Vice President Mike Pence is publicly urging Ukraine’s president to investigate former vice president Joe Biden and Biden’s family.

Vice President Mike Pence told reporters on Thursday, Oct. 3, at an event in Arizona that he thinks that “the American people have a right to know if the vice president of the United States or his family profited from his position as vice president during the last administration.”

He explained that Hunter Biden who is the second son of former Vice President Joe Biden was paid 50,000 dollars a month to serve on the board of an energy company while Joe Biden was leading the Obama administration on Ukrainian relations.

Vice President Mike Pence backs President Donald Trump’s call to investigate the Bidens and also told reporters why he and President Trump were elected: “One of the main reasons we were elected to Washington D.C. was to drain the swamp.”

Before that, President Trump on Thursday, Oct. 3, also said Ukraine should investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son.

Speaking to members of the press at the White House before leaving for an event in Florida, President Trump also said, “China should start an investigation into the Bidens.”

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday, Oct. 1, appeared on “America’s Newsroom” with co-anchors Bill Hemmer and Sandra Sanders and put forward that instead of impeachment, President Trump is to be applauded for his efforts in “draining the swamp.”

“He is exposing the real scandal,” said Sarah Sanders. “The only corruption in this entire process has to do with the Bidens. It’s not the president. It’s not the White House. It’s the fact that Joe Biden was acting inappropriately and making probably sweetheart deals for his son,” she said.
