Watch Biden say it here:
Per The New York Post:
Biden declared on Friday that his son Hunter Biden “has done nothing wrong” as federal prosecutors near a decision on whether to charge the first son with tax and gun crimes.
Biden’s defense of Hunter came in a rare sit-down interview with MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle that aired Friday night at 10 p.m.
“My son has done nothing wrong. I trust him. I have faith in him and it impacts my presidency by making me feel proud of him,” Biden, 80, told Ruhle when asked about how the first son being charged would impact his presidency.
Delaware US Attorney David Weiss, who is handling the Justice Department’s four-year-long investigation into Hunter Biden, is reportedly close to deciding on whether to charge the president’s son.
Weiss is reportedly considering seeking an indictment against Hunter for felony and misdemeanor tax charges and for allegedly lying on a federal gun purchasing form.
BIDEN: “My son has done nothing wrong… I feel proud of him.”
Hunter may soon be charged for federal tax charges.
Hunter may soon be charged for federal gun charges.
