Biden: ‘I Have Not Taken a Penny from Any Foreign Source’
Former vice president says Hunter's emails are 'Russian disinformation'
Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden claimed he had “not taken a penny from any foreign source” in response to explosive allegations that he and his family enjoyed lucrative foreign dealings while he served as vice president during the Obama administration.
Biden was asked during the final presidential debate on Thursday night about the recent revelations that his son, Hunter Biden, pursued deals in China and Ukraine.
But the former vice president flat out denied the allegations, deflecting them as a Russian disinformation campaign.
Biden cited an open letter alleging the emails were just “Russian disinformation," even if they "are genuine," which was signed by 50 former intelligence officials, including former CIA Director John Brennan, all of who pushed the now-debunked Russia hoax.
“I have not taken a penny from any foreign source, ever, in my life,” Biden said.
The FBI recently confirmed the emails leaked from the laptop hard drive are, in fact, "authentic" and not part of a "Russian disinformation campaign," as claimed by former intelligence officials.
Federal officials have now reportedly seized the laptops belonging to Hunter.
As Neon Nettle reported in September, Hunter Biden offered to give Chinese elites direct access to Washington D.C. in return for millions of dollars in investment for his company.

The younger Biden reportedly touted his family’s political clout, while his father was vice president, to solicit a $5 million investment from China.
The offer was discussed in an email sent to Tony Bobulinski, the CEO of SinoHawk Holdings, a one-time business partner of Hunter Biden.
Bobulinski claims he personally witnessed the former vice president discussing business interests with his son, Hunter, and younger brother, James.
As Neon Nettle reported last week, one of the emails threads leaked from Hunter Biden's hard drive, including a discussion about dividing up the payout from a deal with a Chinese firm, was corroborated by one of the individuals involved in the conversation.
The email refers to a payout for "the big guy," who a source has reportedly confirmed is former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic presidential nominee.
Fox News reportedly spoke to one of the people copied on the email, who confirmed its authenticity.
Sources told Fox News that "the big guy" is a reference to the former vice president.
