Internet users wonder whether Joe Biden had a crease in his shirt or a cable leading to an earpiece

Conservatives say a video quickly going viral on social media, originally uploaded to Facebook by a California man, shows Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden wearing a wire or communication device during Tuesday night’s debate.
The video, originally uploaded to Facebook by California man Jay Ashurst, shows the camera trained on Biden while President Donald Trump is speaking. Biden reached his left hand into the right side of his suit and appeared to adjust his clothing. Seconds later, an anomalous dark line emerges from his jacket, potentially a crease in a starched shirt, or a cable of some type.
As Biden straightens his posture, the dark line appears to grow tight and then disappears into his jacket. After rewatching large portions of the debate, National File could not find another instance where a dark line was seen in the same position.
“He’s wearing a wire,” says a man narrating the video. “There it is, Biden’s wearing a wire. Why do you need a wire, bro? You’ve got a mic.”
