Biden says voters are ‘not going to pay attention’ to GOP investigations of his family:
President Biden on Wednesday brushed aside investigations by House Republicans into his family members, including his son Hunter Biden, saying the public has more weighty issues to worry about.
In an interview that aired on PBS NewsHour on Wednesday, Mr. Biden spoke about House Republicans’ plans to use their new majority and accompanying subpoena power to probe Hunter Biden and James Biden, the president’s brother.
“The public’s not going to pay attention to that,” Mr. Biden said. “They want these guys to do something. If the only thing they can do is make up things about my family, it’s not going to go very far.”
House Republicans are looking into questionable business deals and accusations of influence peddling by the other two Bidens. Last month, GOP lawmakers also opened a new avenue, looking into Hunter Biden’s art dealings.
Hunter Biden is also under investigation by the U.S. attorney in Delaware on suspicion of tax crimes. He has denied any wrongdoing. --->READ MORE HERE

Lawmakers press Twitter execs on FBI’s role in censoring Hunter Biden story
Former Twitter executives told lawmakers Wednesday that they made a mistake when they censored the Hunter Biden laptop computer story weeks before the 2020 presidential election, but they brushed off accusations that they were directed to do so by the federal government.
Testifying before the House Oversight and Accountability Committee, Twitter’s former chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, former deputy general counsel James Baker and former head of trust and safety Yoel Roth said they regretted the platform’s suppression of the New York Post’s story on Oct. 14, 2020, exposing the laptop.
“At that moment, with limited information, Twitter made a mistake,” Mr. Roth testified. “I’ve been clear that in my judgment at the time, Twitter should not have taken action to block the Post’s reporting. And just 24 hours after doing so, the company acknowledged its error.”
Ms. Gadde acknowledged that “Twitter had not fully appreciated the potential impact of the policy on the free press and others” when it decided to suppress the story.
Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, seized on the witnesses as they dismissed concerns that the government was involved. He noted that the FBI held weekly meetings with Twitter executives before the company suppressed the New York Post’s report.
Mr. Jordan refused to believe that the FBI did not have a hand in Twitter’s move to spike the story on the platform. --->READ MORE HERE
