CNN aired on Wednesday a report devastating to President Joe Biden's claims that he never engaged in the business dealings of his son, Hunter Biden.
Biden has repeatedly denied any involvement in Hunter Biden's overseas business deals. The CNN segment began with Biden's own words: "I have never discussed with my son or my brother or anyone else anything having to do with their businesses, period."
Then, Pamela Brown, chief investigative correspondent at CNN, dove into devastating detail demonstrating how that is allegedly not true.
"Despite his denials, a CNN review of the laptop data, as well as other public material, shows that Joe Biden did interact with some of his son's associates while serving as vice president, though it's unclear exactly what was discussed," Brown narrated.
One example, the Republicans cite Miguel Aleman Magnani, a Mexican businessman and son of the former president who Hunter was trying to woo. In 2014, Aleman Magnani and his dad were photographed at the White House with then-Vice President Biden. In a later email, Hunter Biden reminds Aleman Magnani of the favors he's done for him.
"We've been talking about business deals and partnerships for seven years. I have brought every single person you have ever asked me to bring to the F'ing White House and the vice president's house and the inauguration."
The report went on to demonstrate how Hunter and the president's brothers, Frank and James, have used the influence of Joe Biden to broker their interests.
Despite even CNN's own admission that Biden, contrary to his promises, has been involved in some of the business dealings of his family, the White House told the network it stands by Biden's previous assertions.

What is the background?
Biden and his family's business dealings will be a major political story this year. House Republicans, who won control of the House in the midterm elections, have promised to investigate the president.
House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R) said the investigation will probe whether Biden was "directly involved with Hunter Biden's business deals."
Like CNN's report alleges, House Republicans claim that Biden "personally participated in" Hunter's business dealings.
