This week, House Republicans announced an impeachment inquiry against Joe Biden. House Speaker McCarthy had vowed to open a probe, should the evidence warrant it. The Republican listed six major allegations that triggered the investigation, which could led to the impeachment of the Democrat.
The mainstream media has tried to dismiss or downplay the news. Democrats have seemingly tried to distract from Biden’s scandals, by indicting Donald Trump, his chief political rival. Reporters pegged White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the bombshell news. This is how she responded.
During a press conference on Wednesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre walked out as a reporter pressed her for answers on why Biden interacted with Hunter Biden’s business associates.
“Can you explain why the president interacted with so many of his son’s foreign business associates? More than half of voters told CNN they believe the president was involved and he lied. You can’t have a response to that, Karine?” a reporter shouted as Jean-Pierre packed up her belongings and left. [Source: The Post Millennial]

The White House press secretary KJP spent a recent news conference dodging questions about the newly-announced impeachment probe. She appeared to tow the media’s claim that there is “no evidence” that Biden committed impeachable offenses.
She said this, despite documents, emails, and testimony to the contrary.
A reporter asked about a recent poll that stated over half of voters believe Biden lied about his involvement in Hunter Biden’s business dealings. The beleaguered press secretary packed up her books and left without answering.
Both of Joe Biden’s press secretaries had reputations for failing to answer direct questions. KJP’s predecessor was known for saying she’d “circle back” to questions, but never ended up doing so. Jean-Pierre often brings with her binders and other seeming “preparation” for her conferences, but often fails have answers to pressing questions.
In this case, she refused to answer a critical question regarding the fallout of this impeachment probe. Just one year before Biden’s re-election bid, he will have to fend off an investigation that could take down his administration and family. Such a dramatic turn of events demands answers from his administration, at the very least, his press secretary.
But, in common fashion, the administration is simply stonewalling the American public. Which will only allow Republicans to control the impeachment narrative, moving forward.
