Joe Biden Threatens Lindsey Graham: He'll 'Regret' Investigating Me 'His Whole Life'
Former Vice President 'angered' over Senator's probe into 'actions' in Ukraine
Former Vice President Joe Biden responded to the news on Friday that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was launching an investigation into his 'actions' with Ukraine while he was in the White House, by saying he will “regret” the move his “whole life.”
On Thursday, Neon Nettle reported that Graham sent the letter requesting documents from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to assist in answering questions regarding accusations that Biden was involved in the termination of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to extinguish the probe into natural gas company Burisma Holdings, when his son, Hunter Biden was on the board.
Hunter Biden made $83,000 a month for several years while he was on the board of Burisma Holdings.
Speaking to CNN's Don Lemon on Friday, Joe Biden said:
“Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life."
“I say Lindsey, I just — I’m just embarrassed by what you’re doing, for you. I mean, my Lord.”
“They have him under their thumb right now. They know he knows that if he comes out against Trump, he’s got a real tough road for reelection, number one,” Biden said, referencing Graham.
Biden then stated that because of his 'long friendship' with Graham, the probe had "angered" him, suggesting President Donald Trump may have pressured him to launch the investigation.
“He knows me; he knows my son; he knows there’s nothing to this,” Biden argued.
“Trump is now essentially holding power over him that even the Ukrainians wouldn’t yield to," the former Vice President asserted.
"The Ukrainians would not yield to, quote, ‘investigate Biden’ — there’s nothing to investigate about Biden or his son," he added.
No stone left unturned
Graham requested documents and communications related to Biden’s phone calls with Poroshenko on Feb. 11, 18, and 19, and March 22, 2016.

This reminds me of Biden’s decree to the media to silence me on September 29th.
Now a threat to a US Senator. This is getting to be more and more like my old mafia cases. They sure do sound like crooks.
The Senator also requested communications and documents between Biden, his office, and Poroshenko and his office between Feb. 2, 2016, and when Mykola Zlochevsky’s home was raided and Shokin’s removal.
Graham then requested documents and communications relating to Hunter Biden's business partner, Devon Archer, and then-Secretary of State John Kerry on March 2, 2016.
According to a bombshell allegation by a top Ukraine lawmaker on Wednesday, Hunter Biden and his Ukrainian business partners allegedly received $16.5 million that was "obtained by criminal means."
A member of Ukraine's Parliament alleged that Hunter Biden and his partners, enriched themselves through Burisma Holdings using money that was stolen from Ukrainian citizens.
On Friday, President Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, accused Biden of bribing the then Ukrainian leader so he would "fire a prosecutor who is investigating the vice president's son."
Giuliani, who is now at the center of the House's impeachment investigation, made the claim during his interview with Eric Bolling on America This Week.
The news comes as the Democratic-led impeachment probe against Trump picked, headed by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, reached its second week.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi launched the impeachment probe in September following a complaint from a 'whistleblower' who claimed Trump pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate the Bidens.
