George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley made some observations regarding the “taunting” response from the Biden White House to Congressional Republicans’ impeachment inquiry in relation to the first family’s shady overseas business dealings during a Fox News weekend segment.

“I thought was quite shocking to see the level of taunting of the House. This was one of the most important things that the Congress and the president could be involved in, an impeachment inquiry. And actually, when I testified in the Biden impeachment hearing I noted that [WH counsel’s office spokesman Ian] Sams and others might be tripping some wires here,” he said at one point.

“This is what got the Nixon White House in trouble, when the White House counsel and other offices got involved in the narrative,” Turley added.

“There are serious questions here. There are 10 questions presented here. But he does not appear to answer them,” he went on, before dropping a bombshell.

“But the president stands contradicted. I mean, he clearly lied when he said he had no knowledge of his son’s business dealings. He was also clearly aware of and influence-peddling scheme and was the focus of it. But what the Democrats have done successfully is create this false narrative that he has to receive money directly for this to be corruption or bribery,” he said.

“Federal courts have rejected that. They have said repeatedly that money going to family members is corruption, and can be crimes like bribery,” Turley continued.

“But are they going to answer these questions? No, the president would rather drink molten lead and answer any one of these questions. Should he? Of course, he should, because he stands contradicted and the public has a right to know,” he added.
