Biden Defends Hunter Amid Investigation Into His Taxes: ‘I’m Proud of My Son’

President-elect Joe Biden is showing support for his son, Hunter Biden, after the U.S. attorney in Delaware launched an investigation into his taxes.

After an event in Wilmington, Delaware, Friday, a reporter asked the former vice president, “Did Hunter Biden commit a crime? Have you spoken to your son, Mr. President-Elect?”

He replied, “I’m proud of my son.”

Watch the exchange below:

Hunter Biden released a statement Wednesday afternoon to announce the news of the investigation, as IJR previously reported.

“I learned yesterday for the first time that the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware advised my legal counsel, also yesterday, that they are investigating my tax affairs,” Hunter Biden wrote.

He added, “I take this matter very seriously, but I am confident that a professional and objective review of these matters will demonstrate that I handled my affairs legally and appropriately, including with the benefit of professional tax advisors.”

The Biden-Harris transition team released a statement in his defense.

“President-elect Biden is deeply proud of his son, who has fought through difficult challenges, including the vicious personal attacks of recent months, only to emerge stronger,” the statement reads.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter Thursday to question why Hunter Biden was not investigated before the election and falsely claimepp he won the presidency.

“Why didn’t the Fake News Media, the FBI and the DOJ report the Biden matter BEFORE the Election. Oh well, it’s OK, we won the Election anyway – 75,000,000 VOTES!!!” Trump wrote.

The investigation comes just months after The New York Post published a report alleging Hunter Biden introduced his father to an executive for Ukrainian energy company Burisma while he was still vice president.

The Biden campaign later denied the report, as IJR previously reported.

Joe Biden later called the report a “last-ditch effort” by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.


  1. The people Biden is putting in his cabinet are the same ones Obama had. They are the same ones who agree to sending pallets filled with cash to Iran. New terrorists one the way. Rejoin the clean air so we have to pay for other countries like China whose air is the worst. Yes, China needs even more of our money. It will go into the Biden cash laundering anyway. It will come back to the USA undercover. Biden promised to tear up everything Trump has accomplished so I bet that includes the peace deals no other president has been smart enough to do. It will also put high capacity apartments in single home communities. Too bad Trump didn’t explain what he meant by saying he saved the suburbs. Most of the population had no idea what he was talking about.

  2. Well Arthur, your statement proves you have your tongue up trump’s butt so I wouldn’t cast stones in a glass house if I were you. As far as trumps spawn, their time will come for the illegal dealings they’ve had a hand in. It’s already started with Ivanka’s deposition before investigators from the Washington DC, Attorney General’s office AKA misuse of inaugural funds. Eric Trump was also deposed as part of the NY Attorney General’s investigation into whether the Trump Org. improperly inflated the value of it’s assets. Let the fun begin!!

  3. “Here we go again. Every company will be again moved to China and pallets of money delivered to Iran.” Arlene

    I am confused. Arlene.

    WHO is the one stuck on old ideas?

  4. Here we go again. Every company will be again moved to China and pallets of money delivered to Iran. Just make sure Biden’s family keeps getting (stealing) $. We will be paying big teriffs to China and they get it free. We have the cleanest air but, will have to send money to the other countries even though we are ahead. I wonder how fast the peace deal will be cancelled so the family can make more money.
    They are so angry peace was possible when someone has new ideas instead of being stuck in a box of a 100 years ago.

  5. Great quote from old Joe. Apple meet tree. What else can he say. Not an ounce of shame. He was right in there with his hand out too. And this might be the next president…..for a month or two. Harris is salivating.

  6. Oh June, are licking bidens boots too? President Trumps children were put under the microscope and the msm tried to ruin everything they did. Hunter is guilty and his “daddy” got him there.

  7. IJR bootlicking the depends in chief. This guys hasnt even takin office and you caved to him. I guess we are looking at how the msm will treat pedo joe biden vs President Trump. What a disgrace!

  8. No one is perfect leave Biden alone he will help up heal from trump. If his son did wrong it will be found and dealt with properly and has nothing to do with President elect Biden. Get a life people
