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.”
Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment
Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.
In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.
“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”
The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”
Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
