Joe Biden’s legal and political problems just got way worse.
Biden owes this newfound scandal to Hunter Biden.
And Hunter Biden’s shocking confession implicated Joe Biden in this illegal act.
Hunter Biden refused to comply with a congressional subpoena to testify at a closed-door deposition in the GOP investigation into Joe Biden’s corruption.
The Biden Justice Department arrested and convicted Trump advisors Peter Navarro and Steve Bannon on contempt of Congress when the two didn’t comply with a subpoena from the January 6 committee.
House Republicans pledged to initiate contempt of Congress proceedings against Hunter Biden and refer him for criminal prosecution when they return from recess in January.
But Karine Jean-Pierre added a new layer to this scandal when she blurted out in a press conference that Hunter Biden gave Joe Biden advance notice that he planned to hold a press conference when he announced he wouldn’t comply with a demand that he testify in a closed-door deposition and that he would only testify in public.

The implications of this admission were staggering as Karine Jean-Pierre all but admitting Joe Biden participated in a conspiracy to obstruct justice and defy a lawful subpoena.
George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley wrote in a new column that he couldn’t believe what he heard.
Turley explained that one of the articles of impeachment Republicans could bring against Joe Biden was over the documented – by IRS whistleblower testimony – political interference by the Justice Department in the Hunter Biden investigation.
“One of the four most obvious potential articles of impeachment that I laid out in my prior testimony was obstruction. There already are questions over special treatment potentially being given to Hunter in the form of alleged felonies being allowed to expire, warnings about planned federal raids, and sweetheart deals,” Turley began.
“In addition, President Biden has enlisted White House staff to actively push challenged accounts of his conduct and attack the House Republicans’ investigative process. Such acts could legally bootstrap prior misconduct into his presidency under abuse-of-power allegations,” Turley added.
Turley stated that Joe Biden knowing his son planned to take a course of action that could lead to criminal charges made Joe Biden a co-conspirator in a cover-up to deny Congress information about Joe Biden’s role in what allegedly is the largest foreign influence peddling scheme in American history.
“If this latest allegation is true, the president was speaking with his son about committing a potentially criminal act of contempt. Hunter was refusing to give testimony focused not on his own role but on his father’s potential role in the alleged influence peddling. The House can pursue evidence on that conversation and how the president may have supported his son’s effort,” Turley concluded.
