Joe Biden Fumes at Lindsey Graham Over Senate Investigation

Every single election in our lifetime has been exalted as the most important that we’ll ever participate in.  Without fail, some hapless news writer will be saddled with the need to express the sentiment, but with no better way to express it.

And it’s true; as time moves linearly, we culminate wealth and wisdom, and every decision we make is compounded by the gravity of our emotional and economic wealth.  We have more to lose, so these elections become ever more important.

But this one, coming up in 2020, not only will it be the most important, but it is certainly shaping up to be one of the nastiest as well.

The latest drama comes from Senator Lindsey Graham, who this week announced that the Senate would be opening an investigation into the Biden family’s dealings in Ukraine after the subject was all but barred from the “formal impeachment inquiry” being run by the Democrats.

Former Vice President and current 2020 candidate Joe Biden did not take the news lying down.

Former Vice President Joe Biden threatened Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for launching an investigation into his activities with Ukraine while in the Obama White House, stating the Republican will “regret” the move his “whole life.”

On Thursday, Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting documents to aid in determining whether Biden pushed for the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to squash a sweeping probe into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy giant where his son, Hunter Biden, served as a board member. The younger Biden was compensated generously, making up to $83,000 a month for several years while on the Burisma’s board.

“Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life,” Biden told CNN host Don Lemon in a Friday interview in South Carolina. “I say Lindsey, I just — I’m just embarrassed by what you’re doing, for you. I mean, my Lord.”

Biden continued:

“They have him under their thumb right now. They know he knows that if he comes out against Trump, he’s got a real tough road for reelection, number one,” the former vice president continued about the South Carolina senator.

Biden then said he is “angered” by the probe because of his long friendship with Graham dating back to their time together in the Senate and suggested President Trump may have pressured him to launch the probe.

“He knows me; he knows my son; he knows there’s nothing to this,” he vented. “Trump is now essentially holding power over him that even the Ukrainians wouldn’t yield to. The Ukrainians would not yield to, quote, ‘investigate Biden’ — there’s nothing to investigate about Biden or his son.”

Biden began a steady decline in the 2020 polling after the subject of his son’s dealings in Ukraine started making headlines some months ago.
