Vice President Mike Pence backed President Donald Trump's effort to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden for corruption on Thursday.

“In 2016, the American people elected President Trump and I for many reasons: get the economy moving again, to rebuild our military, but they also elected us to drain the swamp,” Pence said in an interview with the Arizona Republic.

Pence was traveling to Arizona while campaigning for U.S. Senator Martha McSally’s re-election.

Pence stood by Trump’s decision to talk to the Ukrainian president about a possible investigation into former Vice presdient Joe Biden's corruption.

Hunter Biden was paid $83,000 a month to serve on the board of an energy company while Joe Biden was leading the Obama administration on Ukrainian relations.

Pence acknowledged that it deserved investigation.

“I think the American people have a right to know if someone who held the second-highest office in the land was involved in corrupt activities, either in China or in Ukraine,” Pence said.

Trump told reporters Thursday morning that China should also launch an investigation into possible corruption by Hunter Biden.

Speaking to the press from the South Lawn, en route to Florida, Trump said China's President Xi Jinping should be concerned about the "billions of dollars" being "taken out of his country" by Hunter Biden.

"China should start an investigation into the Bidens because what happened with China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine," Trump said.

“The reality is the American people have a right to know,” Pence said.

“And you’re going to continue to hear this president call for the truth to come out, that people understand what was going on.”

On Thursday, the fired Ukrainian prosecutor, at the center of the Ukraine corruption scandal, said he was ordered to stop investigating Joe Biden's son Hunter Biden's company, according to documents handed over to Congress by the State Department’s inspector general.

The documents include transcripts from a private interview earlier this year between President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani and the former Ukraine chief prosecutor Viktor Shokin.

According to details of that interview, Shokin says he was ordered to back off his investigation of a natural gas firm that Hunter Biden was a board member of.

On Wednesday, a photo emerged showing Joe Biden, while serving as vice president, playing golf with his son Hunter and his son's Ukrainian business partner, despite recent pleas of ignorance from the 2020 Democrat.

The image has appeared after Biden recently snapped at a Fox News reporter that he has "never spoken" to Hunter "about his overseas business dealings."
