James Biden, President Joe Biden’s younger brother, testified in a private interview on Capitol Hill as part of House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry into the Biden family’s business dealings. James Biden asserted that President Biden “never had any involvement” in his family’s business ventures.

He claimed that over his 50-year career, Joe Biden had no direct or indirect financial interest in his business activities. The interview is part of the GOP’s ongoing efforts to investigate allegations that the Biden family used their name for financial gains.

The Republican-led inquiry has faced criticism for a lack of evidence directly implicating President Biden. Last week, an FBI informant who alleged a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme involving the president, his son Hunter, and a Ukrainian energy company was charged with fabricating the story.

Critics argue that the impeachment inquiry lacks substance and is based on dishonest and unsubstantiated allegations. James Biden, along with Hunter Biden, was subpoenaed by the committee in November.

The impeachment inquiry, initiated in September, has included depositions of former Biden family associates.  Witnesses consistently stated that they saw no evidence of President Biden’s direct involvement in his family’s business ventures.

While Republicans, led by Oversight Chairman James Comer, have indicated their intent to pursue impeachment charges against the president, the effort has faced challenges, with attention shifting to other issues such as Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ handling of the U.S.-Mexico border situation.

House Democrats have remained united against the impeachment effort, characterizing it as a “sham process.” Despite Republicans’ pushback, Democrats argue that there is no tangible evidence supporting the impeachment of President Biden. The focus on the Biden family’s business dealings continues to be a point of contention between the two parties.
