Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden was questioned by CBS reporter Bo Erickson while leaving Michigan on Friday night in regards to the bombshell story released by the New York Post last week.
On October 14, the New York Post alleged a direct-link between then vice-president Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s dealings with an Ukrainian energy firm. This was approximately a year before government officials in Ukraine were allegedly pressured to fire a prosecutor investigating the company.
When questioned about the story, Biden responded, “I know you’d ask it. I have no response. It’s another smear campaign, right up your alley, those are the questions you always ask.”
Hunter Biden’s work for Burisma while his father was serving as vice-president came under scrutiny among Obama administration officials who viewed it as a conflict of interest.
The Biden campaign has continuously denied any official meetings taking place, but has not commented on any unofficial meetings.
Many social media users were quick to defend Bo Erickson questioning Biden in regards to The New York Post’s story.
Late last week, a social media firestorm broke out when Twitter began censoring tweets linking to the New York Post article, and banning users for posting some of the controversial photos that were amongst the Hunter Biden leaks.
