GOP Rep. Scott Perry Grills Antony Blinken: Was Your Recent Interview With The FBI A Deposition?

|

Pennsylvania GOP Rep. Scott Perry asked Secretary of State Antony Blinken if he has been interviewed by the FBI or if the State Department has "turned over documents to the FBI related to Hunter Biden, Burisma, or the Blue State Strategies Corporation" during a hearing on Afghanistan Monday afternoon.

The Daily Caller's Henry Rodgers reported:




REP. SCOTT PERRY: How long was your recent interview with the FBI and was it a deposition?

SECRETARY OF STATE ANTONY BLINKEN: I'm sorry, I don't know to what you are referring.

PERRY: Are you saying you have not had a recent interview with the FBI since becoming Secretary of State?

BLINKEN: I, uh, I am not sure what you are referring to. And I'm happy to take that up with you off-line.

PERRY: Did the State Department turn over documents to the FBI related to Hunter Biden, Burisma, and/or the Blue State Strategies corporation?

BLINKEN: You will have to --

PERRY: You have no knowledge of this? Are you saying you have not had an interview with the FBI?

BLINKEN: It is not appropriate for me to comment in public on any legal proceedings with the department.

PERRY: I'm not asking you to comment on the legal proceedings. I'm just asking: Have you been interviewed by the FBI since becoming the Secretary of State?

BLINKEN: I will not comment one way or another on any legal proceedings or not that may or may not have happened.

CHAIRMAN: Let me remind the gentleman that the topic of this hearing is Afghanistan. That is what we are here for.

PERRY: I appreciate it, Mr. Chairman, but the secretary generally refuses to answer questions about Afghanistan so I figured we'd talk about something he should be familiar with. Have you sought to alter your testimony from last year's Senate investigation regarding this topic, Mr. Secretary?

CHAIRMAN: The gentlemen's time has expired.
