Devon Archer, Hunter Biden’s longtime friend and fellow board member of Burisma, refused to answer questions as he entered an interview with the House Oversight Committee in the O’Neill House Office Building on Monday that is expected to include information about President Joe Biden’s involvement with Hunter Biden’s business dealings while the former was vice president.
Archer, who was sentenced to one year in prison for his role in a $60 million bond fraud involving various clients, was smiling as he was confronted by a multitude of questions from reporters. Though three planned depositions were previously canceled, Archer is now set to make an appearance before the Committee led by Republicans and was invited to the judgment.
The inquiry is an effort by the committee to get a grip on how much President Joe Biden knew about his son Hunter’s global business deals, including Hunter’s involvement in close to 25 calls that he had when Joe Biden was Vice President. These calls were all with foreign business partners and potential investors to whom the younger Biden regularly introduced his father.
This comes after the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York wrote to U.S. District Judge Ronnie Abrams requesting she set a date for Archer to report to prison for the accusations that he and Hunter Biden co-founded the now-dissolved firm Rosemont Seneca Partners. However, as of now, Archer’s counsel has argued that it is premature for a sentencing date to be set while it appears Archer may be considering filing appeals.
The primary source of this is journalist and columnist for the New York Post, Miranda Devine. As of late, Devine has already been making a claim that Archer will be likely confirming the President’s awareness and involvement with the international business ventures his son was participating in.
While the questions remain abundant, there has yet to be an explanation of President Joe Biden’s involvement with his son’s business affairs while he was the Vice President, and it is quite possible that Archer’s appearances could bring more answers to the table. Until then, the curiosity lingers and the proverbial jury of the public opinion is still out.
Biden’s de facto lawyer Rep. Daniel Goldman is visually shaken, sweaty and in PANIC after hearing Devon Archer’s testimony.
