WILMINGTON, DE – President-elect Joe Biden is dealing with the first scandal of his presidency, a criminal tax investigation into his son Hunter’s tax returns. Hunter acknowledged he was under investigation by the Department of Justice last week. Feds say the President-elect’s son didn’t pay taxes on money made in some of his foreign business deals.
Joe Biden today spoke about the scandal for the first time today, claiming foul play is in play.
“We have great confidence in our son,” the elder Biden said today. “I am not concerned about any accusations that have been made against him. It’s used to get to me, I think it’s kind of foul play, it is what it is, he’s a grown man…as long as he’s good, we’re good.”
