President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden spoke “more than 20 times about their business deals,” Hunter Biden’s former business associate Devon Archer said Monday before the House Oversight Committee, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene told the Daily Caller.
“The biggest significant thing that has come out so far is that we now have proof that Joe Biden lied. He’s been telling everyone for years now that he knows nothing about Hunter Biden’s business deals, that he’s never talked to his son about it. Well, this morning Devon Archer confirmed for all of us that that is not true,” Greene said in an interview with the Caller.
“He told us in his transcribed interview that he heard Hunter Biden speak to Joe Biden more than 20 times about their business deals. Not about anything else, but about the business deals,” the House Oversight member added.
A transcript later released by the House Oversight Committee revealed that Greene’s account of Archer’s testimony was inaccurate.
The president famously said in 2019 that he had never spoken to his son about business.
Archer met with the lawmakers behind closed doors on Monday. The former business associate worked with Hunter Biden at Rosemont Seneca Partners, LLC, and was subpoenaed by Republicans to testify as a part of their investigation into the Biden family’s foreign business dealings.
Democratic New York Rep. Dan Goldman told reporters during the testimony’s break that Archer said, “Hunter would put his father on speakerphone with whomever was at dinner and there wasn’t any indication that he had any idea who was at dinner.”
Greene rebuked Goldman’s account of the interview.
“Dan Goldman came out during the break and tried to put a big spin on it. Physically sweating while he’s talking about, ‘Oh, they talked about weather — that’s not what Devon Archer said. Devon Archer said he heard them talk more than 20 times about Hunter’s business deals,” Greene said.

Archer did say that the “Bidens were in the business of influence peddling. And while influence peddling is not necessarily a crime… it is definitely very bad when it’s influence peddling involving the vice president of the United States,” Greene added.
The White House and Goldman did not immediately respond to an inquiry from the Caller.
