Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said that he has seen “no evidence” that President Biden was involved in his son Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.

“I’m going to take the same position that I’ve taken since 2019 that all I can say is there’s some indication, maybe some compromise with China particularly, but I have no evidence of it,” Grassley told CNN’s Manu Raju on Wednesday.

He continued, saying the facts “haven’t taken me to that point where I can say that the president’s guilty of anything.”

The statements come as Hunter Biden appeared at the Capitol on Wednesday morning defying the subpoena from House Republicans for their investigation into his business dealings meant to be a probe into his father’s oncoming impeachment inquiry.

Hunter Biden said he was at the Capitol to testify in a public setting, going against the investigators’ request for a closed-door deposition.

Later Wednesday, House Republicans formalized the impeachment inquiry into Biden with a House vote. Lawmakers voted 221-212 along party lines to approve the authorization of the inquiry.

The probe includes deep dives into the personal and business finances of the Biden family members and his son’s failure to pay taxes, currently being investigated by the Justice Department.

Biden has repeatedly denied involvement in his son’s business, and in his speech Wednesday, Hunter Biden reiterated the same sentiment. In a statement released minutes after the House voted, Biden ripped the House GOP for formalizing the inquiry, calling it a “baseless political stunt.”
