In an Op-Ed for The Messenger, constitutional law scholar Jonathan Turley exposed a potentially costly “breathtaking mistake” made by White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. The mistake, Turley argued, could land President Joe Biden in serious legal trouble.
Turley’s revelation came in response to a press conference held by Hunter Biden in which he announced his intention to flout a subpoena issued by the House Committee on Oversight. Jean-Pierre stated that the president was “certainly familiar with what his son was going to say.” This statement, according to Turley, suggested that the President spoke with Hunter before his act of contempt and discussed his statement.

OOPS! Did KJP mess up? Did she stick both feet in Biden’s impeachment coffin? Claiming Joe knew what Hunter was going to do. Contempt of Congress? My my.https://t.co/hb5cRpEuWf
The constitutional scholar outlined four potential charges that could be brought against President Biden: bribery, conspiracy, abuse of power, and obstruction. Turley explained that if the allegations were true and the President did indeed confer with Hunter on defying Congress, it would be a “breathtaking mistake” and could lead to an obstruction charge.
Independent journalist ‘amuse’ concurred with Turley’s assessment, noting that there is evidence that Joe Biden and Eric Swallwell obstructed Congress by conferring with Hunter regarding his decision to ignore the congressional subpoena.
When pressed by Fox News’ Peter Doocy on whether President Biden knew in advance about Hunter’s decision to defy the congressional subpoena, Jean-Pierre replied that she had nothing further to add and that the President was familiar with what Hunter was going to say. She emphasized that the President was proud of Hunter and his efforts to rebuild his life.
Kind of wild that KJP confessed that Biden knew his son was going to obstruct justice and engage in a criminal act of contempt to keep from giving testimony focused on his father's influence peddling. Have to imagine the House is super interested in that.https://t.co/pnTn48AZnS— Mollie (@MZHemingway) December 14, 2023
As the legal battle against the Bidens continues, Hunter’s public address has exposed a new front, and if the law is applied as it has been to others, such as Steve Bannon, Hunter could be indicted within a matter of weeks. Bannon was subpoenaed in late September, held in contempt in October, and indicted in November. He was convicted in only four days.
The potential legal implications of this “breathtaking mistake” remain to be seen, but it is clear that the Biden family is facing a challenging legal landscape in the months ahead.
