Q: In fact, Hunter Biden never asked his father to take official actions on behalf of his business partners?
Archer: He did not. He did not ask him — to my knowledge, I never saw him say, do anything for any particular business.
Q: It is still true that you are not aware that Hunter Biden ever discussed policy with his father, discussed business with his father, influenced American policy for purposes of his business or otherwise caused the Vice President or asked the Vice President to do anything improper, right?
Archer: That’s my understanding.
Archer: [H]e’s saying that, you know, we can’t — I can’t guide my guy, you know, I can’t guide my father in what he’s going to do on this trip, but let’s get credit for it.
Schwerin: I am not aware of any financial transactions or compensation that Vice President Biden received related to business conducted by any of his family members or their associates nor any involvement by him in their businesses. None.
Schwerin: I cannot recall any requests for Vice President Biden to take any official action on behalf of any of Hunter’s clients or his business deals — foreign or domestic. In fact, I am not aware of any role that Vice President Biden, as a public official or a private citizen, had in any of Hunter’s business activities. None.
Walker: I certainly never was thinking at any time that, ah … the V. P. was a part of anything we were doin’.
Walker: To be clear, President Biden — while in office, or as a private citizen — was never involved in any of the business activities we pursued. Any statement of the contrary is simply false.
