President Joe Biden inaccurately stated that he supported the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden during a Wednesday speech in which he vowed to remove all American troops from Afghanistan by Sept. 11, 2021, The Daily Caller reported.

“I said, along with many others, we would follow Osama bin Laden to the Gates of Hell if need be and that is exactly what we did. We got him,” Biden said Wednesday.

However, Sen. John McCain was actually the one who said that he would follow bin Laden to the “Gates of Hell.”

“I want to look you in the eye today my friends and say that if I have to follow him to the Gates of Hell, I will get Osama bin Laden. I will bring him to justice,” McCain said to a group of voters during a 2008 Republican presidential primary speech.

While then-President Barack Obama supported the operation against Bin Laden, Biden advised Obama to wait.

“Mr. President, my suggestion is, don’t go. We have to do two more things to see if he’s there,” then-Vice President Biden recalled telling then-President Obama in 2012.

“Joe weighed in against the raid,” Obama wrote in his memoir, “A Promised Land.”

During the 2020 presidential election, Republican ads claimed Biden opposed taking Bin Laden out altogether.

Bin Laden was killed on May 1, 2011 by Navy Seals who found him at the 9/11 mastermind’s Abottabad compound.

‘Coordinated effort’ to hide Hunter Biden information: Treasury denies request for reports

Published

The United States Treasury Department has denied Republicans’ request for reports and documents which deal with the President’s son, Hunter Biden. In a bizarre response, Treasury legislative affairs chief Jonathan Davidson sent a letter to the House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer saying they need more detail as to why the panel its seeking such “highly sensitive information.”

Apparently suspicious activity surrounding the President of the United States’ son doing business deals, foreign banking and transactions with overseas entities including China and Ukraine is not obvious enough.

Davidson’s letter did not acknowledge whether such reports on the Bidens exist, but instructed Comer that “improper disclosure” of such information can undermine the executive branch’s “conduct of law enforcement, intelligence, and national security activities.”

Comer responded that “this coordinated effort by the Biden Administration to hide information about President Biden and his family’s shady business schemes is alarming and raises many questions.”

Comer added the panel will continue to request the reports and will use “the power of the gavel to get them if needed.”

Bloomberg News reports:

Comer and other Republicans already said they have evidence that finances, credit cards, and bank accounts of Hunter and Joe Biden were commingled if not shared.

And in an interim report released in November, Republicans surmised that the Treasury Department has at least 150 SARs related to financial transactions of Biden family members.

Nonetheless, in his letter to Yellen, Comer explained, “The Committee is investigating President Biden’s knowledge of and role in these schemes to assess whether he has compromised our national security at the expense of the American people.”

Comer added the committee also “will examine drafting legislation to strengthen federal ethics laws regarding employees and their families.”
