The website called «Just the Facts, Folks» highlights news articles that fact check claims about Biden and Ukraine and highlight his campaign message. Biden has not yet offered public comment during Wednesday’s public hearing, part of an impeachment inquiry stemming from President Trump’s July phone conversation with the president of Ukraine, Voldymyr Zelenskiy, who he may have urged to launch an investigation into Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

The site also includes television ads that have been released by the campaign.

“There’s a lot of misinformation and lies out there, so welcome to the one stop shop for the facts about Joe Biden. Stay informed about the truth Trump and his special interests are trying to distract from,” the website header’s proclaims.

Biden’s deputy campaign manager Pete Kavanaugh confirmed the campaign was behind the launch in tweet Wednesday afternoon, and said the site would be continually updated.

The former vice president’s campaign also blasted out a fundraising e-mail Wednesday evening in reaction to Wednesday’s hearings lambasting Republicans and President Trump.

«I don’t take this lightly… But I also don’t take attacks on my family lightly. And I don’t take attacks on our democracy and a fair elections system lightly. So it is my belief, that with his words and with his actions, President Trump has indicted himself,» the e-mail, with Biden’s signature at the bottom, read.

«He has publicly — on camera — violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and committed an impeachable act. And today’s impeachment hearings only add to the evidence that Trump’s only real priority in Ukraine was to smear me — not fight corruption. These hearings are about what kind of commander in chief we should have,» the e-mail continued..

Biden and his son were the subject of several lines of questioning throughout the testimony, but the former vice president has not given any reaction to the testimony, ignoring shouted questions on the topic from reporters Wednesday morning in DC.

Democrats are hoping to make their case to millions of Americans watching on television that Trump’s conduct has been so serious he deserves to be removed from office.
