Graham defends requesting Biden docs: 'That’s the way it works in politics'

Sen. Lindsey Graham defended his request for documents on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter’s work in Ukraine, saying “that’s the way it works in politics.”“I like Joe Biden, I like him a lot, I think he’s a fine man,” the Senate Judiciary chairman said on Monday. “I’m not saying Joe did anything wrong but I want to see the transcripts. But if there’s nothing there I’ll be the first one to say there’s nothing there. But we’re not going to live in a country where only one party gets investigated.”In a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week, Graham requested documents related to phone calls between Biden and then-Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko over the United States’ requests to fire Viktor Shokin, its top prosecutor.
