Burchett admitted, “I don’t know, but if it’s a dollar and he‘s lied about it and you‘ve got to ask what was the influence there. What is the brand? The brand is the Biden family. The brand is they’re not selling a service, they’re not selling a product. He has no qualifications for this, the only reason he was there was because he was Joe Biden’s son or he was Joe Biden’s brother,” he continued.

$20 million

Burchett exclaimed, “There’s $20 million that flowed through. You saw these accounts.”

Bank records

“That’s incorrect,” Sanchez shot back. “I looked at the bank records. They don’t say that Joe Biden got any money. Have you read the bank records? I’m not going to let you say things that are untrue, sir!” declared the CNN host.

Talking points

Burchett accused the anchor of not letting him answer, while the anchor accused the lawmaker of repeating talking points. “But you‘re not giving me an honest answer, sir, you are repeating a talking point!” charged Sanchez.

Biden to testify

via FOX

Chairman Comer stated his intention to invite President Joe Biden to testify before the committee, seeking an explanation for the alleged financial benefits received by his family from foreign companies. The invitation to testify comes amidst mounting pressure and skepticism from Republicans regarding the practicality and evidence of the impeachment inquiry, as well as the refusal of some witnesses to corroborate the allegations against the president.

Ongoing impeachment

via NBC

The ongoing impeachment inquiry against President Biden remains a focal point of political discourse, with the potential for critical developments based on testimonies and evidence presented before the House Oversight Committee. However, amidst the probe’s proceedings, the White House has yet to provide a response to the recent developments and the invitation for President Biden to testify.

The trajectory

The evolving nature of the impeachment probe and the potential ramifications of testimonies and evidence presented before the committee are expected to impact the trajectory of the investigation and the broader political landscape.

    If you or I illegally entered a foreign country I would expect to be arrested, jailed, and likely banned from ever entering again. But in the USA illegals are being given appointments to hear their case and then released into the country with stipends at taxpayer expense. What ever happened to the US Green Card Lottery? Foreigners wanting to immigrate to the US completed a application online from their country that would be vetted by the US embassy there for any criminal activity and verification of education, skills, etc. Different countries were allotted a number of immigrants positions for approval each year. Currently it seems millions of illegals are swarming our borders (South & North) and getting in unvetted. Why not stick with the Green Card Lottery that allocates more fairly opportunities to immigrate to a more diverse group of people?
    Just heard on TV, Chinese citizens found instructions on “How to Illegally Enter the USA”, on TicToc. So TicToc allows posting of instructions to commit illegal acts?
