Former Vice President Joe Biden finally directly addressed questions concerning the current federal investigation his son, Hunter Biden, is currently undergoing for “tax affairs,” saying he’s confident he’s done nothing wrong.
Hunter Biden himself confirmed the investigation in a statement that was released last week by the transition organization for Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris. In the statement, Hunter admits that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware is “investigating my tax affairs.”
He went on to say that he is taking “this matter very seriously but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”
Wednesday he was questioned again by Fox News’ Peter Doocy, who asked if he is confident his son did nothing wrong, to which Biden responded “I’m confident.”
Hunter Biden has come under intense scrutiny in the past year over his business dealings. Specifically, the younger Biden was on the board of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings while his father, as the vice president, was overseeing American policy on Ukraine.
Joe Biden has denied any role in his son’s businesses. But emails sent to and from Hunter Biden have cast doubt on that, including a 2017 email obtained by Fox News which shows Hunter requesting keys for Joe and Jill Biden, along with his uncle, Jim Biden, for space he planned to share with an “emissary” for a chairman of a now-bankrupt Chinese energy company.
Yeah, well, he can have all the confidence he wants. The evidence is not looking good for his boy and certainly not for him either.
How embarrassing would it be for a man who supposedly just won a presidential election — eye roll — to be carted off to prison for abuse of power and other assorted shady business for actively using his political clout to help his son and himself get rich?
This dude is too corrupt to be commander-in-chief.
