Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is calling on former Vice President Joe Biden to release transcripts of conversations he had with Chinese and Ukrainian officials while he served in the Obama White House.
McDaniel’s requests come after President Donald Trump decided to release the transcript of his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Democrats are accusing Trump of abusing the powers of his office by asking Ukraine to investigate Biden for alleged corruption.
“First it was the Russian hoax. Now it’s the Ukraine hoax,” McDaniel wrote in a press statement urging Biden to reveal his communication with world leaders. “Once again, Joe Biden has shown he is just as extreme as the rest of the 2020 Democrats who are desperate to bring President Trump down.”
She added: “Now that the President has authorized the release of the transcript of his call with President Zelensky, we call on Biden to release the transcripts of his calls as Vice President with Ukrainian and Chinese leaders while his son was conducting shady business deals in those countries.”
There is no evidence Biden had the prosecutor fired to help his son, nor is there proof that Trump offered a quid pro quo to Ukraine if they were to investigate Biden’s actions. Biden announced Tuesday he will call for impeachment if Trump fails to comply with investigations by House Democrats, according to a campaign aide.
Biden’s campaign has not responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
