‘Ron should be ashamed of himself’: Joe Biden slams Sen. Johnson
In an interview with WISN 12 News Tuesday, Democratic nominee for president and former Vice President Joe Biden denied claims of corruption in his family and said Senator Ron Johnson “should be ashamed of himself” for pushing U.S. government agencies to investigate the allegations.
Things came to a head last week when The New York Post published alleged emails reportedly from Joe Biden’s son Hunter’s laptop. The reported correspondences revealed how Hunter Biden allegedly leveraged his father’s position in the Obama administration to profit overseas, specifically in China and Ukraine.
“This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s henchman,” Biden said during Tuesday’s interview. “It’s the last ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family.”
He added, “Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party, said there’s no basis to this and you know and all and the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said There’s no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself.”
Senator Johnson has charged the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs with investigating the allegations against the Biden family. Johnson has also pressured the FBI to also conduct a full investigation into the Biden family.
“I said that our report raised far more questions than it answered,” Johnson told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo Sunday. “This requires detailed investigations on the part of the Justice Department, on the part of the FBI, on the part of the media, and that’s not occurring. So, why is this being covered up? Why is this not being talked about? This is a major news story.”

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
