The White House responded Wednesday to a poll which indicated that a majority of Americans believe President Joe Biden was “involved with his son in illegal influence peddling.”
The House Oversight Committee released a report on May 10, which alleged that members of the Biden family, including his son Hunter Biden, received $10 million from foreign sources through various LLCs while Joe Biden was vice president.
A Harvard/Harris poll conducted May 17-18 showed that 53% of Americans believe Joe Biden was involved in an “illegal influence peddling scheme while he was vice president.” Among party lines, 25% of Democrats believe Biden was involved, compared to 79% of Republicans.
“What do you say to the majority of Americans who say the president is himself corrupt?” New York Post’s Steven Nelson asked White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby.
“The president has spoken to this. The president has spoken to this, and there’s nothing to these claims,” Kirby responded.
Biden has never publicly addressed the House Oversight’s report.
White House spokesman Ian Sams responded to the committee on May 10, saying Comer “has a history of playing fast and loose with the facts and spreading baseless innuendo while refusing to conduct his so-called ‘investigations’ with legitimacy.”
