U.S. Vice President Mike Pence broke his silence on the whole impeachment debacle and the left is not happy.
The Democrats and their friends in the media have been foaming at the mouth speculating that there is a rift between Trump and Pence and that Mike was positioning himself to be POTUS if Trump gets convicted in the Senate.
Turns out there were wrong about that too as Mike Pence just offered a strong defense of Trump and called for an investigation into the Bidens.
“The American people have the right to know whether or not the vice president of the United States or his family profited from his position,” Pence told reporters in today in Arizona.
Trump has repeatedly suggested Biden pressured Ukraine to fire a top prosecutor because the prosecutor was investigating a Ukrainian gas company where Hunter Biden sat on the board, a claim for which the president has offered no evidence.
Pence, who had remained largely silent as the political controversy erupted, firmly sided with Trump in his remarks.
“My predecessor had a son who was paid $50,000 a month to be on a Ukrainian board at the time that Vice President Biden was leading the Obama administration’s efforts in Ukraine, I think (that) is worth looking into,” Pence said.
“And the president has made it very clear that he believes … other nations around the world should look into it as well.”
“When you hold the second highest office in the land it comes with unique responsibilities – not just to be above impropriety, but to be above the appearance of impropriety, and clearly in this case there are legitimate questions that ought to be asked,” Pence added in a direct attack on Biden.
Pence also took aim at Democrats generally for what he termed as “endless investigations” of Trump, which he said should end.
