Tuesday, Peter Doocy asked Biden as he was completing a press event “Mr. President-Elect, on Russian disinformation…Mr. President-Elect, do you still think that the stories from the fall about your son Hunter were Russian disinformation and a smear campaign like you said?”
“Yes. Yes. Yes,” Biden responded with a chuckle.
“God love you man. You’re a one-horse pony, I’ll tell you,” he continued “Thank you. Thank you. I promise you my Justice Department will be totally on its own making its judgements about how they should proceed.”
Appearing on Fox and Friends over the weekend, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul said “Hunter Biden deserves the same justice that Paul Manafort got. Nothing less, nothing more.”
Regarding Joe Biden claiming he’s “confident” his son Hunter did nothing wrong, Paul said “If he’s confident he should leave in place the U.S. attorney who is investigating Hunter Biden. There is a U.S. attorney in Delaware doing this.”
Paul explained “traditionally, when a new president comes in they fire all the U.S. attorneys. If he wants to show that this is going to be an upright, upstanding Biden administration and that they’re going to actually let the cards lie where the cards lie on Hunter Biden, he needs to leave that U.S. attorney in place. And that’s something, very carefully, to watch. If the U.S. attorney is fired in the first weeks of the administration, and if the investigation goes to a Biden appointee, you can tell the fix is in and there’s not going to be justice.”
He added “But, Hunter Biden deserves the same justice that Paul Manafort got. Nothing less, nothing more.”
