‘No, she wasn’t,’ Dems say Biden is ‘too busy’ with family

The House Intelligence Committee will hold a press conference Thursday to mark the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, according to a report from The Hill.

Democrats are expecting Vice President Joe Biden to take questions on the events and to announce the first-ever panel on the attacks.

The panel will be moderated by ABC News’ Jake Tapper and will be live-streamed at 9 p.m.


The news comes after several members of the House Intelligence panel told reporters that Biden is “too busy” to take on the issue.

The lawmakers said that the vice president’s busy schedule has prevented him from addressing the issue in depth and that they hope to address the issue again soon.

“The panel will highlight the need for more transparency and accountability in the aftermath of 9/11, the need to hold accountable those who participated in the attacks and the need, particularly in light of the Trump administration’s continued efforts to undermine our nation,” Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking member of the committee, said in a statement.

The event will also be attended by former Vice President Dick Cheney and his wife, Lynne Cheney, who are both expected to address reporters.

Vice President Biden’s schedule has been limited in recent months, and he has not been at the forefront of pressing for accountability.

Biden is expected to attend a news conference at the White House on Monday to discuss the events.
