Joe Biden does a nice pivot when asked if he’ll testify in an impeachment hearing about Ukraine and President Trump.
He pivots away from himself and directly to President Trump: ‘Not going to let them take their eye off the ball’
The problem is that Biden is on video (see below) bragging about his refusal to give Ukraine money unless they fire their prosecutor general. Isn’t THAT a quid pro quo?
Wowza! In the video below, former Obama VP Joe Biden arrogantly describes how he rigged the judicial system of Ukraine by threatening to withhold one billion dollars if a prosecutor wasn’t fired:
HERE’S A TRANSCRIPT OF WHAT BIDEN HAD TO SAY:
I was—not I, but it just happened to be that was the assignment I got. I got all the good ones. And so I got Ukraine. And I remember going over, convincing our team, our leaders to—convincing that we should be providing for loan guarantees. And I went over, I guess, the 12th, 13th time to Kiev. And I was supposed to announce that there was another billion-dollar loan guarantee. And I had gotten a commitment from Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk that they would take action against the state prosecutor. And they didn’t.”
“So they said they had—they were walking out to a press conference. I said, nah, I’m not going to—or, we’re not going to give you the billion dollars. They said you have no authority. You’re not the president. The president said—I said, call him.”
“I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at them and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time.”
“Well, there’s still—so they made some genuine, substantial changes institutionally and with people. But one of the three institutions, there’s now some backsliding.
