Former U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman Represents James Biden

Paul J. Fishman, former U.S. Attorney for New Jersey, appeared on Capitol Hill this afternoon with his client, James Biden, brother of President Joe Biden.

From the Associated Press:

 James Biden told congressional investigators that his brother, President Joe Biden, “never had any involvement” in the family’s business dealings as James Biden appeared for a private interview Wednesday on Capitol Hill as part of House Republicans’ impeachment inquiry.

“I have had a 50-year career in a variety of business ventures. Joe Biden has never had any involvement or any direct or indirect financial interest in those activities,” the younger Biden said in an opening statement obtained by The Associated Press. “None.”

The interview with James Biden is the latest in a series that GOP lawmakers have conducted recently as they seek to rebuild momentum for an impeachment process surrounding the Biden family’s overseas finances that has stalled in recent months.

Criticism over the lack of evidence directly related to the president has grown even among those in the Republican Party who have thrown cold water on allegations that Biden was directly involved in his family members’ supposed efforts to leverage the last name into corporate paydays domestically and abroad. The GOP investigation was undercut again last week when an FBI informant who claimed there was a multimillion-dollar bribery scheme involving the president, his son Hunter and a Ukrainian energy company was charged with fabricating the story.

Appointed by then-President Barack Obama, Fishman served as U.S. Attorney from 2009 to 2017.

He succeeded Chris Christie as U.S. Attorney.
