Republican Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) humiliated a corporate media reporter for claiming during a press conference that Americans don’t see any evidence for impeaching Democrat President Joe Biden.
During the Tuesday presser, Perry responded by pointing out several examples of evidence of Biden’s corruption.
The congressman was responding to a question from UK Channel 4 Washington correspondent Siobhan Kennedy.
Kennedy tried to claim that the American people have not seen evidence to support allegations against Biden before alleging that the move from Republicans is just “political revenge for the impeachment of Donald Trump.”
Perry fired back by noting that many Americans are in the dark about the scandal because mainstream reporters like her “don’t report on it.”
The exchange happened during a press conference held by members of Congress outside the Capitol Tuesday.
Lawmakers addressed the media just a few hours after House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) announced a congressional impeachment inquiry into President Biden.
Perry, the House Freedom Caucus chair, motioned to Kennedy to ask him one final question before he left the podium.
She said, “Can I just ask, what actual evidence do you have as opposed to allegations to show to the American people that would merit an actual impeachment inquiry of Joe Biden, and prove that today isn’t just about –”
Before she could finish, Perry interjected with a sarcastic reply, saying: “Oh, I don’t know.”
She then finished her question by asking whether the GOP is going after Biden “for the sake of enacting political revenge for the impeachment of Donald Trump.”
Perry immediately shut Kennedy down.
“This isn’t about political revenge,” he declared.
“We have the bank accounts.
“We can see – ma’am – you can see that the homes that the Bidens own can’t be afforded on a congressional or a Senate salary.”
“You also understand that it’s not normal for family members to receive millions of dollars from overseas interests.
“Those things aren’t normal,” he continued.
“That’s not normal to have 20 shell companies.
“These things are not normal, and it alludes to not only just widespread corruption, but money laundering, if not influence-peddling itself.”
Adding in Biden’s self-proclaimed hand in the firing of a prosecutor looking into his son’s business dealings in Ukraine, Perry said, “And we also have the vice president at the time on record saying that the prosecutor was fired: ‘Well, son of a b—-, the prosecutor was fired.’
“Because the prosecutor was going after the company that his son was working on.”
“That’s what we have,” Perry proclaimed.
“If you can’t see that. If you are that blind – I’ll turn it over to the attorneys,” he said as he invited others to replace him on the podium.
As he walked away, the corporate media report tried to get in the last word, saying: “The American people can’t see that.
“They think it’s political revenge.”
Perry fired back, “Because you don’t report on it.”
