Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Takes Swing at Biden Over Ukraine Scandal
Democrat presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard took a swing at former Vice President Joe Biden over the Ukraine scandal during an interview on Friday.
Biden has been facing scrutiny over his son’s position at Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings and the firing of a prosecutor who says that he was investigating them for corruption. The prosecutor claims the government was pressured to get rid of him by the then-vice president.
Appearing on Hill.TV’s “Rising” on Friday morning, Gabbard was asked by host Krystal Ball if she would allow her vice president’s son to sit on the board of a Ukrainian energy company if she wins.
“I think that would be a poor decision to make,” Gabbard said.
Rising co-host Saagar Enjeti asserted that many of the Democrat candidates have been “very reluctant to call this out as evidence of corruption” and asked if she was going to.
“I think the perception is certainly a concern,” Gabbard said. “I think we have to look at how we can root out the corruption of the abuse of power and influence within our government, and I think that there’s a lot of examples of it.”
Gabbard also reaffirmed that she is considering boycotting the fourth Democratic presidential debate in protest of the DNC rigging the primaries.
