Biden blasts Trump, demands he release transcript of call with foreign leader

"If these reports are true, then there is truly no bottom to President Trump’s willingness to abuse his power and abase our country. This behavior is particularly abhorrent because it exploits the foreign policy of our country and undermines our national security for political purposes," Biden said in the statement.

"It means that he used the power and resources of the United States to pressure a sovereign nation—a partner that is still under direct assault from Russia—pushing Ukraine to subvert the rule of law in the express hope of extracting a political favor," he added..........

Biden said: "Such clear-cut corruption damages and diminishes our institutions of government by making them tools of a personal political vendetta."

"At minimum, Donald Trump should immediately release the transcript of the call in question, so that the American people can judge for themselves, and direct the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to stop stonewalling and release the whistleblower notification to the Congress."...

I Wrote About the Bidens and Ukraine Years Ago. Then the Right-Wing Spin Machine Turned the Story Upside Down.

 

".........I published a story reporting that Vice President Joe Biden had just traveled to Ukraine, in part to send a message to the Ukrainian government that it needed to crack down on corruption.

But I also wrote that his anti-corruption message might be undermined by the association of his son Hunter with one of Ukraine’s largest natural gas companies, Burisma Holdings, and with its owner, Mykola Zlochevsky. Zlochevsky had been Ukraine’s ecology minister under former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, a pro-Russian leader who had been forced into exile in Russia.

Hunter Biden had joined the board of Burisma in April 2014, the same month that British officials froze Zlochevsky’s London bank accounts containing $23 million......

 

The then-vice president issued his demands for greater anti-corruption measures by the Ukrainian government despite the possibility that those demands would actually increase – not lessen — the chances that Hunter Biden and Burisma would face legal trouble in Ukraine. .......

Shokin had been forced from office at Biden’s urging because he had failed to thoroughly investigate corruption and stifled efforts to expose embezzlement and misconduct by public officials.

Biden did threaten to withhold $1 billion in U.S. loan guarantees unless Shokin was ousted. But that was because Shokin had blocked serious anti-corruption investigations, not because he was investigating Burisma. ...

Exclusive: Jared Kushner tells Axios contributor @BarakRavid that many of his efforts since he started working at the White House have been focused on “cleaning up the messes” left by Joe Biden.
 
Kushner’s swing against Biden came in response to Biden’s remarks in a 60 Minutes interview where he said it was “improper” for Trump to appoint son-in-law Kushner and daughter Ivanka for senior positions in the White House.

Interesting to hear Jared suggest he’s “cleaning up
@JoeBiden messes.” Biden’s skillful management of the Recovery Act in ‘09/‘10 helped lay a foundation for 8 yrs of growth after a cataclysmic econ crisis.
 
@realDonaldTrump is the beneficiary of that work.

Slumlord Jared was never elected by any Americans and he was never approved by the Congress. He doesn't even have a legitimate national security clearance.

 What the slumlord needs to do is go back to his own properties in New Jersey and Baltimore and clean up his own rat infestation mess.

Joe Biden denied Holy Communion at Florence church

 

FLORENCE, S.C. — Former Vice President Joe Biden, a candidate for the Democratic nomination in the 2020 presidential race, was denied Holy Communion on Sunday morning at a Florence church.

Father Robert E. Morey of Saint Anthony Catholic Church confirmed Monday afternoon that he had denied the presidential candidate Holy Communion because of his stance on abortion. Biden, a lifelong Catholic, had attended the church’s 9 a.m. Mass.

Communion is one of seven sacraments in the Roman Catholic Church. The others are baptism, reconciliation, confirmation, marriage, anointing of the sick and holy orders.

In communion, parishioners receive the Holy Eucharist, a wafer and wine that when consecrated become the body and blood of Jesus, according to Catholic doctrine. In order to receive it, a Catholic must be in the state of grace, have gone to confession since his or her most recent mortal sin, have a belief in the doctrine of transubstantiation (a belief that the wafer and wine become the body and blood of Jesus), observe the Eucharistic fast and not be under censure.

“Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden,” Morey told the Morning News via email. “Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the Church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself or herself outside of Church teaching.”

Morey said that as a priest, it is his responsibility to minister to those souls entrusted to his care and that he must do so in even the most difficult situations.

“I will keep Mr. Biden in my prayers,” Morey added.

Disagree with him all you want. Support him or don’t. But after 4 years of Trump rallies, watching this @JoeBiden town hall feels like chicken soup for the soul. The man is decent, authentic and gives a damn about other humans. How refreshing.

North Korea calls Biden a 'rabid dog' for insulting its dignity

It wasn’t immediately clear which of the former vice president's comments provoked Pyongyang's anger.

 

“Anyone who dare slanders the dignity of the supreme leadership of the D.P.R.K, can never spare the D.P.R.K's merciless punishment whoever and wherever,” said the North Korean statement, referring to the country by its formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

“Rabid dogs like Baiden can hurt lots of people if they are allowed to run about. They must be beaten to death with a stick, before it is too late,” it said........

....(Biden) has specifically named Kim and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, calling the pair “thugs” and sometimes detailing Kim’s human rights abuses and attacks against dissenters.

"It's becoming more and more obvious that repugnant dictators, as well as those who admire and ‘love’ them, find Joe Biden threatening,” said Andrew Bates, a Biden campaign spokesman......

I do have to wonder if Trump,  or one of his cronies,  called Kim and asked that his government make such a statement about Biden.   (to imply that Biden is too unprofessional to be President and negotiate with non allied foreign leaders).

Clearly the follow-up statement by Biden's campaign spokesman references Trump.

Of course the Biden comments pale in comparison to comments Trump has made about foreign leaders,  but in Trump's case these leaders were US allies!

Volker just said it's a "conspiracy theory" that Biden was corrupt in his dealings with Ukraine while VP.
 
He continued, "I have known Vice President Biden for 24 years. He is an honorable man and I hold him in the highest regard."
 
:rolleyes:

Volker was a republican requested Witness at the House impeachment inquiry.

"I am disappointed, and quite frankly I'm angered, by the fact -- he knows me; he knows my son; he knows there's nothing to this," Biden said. "Trump is now essentially holding power over him that even the Ukrainians wouldn't yield to.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden called an Iowa voter "a damn liar" and challenged him to a push-up contest and an IQ test after the man accused Biden of helping his son get on the board of a Ukraine gas company to win political access.

That's exactly what's needed. When you have all these people spreading lies and ridiculous conspiracy theories that have been cooked up and fed to them from Fox and other Extreme right-wing media outlets--  like Alex Jones --

It's time to get up and stand up for the truth and attack those lies with the truth!

Joe Biden is defending calling a voter a "damn liar" after the heated town hall exchange drew criticism this week. "The fact of the matter is, this guy stood up, and he was, in fact, lying," Biden told NPR. "And I just pointed out, 'You're a liar.'"
