Liz Warren Stammers After Being Asked If She Would Allow Her Vice President’s Son To Sit On A Foreign Company’s Board

Chris White on September 25, 2019

Sen. Elizabeth Warren appeared to stammer and waffle Wednesday when a reporter asked her if it would be ethical if her hypothetical vice president’s son served on the board of a foreign company.

“No,” Warren told a reporter at a campaign stop in New Hampshire before pausing to reconsider her answer. She added: “I don’t know. I mean I’d have to go back and look at the details.” The reporter was asking the question in context to Warren’s pledge to end corruption in Washington, D.C.

Warren’s comments come as Democrats consider what to make of former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, who served on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company that came under scrutiny by authorities there. Biden’s son served on the company’s board while the former vice president served in the White House.

President Donald Trump has taken proverbial slings and arrows recently after acknowledging Sunday that he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to open an investigation into whether Biden called for the firing of a prosecutor to protect his own son.

transcript of Trump’s phone call with Zelensky in July confirmed the request, but did not demonstrate that he threatened to withhold aid if the investigation weren’t carried out. (RELATED: Here’s The Transcript Of Trump’s Call With The Ukrainian President)

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.

Sen. Bernie Sanders appeared to take a different tack when asked about the Ukraine kerfuffle. He did not confirm to reporters Tuesday whether he would use Hunter Biden’s past to win political points against Biden, who is leading the Democratic presidential field. He also suggested a failed Trump impeachment might help the president.

Warren’s campaign has not responded to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  • They rejected my post because they are hacks....let me try again. This writer is a dope..."no evidence that Biden had the prosecutor that was investigating his son...." Biden was on CAMERA BRAGGING about it....and did so at the BEHEST of President OBAMA. So Obama committed a crime and had Biden do it for him.

  • Running bare(nadler) jumped in the water LITTLE WHITE DOVE(warren) did the same...... when their hands met the RAGING RIVER(TRUMP) pulled them down now the'll always be together in the happy hunting ground (Where used up democRATS go)...... HUMM it on the way to VOTE....

  • You mean complying with the Contract between the US and Ukraine specifically covering co-operating on corruption investigations, signed by president Clinton?

  • You mean with Biden sitting with CFR members bragging how the Ukranian government cowed down to his hubris quid pro quo regarding the prosecutor and Hunter. Biden's ultimate downfall will be mouth.

  • Now that she has outmaneuvered Biden it would appear that Warren has a clear field for the nomination. But if she gets flustered over a simple question like this how is she going to handle a campaign against Trump? Perhaps it was meant to take out both Biden and Trump.

  • The son should be able to have any job that he wants, but it should be illegal to use his relationship to a politician to get favors.
