In an incredible show of defiance, Hunter Biden ignored a House subpoena and instead held a press conference at the Capitol. Hunter demanded that Congress give him a public hearing and insisted that his father, President Biden, "was not financially involved" in his businesses. And the media ate it up. But Glenn and Stu call him out for his word games. No one is accusing Joe Biden of investing in Hunter's companies, they explain. The House's impeachment inquiry is focusing on BACKROOM deals and shady money laundering trails. Glenn and Stu tear into the media's narrative with the REAL evidence that the House has against Joe Biden and also explain the only thing the President SHOULD have said if he wanted to appear innocent.
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Here's cut four. Here's Hunter Biden yesterday.He said something that the New York Times decided to quote by using a misquote. Listen to this.
VOICE: Let me state as clearly as I can. My father was not financially involved in my business.
GLENN: Stop. Why is that important?
STU: Well, you know, Glenn. You have a song. And then you remix it. And then there's a club mix. And a dance mix. And a disco mix.
And eventually, it's not the same song. And that's where we are in the Hunter Biden saga.
GLENN: You're saying, they're not singing the same song here.
STU: Because it was first, I never spoke to my child Hunter about my business at all.
GLENN: And he would say, I've never spoken to my father. Never spoken to my father.
STU: Yeah. That was the initial --
GLENN: About any of my business.
STU: That moved. All the -- it got to, I never spoke to him about the finances.
I never met with him -- all these things have proven to be true. Now we've gone all the way to, what was the quote again?
GLENN: My father was not financially involved.
STU: Involved in my business.
Now, is that a massive leap.
Because I -- I think -- if -- thinking about what we believe about Joe Biden.
Like, for example, there was a payment that went -- we've talked about it before. And I'm not going to be able to get it exactly right.
GLENN: I can. It's China to the trust.
To, you know, the Shell Corporations.
Actually, through, I don't remember. It was Sri Lanka or some crazy place like that.
China. Sri Lanka. Then to the Shell Corporations. Then to the lawyer.
Then the lawyer to, I think Joe Biden's brother.
STU: Jim. Jim Biden.
GLENN: Jim Biden. Then he wrote a check to all of the other Bidens.
Including one to the other Bidens. Saying, loan repayment. But there's no paperwork. Or any kind of indication, that that money was ever loaned to Jim.
STU: So now you could probably technically look at that arrangement, and say, that's not a financial involvement in the business.
Right? Like he's not investing. That's something that Joe Biden is not investing money into that business.
Has a getting repaid for loans, right?
Even the way it is now.
It's clearly a payment. But it's not on the books as a financial investment in this company.
No one is accusing him of investing in this company.
GLENN: No. Look, here's the thing.
STU: It's absurd!
GLENN: Let's just look at this as a normal human being.
First of all, my kid is doing drugs and hookers. And I know about it.
I don't send him over to Ukraine.
To a job with a guy who literally beheads his enemies.
STU: For any reason.
GLENN: Yeah. I never do that. I never do that.
I never put my son, who is addicted to cocaine and everything else, and hookers.
I never put him in a situation, to where it's going to make it worse.
I don't send him money to bail him out with his hookers.
None of that. I don't think you do either.
Now, here's something I might do.
If my son was legitimate.
GLENN: I'm at the end of my career. I'm 78 years old, and my son is making money.
And as long as I'm not making money, you know, I'll pop in. And just say hi to my son. He's with some clients.
I'm not going to do anything for him. I'm not going to do anything for those clients.
But I pop in, blah, blah, blah.
But I'm not taking any money for it.
STU: Oh, God no.
But you can see yourself -- you know my son.
It's great to meet you. Then those people go back. Tell those little stories. Then, oh, my gosh.
Joe Biden walked in. The vice president walked in.
You can see it as something that you --
GLENN: But that's not the only thing he did.
GLENN: He would take private conferences with them.
GLENN: Dinners with them. He would get their kids into colleges.
STU: He was certainly, at the very least, part of a threat.
STU: For payment.
STU: Now, we don't know for sure if --
GLENN: My dad will make you miserable.
STU: Okay. Yeah. Exactly.
We know he at least was using his dad, at least what we know.
And we know they were in the same location at the time of that message.
GLENN: And I think if you or your wife. And your wife and your husband had Hunter Biden as your son. And you really believed the things that you had said.
I wasn't involved in that. I wasn't.
Well, I -- okay. I did meet with some people.
You believed that all the way.
And you believed your son was struggling. But at this point, this is going on.
He's now in contempt of Congress. Okay? At some point, you say, you know, son, you're out of -- Get Out Of Jail Free cards.
I'm sorry. But you've humiliated me and the family. And, quite honestly, yourself and your children. And I don't want your children to believe, that they can get away with the kind of stuff. And maybe it's my fault. Because I raised you like this.
