President Joe Biden was apparently worried his communications with son Hunter Biden were being hacked in September of 2018, screenshots released by the Daily Mail suggest.
“Be careful what you text. Likely I’m being hacked,” Joe Biden wrote to his son, as he considered his 2020 campaign for president.
Perhaps the future president had reason to worry, because it’s no mystery Joe Biden in 1986 led the effort on the Senate Judiciary Committee to enact the “Anti-Drug Abuse Act,” establishing first time mandatory minimum sentences for drugs like cocaine.
Any potential misstep regarding his son’s struggle with addiction could complicate Joe Biden’s political record.
Even so, screenshots indicate Joe Biden showed leniency towards Hunter and even offered money to pay for Hunter’s dentist bill. “Do you want me to do anything about the Maisy dentist bill?” Joe Biden asked.
