(Tea Party PAC) – Sleepy Joe just got a BIG wakeup call.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee finally launched an investigation into Joe Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine while he was in office.
Biden responded by say9ing that Graham will “regret” the move his “whole life.”
On Thursday, Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting documents to aid in determining whether Biden pushed for the firing of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin to squash a sweeping probe into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy giant where his son, Hunter Biden, served as a board member. The younger Biden was compensated generously, making up to $83,000 a month for several years while on the Burisma’s board.
“Lindsey is about to go down in a way that I think he’s going to regret his whole life,” Biden told CNN host Don Lemon on Friday during an interview. “I say Lindsey, I just — I’m just embarrassed by what you’re doing, for you. I mean, my Lord.”

“They have him under their thumb right now. They know he knows that if he comes out against Trump, he’s got a real tough road for reelection, number one,” Biden continued of Graham.
He then said that he is “angered” by the probe because he has been friends with Graham since their time together in the Senate and suggested, of course, that President Trump may have pressured him to launch the probe.
“He knows me; he knows my son; he knows there’s nothing to this,” he vented. “Trump is now essentially holding power over him that even the Ukrainians wouldn’t yield to. The Ukrainians would not yield to, quote, ‘investigate Biden’ — there’s nothing to investigate about Biden or his son.”
Graham’s letter to Pompeo requested documents and communications relating to Biden’s phone calls with Poroshenko in February and March of 2016. He pointed to media reports that the two had discussed demands to dismiss Shokin for alleged corruption before he was removed from office on March 29, 2016.
The senator also requested documents and communications between Biden and his office and Poroshenko and his office around Feb. 2, 2016, when Burisma founder Mykola Zlochevsky’s home was raided and Shokin was fired.
Graham is also seeking all documents and communications related to a meeting between Devon Archer, a business partner of Hunter Biden, and then-Secretary of State John Kerry on March 2, 2016.
Graham’s request comes after two weeks of public testimony on the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, which centers around a “whistleblower” complaint that Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine in an attempt to pressure newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Burisma and the Bidens.
