So where are the media/Dems calling Biden out for obstructing an investigation?
Via Fox News:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday he is “embarrassed” for his former Senate colleague Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., over his request for documents pertaining to Hunter Biden and Ukraine.
Biden also criticized President Trump during an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, claiming Graham cannot break with the president for fear of losing his Senate seat in 2020.
Lemon told Biden that Graham once called him the “nicest person” and recalled how the two worked together for many years.
After a pause, Biden turned to Lemon and said, “They’re asking Lindsey Graham. They have him under their thumb right now. They know he knows if he comes out against Trump he’s got a real tough road for reelection.”
On Thursday, Graham — the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee — sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting the release of any documents related to contacts between Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, and former Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko.
Graham’s letter, which was released as the final day of public hearings in the House impeachment inquiry into Trump wrapped up, asked Pompeo to release a series of documents and transcripts of conversations in 2016 between Biden and Poroshenko in relation to an investigation into the Ukrainian natural gas company, Burisma Holdings.
