Kamala Harris Says Biden’s Role in Ukraine Situation Is a ‘Distraction’: ‘Leave Joe Biden Alone’

Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) doesn’t feel like former Vice President Joe Biden needs to be part of the narrative surrounding President Donald Trump‘s phone calls with Ukrainian leaders.

As IJR previously reported, Biden — in his own words — bragged about withholding aid to Ukrainian leaders if they did not remove a prosecutor from office. Some argue that the prosecutor needed to go because he was corrupt, while other claim Biden wanted him gone because he was investigating his son, Hunter Biden.

Americans learned last week that President Trump suggested that Ukrainian leaders look into the alleged corruption of Biden’s actions during a phone call, the transcript of which Trump released.

Although the transcript doesn’t have a direct quid pro quo outlined and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said he did not feel pressured, some Democrats believe Trump withheld aid from a strategic partner in order to dig up dirt on a 2020 competitor and have announced an official impeachment inquiry into the president.

Biden seems to be a key player in these conversations about corruption in Ukraine, but many Democrats have been hesitant to say the investigation should include an examination of his actions as vice president.

As IJR previously reported, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) struggled to explain whether it was ethical for a vice president to have a child on the board of a major foreign company, as Biden did, while leading diplomatic efforts in that region.

Harris similarly struggled to explain why Biden should not be part of this investigation into Ukrainian corruption with U.S. officials.

Watch Harris’s answer below:

“I think that the problem that we’ve got, again, with this issue is that it’s a distraction from the fact that —. Look, as far as I’m concerned, leave Joe Biden alone. Just leave him alone. On this issue of what this president has done, that has been about corrupting America’s democracy, being in cahoots with the foreign leader to yet again try to manipulate the election for president of the United States.”

When asked if it was “bad judgment” for Biden to allow his son to take a role on a foreign oil company, Harris said, “I’m not going to be distracted by what this President is trying to play which is a game.”

Biden has been the frontrunner for the majority of the 2020 primary campaign season, though Warren has been creeping near the top position in several recent polls.

Of course – there’s nothing to see here with Biden and his worthless son’s dealings in the Ukraine. Just move along . .

Wow, so many confused IJR members.

Y’all need to get better sources for your nonsense because whoever is feeding it to you has taken you (willingly, it seems) down a very dark path.

More projection by the Democrats. Biden did it, but the Democrats are trying to blame President Trump of doing it. More of the Democrats accusing others of their bad deeds to try to support their DEMOCRAT INQUISITION.

Shut up Harris! He needs to be investigated and punished. He openly and proudly admitted to bribing the Ukrainians.

LOL – she’s hoping he can salvage the race because she (Dems chosen next Obama) has had a face plant of a campaign. She wants him to salvage so she can be his VP.

Ever notice, how everything that is thrown at Trump, has started with questionable activities, by a Democrat?
Talk about your distraction.
Obama and Hillary collusion = Trump collusion.
Hillary and Russia = Trump and Russia
Biden and the Ukraine = Trump and the Ukraine.
Can’t make this stuff up.
