[Ed. – However this fiasco ends, it won’t be good for Biden … either one of them.]
Biden – who is a virtual gaffe machine – should have kept his big mouth shut about how he used the threat of withholding a billion-dollar loan guarantee to get the Ukrainian government to fire that country’s prosecutor in 2015.
Instead the video shows him going into his own-stream-of-consciousness routine about how he dealt with Ukrainian officials, culminating in this off-the-cuff remark:
“I looked at them and said, ‘I’m leaving in six hours.’ If the prosecutor is not fired, you’re not getting the money.
“Well, son of a bitch, he got fired.”
That declaration was delivered in a joking tone. But the joke turned out to be on Biden.
… But the Democrats’ insistence that President Trump was engaged in a quid pro quo regarding Ukraine opens the doors for the Republicans to question whether Biden’s son was engaged in what you might call a “kid pro quo.”
