Biden says claims Hunter profited off the family name are part of a “desperate campaign to smear me”

Tuesday, Joe Biden was asked by WISN’s Adrienne Pederson “So, Wisconsin’s Republican Sen., Ron Johnson, put out a statement, on Homeland Security letterhead, saying Hunter Biden, together with other Biden family members, profited off the Biden name. Is there any legitimacy to Sen. Johnson’s claims?”

Biden strongly denied the accusation, replying “None whatsoever. This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s henchman…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 the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said, there’s no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself.”
