White House Faces Criticism for Excluding Hunter Biden from Marine One Roster Amid Absence of Visitor Logs

House Republicans are targeting the White House for excluding President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, from the Marine One passenger list, continuing a tradition that extends to other records, including visitor logs.

“The White House may not have helped that the president is keeping far away from Hunter’s local woes,” Fox News White House correspondent Jacqui Heinrich reported Tuesday. “We were all just watching the First Family’s return from Delaware on Marine One, and my colleague Peter Doocy noticed someone hop off the chopper who was not on the passenger list the White House gave us: Hunter Biden.”

“So, Hunter is apparently here at the White House after defying a Congressional subpoena while being indicted and facing a maximum of 17 years behind bars on financial crimes plus another 25 on the gun charges that he is facing,” Heinrich said.

The exclusion of Hunter Biden led the House Republican Conference’s social media account to inquire about additional information the White House might be withholding in its records concerning the president’s son.

“Fox News reports that Hunter Biden is currently at the White House after being spotted exiting Marine One,” the House GOP account wrote on X. “He was not on the White House’s passenger manifest. What other manifests and visitor logs has Hunter Biden been left off of?”

In a Thursday press briefing, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked whether there are plans for the White House to disclose Hunter Biden’s presence on future Marine One flights.

“That’s something that we’ve never done,” Jean-Pierre responded. “This is the family. The family gets to travel with the president, and that’s been the case with every other president, and so it’s not something that we have done or we would be doing moving forward.”

Despite the Biden White House’s repeated assertion of being the “most transparent administration in American history,” a prior examination by Fox News Digital revealed that the visitor logs, spanning from the beginning of the Biden administration through February 2023, consistently omitted any mention of Hunter Biden’s visits or prolonged stays.

This omission persists, as evidenced by the ongoing exclusion of Hunter’s name from the visitor logs. The review, incorporating multiple articles, meticulously reconstructed Hunter Biden’s presence at the White House, documenting over a dozen visits through February 2023. In response, a White House spokesperson previously cited a policy established at the commencement of the administration.

“The White House will not release access records related to purely personal guests of the First and Second Families (i.e., visits that do not involve any official or political business),” the policy states, which appears to be less transparent than the Obama administration.
