Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. refused to criticize President Joe Biden's family over bribery allegations.
Kennedy claimed not to have a comment on the topic when asked about the situation by Fox News.

“What I’ve tried to do in this campaign is to focus on issues and focus on the values and not focus on ad hominem attacks on people,” Kennedy claimed.
“I think on every side it’s something that people should be concerned about, but it’s not something that I’m making a spear tip to my campaign,” he added.
GRASSLEY: The DOJ briefed federal prosecutors and FBI investigators on the contents of a scheme alleging that then-Vice President Joe Biden took a criminal bribe from a foreign national but left IRS investigators out of the loop on the allegationshttps://t.co/Lc8dzC2921

The response comes just days after claims that the Justice Department briefed FBI investigators on the case but left IRS investigators out of the meeting.
"Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) says the Department of Justice (DOJ) briefed federal prosecutors and FBI investigators on the contents of a scheme alleging that then-Vice President Joe Biden took a criminal bribe from a foreign national but left IRS investigators out of the loop on the allegations," the Epoch Times reported.
"In an Oct. 23, 2020, meeting, Grassley alleged in a July 10 letter to U.S. Attorney David Weiss, FBI investigators and Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) Leslie Wolf were made aware of criminal bribery allegations levied against Mr. Biden in an FD-1023 form, a form used by the FBI to record allegations of potential criminal activity," it added.
The ongoing concerns continue as House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-KY) pushes forward with the investigation that he claims could involve tens of millions of dollars.
Hunter Biden reportedly received at least $5 million in payments connected to international business deals, according to Comer's investigation.
It may be surprising that Kennedy chooses not to address the allegations involving the Biden family but it's no surprise that the Democratic challenger is causing concern with his rising popularity against Biden's plans for a second term.
