Trey Gowdy the former prosecutor and former politician has rejected the notion from Joe Biden that accusations against his son Hunter regarding foreign business deals amount to “foul play.”
“If immediate reports are correct, you’ve got more than one investigation into Biden family members,” Gowdy told host of “Outnumbered Overtime” Harris Faulkner. “So, I don’t think the grand jury is foul play, the United States Attorney’s office is not foul play.”
Gowdy explained that “probable cause” is why investigations have commenced. “Now, you’re welcome to pick on Republican politicians, but you’ve got two criminal investigations. That ain’t foul play, that’s called probable cause, Joe, that ain’t foul play.”
CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert interviewed Joe Biden last week, and Biden said he had every confidence in his son.
Colbert suggested to Biden that “the people who want to make hay in Washington are going to try to use your son as a cudgel against you.”
“How do you feel about that?” Colbert asked. “And what do you have to say to those people?”
“I have, we have, great confidence in our son,” responded Biden, referring to his wife, Jill. “I am not concerned about any accusations being made against him. It’s used to get to me. I think it’s kind of foul play, but look, it is what it is and he’s a grown man, he is the smartest man I know. I mean, from a pure intellectual capacity—and as long as he’s good, we’re good.”
The Delaware U.S. attorney is investigating Hunter Biden’s tax “affairs”—a probe that has been ongoing since 2018 but was only recently publicly disclosed.
Gowdy mentioned the lack of public awareness of Hunter’s foreign involvement, reported Fox News.
“There are three groups, Harris, I think that provide oversight in our culture. You have the executive branch, and there are ongoing criminal investigations. You have a Congress, but, you know, the House is not going to do anything. And the Senate will only do something if they [Republicans] win one of the seats in Georgia. And then, of course, you have the media.”
Gowdy questioned Joe Biden’s lack of transparency when it comes to his son’s business.
“Look, I don’t follow the news like you do, Harris, but I haven’t seen that many questions posed to Joe Biden about his son,” Gowdy told host Faulkner.
“You know, what he said was he had nothing to do with his son’s business. So, the answer to whether or not that is true is relevant. … If he is right, then someone is trafficking in his name without his knowledge, and if he is wrong, then he told us something that is a lie and your credibility is always relevant.”
