Biden goes on the attack over Ukraine controversy, pledges to beat Trump ‘like a drum’

Former Vice President Joe Biden went on the offense Saturday over President Trump’s July phone call with the president of Ukraine, in which Trump reportedly urged the leader to investigate Biden’s son’s dealings in the country -- with Biden backing calls for a House investigation and for the White House to release the transcript of the call.

“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,” he told reporters in Iowa.


“Depending on what the House finds, he could be impeached but I’m not making that judgment now,” he said. “The House should investigate it, this appears to be an overwhelming abuse of power.”

He went on to call Trump a “serial abuser.”

“He abuses power everywhere he can and if he sees any threat to staying in power, he’ll do whatever he has to do -- but this crosses the line,” he said.

“The whistle blower doesn’t even know what was said...apparently you do? “

No, I don’t have to know what was said. With Biden running for the Dim nod, it is a matter Trump could have, and in my view should have, bumped over to the State Department and the DOJ and to have let them decide on appropriate questions to anyone in the Ukraine.

As it is Trump just made what may be “innocent” appear it to be about him going after Biden’s son as a way of politically going after Biden.

If it all had been left to State and Treasury, Trump could have honestly stayed out of it, and if there was Biden shenanigans deserving of Ukraine’s investigation, questions about it would have not come from Trump personally, and thus divorcing it from any political considerations.

I think Trump just created another headache he didn’t need, that’s all.

Poor useless, Democrat, Joe Biden, No crowds, No supporters, No money, No brains, No smarts, No MoJo, No nothing!!! Case closed!!! Joe Biden, I hate to tell you this, but, you will not have to worry about beating POTUS, Donald J. Trump like a drum, when you run against him for POTUS, because you will never get the chance to run against him.

It is almost sad how Biden is reverting back to the old timey speak.

I have seen people with dementia doing the same thing - totally out of touch with what is happening today and practically losing 70-80 years in a mental time warp.

There was some big event in Iowa today for the Presidential candidates. Biden was there. He probably said something about great it was to be there in Nebraska.

Polk County Democrat Steak Fry. Raining.

Seventeen Democrat candidates and horror at environment-destroying beef.

Oh, that would be hilarious. Like when Trump brought in Clinton’s lady victims and had them sit in the front row at his debate with Hillary.

He’s the best!

Crying didn’t do Ed Muskie any good back in 1972.

He claimed it was just snowfall melting on his face, but his diatribe was aimed at the Manchester Union Leader for attacking his wife.

Fine, defend your wife, as you should. But Muskie’s tears seemed to say, “Isn’t it terrible that there are still people out there who disagree with liberalism? And after all we’ve done for them. It just makes me sick!!”

The other 200 democrats running have to be careful - they really do want Biden out - but they don’t want to give power to us... Defending him too much when in fact he’s guilty won’t work either. Plus lots of House Dems are going to be pulled in on similar scams...
