Fox News contributor Trey Gowdy dismissed President-elect Joe Biden’s introduction that allegations related to his son’s overseas business dealings were a “bad game”.
“If instant reports are accurate, you will have more than one investigation into Biden family members,” Gowdy told Outnumbered Overtime. “So, I don’t think the grand jury is a bad game, the United States Attorney’s Office is not a bad game.”
Gowdy added that the investigations are based on “probable cause”.
“Now, you’re welcome to pick Republican politicians, but you have two criminal investigations. This is not a bad game, this is called the probable cause, Joe, this is not a bad game.”
JOE BIDEN REQUESTS ‘FOUL PLAY’ WHILE DEFENDING SON HUNTER BUT SAYS HE IS ‘NOT AFFECTED’
During an interview with Stephen Colbert, the host of the CBS “Late Show,” which aired Thursday night, Biden expressed “confidence” in his son.
When Colbert brought up the Hunter Biden issue, he told the President-elect, “The people who want to make hay in Washington are going to try to use your son as a club against you.”
“How do you feel about that?” Asked Colbert. “And what do you have to say to these people?”
“I have great faith in our son,” replied Biden, referring to his wife, Jill. “I’m not worried about allegations being made against him. It’s used to reach me. I think it’s kind of foul, but look, it’s what it is and he’s a grown man, he is the smartest man I know. I mean, from purely intellectual capacity – and as long as he’s good, we’re good. “
The Biden transition team clarified that Biden was not calling the investigation a “foul,” but rather Republicans who for months have been using Hunter Biden’s businesses to pursue the president-elect.
When Colbert asked how he would deal with attacks by Republicans, Biden said he was willing to work with critics because it was best for the country.
The US attorney in Delaware is investigating Hunter Biden’s tax “affairs” – an investigation that began in 2018 but was only recently made public.
Hunter Biden has a complex network of international business relationships. His 2014 commitment to Ukrainian energy company Burisma has been scrutinized and has been a repeat target by President Trump during his campaign for the 2020 presidency.
The younger Biden was paid $ 50,000 a month as a board member of Burisma, which raised concern about the perception of a conflict of interest given his father was involved in US policy towards Ukraine.

Gowdy also highlighted the lack of media coverage of the events surrounding Hunter.
“There are three groups, Harris, I think that oversee our culture. They have the executive and there is an ongoing criminal investigation. They have a Congress, but you know the House is not going to do anything. And the Senate is just going to do something If you [Republicans] Win one of the seats in Georgia. And then of course you have the media. “
“Look, I don’t follow the news like you do, Harris, but I haven’t seen Joe Biden ask so many questions about his son,” Gowdy added to host Harris Faulkner. “You know what he said was that he had nothing to do with his son’s business. The answer, whether that is true or not, is relevant … If he is right, someone is doing business without his knowledge his name. and if he’s wrong then he’s told us something that is a lie and your credibility is always relevant. “
