Reporter CHALLENGES Biden on Camera – He Tried To Ignore Him!
(TheRedWire.com) – President Joe Biden is having difficulty answering questions from reporters — that is, when his handlers let him talk to the media. On Thursday, June 16, the president signed the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 2022 into law during a short ceremony. Numerous Democratic politicians were present when a reporter asked Biden why his administration had not sanctioned wealthy Russian billionaire Elena Baturina, who conducted business with his son, Hunter Biden.
"Why haven't you sanctioned Russian oligarch Elena Baturina who did business with your son?"

Biden was either confused or played the part. Either way, he ignored the reporter and began talking to others around him. Then, another reporter shouted at the president, asking Biden why he wouldn’t answer the question. Still, another piled on and asked what Biden was afraid of.
According to the New York Post, in 2014, Hunter Biden received $3.5 million from Baturina. Between May and December 2015, a Senate Report showed that Russia’s richest woman, and widow of a former Moscow mayor, sent 11 wire transfers with a note describing them as a loan agreement.
So far, Biden has held a grand total of nine interviews, eight of which were solo news conferences since assuming office. Former Presidents Barack Obama and Donald Trump held 27 interviews and 21 news conferences. So why won’t Biden face the press?
