First lady Jill Biden expressed dismay with the treatment of Hunter Biden during the GOP-led House’s corruption-focused impeachment probe into President Joe Biden.

In an interview that aired on Thursday, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski asked Jill Biden to comment on how congressional investigators have treated Hunter Biden, including holding him in contempt of Congress and displaying lewd images of the first son.

“I think what they are doing to Hunter is cruel, and I’m really proud of how Hunter has rebuilt his life after addiction,” Jill Biden said. “I love my son and it’s hurt, it’s hurt my grandchildren, and that’s what I’m so concerned about — that it’s affecting their lives as well.”

As part of a corruption-focused impeachment probe into President Biden, congressional investigators are looking into the business dealings of the Biden family and how the Department of Justice has handled its criminal investigation into Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden made a surprise appearance Wednesday on Capitol Hill, popping up at a meeting where lawmakers were considering a resolution to hold him in contempt of Congress for defying a subpoena for a deposition — similar to his antics last month, showing up at the U.S. Capitol for a press event instead of his scheduled interview.


While the younger Biden and his lawyers indicated he came to Congress on Wednesday to testify, GOP lawmakers decried what they viewed as another stunt. The House Judiciary and Oversight Committees later voted along party lines to formally recommend Hunter Biden be held in contempt of Congress. A floor vote could soon follow.

Jill Biden also discussed the 2024 election in which her husband is seeking a second term. She dismissed concerns about President Biden’s age, 81, and his fitness to serve amid a slew of instances in which he has lost his train of thought while speaking or physically tripped.

“His age is an asset … He’s wise, he has wisdom, he has experience. He knows every leader on the world stage, he’s lived history, he knows history, he’s thoughtful in his decisions. He is the right man or the right person for the job at this moment in history.”
