Devon Archer, the now notorious former business partner of Hunter Biden, gave dramatic testimony to the House Oversight Committee on Monday that flatly contradicted previous statements by President Joe Biden.
He revealed to lawmakers that the “Biden brand” rescued beleaguered Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. He further related that the elder Biden joined his son on business calls with foreigners at least 20 times.
Archer told Congress in the closed-door hearing that Joe Biden was put on the phone to sell “the brand.”
He further testified that “Burisma would have gone out of business sooner if the Biden brand had not been involved.” An internal FBI document recorded a witness alleging that Joe and Hunter Biden received $10 million from the company to affect foreign policy.
Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) told reporters that testimony was presented that the president “lied to the American people when he said he had no knowledge about his son’s business dealings and was not involved.”

Comer did not stop there.
He related that “when Joe Biden was Vice President of the United States, he joined Hunter Biden’s dinners with his foreign business associates in person or by speakerphone over 20 times.”
The president in the past claimed that his son’s business was never discussed and he was not a part of dealings with his international colleagues. Those interactions brought in millions from countries such as China and Romania.
Now there is sworn testimony countering that assertion. Hilariously, Democrats want the public to believe that Joe Biden discussed the weather with foreign business representatives.
Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY) was lead counsel for former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment trial. He was also the only Democrat who deemed it worthwhile to be present for Archer’s testimony.
That made him the face of the leftist response after the hearing, and he wasted no time attempting to twist the damaging revelations.
Beyond the absurd claim that conversations were restricted to “niceties,” Goldman told journalists afterward that the then-vice president spoke to Hunter “every day.” That, he claimed, led to inevitable interactions with his international business partners.
Goldman asserted that “Hunter may have put his father on the phone with any number of different people, and they never once spoke about any business dealings.”
He even brought up the tragic illness of Joe Biden’s other son, Beau. The Democrat said these conversations happened around the same time as Beau was sick, implying that the situation had something to do with the then-vice president speaking with Hunter and his foreign associates.
