“Senator, do you could have a criminal offense that you simply assume Hunter Biden dedicated?” Todd requested. “It’s not a criminal offense to generate income off of your final title.”
Johnson pointed to a report written by Marco Polo USA, a corporation co-founded by former Trump White Home adviser Garrett Ziegler (well-known for blasting the Jan. 6 committee with profanities and doxxing alleged FBI brokers), that alluded to “potential” crimes dedicated by the youthful Biden.
“Let me cease you there,” Todd insisted. “That is potential. Potential is innuendo.”

Conservatives perceive that. Sadly, liberals and the media don’t. And a part of the explanations are our politics are infected, is we would not have an unbiased media. We don’t. It’s unlucky. I’m all for a free press.”
“Look, you may return in your partisan cable cocoon and discuss media bias all you need,” Todd shot again. “I perceive it’s a part of your id.”
