Breaking Now: Just moments ago, President-Elect Joe Biden stated that he’s “confident” his son, Hunter, who is under criminal investigation for a range of potential crimes, did nothing wrong.
“President-elect Joseph R. Biden on Wednesday said he’s confident his son, Hunter Biden, did nothing wrong amid a federal investigation and increasing calls for a special counsel to probe the younger Biden‘s business dealings,” according to the conservative Washington Times.
“‘Are you confident your son, Hunter, did nothing wrong?’ a reporter asked the elder Biden at a press conference to introduce Pete Buttigieg, a former South Bend mayor and presidential candidate, as his nominee for transportation secretary.
“‘I’m confident,’ Mr. Biden shot back.
The exchange marks only the second time Mr. Biden has addressed his son’s legal issues since they were publicly disclosed last week. At a press conference last week, Mr. Biden tersely responded to questions about Hunter by simply saying, ‘I’m proud of my son.’
“Hunter Biden issued a statement last week revealing federal prosecutors in Delaware are investigating his taxes. He said an objective review of the matter will conclude that his taxes were handled ‘legally and appropriately.'”
