During a press briefing, Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre directly if President Joe Biden had any involvement in "family business schemes."
The Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee has claimed that there is evidence that Biden lied to the public about his involvement in his family's international business ventures. The new Republican majority in the House has also vowed to investigate the president's son, Hunter, over his dealings with Ukrainian energy company Burisma and Chinese energy company CEFC China Energy.
“With the new Republican majority coming in, the House Oversight Committee is laying out their new investigations, and they claim it had evidence that Joe Biden lied to the American people about his involvement in his family’s business schemes. Did he?” Doocy questioned at the press briefing on Tuesday.
“So look, I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again. House Republicans promise that fighting inflation during the midterms was going to be their number one priority, that is what they said was important to them and that’s what they said they wanted to do,” Jean-Pierre said. “But instead, what they’re doing, is wanting to start an investigation on the president and his family. They don’t want to focus on the American people and their family, they want to focus on political division. They want to focus on something that the American people do not want to see, as we saw from the midterm elections.”

In November, House Republicans on the Oversight Committee released a report claiming that Biden "abused his public positions" to further his family's financial interests. Representative James Comer of Kentucky (R) previously stated that they have "presented the evidence" to investigate the president's involvement in his son's business endeavors.
In September 2020, Senate Republicans released a report alleging that the younger Biden had "exploited" his father's position of power, though the report did not specify Biden's role in his son's business endeavors.
President Biden has repeatedly denied having any involvement in his son's business dealings. In 2019, while running for president, he told reporters that he had never had a conversation with Hunter about his business endeavors. However, an alleged voicemail from 2018 obtained by the Daily Mail indicated that Biden planned to speak with his son about a New York Times article discussing his business activities in China.
