Biden: "My son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong"

Former Vice President Joe Biden backed son saying at Tuesday's debate that they did not do anything wrong in Ukraine during his vice presidency.

"My son did nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. I carried out the policy of the United States in rooting out corruption in Ukraine. That's what we should be focusing on.
