(RepublicanInformer.com)- Controversial Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who is facing increasing pressure to resign over his awful handling of the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, is now facing fresh accusations about his possible relationship with Hunter Biden, the son of the president.
Republican Rep. Scott Perry asked Secretary Blinken during a congressional hearing whether it was true that he had been summoned by the FBI to reveal information about his relationship with Hunter Biden.
“How long was your recent interview with the FBI and was it a deposition,” he asked, catching Blinken by surprise.
He claimed he didn’t know what he was referring to, prompting Rep. Perry to ask him to confirm whether he was confirming that he had not had a “recent interview with the FBI” since he became secretary of state.
Blinken then stuttered, before saying he couldn’t confirm either way about any legal proceedings and whether or not they exist.
At this point, Democratic Chairman Rep. Gregory Meeks slammed his gavel and told Perry to stick to the topic of Afghanistan, but Perry said that Blinken “generally refuses” to answer any questions about Afghanistan and figured now would be a good time to talk about something “he should be intimately familiar with.”
Speaking to Fox News, Perry blasted Blinken’s behavior during the hearing, and called him a “poor excuse for a secretary of state.”
