By Townhall. Former Vice President Joe Biden was asked about his shady dealings in Ukraine during an interview with New Hampshire’s WMUR-TV over the weekend.
“What about that council on foreign relations video, where you’re bragging about getting the prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, fired?” WMUR’s reporter asked. “If average Joe, and not Joe Biden, is watching that, how do they tell the difference between that kind of pressure that you exerted and the pressure that the president exerted?”
“Because I was exerting the pressure of the United States government, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the European Union and all of our allies,” Biden immediately replied. “All of them. Because the guy was corrupt. And I was the one who went to their Parlament and said it’s time for you to stand up and stop the corruption. You have a chance to break out of this now. That’s what that was about.”

Not anybody in the United States of America that has been involved at all. Not anybody abroad … I did my job, and I did it really well. The problem is here, this is all about Trump’s ability to take the focus off.
