In DC, what goes around comes around: Bauer

Joe and Hunter BidenA conservative activist believes the controversy surrounding Joe Biden's activities with Ukraine while he was Barack Obama's vice president may prove problematic for the 2020 presidential hopeful.

During a townhall speech in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Joe Biden went on the attack against President Donald Trump:

Biden: "In full view of the world and the American people, Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts. To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached …. [He is] shooting holes in the Constitution, and we cannot let him get away with it."

But the Ukrainian president refuted the claims by Biden and other Democrats that Trump put pressure on him to investigate Biden's son's dealings with a Ukrainian energy company. And the president contends that Biden is the one who is guilty of "quid pro quo" when he threatened to withhold aid unless the Ukrainian government fired the prosecutor investigating the matter.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)Gary Bauer of the Campaign for Working Families is confident the controversy has already hurt Biden's candidacy. "Polling data are showing the American people are now becoming aware of the lucrative contract and job that his son Hunter Biden got," he tells OneNewsNow.

Bauer – a longtime resident of the DC area – says this is the kind of corruption that has been going on in Washington forever.

"And it's because Donald Trump has been trying to clean up that corruption that these corrupt forces are trying to take him down," he adds. "So, I think that it's too early to know how all this will play out – but I think it very well could end up biting the people who started it rather than taking President Trump down."

Since entering the face, Biden has been the frontrunner – but now he has fallen behind Massachusetts' Senator Elizabeth Warren in a compilation of Democratic presidential polls by RealClearPolitics.
