"Wisconsin's Republican Senator Ron Johnson put out a statement — on Homeland Security letterhead — saying Hunter Biden, together with other Biden family members, profited off the Biden name," reporter Adrienne Pedersen said.
She then asked what "legitimacy" there was to the claims, to which biden replied "none whatsoever."
"This is the same garbage Rudy Giuliani, Trump's henchman, it's a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family," he fumed.
Biden also noted that Senator Mitt Romney had criticized the Republican party's actions.
"Even the man who served with him on that committee, the former nominee for the Republican Party, said there's no basis to this," the Democrat said.
"And the vast majority of the intelligence people have come out and said there's no basis at all. Ron should be ashamed of himself!"
Biden's laptop has been the subject of a media storm over recent days, after the New York Post published a "smoking-gun" email that it alleged reveals how Hunter Biden introduced his father to a Ukrainian businessman, Vadym Pozharskyi, when Joe Biden was Vice President.
Earlier on Wednesday, it was announced that Donald Trump will "confront Joe Biden on corruption claims" in the final debate even if the "totally biased" moderator doesn't bring it up.
The president will go head-to-head with the Democrat on Thursday evening.
Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told reporters at the White House on Wednesday: "Even if the moderator doesn't ask him, there'll be questions asked.
"This is not going to go away," he said of the allegations.
Thursday's debate will see the pair battle it out on topics such as Covid, American families, national security, leadership, climate change and race.
There has been no mention of Biden being questioned about recent allegations that have unearthed about his son.
