“He’s indicted himself by his own statements,” Biden told the SEIU forum in Los Angeles on Friday.

“This is not about me. It’s not about my son,” he continued. “There’s not a shred of evidence there’s been anything done that has been wrong.”

“He is unhinged. I worry about what he’s going to do, not about me and my family. I’m worried about what he’ll do in the next year of his presidency,” he said. 

Biden’s comments came after Trump publicly encouraged Ukraine and China to investigate Biden and his son Hunter. 

Trump alleged that Biden thwarted an investigation into his son’s work at a Ukrainian energy company.

The president has since stepped up his attacks against Biden, zeroing in on the former vice president’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to dismiss a senior prosecutor who at one point had investigated an energy company where Biden’s son had served as a board member.

There is no evidence that Biden advocated for the prosecutor’s removal as a means of protecting his son.
