Jesse Watters of Fox News demonstrated a profound emotional response when confronted with Jessica Tarlov’s claim that a monetary transaction totaling $200,000, which was transmitted by Joe Biden to Jim Biden on March 1, 2018, does not provide irrefutable proof linking the latter to international business operations.
During one segment of the television program, Mike Johnson, the newly appointed Speaker of the House, articulated the conservative perspective that commercial transactions involved Hunter Biden’s father and other family members. Additionally, it was noted that Republican members of the House of Representatives are considering whether to issue a subpoena compelling Hunter Biden to appear in court and provide testimony concerning the aforementioned allegations.
Jessica and her ilk for years have said, ‘Well, you don’t have money going directly into Joe Biden’s bank account.’ All right, so now we have a check for $200,000 from one company through the brother to Joe’s bank account,” Watters began.
“Ok, you still say that that’s not from overseas. That was a loan. Ok, ok. What happens if the next check originates somewhere really bad, Jessica? And I mean really bad. And it goes through Hunter or James, and it goes directly into Joe Biden’s checking account? Is that your smoking gun? Is that your smoking gun, Jessica? Because, as you said, that was a smoking gun if money went from overseas directly into Joe Biden’s bank account. If a check comes out at some point from that avenue, is that a smoking gun?” Watters asked as tensions began to rise.
“Ok, so two things —” Tarlov began before Watters immediately shot back, “Yes or no?”
“No,” Tarlov said.
“It’s not? Woah, woah, woah. Jessica! For a year, you said, ‘The money never hit his bank account.’ What if I have a check that hits his bank account that comes from overseas? Is that not a smoking gun?” Watters asked.
Tarlov attempted to interject while Watters persistently expressed his opinions.
“Someone help me out,” she pleaded with her co-hosts as Watters continued to interrupt. “Ok, if, uh, uh, uh, Ok —”
Tarlov was granted the opportunity to clarification that the check being examined by the commission was issued with a date in 2018, prior to Biden assuming the presidency.
“Is he in elected office, and did he do something about it? So, that check, that 2018 check, was when he was not doing anything except hanging around, and there was an explanation for it. So if you get a check, then you can connect that to an action that he took,” Tarlov said.
“Oh, no, not to an action that he took! That was just an action that he took. Because before you said none of the money from overseas went into his checking account—” Watters began before Tarlov jumped in and said, “That’s not true!”
“So now it’s an action?” Watters demanded.
“You are yelling, and there’s no reason for it,” Tarlov complained.
“There’s a reason,” Watters continued. “I was promised a smoking gun, and if I deliver a smoking gun you have to admit that gun was smoking.”

House Speaker Mike Johnson, who was recently sworn in, firmly supported the notion that committees controlled by the Republican Party could issue subpoenas to first son Hunter Biden on Sunday. Such action would be taken to compel his testimony amidst ongoing investigations into the dubious international business dealings of both him and his father.
Throughout an interview facilitated by Maria Bartiromo of Fox News, Johnson was questioned regarding the issuance of subpoenas that were specifically targeted at Hunter Biden.
“I’m looking at that. I think that desperate times call for desperate measures, and perhaps that is overdue,” he said.
Johnson, citing his professional experience as an attorney, disclosed that he is currently involved in discussions with legislative branch legal representatives. In addition, he emphasized that a definitive conclusion regarding the subject at hand has not yet been reached.
“We’re trying to move forward on some of this very aggressively,” Johnson told Bartiromo [see video below]. “I think the American people are owed these answers. And I think our suspicions about all this and the evidence that we have gathered so far, as you know, are affirming what many of us feared may be the worst.”
