After President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani threatened that he is going to travel to Ukraine to request from Ukrainian authorities to investigate Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, the former Vice President now attacked Giuliani in an interview with New Hampshire’s WMUR saying that his threats were inappropriate.
‘’It’s sort of Giuliani’s style and this administration. It is inappropriate. Unrelated to me, it’s just inappropriate to send your lawyer to a foreign government to try to get them to do something that has no bearing except to try to embarrass.’’
According to the New York Times, during the time when he was a Vice President, Biden threatened to withhold $1 billion in loans to the Ukrainian government if it did not dismiss the prosecutor, who was ousted shortly thereafter.
In the same interview in which Biden criticized Giuliani, Biden said that he and his son did not do anything inappropriate.
“All the reports indicated that not a single, solitary thing was inappropriate about what my son did. He never talked to me. He never talked to anybody in the administration,’’ Biden said. “There was no communication with my office. We never once spoke about it. It came out of a law firm in New York City that he was working with. He never once asked me. Never discussed anything with me. And with all the investigation that’s been done, there’s not a single piece of evidence that he ever talked to anybody in government about it.’’
According to The Hill, Giuliani has since called off the trip to Ukraine, but Biden accused him and the Trump administration of using their legal powers for political purposes.
‘’I can’t remember any lawyer representing the president, conferring with the president, deciding to go overseas, where a government relies on U.S. largesse to try to get them to do something that everybody knows never happened,’’ said Giuliani.
