Revealed: Congress Didn't Get the Truth from Biden's Energy Secretary

One of President Joe Biden's Cabinet members is admitting that she didn't disclose the full truth during Senate testimony in April.

In a Friday letter to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee obtained by Fox News, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said she incorrectly described her assets when she told the committee under oath that she did not own any individual stocks.

Granholm admitted that she in fact retained stocks in six corporations after her confirmation.

"As you know, as part of the confirmation process before this Committee, in 2021 I divested from assets that could be in conflict with my official duties," Granholm wrote.

"I did, however, retain assets that were determined by Government ethics officials to not conflict with my official duties."

"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."

Granholm went on to say that she had since sold the stocks in question.

"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," she said.

"In addition," Fox reported, "Granholm said she discovered on May 13 that her husband Daniel Mulhern owned $2,457.89 worth of shares in Ford Motor Company. Those shares were then sold on May 15, a Monday, when the stock market opened."

As E&E News noted, Ford "falls squarely in [Granholm's] jurisdiction" as she promotes electric vehicles as part of the Biden administration's "green" agenda.

It's unknown which companies Granholm owned stock in before selling the assets. She pledged to disclose those companies this month in her annual public financial disclosure report, according to Fox.
