Jonathan Turley Hits Nail On Head: “Utter contempt for the intelligence of the public to insist that the answer remains the same”



Legal scholar Jonathan Turley hit the nail on the head when discussing the changing story of the Biden family business saying Joe has utter contempt for the American public. Turley wrote:

“Starting with his campaign for the presidency and continuing until this week, President Joe Biden has maintained one clear and consistent position on his son’s influence peddling schemes. 

“As a virtual mantra, Biden — and the White House staff — have categorically maintained that he had no knowledge of any foreign dealings of his son. That has been proven to be a lie, but Biden continued to maintain the position. 

“Yet, on the eve of the testimony of a key Biden associate, the White House has changed its position. Now the President is only claiming that he was “not in business” with his son.

“Some of us have written multiple columns over the last four years arguing that the President was clearly and knowingly lying in his denials of knowledge and discussions of these deals.

“Even when he made the statement, it was clearly untrue but most of the media shrugged and happily walked away.

“Then the evidence began to mount.

“White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked by Fox News journalist Gillian Turner:

“Chairman James Comer today says that the Oversight Committee has evidence that the president in the past communicated directly with foreign business associates of his son Hunter Biden many times. Curious if the White House and the president still stand behind his comment that he’s never been involved and has never even spoken to his son about his business?”

“The response from Jean-Pierre was surprising:

“So, I’ve been I’ve been asked this question a million times. The answer is not going to change. The answer remains the same. The president was never in business with his son. I just don’t have anything else to add.”

“It takes an utter contempt for the intelligence of the public to insist that “the answer remains the same” and then give an entirely new answer. 

“However, that is only if most of the public is informed of the contradiction. None of the media in the White House press corp followed up on Turner’s questions when Jean-Pierre immediately moved on.

“If that is now the new spin of the President, it is about four years too late. The President assured the public repeatedly and consistently that he never discussed or knew of these dealings even as evidence mounted in contradiction. 

“He made this false denial part of his presidency in having his staff echo the same denials to the press and the public. As allegations of bribery and influence peddling swirl around the White House, this pattern of dishonesty and denial can become a basis for impeachment inquiries, as it was with Nixon,” he said.

Megyn Kelly broke down the changing story: “Aug 2019: Biden: “I have never discussed, w/my son or my brother … anything having to do w/their businesses.”

“Sep 2019: Biden: I have “never spoken” to Hunter about his “overseas business dealings. 2022: WH press sec Psaki is asked: Does the President stand by that claim? “Yes.”

“6/2023: Biden is asked, “Did you lie about never speaking to Hunter about his business dealings?” A: “No”
