A bombshell transcript released by the House Oversight Committee on Tuesday proves that Secretary of State Antony Blinken lied to Congress about the Biden administration’s handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop.
The transcript, which is a portion of Blinken’s testimony to the committee on October 26, 2022, shows that Blinken knowingly misled Congress about the existence of the laptop and its contents.
In his testimony, Blinken said that the administration had “no evidence” that the laptop was authentic, and that the administration was “not aware” of any evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden.
However, the transcript shows that Blinken knew that the laptop was authentic, and that the administration was aware of evidence of wrongdoing by Hunter Biden. In fact, the transcript shows that Blinken was personally involved in efforts to downplay the laptop story.
“Have a few minutes next week to grab a cup of coffee?” Hunter asked. “I know you are impossibly busy, but would like to get your advice on a couple of things.”
“Absolutely,” Blinken replied. “I’m just about to land in Tokyo en route back DC from Burma. I’ll be in office from Tuesday on. Copying Linda in my office to find a good time. Look forward to seeing you. Tony.”
Hunter then forwarded Blinken’s response to his business partner and fellow Burisma board member, Devon Archer.
The release of the transcript leaves Republicans at a crossroads. They can either continue to work with the Biden administration, or they can take a more aggressive approach.
The GOP should begin the impeachment process for Blinken. Even if he is not convicted, there is immense value in carrying out a very public impeachment process, exposing the fact that he did lie to Congress. They should make Democrats go on record defending him. Make the press proclaim their own hypocrisy. And they should make Biden own the corruption within his administration. You don’t need a Senate conviction to accomplish those things.
The Biden administration has repeatedly denied the authenticity of the laptop and its contents. However, the transcript released by the House Oversight Committee proves that the administration knew about the laptop and its contents, and that it lied to Congress about them.
The release of the transcript is a major blow to the Biden administration. It is further evidence that the administration is not being honest with the American people. It is also a sign that the administration is willing to lie to cover up its wrongdoing.
Here is Antony Blinken’s sworn testimony to Congress that he had “NO” email correspondence with Hunter Biden.
