“Please have keys made available for new office mates,” Hunter Biden wrote, and listed several individuals:
- Joe Biden
- Jill Biden
- Jim Biden, Joe Biden’s brother

“There is no controversy,” he snapped. “That’s all a lie.”
“It’s a flat lie because the president has nothing else to run on. If you noticed, while the American people are talking about what’s happening to their families, he has no plan, and at the debate, he has no plan,” Biden said.
“Everything from Wall Street Journal, other major news outlets said what he is saying is simply not true about my son, but it’s classic Trump,” he claimed.
