House Republicans are taking aim at the White House after President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was left off the Marine One passenger list following a longstanding tradition of omitting him from other records such as its visitor logs.
“The White House may not have helped that the president is keeping far away from Hunter’s local woes,” Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich reported Tuesday. “We were all just watching the First Family’s return from Delaware on Marine One, and my colleague Peter Doocy noticed someone hop off the chopper who was not on the passenger list the White House gave us: Hunter Biden.”
“So, Hunter is apparently here at the White House after defying a Congressional subpoena while being indicted and facing a maximum of 17 years behind bars on financial crimes plus another 25 on the gun charges that he is facing,” Heinrich said.
The Hunter Biden omission prompted the House Republican Conference’s social media account to question what else the White House is leaving out of its records regarding the president’s son.
“Fox News reports that Hunter Biden is currently at the White House after being spotted exiting Marine One,” the House GOP account wrote on X. “He was not on the White House’s passenger manifest. What other manifests and visitor logs has Hunter Biden been left off of?”
During a Thursday press briefing, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced a question about whether the White House will announce Hunter Biden’s presence on Marine One moving forward.
“That’s something that we’ve never done,” Jean-Pierre responded. “This is the family. The family gets to travel with the president, and that’s been the case with every other president, and so it’s not something that we have done or we would be doing moving forward.”
