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.”

Historic Recall: San Francisco recalls soft on crime District Attorney
San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”
BREAKING: San Francisco removes Chesa Boudin in historic recall.
— San Francisco Chronicle (@sfchronicle) June 8, 2022
“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.
The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”
Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
