Rep. Dean: There are Questions That Need to be Asked on the Biden Scandal But “I Don’t Have Any”

I suppose this represents progress in Washington. On “CNN News Central,” co-host John Berman actually asked a Democratic House member about the allegations against President Joe Biden. The response from Rep. Madeleine Dean (D., Pa.) captured the increasingly incomprehensible position of members as the evidence of corruption has mounted and implicated the President. Dean admitted that there are legitimate questions that should be answered but stressed that she does not have any herself. In other words, the public has a right to know, but I will not help them find out.

In the interview, Berman asked, “On the subject of what could be a pending impeachment inquiry into President Biden, what questions, if any, do you have about Joe Biden’s connection to Hunter Biden’s business dealings?”

Dean answered,

“I don’t have any at this point. But, certainly, there are questions that can be asked, and should be answered, if there was any connection. But we don’t see any evidence of that whatsoever. So, they’re making it up [out of] whole cloth.”

Berman then fairly followed up, “And where would you learn that evidence, if not for an inquiry?”

The response was an attack on the Committee and its chairman rather than answer the question:

“Well, sadly, we won’t learn it by way of our Judiciary Committee, which is now led by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH). He’s Chair of Judiciary. And he’s proven himself to be very weak in the hearings that we have had this Congress. He’s just not hitting the mark on any of the things he’s trying to prove. And what is so dangerous is the willingness of Mr. Jordan and others on the Republican side of the dais in Judiciary to absolutely peddle in lies. They call all of our witnesses to swear to tell the truth. And yet, they peddle lies as they ask their questions. So, we’re not going to get good information under any kind of leadership from Mr. McCarthy or Mr. Jordan.”

The exchange was telling because the room for movement is being dramatically reduced by the new evidence. Members and the media first denied the legitimacy of the story, claimed that the laptop was Russian disinformation, and then insisted that there was no evidence. Even with two IRS whistleblowers saying that the Hunter Biden plea bargain was the result of political influence and special dealing, politicians and pundits continue to cite the plea bargain as the end of the matter, a spin predicted over a year ago.

What is striking is the lack of embarrassment about admitting that there are questions that must be answered on corruption while disclaiming any obligation as a member of Congress to assist in getting those answers. Like her colleagues, Dean has avoided any substantive questions of the claims of special dealing and influence peddling with witnesses testifying before her.

There is still an element of willful blindness in these answers. Despite the detailed testimony of the whistleblowers, millions in transfers to the Biden family, and proof that the President has lied for years, Dean is still maintaining “we don’t see any evidence of that whatsoever.” She continues to demand “where’s the evidence?

It is also striking how the members and the media praised Republicans who broke from their party to support the impeachment of Donald Trump (as many did in the Nixon impeachment). Yet, there is no pressure on Democrats to show the same independence. It has been a unified front as Democratic members have opposed every effort to investigate or to expose the evidence on influence peddling by the Bidens.

This is why Aldous Huxley maintained that “facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”

  1. It’s been said, by more and more citizens in this country, that even if Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Jake Sullivan, Susan Rice, Hunter Biden, came clean and admitted that they were ‘guilty’ of the crimes of which they have been accused (where is the evidence?), even if they did so, there would still be people who would find some way to ignore it, let it fly, and possibly even claim it wasn’t a ‘real’ admission – it must have been coerced.
    We should put the Bidens under a water-boarding regimen — we might finally get the real truth, not the Democrat Party ‘truth.’

  2. The Democrats certainly do stick to the Party line and all their lies, conspiracy theories, and misinformation. They are moving en mass like lemmings.

  3. I give up. Today’s dems are crooked as the day is long and no low is too low. They have made a genuine mockery of our government since 2008 (they certainly tried before, but not like this), they are too well connected, and at this point I don’t know how we dislodge them. I think America may be in its death throes. May she rest in peace. Meanwhile the rest of us have to figure out where the heck to go, because this madness is global. Modern dem voters are ignorant, sure; the people they support have exposed themselves as legitimately evil. Would love to see an exception regarding the left anywhere in the West.

    1. ” I think America may be in its death throes. May she rest in peace. “

      I agree, but there is one hope, the American people. America was asleep when Obama won his second term. That is why we have entered this period where the America we know is dying. To reverse what is happening, the people must insist on the rule of law and rest their faith in the Constitution.

  4. What a fool you are. You were told in advance, if your behavior didn’t improve, you would be banned. You were banned for a short while and let back on. You continued with your abominable behavior and were banned permanently.

    Now that your posts are being removed you think it is because of what you say? Pure stupidity. You were banned and don’t recognize it because you are lying or stupid.

    It dosn’t matter what you say on the blog. Most of it is nonsense or lies.

    The fact that your postings are those of a screwball have nothing to do with the deletions. You repeatedly broke the civility rules and despite multiple warnings you are now permanently banned.

    I haven’t been banned. I’m still able to post. If my posts are deleted it means I’m being censored. Nothing I’ve posted violates the civility rule.

    1. ” It’s deliberate censorship.”

      Censorship of what? Stupid inaccurate comments that don’t make sense which tell everyone else you don’t know what you are talking about. Most people on either side of the aisle laugh at what you say.

