“The reaction to what you’ve said in public, to what you said to the Committee on the Hill, to what you’ve been telling us in this interview, is that, like there’s no corruption here at all.

In part one of his interview, Carlson shared a personalized letter then-Vice President Joe Biden wrote to Archer in Jan. 2011, before Hunter Biden and Devon Archer became board members of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma.

Archer told the Committee that the Biden family “brand” kept Burisma in business and “intimidated” people from messing with Burisma, according to a transcript released Thursday.
Archer also said Joe Biden attended dinners with Hunter’s foreign business associates and put Joe Biden on speakerphone during business meetings over 20 times, Republican Kentucky Rep. James Comer, Chair of the House Oversight Committee, said in a statement.
White House spokesperson Ian Sams tweeted that Archer’s testimony “confirms President Biden was not involved in his son’s business” shortly after the transcript was released.
