Following the Thursday afternoon conference, Doocy told a Fox News panel about the snub and showed a binder of questions he had planned to ask the president.

Mentioning how people thought he was kidding when he had said the night before that he had a binder, he then whipped out a black binder.
“I was not kidding,” the reporter said as he flipped through the pages while standing in front of the White House.
Saying “we had a lot” of questions, Doocy mentioned that many of them were never brought up at the conference. Some of these included pressing Biden on topics ranging from green jobs to the origins of the coronavirus.

Occasionally, Doocy has shouted questions at Biden at the end of other public events, with Biden sometimes giving a response—albeit typically short and snappy ones.
Eventually, Doocy talked to the Fox panel about the list Biden had of reporters to take questions from and in what chronological order.
“In the room there were some aides—including Kate Bedingfield, the communications director, and Jen Psaki, the press secretary—they were monitoring what he was saying,” Doocy said. “It looked like they were checking their phones to get the instant reaction. But, while he was up there, he was pretty much on his own.”
“Usually—at the last few of these,” he continued, adding that the last one he could recall resembling this was in Wilmington, Delaware, “they had an aide off to the side, with the list of reporters to call on.”
“Today it was Biden with the list, and once they got through about an hour and 20 minutes, he was done,” Doocy said.
“I’m not sure that was the end of the list,” he concluded. “If we were on it, he did not make it down that far.”

Biden’s Email Controversy Deepens: A Saga of Aliases, Whistleblowers, and Shadowy Communications
In a bombshell revelation, new records released by the House Ways & Means Committee expose a labyrinth of email aliases and private addresses used by then-Vice President Joe Biden to communicate with his son Hunter and key business associates, according to metadata obtained from IRS whistleblowers Gary Shapley and Joseph Ziegler.
Furthermore, according to reports from Fox News, the data, covering the span of nine years from 2010 to 2019, reveals an astonishing 327 exchanges between Biden and his son, notably during Biden’s tenure as vice president.
The majority of these clandestine communications were exclusively with Eric Schwerin, a pivotal figure described as “the architect of the Biden family’s shell companies.” The emails were conducted using aliases such as “robinware456,” “JRBware,” and “RobertLPeters.” House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer had previously hinted at the existence of Biden’s email aliases earlier this year.
According to reports, the whistleblowers, still actively employed as IRS investigators, ran a search for Biden’s email aliases in their existing files, revealing the 327 exchanges with Hunter Biden and Schwerin. The metadata access, however, falls short of scrutinizing email content, requiring a search warrant for deeper investigation.
Schwerin, former president of Hunter’s Rosemont Seneca Advisors, has found himself under the spotlight. In a March 2023 meeting with the House Oversight Committee, Schwerin claimed he was unaware of any transactions related to Biden family business in the then-Vice President’s bank account.
This assertion aligns with the White House narrative, pushing back against Republican scrutiny and an impeachment inquiry.
Amidst the rising scrutiny, House Oversight Committee Chairman Comer has subpoenaed Schwerin for a deposition on Nov. 9, indicating a deepening probe into the financial intricacies of the Biden family.
The data also reveals a spike in emails between Biden and Schwerin during the vice president’s travels to Ukraine, a period significantly coinciding with Hunter Biden’s board membership at Burisma Holdings.
The information underscores the increased communication between the two during crucial junctures, raising questions about the nature of their discussions and the potential intersection of official government business with family interests.
Ways & Means Committee Chairman Jason Smith, spearheading the impeachment inquiry against President Biden, asserts that the evidence points to Joe Biden’s use of private email accounts with aliases while conducting official duties on international trips.
The broader investigation by Smith, alongside House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan and House Oversight Committee Chairman Comer, delves into foreign money received by the Biden family and whether President Biden was involved in their foreign business dealings.
As the House intensifies its scrutiny, Hunter Biden’s scheduled deposition on Dec. 13 promises further revelations, with House Republicans pledging transparency by releasing the transcript and advocating for a public hearing. The saga of Biden’s emails unfolds against a backdrop of denial from the White House and Justice Department officials, creating a complex narrative.
