( – Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., a longshot Democratic presidential candidate, said in a recent interview that the Republican House impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden’s potential role in his son Hunter Biden’s business activities were causing people to view the President as “unelectable.”

On December 10, while speaking with Semafor, Phillips pointed out that he would be opposing the GOP impeachment inquiry. However, he suggested that it was possible that the outcome of the impeachment inquiry could have a negative effect on both President Biden and his son.

He said he had not seen any evidence to support the claims that Joe Biden was involved in the business dealings, but that considering it was clear that both the President’s son and brother were at least “unethical” and potentially doing illegal activities, then the United States would pay attention. He added that there were people who believed that these allegations made Biden “unelectable.” He also said that they connect him with the indiscretions of the Trump family.

Phillips, who has previously blasted Biden, 81, for “not passing the torch” and allowing for a younger generation of leaders from the party to emerge, has also been pushing for serious primary challengers to come up against the President, according to Fox News.

The outlets stated that Biden’s approval rates continue to be shaky among voters, with many Americans, including Democrats, worrying about his mental and physical state.

On Wednesday, Biden claimed that all of the allegations against his son and brother were a “bunch of lies.”
