Biden wishes Republicans ‘lots of luck’ in plans to investigate son Hunter if they take the House
Biden wished House Republicans luck if they keep their promises to use a GOP majority for Hunter’s business investigations. He said that he couldn’t control what they would do.
As the balance of power is in flux in Congress, Biden was asked by the White House Wednesday about the plans of the Republicans to investigate his presidency, cabinet members, and certain policies. If they win the majority in both the House of Representatives or the Senate, Biden will also be asking questions.
Biden laughed and said, “Lots luck in your senior years, as my coach used a to say,” “Look, the American public is asking us to get on with our lives and do what’s best for them.
He said, “Look, they can’t control me, all I can do to make it better for the American people.”
