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.”

Oops! NY Dem Accidentally Slips, Voting Bill Inspired by ‘Hugo Chavez’
Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.
The Democrats' election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington "gaffe"—accidentally telling the truth. https://t.co/Pn1rdcgHll

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”
New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”
On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
