Devon Archer, a former business associate of Hunter Biden, has testified before the House Oversight Committee, confirming that President Joe Biden was involved in over twenty phone calls with his son. These calls, which began in 2014, were related to Hunter’s foreign business dealings.
Archer, who was also a director of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma alongside Hunter Biden, was questioned for approximately five hours during a closed-door hearing. The committee members, both Republicans and Democrats, took turns interrogating Archer about the alleged foreign business dealings involving the then-Vice President Joe Biden.
Archer’s testimony contradicts the Biden administration’s repeated claims that the president did not discuss foreign business dealings with his son. Rep. Dan Goldman (D-NY), the only Democrat present during Archer’s testimony, stated that Archer confirmed Hunter spoke to his father daily, and about twenty times over a ten-year relationship. However, according to Goldman, they never discussed business dealings and only exchanged pleasantries.
Dem Rep. Daniel Goldman just CONFIRMED that Joe Biden coordinated with Hunter Biden’s business partners “regularly” (!!!)
What we’re they talking about?
According to a sweaty, visibly shaken Goldman: “just the weather, ok guys!”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a member of the Oversight Committee, interpreted Archer’s statements differently. She claimed that Archer’s testimony revealed that the Bidens were involved in influence peddling. Greene described the testimony as “extremely damning.”
The Oversight Committee had subpoenaed Archer last month, alleging that he played a significant role in the Biden family’s foreign business dealings. Archer’s attorney, Matthew Schwartz, stated that Archer would answer all questions honestly.
The Department of Justice has recently requested a date for Archer to report to prison following his conviction last year in a fraud case involving a Native American tribal entity. The prison sentence had been delayed due to the ongoing appeals process.
