Joe Biden's furious answer when he is FINALLY asked about his son Hunter's Ukraine emails


Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has finally been asked about reports about his son Hunter’s foreign dealings, and responded by saying he had ‘no response’ and furiously slamming the reporter who quizzed him.

CBS News reporter Bo Erickson put the question to Biden as the candidate boarded his private jet after a campaign stop in Michigan Friday night, two days after the New York Post broke the bombshell story.

‘Mr. Biden, what is your response to the New York Post story about your son, sir?’ Erickson asked.

‘I know you’d ask it,’ Biden replied heatedly, wearing two masks. ‘I have no response, it’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.’

On Thursday night, ABC News host George Stephanopoulos, a former Democratic advisor, sparked controversy when he declined to ask about Hunter’s emails during a 90-minute town hall.

Biden’s campaign previously responded to the Post report with a statement saying ‘Joe Biden carried out official US policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing.’

Hunter’s emails were provided by Rudy Giuliani to the New York Post after a computer repair store owner said he’d found them on a hard drive.

The store owner said a man who he was unable to identify brought three computers into his store for repair last fall and never picked them up. He said he then made a copy of the emails and images on the hard drives, and provided them to the FBI and to Giuliani, Trump’s lawyer. 

The emails suggest that Biden, who has always denied knowledge or involvement in his son’s business dealings, was more deeply involved than he has previously admitted.

The trove of emails have set of a series of political shockwaves including: 

  • The laptop was revealed to include a picture of Hunter with what appears to be a crack pipe, and an 11-minute sex and drug video which is still to be seen; 
  • Donald Trump seized on the release – orchestrated by his personal attorney Rudy Giuliani – to call his rival ‘a corrupt politician’; 
  • Senate Republicans said they will investigate the first tranche of emails, from Hunter’s Ukrainian business partners, which appear to show a Burisma energy executive being introduced to Joe Biden when he was vice president; 
  • A report identified Joe Biden is the person referred to in emails as the ‘the big guy’ who would receive 10 percent equity in a deal with a Chinese energy firm;
  • Democrats accusing Giuliani of peddling ‘misinformation’ and ‘parading around with a Russian agent’.

Twitter added to the controversy when it blocked links to Post articles about the revelations, a decision the social media platform later backtracked.   

On Friday, President Donald Trump claimed Biden had a ‘very bad showing’ at his town hall with ABC’s Stephanopoulos and slammed the network for not asking about Hunter.

‘Sleepy Joe Biden had a very bad showing last night, despite the fact that @GStephanopoulos didn’t ask him any questions on his being a ‘corrupt politician’. Big Tech & Lamestream Media are working hard to hide this corruption!!!,’ Trump wrote.

Stephanopoulos and ABC News have not responded to the attack.

The FBI is reportedly investigating whether the Hunter emails are part of a foreign influence operation, even though Giuliani says foreign sources didn’t provide the Hunter Biden emails. 

He says a laptop containing the emails and intimate photos was simply abandoned in a Delaware repair shop and the shop owner reached out to Giuliani’s lawyer.

The emails surfaced as U.S. officials have been warning that Russia, which backed Trump´s 2016 campaign through hacking of Democratic emails and a covert social media campaign, is interfering again this year.  

The Washington Post reported on Thursday that intelligence agencies had warned the White House last year that Giuliani was the target of a Russian influence operation. 

That assessment was based on information including intercepted communications showing Giuliani had been in contact with people tied to Russian intelligence, four intelligence sources told the newspaper.

The report said national security adviser Robert O´Brien had warned Trump that information Giuliani brought back from Ukraine should be considered contaminated by Russia, but that Trump brushed off the warning. 

Biden leads Trump in most major polls both nationally and in critical battleground states. In the RealClearPolitics polling average, Biden leads Trump by 9 points.
