On Wednesday at the end of a virtual event with top House Democrats, when President Joe Biden offered to take questions, the video feed cut out.
“I’m happy to take questions, if that’s what I’m supposed to do, Nance. Whatever you want me to do,” said the president, who appeared to be unsure of whether there was a question-and-answer portion of the House Democratic Caucus Virtual Issues Conference.
After a few seconds of Biden waiting, his video feed cuts out and his window displays the White House logo.
It is unclear if this was intentional, unintentional, or some sort of technical mishap.
As The Washington Examiner pointed out, this ending was removed from the video-on-demand version of the event. In the video of Biden’s full remarks on YouTube, the video ends after the president says, “So I want to thank you all. I really mean it from the bottom — I want to thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
However, in the White House’s official transcript of Biden’s remarks at the event, it includes Biden saying at the end that he was happy to take questions.
The event featured high-ranking House Democrats such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), Whip Jim Clyburn (S.C.), and House Democratic Caucus Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.) discussing their legislative agenda in the House of Representatives. Additionally, Vice President Kamala Harris delivered remarks at the virtual event.
Biden’s roughly nine-minute remarks touched on issues ranging from COVID-19 economic relief and his American Rescue Plan to criminal justice reform and the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.

Hunter Biden Faces Devastating Tax Charges, Adding to Legal Woes
In a significant legal blow to President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, a California indictment reveals a litany of tax charges, compounding his legal troubles after his earlier plea of not guilty to federal gun charges. Former Whitewater deputy counsel Sol Wisenberg emphasized on “FOX & Friends” the devastating nature of the indictment, considering it a vindication of IRS whistleblowers.
Furthermore, Wisenberg contends that the indictment could have surfaced much earlier, pointing to the IRS whistleblowers’ struggle to keep the investigation ongoing. The legal battle, which involved Judge Maryellen Noreika in a Delaware courtroom, prevented what Wisenberg calls a “hinky plea deal” from proceeding. According to reports from Fox News, the former counsel believes that the defense attorneys for Hunter Biden may have overreached in their plea deal negotiations, leading to the current legal turmoil.
The California indictment specifically accuses Hunter Biden of failing to pay nearly $200,000 in income tax for the year 2019. This follows his October plea of not guilty to federal gun charges in the District of Delaware, a case originating from a lengthy investigation.
As the legal noose tightens around Hunter Biden, the latest tax charges come at a critical time. House Republican leaders are gearing up for a vote next week on a measure that could formally initiate an impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The proposed inquiry revolves around potential connections between the president and his son’s business dealings, further intensifying the political and legal challenges faced by the Biden family.
The unfolding legal drama poses a serious threat to Hunter Biden’s reputation and, consequently, could impact the Biden administration’s stability as it faces increasing scrutiny from political adversaries.
