Joe Biden's brother testifies in Congress – Telemundo Fresno

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden's brother, James Biden, testified Wednesday while appearing in a voluntary private interview on Capitol Hill as part of the Republican impeachment inquiry, which is being held in the House of Representatives. .

“I have worked for 50 years in various business ventures. Joe Biden has had no involvement or any direct or indirect financial interest in these activities,” James Biden told lawmakers, according to a document obtained by The Associated Press. “No one.”

Republican lawmakers recently gave interviews as they sought to restart a process related to the Biden family's foreign finances that had stalled in recent months.

Criticism has grown over the lack of evidence directly linked to the president, even among members of the Republican Party, who have poured cold water on accusations that Biden is directly involved in his relatives' alleged efforts to profit from the family name and do business at home and abroad. abroad.

The GOP investigation was undermined again last week when an FBI informant, who claimed a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme involving the president, his son Hunter and a Ukrainian energy company, was accused of fabricating the story.

The whistleblower allegations have been central to Republican efforts in Congress to investigate the president and his family.

Hunter Biden's lawyer, who is expected to testify next week, said the charges show the investigation is “based on dishonest witnesses and dishonest allegations.”

“With me here today, the committees will have the information to conclude that the negative and damaging assumptions about me and my relationship with my brother Joe are false,” James Biden testified.

“There is no basis for continuing this investigation.”

Republicans rejected the Biden family's defense, saying the evidence paints a troubling picture of “influence peddling” in the family business, especially with international clients.
