On Saturday, a reporter in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, asked former Vice President and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden about his son Hunter Biden’s corrupt overseas business deals.
“Questions and controversy continue today about Hunter Biden, your son,” the reporter said before Biden cut him off.
“There is no controversy about my son,” Biden said. “That’s a hell of a lie. That’s a flat lie because the president has nothing to run on… it’s classic Trump.”
“There is no controversy,” he angrily added. “That’s all a lie.”
“It’s a flat lie because the president has nothing else to run on. If you noticed, while the American people are talking about what’s happening to their families; he has no plan and at the debate, he has no plan,” Biden said.
“Everything from Wall Street Journal, other major news outlet said what he is saying is simply not true about my son, but it’s classic Trump,” continued Biden.
The former vice president then went off on a wild tangent where he started talking about the coronavirus.
The situation surrounding Hunter Biden is not a “lie” like the former Vice President claims considering all the accusations agains his son are based off of information found on his own laptop.
Biden’s comments came shortly after ex-Hunter Biden business associate Tony Bobulinski came forward with bombshell information against the Biden family.
The Journal reported:
An ex-business partner of Hunter Biden, in a news conference organized by the Trump campaign, alleged that former Vice President Joe Biden was part of discussions around his son’s efforts to form an investment venture with a Chinese oil company. …
In a statement to reporters Thursday, Anthony Bobulinski said that in 2017 Hunter Biden consulted his father about a planned venture with Chinese oil company CEFC China Energy Co. to invest in the U.S. and elsewhere. Mr. Bobulinski was also a partner.
The venture—set up in 2017 after Mr. Biden left the vice presidency and before his presidential campaign—never received proposed funds from the Chinese company or completed any deals, according to people familiar with the matter. Corporate records reviewed by The Wall Street Journal show no role for Joe Biden.
