VP Hopeful J.D. Vance Obliterates NBC Host Over Biden’s Legal Targeting of Trump

In a new interview on Sunday, Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH) attacked left-leaning NBC News anchor Kristen Welker over President Joe Biden’s political charges against former President Donald Trump.

Vance said this in response to a question about whether Trump would target the Biden family if he were to win in November during an interview on the network’s “Meet The Press” program:

“Well, first of all, Kristen, I find it interesting how much the media and the Democrats have lost their mind over this particular quote. Donald Trump is talking about appointing a special prosecutor to investigate Joe Biden for wrongdoing. Joe Biden has done exactly that for the last few years and has done far more in addition to that to engage in a campaign of lawfare against his political opposition. I think what Donald Trump is simply saying is we ought to investigate the prior administration.” Vance said.

“There are obviously many instances of wrongdoing. The House Oversight Committee has identified a number of corrupt business transactions that may or may not be criminal. Of course you have to investigate to find out. So I think Donald Trump’s saying, ‘look, let’s do the basic work of investigating wrongdoing,’ is a totally reasonable thing for him to do. And frankly, the Biden administration has done far worse. So if you think that what Donald Trump is proposing is a threat to democracy, isn’t what Biden has already done a massive threat to our system of law and government?” he continued.

Welker attempted to distance Biden from the situation by pointing out that the special prosecutor in the Trump cases was not explicitly hired by him.

“I have to reject the premise here. Joe Biden appointed the Attorney General, Merrick Garland, who of course answers to Joe Biden, can be fired by Joe Biden,” Vance said in response.

“So the idea that the Biden administration has nothing to do with the appointment of the special prosecutor, I think, completely betrays a misunderstanding of how our system of government actually works. And of course, Kristen, we have to make this point, Kristen, that the prosecution of Donald Trump in New York, which I think now has fundamentally been thrown in doubt by this immunity case, one of the main guys was a Department of Justice official in the Biden administration who jumped ship to join a local prosecutor’s office to go after Donald Trump.” he added.
