Fox News media analyst and ‘Media Buzz’ host Howard Kurtz joins ‘Bill Hemmer Reports’ with reaction
During an interview with Stephen Colbert that is scheduled to air on Thursday night, the president-elect sat alongside Dr. Jill Biden and expressed “confidence” in his son.
“I think it’s kind of foul play, but look, it is what it is and he’s a grown man, he is the smartest man I know – I mean from a pure intellectual capacity – and as long as he’s good, we’re good,” Joe Biden said.
When Colbert asked how he would handle attack from Republicans, Biden said he would be willing to work with critics because it’s what’s best for the country.
The Delaware U.S. Attorney is investigating Hunter Biden’s taxes – a probe that has been ongoing since 2018 but was only recently publicly disclosed.
Hunter Biden has a complex network of international business dealings.
His involvement with Ukranian energy company Burisma in 2014 has come under intense scrutiny, and was a repeated target of President Trump during his campaign for the 2020 presidency.
The younger Biden was paid $50,000 per month to serve on the board of Burisma, sparking concerns about the perceptions of a conflict of interest given the fact that his father was deeply involved in U.S. policy toward Ukraine.
Hunter Biden also has connections to Chinese and Russian nationals that have raised eyebrows.
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., told Fox News on Thursday that he believed Joe Biden would not interfere in the Hunter Biden investigation when he assumes the White House in January, because he “believes in the rule of law.”
