Top Biden Official Admits To Lying To Congress While Under Oath

A top official in Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration has admitted to lying during testimony to Congress. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm lied to U.S. senators when she claimed not to own individual stocks.

In a June 9 letter to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Granholm came clean. She wrote: “I mistakenly told the Committee that I did not own any individual stocks, whereas I should have said that I did not own any conflicting stocks.

“In order to make my financial holdings consistent with my testimony, on May 18, 2023, I divested my remaining stock holdings which consisted of stock in six companies, even though these assets were deemed non-conflicting.

“As I was not previously aware of the asset, I did not report my spouse’s financial interest on my two prior Public Financial Disclosure Reports, nor was it included in the other paperwork associated with my nomination.

“As a public servant, I take very seriously the commitment to hold myself to the highest ethical standards, and I regret the accidental omission of my spouse’s interest in Ford.

“This is a commitment I made to you, the President, and most importantly the American people.

“My spouse and I have double-checked our financial assets, and there are no other reportable assets that were omitted from my financial disclosure report.”

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), the top Republican on the committee, blasted Granholm:

“Secretary Granholm lied to the committee about her family’s stock holdings.

“This comes after her failure to follow basic ethics and disclosure rules.

“This is a troubling pattern. It is unacceptable.”

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), said:

“Granholm lied to me on April 20—and it took the Administration 6 full weeks to admit it. Brazen.

“It is time to BAN all senior executive branch officials and all members of Congress from owning & trading stock.”
