Fox News reporter Peter Doocy found Joe Biden on the campaign trail and asked him a question about his son Hunter and his overseas business dealings with Ukraine. Biden got very defensive and tried to turn the heat onto President Trump. Trump tweeted out a video of the exchange earlier, with the caption “This is the real corruption that the Fake News Media refuses to even acknowledge!”
In the video, reporter Peter Doocy asks Biden “Mr. Vice President how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?”
Biden responds aggressively “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings.”
He continued, speaking over Doocy’s follow-up question:
Here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. you should be asking him the question why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader if that’s what happened, that appears what happened. You should be looking at Trump. Trump’s doing this because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum. And he’s using the abuse of power and every element of the presidency to try to do something to smear me. Everybody’s looked at this and said there’s nothing there. Ask the right questions.
Another reporter asks if Trump could be impeached for this. Biden responded:
Depending on what the House finds, he could be impeached but I’m not making that judgment now. The House should investigate it. The House should investigate this. This appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power. To get on the phone with a foreign leader who is looking for help from the United States and ask about me and imply things if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, we know that’s what Giuliani did.
