Joe Biden says he’s not worried about accusations against Hunter Biden, calls them ‘foul play’

President-elect Joe Biden said on Thursday that he was not worried about the allegations against his son Hunter Biden and called them “foul play.”

Biden made the comments on an interview with Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that aired Thursday.

“We have great confidence in our son,” said Biden when asked about his son.

“I’m not concerned about any accusations that have been made against him, it’s used to get me. I think it’s kind of foul play but — look, it is what it is,” he added.

“He’s a grown man,” concluded Biden. “He’s the smartest man I know, I mean, in pure intellectual capacity, and uh, as long as he’s good, we’re good.”

Hunter Biden revealed in statement from the Biden Harris transition team that his “tax affairs” were under federal investigation. Subsequent reports claimed that he had been under investigation for alleged money laundering since 2018, but the probe was put on hold during the 2020 presidential campaign.

The president-elect has denied any wrongdoing related to his son’s business affairs.

Joe Biden might have been responding to a tweet by the president earlier Thursday where he denied having any role in the “potential prosecution” of Hunter Biden.

“I have NOTHING to do with the potential prosecution of Hunter Biden, or the Biden family. It is just more Fake News. Actually, I find it very sad to watch!” tweeted the president.

Previous to this denial, the president had lashed out at Attorney General William Barr over reports that he knew about the investigation into Hunter Biden but did not reveal it to the public or to the president. Barr has since told the president that he would be retiring from the position at the end of the year.

Hunter Biden says that his ‘tax affairs’ are under federal investigation

Hunter Biden, the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, said that he was under investigation by the U.S. Attorney General’s office in Delaware, Maryland.

The Biden-Harris transition team released a statement from Hunter Biden on Wednesday about the revelation.

“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs. I take 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,” read the statement.

Republicans and other critics have accused the Biden family of illegally abusing the power of the office of vice president in order to enrich themselves.

The transition team also released their statement about the development.

“President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger,” the statement read.

Department of Justice sources reportedly said that Hunter Biden’s taxes had been under investigation since 2018, according to John Roberts of Fox News.

CNN’s Evan Perez reported that the statement from the Biden transition team came after they asked for a comment about the investigation for their story.

The report said that the investigation was probing allegations of money laundering related to foreign countries, including China. The report from CNN also said that the investigation did not implicate Joe Biden.

Hunter Biden’s business relations became a central issue in the 2020 election when allies of the president accused him of using his father’s position in order to benefit a Ukrainian energy company that he represented.

The speculation reached a fever pitch when it was revealed that the president’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani had obtained a laptop owned by Hunter Biden but abandoned at a computer repair shop. Giuliani claimed the laptop contained information damaging to Hunter Biden and implicating Joe Biden, but he handed it over law enforcement officials in Delaware.
