(WATCH) Jen Psaki Gets Grilled By Reporter With Questions On Biden And His Son’s Shady Business (VIDEO)
During Wednesday’s White House press briefing, Press Secretary Jen Psaki was questioned repeatedly if President Joe Biden did favors for his son’s overseas business partners regularly.
“Was it common for President Biden to do favors for Hunter Biden’s international business partners like writing college recommendations for their kids?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy inquired.
Psaki had no concrete response, saying, “I’ve seen the report. I have no confirmation or comments on a report about whether or not the President, when he was a private citizen, wrote a college recommendation letter for an individual.”
Doocy did not relent, adding, “A college recommendation letter, though, from, at the time, a former vice president would be a big deal. So do we know what President might have gotten in return for doing a favor like that?”
“Again, I have no confirmation of any recommendation letter the President wrote when he was a private citizen, by the way, not serving in public office. That’s even the report,” Psaki answered
Doocy shifted and began to question if Joe Biden was ever office mates with his son and brother, Jim.
“So there’s evidence that the President at one point was office mates with Hunter and his brother Jim here in DC,” Doocy continued.
Psaki disputed the report, suggesting it was false. Doocy replied, “So when Hunter Biden’s emailing a landlord, ‘please have keys made available for new officemates, Joe Biden, Jill Biden, Jim Biden,’ that — you’re disputing?”
“They were not officemates, no,” claimed Psaki.
Doocy: "There's evidence that Biden was once office mates with Hunter and his brother Jim."
Psaki: "That is not accurate."

Controversy grew when it was revealed recently that Biden wrote a college recommendation letter for the son of a Chinese businessman that worked with Hunter Biden.
Hunter Biden and his business colleagues were involved in the joint venture between Rosemont Seneca and Chinese investment firms Bohai Capital and BHR when the letter was written, in 2017.
As Fox News reported, “In an email dated Jan. 3, 2017, and sent to Hunter Biden and his business associates Devon Archer and Jim Bolger, CEO of BHR Jonathan Li writes: “Gentlmen[sic], please find the attached resume of my son, Chris Li. He is applying the following colleges for this year.”
The letter was retrieved by the school, according to a later email from Li, however, the document has yet to be released to the public.
