Republican senators find no evidence of wrongdoing regarding Biden and Ukraine policy

Michael Bloomberg

The Biden campaign is bracing for the prospect that while early results might favour Trump, the lead could shift because Democrats are expected to vote by mail in larger numbers, which they fear will prompt Trump to complain the contest is being stolen, people close to the Biden campaign have said.

The report's authors, Sens.

1% said they already had voted.

Facts First: Biden was not trying to recite the entire Pledge of Allegiance when he said these words.

The campaign said the investigation was founded on "a long-disproven, hardcore rightwing conspiracy theory" and, even before the report was released, issued a detailed statement aiming to rebut point-by-point allegations that it said had always been debunked by media organizations as well as by US and Ukrainian officials. He said that as president, he wouldn't divide the country, as he claimed Trump had done by criticizing how "blue states" have managed the COVID-19 pandemic.

The impeachment trial centred on a phone call Mr Trump made to the Ukrainian president in which he seemed to pressure him to open an inquiry into the Bidens.

Ms Sturgeon said: "We mustn't be hamstrung in essential public health decisions by the lack of necessary economic mitigations". The idea is one of several being considered by the chancellor and his Treasury, according to the Financial Times .

Conversations in the White House and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office are increasingly focused on two finalists: Amy Coney Barrett, who was at the White House on Monday, and Barbara Lagoa, according to a person granted anonymity to discuss the private deliberations. Even before the report was released, the Biden campaign issued a detailed statement aiming to rebut point-by-point allegations that it said had always been debunked by media organizations as well as by US and Ukrainian officials.

The 87-page report called the younger Biden's role at a company suspected of corruption "awkward" and "problematic" at a time when the United States was trying to help clean up Ukraine.

"Hell with party politics, hell with any other influence or implicit, at the end of the day it's about real people, real life, American citizens who want to be a part of it", said Desmond Maid, the group's executive director. Although the story has embarrassed Biden and his camp, prosecutors in Ukraine have concluded no laws were broken.

"The Senate investigation's explosive new revelations about the Biden family profiting from Russia, China and other foreign sources while Joe Biden was vice president amount to stunning levels of corruption and breathtaking breaches of America's national security".

The news is a blow to doctors who've looked to the vaccine as U.S.'s best chance of getting the pandemic under control, and highlights the risks of politicizing healthcare.

"This is a good-government oversight investigation that relies on documents and testimony from USA agencies and officials, not a Russian disinformation campaign, as our Democratic colleagues have falsely stated", the Republican report reads. The report's authors rejected those claims, and say the vast majority of their investigation is based on USA documents and interviews with witnesses.
