“Sir, there is something personal that’s affecting you,” MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle said to President Biden. “Your son — while there [are] no ties to you — could be charged by your Department of Justice. How will that impact your presidency?”
“First of all, my son’s done nothing wrong,” Biden responded.
The president added: “I trust him. I have faith in him and it impacts my presidency by making me feel proud of him.”
On October 14, 2020, the New York Post reported on the contents of a laptop left by Hunter Biden at a repair shop in Delaware. The Daily Caller News Foundation authenticated the laptop’s documents in October 2020.
In March 2022, while reporting on the federal investigation into the president’s son, The Washington Post and The New York Times verified the authenticity of the data.
