President Biden struggled during NATO summit press conference Monday, forgetting a reporter’s question in the most awkward way. Then on Tuesday during the U.S. E.U. summit, he gaffed again. Even the president said “I’m going to get into trouble for this.”
CNN’s Jeff Zelny asked Biden if he still thought Russian President Vladimir Putin is a killer, as he previously said. Biden responded by laughing.
“I’m laughing too. They actually–Well look, he has made clear,” Biden began. What followed was seven seconds of awkward pause. “The answer is–I believe he has in the past essentially acknowledged that he was uh–there were certain things that he did do or would do.”
Meanwhile, Zelny had asked two questions. But Biden couldn’t remember the second question after his gaffe.
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) brought attention to the gaffe on Twitter. Biggs called the president “blatantly impaired.”
Gaffes kept coming. The very next day Biden gaffed during the U.S. E.U. summit because he got distracted.
“And uh, I’ve said before and I apologize for the–Oh, I didn’t–Jake Sullivan from the State Department our National Security advisor,” Biden gestured toward Sullivan in the room. “I’m leaving out a lot of people here I apologize. I’m going to get in trouble. But, anyway, we’ll get back to that. But um we um uh you know there’s a lot that–that is–it’s happening.”

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