Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham broke his silence on the Ukrainian situation and called for an investigation into Joe Biden. Specifically, he called for AG Barr to open an investigation into what the Biden’s were up to in Ukraine.
Lindsey also stated that wants Bill Barr to go even further – open an investigation into what Hillary Clinton and her team did in Ukraine during the 2016 election.
Graham uses Joe Biden’s own words against him reminding everyone that Biden claims this was looked at a claim Lindsey disputes.
That said, it would not be shocking to find out that AG Barr is looking to see if taxes were properly paid on Ukrainian income from anyone connected to this and one would expect Ukrainian officials to comply with income statements, etc.
In other words – this is just starting to heat up. Here is more from The Washington Times.
“Joe Biden said everybody’s looked at this and found nothing. Who is everybody? Nobody has looked at the Ukraine and the Bidens,” Mr. Graham said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”
“There is enough smoke here,” he said. “Was there a relationship between the vice president’s family and the Ukraine business world that was inappropriate? I don’t know. Somebody other than me needs to look at it and I don’t trust the media to get to the bottom of it.”
Graham also said that the investigation should extend to Ukraine’s possible involvement in the 2016 election, including leaking information that discredited Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and contributed to his conviction for tax and bank fraud as a result of the Russia probe.
Senator Graham accused the news media of handling Joe Biden and the corruption allegations with kid gloves.
“Can you imagine if this was the Trump family doing business like this?” said Mr. Graham. “I like him a lot. But you can’t have it both ways here.”
