Biden Rips DOJ Investigation Threat: ‘Inappropriate’ Just Like ‘Giuliani’s Style and This Administration’

Former Vice President Joe Biden rebuked the Trump administration’s “inappropriate” threat to investigate deals that his son, Hunter Biden, made with Ukranian officials in his role on the board of directors of a Ukranian natural gas producer.

During an interview with New Hampshire’s WMUR on Tuesday, Biden discussed his candidacy and was inevitably questioned over Rudy Giuliani‘s push of allegations surrounding his son.

Responding to the threat of potentially being investigated, Biden suggested that it’s not Giuliani’s place to seek out an investigation, especially for something that “never happened.”

“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,” Biden said.

As IJR Red reported, Giuliani initially encouraged an investigation into Hunter Biden’s business deals, claiming that the “conflicts are too apparent to be ignored and should be investigated quickly and expeditiously.”

Specifically, the attorney has insinuated that Joe Biden potentially worked with his son to remove a prosecutor who had investigated the gas company that Hunter serves as a director for.

“All the reports indicated that not a single, solitary thing was inappropriate about what my son did,” the former vice president stated. “He never talked to me. He never talked to anybody in the administration.

Biden then denounced the “inappropriate” behavior stemming from President Donald Trump:

“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.”

Continuing to address the allegations, Biden gave his “word” that there was absolutely no communication between the two on Hunter’s business dealings, as he more deeply explained the circumstances:

“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.”

As IJR Blue reported, Trump has not called on Attorney General William Barr to investigate Biden, but he told Politico that it “certainly […] would be an appropriate thing” to do. He also said that an investigation like this “could be a very big situation” for the former vice president.

“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.” But I’ll bet Joe thinks it’s okay if you want to use a Dossier with fake and untrue crap in it to illegally obtain a FISA Warrent from corrupt TOP Justice Executives to SPY on an American Citizen and Presidential Candidate. That’s APPROPRIATE!? Okay Joe……sure……….ya BOZO!!!

I would think they want to investigate Joe Biden’s threat to halt the payment of promised monies from the USA to the Ukraine government, if they didn’t back off their investigation of his son’s dealings. He not only did that, but bragged about it on camera.

Biden had learned the lessons on how to lie from his former “boss”, an expert Prevaricator-in-Chief. IF the Ukrainian deal “didn’t happen”, did Hunter also NOT receive $1.5 Billion from the Chinese Communists and the Bank of China – – – while accompanying VP Daddy on Air Force 2 rather than use commercial airlines for his business travel? How many $$$ did VP Daddy receive?
