Washington, D.C. (February 22, 2024)—Rep. Jamie Raskin, Ranking Member of the Committee on Oversight and Accountability, issued the following statement after the Committee concluded a voluntary transcribed interview with James Biden:

 

“Yesterday, James Biden appeared voluntarily before the Committee and answered the Committee’s questions for more than seven hours.  During this interview, he explained repeatedly and unequivocally that Joe Biden has ‘never had any involvement or any direct or indirect financial interest in his business activities,’ and that Joe Biden never took any official action to benefit his business ventures.

 

“Yesterday’s interview served only to corroborate the mountain of evidence that has proven time and time again that President Biden has committed no wrongdoing.  For more than a year this ridiculous investigation has yielded over 100,000 pages and dozens of hours of evidence debunking Republicans’ false claims about the President.

 

“Instead of facts and evidence, this inquiry has been driven by Donald Trump’s demands for political retribution and fueled by disinformation and propaganda pushed by agents with alleged ties to Russian intelligence and Chinese interests.

 

“It’s time for Chairmen Comer and Jordan to put an end to this flailing and embarrassing impeachment inquiry and start to address at least a few issues that might actually matter to the American people and America’s future.”