I don't know.
But no more. No more.
I -- and I would come out and say, I'm really embarrassed.
I'm embarrassed by my son.
My son is sick.
I've done everything I can. But I -- I'm sorry. I'm the president of the United States.
Now, I would say that, just as me, just as -- just as a dad.
If -- if he embarrassed our entire family like this over this many years. Nope.
STU: Yeah. You probably have members of your family or at least people that you know.
Their family. Who have, you know, basically excommunicated members. Because of things they have done to damage the family unit.
After a while -- you listen to Dr. Laura for five minutes. Listen to one of those calls. Where people call up. Hey, what should I do? My husband ripped us off, and he hit my daughter. And blah, blah, blah, blah. But I want to stay married.
Get them out of your life.
GLENN: Or get off my phone.
At some point, you have no sympathy. You are a part of it. You are a part of the sickness.
STU: Yeah. So -- and speaking of remixes, you know, because you get down this road. I was actually listening to -- it was ABC News this morning.
And what has been the constant refrain from the media on this entire topic?
STU: They have no evidence. Right?
They keep saying this. They have no evidence. They have no evidence.
They were talking about the impeachment inquiry this morning. I'm listening to it. They're saying, they now say -- the remix has started on this.
GLENN: Okay. Hey. Before you get to ABC.
GLENN: Let me tell you what AOC said yesterday.
Here's AOC on that very point.
VOICE: And not only is the committee not allowing Hunter Biden to testify publicly, but they have not called a single witness, a single first-hand witness to any of their allegations. They haven't allowed anybody to testify publicly. Because they do not have a single witness to any of their alleged allegations.
STU: They've done interviews.
They have publicly done interviews about this.
GLENN: What are you talking about?
STU: She's a buffoon. It's pure and simple.
GLENN: I'm telling you.
No. The American people, that still buy into this.
And watch CNN or ABC or any of these networks. That will play that, without saying, that's untrue.
You're a moron.
STU: And that has been their role for a while.
Now, of course this evidence has existed for years. It was out before the 2020 election.
Some of it.
GLENN: I know. I know.
STU: However, it really has. We've learned a lot more over the past year.
ABC said, you know, they still kind of claimed, this is stuff they're going -- they want this impeachment inquiry. They don't have evidence to -- they don't have proof of this.
Evidence has turned to proof.
And I think that's interesting. Look, having proof of interesting-something. You're in court. Arguing with all the evidence you need.
The Republicans explicitly said, the reason they're doing this inquiry. Is to get the --
GLENN: The evidence.
STU: And the witnesses, they're trying to get on record, to be forced to actually come.
Right? The problem is they're just saying no right now.
STU: So they have to make this formal. So that these witnesses to have show up and answer these questions.
And there will be plenty of witnesses.
We've had whistle-blowers. We've had business associates. We have text messages. We have bank records. There's a ton of evidence.
The other thing they said. While they don't have proof of all of this.
What they have shown is a series of statements from Joe Biden, that are misleading or outright --
STU: They didn't use the word lies. They said something else. It was close to eyes, but it was something else. And I did notice that. Contradictions, is I believe what they said.
Think about this, we bash the Republicans all the time. For good reason. They let us down often. But let me look for just one bit of sunlight here.
The Republicans got elected by three or four seats. Right?
That's it. They don't have a lot of power.
As we said, and I said this to you. You said this, Glenn. Back in 2022.
The main thing they'll be able to accomplish are these investigations.
They won't be able to pass laws.
They won't be able to -- they will be able to block the worst case stuff from the Biden administration. That's number one.
And number two, they'll be able to do investigations.
This is -- Joe Biden said, my son.
This is where it started. We didn't even get the starting point right at the song before the remix.
His first statement was, my son -- my son has done nothing wrong.
Nothing! We couldn't even get him to say, look, he's a disaster. But it's not me.
He didn't even say, well, he's done a lot of mistakes. But it's illegal.
My son has done nothing wrong. When was he saying that? May of this year.
GLENN: Oh, my gosh.
STU: May of this year, Joe Biden was still saying his son had done nothing wrong.
The Republicans have moved this ball down the field, in impressive fashion over the past six months. And it is something we should notice. Because they have actually done a good job, moving this.
GLENN: Oh, I just the weaponization of government committee. And the Hunter Biden investigation committee. I just both of those have done a remarkable job. Remarkable.
STU: Every once in a while, you have to stop and say, they've done something right too.
GLENN: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
In just -- in just exposing.
And like you said, they can't stop it.
STU: It might not lead to anything. They might still lose elections. They might not get to the end of this. They might blow it in some way. All that is true.
But we do know a lot more now, than even we did a year ago. Even conservative, you know, talk show listeners knew.
We have gone -- they have learned things. They have proved things. And they have even moved the mainstream media to admit to some of this stuff.
