On Monday, Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said that President Trump’s defense team presented a “tsunami” of evidence against former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, and his business dealings in Ukraine.
In a series of tweets, Sen. Graham defended President Trump and his defense team’s presentation in his impeachment trial in the Senate, saying that President Trump was right to be worried about the Bidens’ business dealings in Ukraine. Sen. Graham also said that President Trump’s defense team gave “Compelling, damning presentations that the Bidens have not been investigated and the allegations against them have not been debunked.”
The South Carolina Republican also said that the allegations “most definitely should not be swept under the rug.”
Graham concluded, “If one can find a scintilla of evidence about Biden corruption in Ukraine, the House case falls apart. Today we have heard a tsunami.”
On Wednesday, Sen. Graham said that he wants to know why no one is asking about Hunter Biden and how he made his money in Ukraine.
“As to the Bidens, I can promise you no one has looked at whether or not there was a conflict of interest, and no one has taken the time to explain how Hunter Biden got rich in the Ukraine and his father didn’t know anything about it,” Graham said. “As much as I like Joe Biden, if it were Lindsey Graham or Mike Pence or Donald Trump, you would be looking.”
“I don’t think Joe Biden is corrupt, but I don’t think he is beyond being looked at. I love Joe Biden, but I can tell you I am not going to sit on the sidelines and just watch the Trumps be looked at,” Graham continued. “I didn’t ask for this. I will tell you that Joe Biden is one of the finest men I know, but he’s got to explain this. Somebody needs to look at this.”
“Here’s what I would say, how many members of the body, children, are on foreign boards receiving this kind of money,?” Graham asked reporters.
His remarks come after Sen. Graham and a group of GOP senators held a press conference Wednesday afternoon to criticize Democrats for the way they have been handling the impeachment process against President Trump.
The House of Representatives officially voted Jan. 15 to send the articles of impeachment against the President to the Senate and approved the House’s impeachment managers.
