American Mirror: Former vice president Joe Biden doesn’t have time to be bothered with Democrats’ impeachment malarkey.
A reporter asked Biden about his willingness to “appear voluntarily” in the proceedings during a stop on the campaign trail Wednesday, and the elderly statesman quickly shut down the idea.
“No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball,” Biden said. “The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes, and I’m not going to let him divert from that. Not going to let anybody to divert from that.”
He then shifted to something else.
“Like you’ve heard me say a lot of times, if he’s worried about corruption, I released 21 years of my tax returns. Let him release some of his,” Biden zinged.
“You said yesterday, if you could wave a magic wand, you would beat him at the ballot box,” another reporter chimed in. “Why not help the Democrats build the case on Capitol Hill with the country for impeaching the president, especially since you’re so involved in it?”
The question references Biden’s comments caught on video about threatening to withhold $1 billion in loan guarantees from Ukraine during his time as Obama’s VP and point person with the country. The threat, Biden said, forced Ukrainian government officials to fire a prosecutor who was investigating corruption at the national gas company Burisma Holdings, which paid Biden’s son Hunter millions to serve as a board member. watch
