Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) interrupted a reporter who asked a question Thursday about mounting evidence of corruption on the part of Democratic candidate for president Joe Biden, refusing to address the inquiry.

As the Washington Examiner's Kerry Picket was asking Pelosi to address "serious allegations of corruption involving Joe Biden," at a press conference, Pelosi shut down the line of questioning. First, she pointed to another reporter and tried to get that person to ask a question, but as Picket kept speaking, Pelosi raised her voice and stuck up her hand.

"Excuse me," she blurted out. "I'm not answering your questions, OK? We're talking about the coronavirus. I don't have all day for questions. That's what we're taking now. Anybody have a question on the coronavirus negotiation?"

Another Washington Examiner journalist, Susan Ferrechio, said Picket was the only reporter to ask about the developing scandal that seems to show Biden's involvement in international business deals struck by his son, Hunter Biden, both during and after the elder Biden's vice presidency.
