Former Vice President Joe BidenJoe BidenGordon Sondland expected to appear for House deposition Ivanka Trump on impeachment: ‘Everything’s a question of priorities’ Second intel official considering filing complaint over Trump: report MORE said Friday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpGordon Sondland expected to appear for House deposition Ivanka Trump on impeachment: ‘Everything’s a question of priorities’ Second intel official considering filing complaint over Trump: report MORE “indicted himself” after making public comments about Biden’s role in the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor.
“He’s indicted himself by his own statements,” Biden told the SEIU forum in Los Angeles on Friday.
“This is not about me. It’s not about my son,” he continued. “There’s not a shred of evidence there’s been anything done that has been wrong.”
“He is unhinged. I worry about what he’s going to do, not about me and my family. I’m worried about what he’ll do in the next year of his presidency,” he said.
Biden’s comments came after Trump publicly encouraged Ukraine and China to investigate Biden and his son Hunter.
Trump alleged that Biden thwarted an investigation into his son’s work at a Ukrainian energy company.
However, Trump and Republicans are on the defensive after Speaker Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiBiden: Trump has ‘indicted himself by his own statements’ House Democrats subpoena White House for Ukraine documents House conservatives press Schiff over knowledge of whistleblower complaint MORE (D-Calif.) announced last week that the House would launch a formal impeachment inquiry amid allegations from a whistleblower that Trump sought to persuade Ukraine to investigate Biden.
The president has since stepped up his attacks against Biden, zeroing in on the former vice president’s efforts to pressure Ukraine to dismiss a senior prosecutor who at one point had investigated an energy company where Biden’s son had served as a board member.
There is no evidence that Biden advocated for the prosecutor’s removal as a means of protecting his son.
