“Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy dismayed his fellow co-hosts Wednesday as he said House Republicans have yet to find evidence of President Joe Biden participating in an influencing-peddling scheme.

The president’s son is set to appear for a closed-door deposition with the Oversight and Judiciary committees, according to a joint statement. House Republicans and Biden’s legal team agreed to the Feb. 28 deposition after he previously defied a congressional subpoena in early January, leading lawmakers to prepare to hold him in contempt.

“The Republicans have yet to produce any direct evidence of misconduct by Joe Biden,” Doocy said.

“I don’t know,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt said.

“Joe Biden was in on meetings with every major deal in regarding Hunter Biden,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said. “He said ‘my dad is sitting next to me’ while talking to a Chinese CFC official.”

Kilmeade referred to a WhatApp message from July 30, 2017, uncovered by an investigation called “Sportsman,” where the younger Biden threatened a Chinese official by saying he was “sitting here with my father.” This message emerged in June when an IRS whistleblower testified to Congress, three years after then-candidate Biden assured the public in 2020 that he had never discussed business with his son and that he never made money from China.

Earhardt pointed to a $200,000 check wired to Joe Biden by his brother, James, on March 1, 2018 that had been classified as a “loan repayment,” according to records released by the House Oversight Committee.

In the summer of 2017, Northern International Capital, a company associated with Chinese energy company CEFC, wired $5 million to Hudson West III, a joint venture founded by Hunter and a CEFC associate, bank records show. Hudson West III then sent Owasco P.C., a firm owned by Hunter, $400,000. Then, Owasco P.C. wired $150,000 to James and Sara Biden’s company, Lion Hall Group. Sara then deposited $50,000 she withdrew from Lion Hall Group into her and James’ personal checking account. Lastly, Sara then sent a “loan repayment” check to Joe Biden for $40,000 a couple of days later.

Kilmeade further pointed out how Biden used the pseudonym “Robin Ware” to exchange 54 private emails to his son’s business associate and accountant, Eric Schwerin, according to records released by the House Ways and Means Committee.

“And when he looked Peter [Doocy] in the eye and said ‘I know nothing about my son’s overseas business dealings,’ he was flat-out lying!” Kilmeade said.

Despite his colleagues laying out several pieces of background information, Doocy still was not convinced.

“To impeach somebody, you need direct evidence of misconduct by Joe Biden,” Doocy said. “Look, Hunter Biden, it sure looks like he traded on his name and he’s gonna have plenty of time —”

“With his dad, the role his dad played is key,” Kilmeade interjected.

“Pardon me, Brian. We’re have plenty of times, the Republicans are, to ask him a million questions. It will be interesting to hear what he has to say. But right now, you know, according to Republicans —” Doocy said.

“What Republicans?” Kilmeade asked.

“Some Republicans says they’ve got the goods on Hunter Biden and Joe Biden, but a number of Republicans who I’ve spoken to on Capitol Hill say there’s no direct evidence of misconduct by the current president,” Doocy said.

“It’s just so corrupt. The whole thing is so corrupt,” Earhardt added.

“This is just so unbelievable,” Kilmeade said.

The president’s son’s former business associate Devon Archer testified before the Oversight Committee in late July, and said they benefited off of the “Biden brand,” a statement from the House Oversight Committee said. Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene claimed Archer also testified that Hunter Biden spoke with his father “more than 20 times about their business deals,” which was later contradicted by a transcript of his testimony released by the committee.