      No you are not censored for banned for your political views. You are banned because of your behavior. You chose how to act, now live with it.

    2. Why anyone can use the user name of “Anonymous” is beyond me…..perhaps one day each week we should all use that name when posting…..and every single post show up as being made by “Anonymous”. One thing for sure….the quality and content of the many posts made would be far advanced over those made regularly by one who has not got the courage to sign in using his real name. Trolls prefer being anonymous.

      If I were a Mod here….there would be no anonymous posts made…ever…and upon one trying….it would be instant and permanent ban.

  5. In response to Thersites:

    “So you admit to lying?
    No, just pointing out that…”

    No. You admitted to lying. Now with your admission to lying censored, you can’t prove otherwise. Yet there are identifiable unique individuals who have said you lied. Therefore, all now know that you admitted to lying.

    1. What the hell are you yammering about? I only asked a question. How is that lying?

      “I’m rubber and you’re glue” is not an argument.

      This is pure hebephrenia.

      1. The remark was apparently directed toward the anonymous low-life, not you. If ever placed in such a situation one should assume such comments are directed toward anonymous, not a person with an identity.

    2. Anonymous writes: “Lol! Nope. I didn’t admit anything.”

      It was a backward admission that you recognize you lie. But here you are telling the truth. You don’t admit things even after proven wrong. You are a doofus.

  6. Anonymous has already had his post deleted, but this is what he said. “See McConnell vs. United States. It’s all there. This is straight from conservatives at SCOTUS.”

    This idiot who doesn’t know his a$$ from his elbow provides SCOTUS decisions without knowing or understanding what they say. He is an incompetent fool who hasn’t provided any facts to back up what he says. Why does anyone listen to him?

    1. Anonymous writes ” I just provided you with the ruling that backs up my assertion “

      You provided squat and others already told you how dumb you were to cite that case. You lie a lot and you lack knowledge. That is all due to your lack of brain power.

      You have been trolling the blog. Now in a way you are being trolled and don’t like it. You are simply getting what you give all the time.

  7. Turley, who just can’t stop trying to pump life into the “Hunter Biden Scandal” claims: “Despite the detailed testimony of the whistleblowers, millions in transfers to the Biden family, and proof that the President has lied for years, Dean is still maintaining “we don’t see any evidence of that whatsoever.” She continues to demand “where’s the evidence?””

    I also ask: WHERE’S THE EVIDENCE? Where are the cancelled checks, wire transfers, the proof of who paid money, how much money was paid and who received the money? Where is the “proof that the President has lied for years”? That last one is beneath you, Turley. Where’s the proof? You’ve become just like Mark Levin, who casually tosses out references to a “Biden Crime Family” despite no proof of anything other than Hunter Biden is a troubled person. You’ve chosen to side with low lifes like Marjorie Taylor Greene who flashed pornographic pictures of Hunter for no reason other than to embarrass the Biden family, and, serendipitously, prove that she’s unfit to serve in the House of Representatives. There are NO communications or evidences of cash flowing to or from JOE Biden, so where do you get off making such outrageous claims?

    1. Gigi: No evidence? For one, here are detailed financial transactions from the Chinese to the Bidens released by the House Committee:

      …And unless you’ve had your head in the sand you’ve seen Biden with your own eyes denying that he ever talked to Hunter or his associates about business dealings. But yesterday, the White House Press Secretary changed the narrative from that denial to “… has never been involved in business with Hunter.” You are intentionally ignoring facts you see every day.

    2. Honestly Gigi ?

      What evidence do you need ?

      Are you really trying to claim that wire Transfers that Banks have provided to the House are frauds ?

      Are you really trying to claim that Hunter Biden attempted to extorted millions from the Chinese – and got it
      But you will not Take Hunters own words or the bank records of the transfers – unless you have a check with Joe Biden’s fingerprints on it ?

      YOU sat here and demanded that Paul Manafort be convicted on far flimsier evidence than there is against Hunter – or even Joe.

  8. “I suppose this represents progress in Washington.”

    – Professor Turley

    The Good Professor references the progress of the progressives who are progressing toward communism.

    The communists (liberals, progressives, socialists, democrats, RINOs, AINOs) could not care less about a society of laws, the American thesis of freedom and self-reliance, the pursuit of happiness in freedom, the Constitution, America or anything approaching ethics.

    All they want is copious amounts of endless “free stuff” and “free status.”

  9. But, certainly, there are questions that can be asked, and should be answered, if there was any connection.

    Well that was a laydown opportunity for the interviewer to follow up with: You say there are question that can be asked, what questions would those be?

  10. As a monolithic organization intent upon ironclad political rule, the Democrat Party has come to foreswear evidence as that means by which truth is ultimately had. Because evidence is what presents a degree of probability of wrongdoing, the Party will neither acknowledge any nor build upon it for fear the facts of it will likely result in an inconvenient truth it intends to keep hidden. It is why Party sycophants like Madeleine Dean deceive their followers saying there is no evidence and that nothing further needs to be uncovered. Ask no questions, Madeleine Dean, so that you risk no troublesome truth.
