‘What About Ivanka And Jared?’: Fox News Host Throws Curve Ball At GOP Lawmaker Over His Obsession With Biden
During an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, Rep. Tim Burchett, of Tennessee attempted to turn his interview into a Biden-bashing segment, but was caught off-guard when host Arthel Neville asked him why Republicans were not investigating the millions of dollars Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner made while serving as White House advisors during Donald Trump’s presidency.
House Republicans have spent months looking into money paid to the Biden family while now-President Joe Biden was vice president. They claim that the Biden family was paid $10 million by foreign entities while he was vice president but have failed to link the resident to anything illegal.
Predictably, Burchett continued the GOP talking point on Sunday.
“When the Biden family went to mob school, I believe they fell asleep during the money laundering because it is very clear where the money is coming from, the communist Chinese and many of our enemies across this world,” Burchett said.
Neville replied by asking why the Trump family did not face the same scrutiny from Republicans when they received millions while working in the Trump administration.
“But I do want to mention this, that absolutely, according to the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, on record, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump made up to $640 million while her father was in office, and they were official advisers to the president,” Neville noted. “If you would explain to our viewers why the Hunter Biden scenario is different.”
Burchett insisted that the earnings of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner “were not hidden.”
“That was business dealings that they were doing, and they are business people,” Burchett said. “whether it was, I think that that should be looked at as well.”
“So if the problem is corruption and compromise,” Neville pressed, “wouldn’t any income of such of that substantial amount be problematic for our country while someone is in office and their family members are receiving those sorts of payments?”
“I think so,” Burchett conceded. “There’s there should be no stone left unturned. But apparently, this is one that they refuse to even look at.”
