White House comes to Biden’s defense on reporter ‘cheat sheet’ claiming it’s ‘entirely normal’

President Joe Biden announced his reelection bid this week, worrying Americans about what four more years of his administration’s policies would do. The man already needs a “cheat sheet” during his press conferences. Nonetheless, he has a pandering staff that will defend the aging man’s inability to lead a nation.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said “It’s entirely normal for a president to be briefed on reporters who will be asking questions at a press conference and issues that we expect they might ask about…It is not surprising that yesterday we would anticipate questions that he did receive.”

She attempted to accuse the press of doing the same thing, but with her assistance: “the questions you all tell me… that’s how we brief him as well.”

Just The News reports that her remarks are the result of scrutiny of Biden over a photo that emerged of him holding a card with the image of LA Times reporter Courtney Subramanian and a question on it. The photo suggests that Biden receives advance knowledge of the questions, and photos of the individuals to be called upon.

Jean-Pierre further denied that the White House had received any reporters’ questions in advance and insisted the president’s staff merely attempted to familiarize Biden with specific reporters and prepare him for their possible questions. The LA times denied that it had supplied Biden with questions in advance, saying that Subramanian’s posting means “she is in regular contact with the White House press office seeking information for her reporting.”

BREAKING: Hunter Biden Found Guilty on All Three Felony Charges

Published

Hunter Biden, son of President Joe Biden, was found guilty on all three felony charges on Tuesday. After a six-day trial, a jury concluded that the first son lied on a federal gun-purchase background-check form by falsely claiming he was not a drug addict. The jury deliberated for three hours, starting Monday afternoon following the conclusion of closing arguments.

Hunter Biden was convicted on two charges for lying about his crack-cocaine addiction on federal gun paperwork when he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver on October 12, 2018. Additionally, he was found guilty of a third charge for possessing the firearm while addicted to crack cocaine.

According to National Review, the criminal trial exposed deep rifts within the Biden family. Hunter’s ex-wife, Kathleen Buhle, and his deceased brother Beau Biden’s widow, Hallie Biden, testified against him. This created an emotional divide within the family, especially when Naomi Biden, the eldest daughter of Buhle and Hunter, testified for the defense, pitting mother against daughter.

Federal prosecutors Derek Hines and Leo Wise led the case against Hunter Biden as part of special counsel David Weiss’s legal team. Throughout the trial, Weiss was present in the courtroom, often seen conversing and eating chocolates during breaks.

Prosecutors presented what they described as “overwhelming evidence” of Hunter Biden’s drug addiction at the time he completed the gun purchase. This evidence included witness testimony, text messages, videos, images, bank records, and excerpts from Hunter’s memoir. Key testimonies from Hallie Biden, gun salesman Gordon Cleveland, and ex-girlfriend Zoe Kestan were crucial in establishing Hunter Biden’s pattern of drug use and his decision to lie about his addiction.

Defense attorney Abbe Lowell argued that Hunter Biden’s behavior had improved around the time of the gun purchase, asserting that he did not “knowingly” lie on the federal paperwork. However, the testimonies of Kestan and Cleveland, along with Hunter Biden’s own admissions of drug use in texts and memoir excerpts, posed significant challenges to the defense’s narrative.

Throughout the trial, Lowell conducted extensive cross-examinations of the prosecution’s witnesses and disputed the context of the evidence presented. However, Leo Wise’s cross-examination of Naomi Biden, where he scrutinized her text messages with her father from October 2018, proved to be a pivotal moment, undermining her defense testimony.

Before the verdict, President Biden stated he would respect the jury’s decision and would not pardon his son if convicted. At the trial’s onset, President Biden issued a statement expressing pride in his son’s efforts to overcome his drug addiction.

Hunter Biden is scheduled to face another trial in September on nine federal tax charges related to his alleged failure to pay over $1.4 million in taxes over four years.
