Without any proof, former Democratic Vice President Joe Biden, attributed the reports of corruption affecting both his son Hunter and himself to an alleged ‘Russian disinformation’ campaign. Hunter himself has confirmed that he is under federal investigation and the evidence is more than substantial, however Joe Biden continues to avoid testifying about the scandal and now blames Russia.
The comment in question was made on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 22, during a press conference. After repeatedly dodging reporters’ questions on the matter, he finally ended up stating that behind the reports that harm the Biden family, there is an alleged ‘disinformation campaign’ promoted by Russian intelligence. Nothing could be further from the truth, even his own son confirmed otherwise.
Fox News reporter Peter Doocy began asking as Biden left the podium, “Do you still think the corruption stories about your son Hunter were Russian disinformation and a smear campaign like you said before,” to which Biden responded, “Yes. Yes. Yes. God loves you, man.
Joe Biden still insists the investigation into Hunter Biden is Russian disinformation.

In mid-October, news came out about emails found on a laptop belonging to Hunter Biden, with valuable evidence of his corrupt relationships with foreign companies. Hunter never denied owning the computer.
The FBI, which holds the hard drives and is conducting an investigation, denied that the leaked emails were part of a “Russian disinformation campaign,” as Joe Biden claimed.
The New York Post published the news in a series of reports released over the course of several days prior to the November presidential election.
Social networking companies, in an obvious act of complicity, were quick to block the dissemination of the news. On top of this, many in the media ignored the information about it or published false reports suggesting that it was a Russian disinformation campaign.
Senior officials from various government agencies rejected the false assumptions that the stories were part of a Russian disinformation campaign, The Daily Wire reported at the time.
Earlier this month, Hunter Biden himself revealed that he was under federal criminal investigation for his financial dealings abroad, following documents leaked on the infamous laptop.
In case the justice system does not act properly regarding the evident electoral fraud and the candidate Joe Biden is proclaimed as president of the United States, there are fears that he will intercede in the justice system to interfere in the investigations that accuse his son of corruption and also affect him in his period as vice president.
