On Sunday during an interview with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News, Senator Lindsey Graham made a bold move by calling on the Department of Justice to investigate “all things Ukraine” after recent revelations show questionable behavior between 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and the Ukrainian government.
Graham started by commenting on a recent statement where Biden claimed that people had already looked into the scandal.
“Joe Biden said everybody’s looked at this and found nothing,” Graham said. “Who is everybody? Nobody’s looked at the Ukraine and the Bidens. Nobody’s looked at the role the Ukraine played in the 2016 election.”
“Do you think the media in America would really look at it and report on it if there was something bad for the Bidens or they unduly interfered in the 2016 election?” Graham continued. “I’m calling for somebody in the Justice Department to look at all things Ukraine. We have looked at all things Russia and Trump, his family, everything about his family, every transaction between the Trump campaign and Russia.”
“Now it’s time to see whether or not the Ukrainians released information regarding Manafort, who was Trump’s campaign manager. What relationships, if any, did the Biden world have to the Ukraine,” Graham added. “What role, if any, did the Ukraine play in the 2016 election? So nobody’s looked at this, but somebody should. So I’m hoping the Department of Justice will look at the Biden-Ukraine connection like we looked at the Trump-Russia connection.”
“Can you imagine if this were the Trump family doing business like this?” he continued. “I like Joe Biden, I like him a lot, but you can’t have it both ways here. They’ve done everything but turn the Trump world upside down, when it comes to this president there are no rules including a phone call, everything is fair game when it comes to Trump, there are no privileges.”

On Saturday, Biden had a meltdown when he was confronted by Fox News reporter Peter Doocy who asked him about his questionable behavior with Ukraine in the past.
Doocy started by asking Biden if he abused his power as Vice President by firing a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating his son.
“Mr. Vice President, how many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealings?” Doocy question.
This simple question set off a nerve in Biden.
“I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” Biden said. “And here’s what I know, I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question, why is he on the phone with a foreign leader trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that’s what happened, that appears to be what happened, you should be looking at Trump.”
“Everybody looked at this, and everybody’s looked at it and said there’s nothing there,” Biden added. “Ask the right questions!”
