Former VP Joe Biden eviscerates Donald Trump over reports he tried to bribe the Ukrainian president for dirt on Hunter Biden: “There is truly no bottom to President Trump’s willingness to abuse his power.”
Biden’s campaign issued a scathing statement as the scandal deepens deepens following the Justice Department and White House blocking a whistleblower complaint from going to Congress.
“If these reports are true, then there is truly no bottom to President Trump’s willingness to abuse his power and abase our country. This behavior is particularly abhorrent because it exploits the foreign policy of our country and undermines our national security for political purposes.”
“It means that he used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation—a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia—pushing Ukraine to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor.”
“Such clear-cut corruption damages and diminishes our institutions of government by making them tools of a personal political vendetta.”
“At minimum, Donald Trump should immediately release the transcript of the call in question, so that the American people can judge for themselves, and direct the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to stop stonewalling and release the whistleblower notification to the Congress.”
