'It could hurt Joe': Top ally says scrutiny of Biden and son Hunter's Ukraine dealings could 'blow up' campaign

  'It could hurt Joe': Top ally says scrutiny of Biden and son Hunter's Ukraine dealings could 'blow up' campaign Joe Biden's 2020 presidential campaign could be "blown up" by suspicions over he and his son Hunter's dealings with Ukraine, according to one of his top allies. "This whole thing could go two ways for him," said Ed Rendell, 75, a former Pennsylvania governor. "If Trump’s ads are significantly good, even if they’re all lies. It could hurt Joe. Voters get tired. Joe's popular point was that he could get back to normalcy, and that gets blown up if voters think he'll be bogged down with Republican investigations when he's in office.

Trump urged Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky to investigate the matter, prompting a whistleblower to file a complaint against him. Trump said "Biden and his son are stone cold crooked," during a Wednesday press conference.

President Trump seemingly cannot tell the truth — about anything. He slanders anyone he sees as a threat. That is why is he is frantically pushing flat-out lies, debunked conspiracy You won ’ t destroy me, and you won ’ t destroy my family . And come November 2020, I intend to beat you like a drum .

Op - ed . Democrats in Washington see the investigation differently. Trump has blasted Biden on Twitter over the photograph, but Biden has stuck to his guns, telling a crowd on Wednesday that he will not let Trump “ destroy my family .”

"President Trump seemingly cannot tell the truth — about anything," Biden continued. "He slanders anyone he sees as a threat ... It's the same cynical playbook he returns to again and again."

Biden, whose status as the frontrunner in the Democratic race has been challenged in recent weeks, has been at the center of a political storm since House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump last week. The probe centers around a July 25 phone call between Trump and newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which the American president asked his Ukrainian counterpart to look into whether Biden halted an investigation into Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings, where Biden's son Hunter once sat on the board.

Former Vice President Joe Biden went hard after Donald Trump on Wednesday, calling him out for “repeatedly The complaint said the call revealed Trump “pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals.” Because he knows I’ll beat him like a drum .

"There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that," Trump told Zelensky, according to a memorandum of the conversation released Sept. 25. "So whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me."

One of the major issues in the impeachment inquiry is whether Trump withheld $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, making its release conditional on the Kiev government investigating the Bidens.

The former vice president did not mention his son, Burisma Holdings or Ukraine in the op-ed. He did reference remarks Trump made Thursday on the South Lawn of the White House in which the president said China "should start an investigation into the Bidens because what happened with China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine."

Biden ads focus on early-voting states as he counters Trump

  Biden ads focus on early-voting states as he counters Trump Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is committing to $6 million worth of television and digital advertising in the first four states on the 2020 election-year calendar. It’s the latest demonstration of an increasingly aggressive campaign as he tries to hold his place as the party’s top challenger to President Donald Trump.The ad buy comes as the former vice president steps up his counter-attacks after disclosures about Trump’s effort to use the Ukrainian government to try to tarnish Biden, which has driven the Democratic-controlled House to undertake an impeachment inquiry.

"I’m sure that President Xi [Jinping] does not like being under that kind of scrutiny where billions of dollars is taken out of his country by a guy that just got kicked out of the Navy," said Trump, who was making an apparent reference to a 2013 trip by Joe Biden to Beijing on Air Force Two in which Hunter Biden tagged along. NBC News reported that Hunter Biden was attempting to start a big-money private equity fund, for which Chinese authorities issued a business license 10 days after the trip was over.

Joe Biden described those remarks as a "violation of the rule of law [that] is so outrageous, it's clear he considers the presidency a free pass to do whatever he wants, with no accountability."

“America’s word and our standing in the world are in free fall because of the actions and incompetence of this president,” added Biden, who also used the op-ed to hit Trump on key Democratic campaign issues gun control and climate change.

The piece concluded with a reprise of the "like a drum" refrain, which Biden used when addressing voters in Iowa last month.

“And to Trump and those who facilitate his abuses of power, and all the special interests funding his attacks against me: Please know that I’m not going anywhere," Biden said. "You won’t destroy me, and you won’t destroy my family. And come November 2020, I intend to beat you like a drum."

Has Elizabeth Warren broken the electability ceiling? .
A new Quinnipiac poll shows a big Warren lead despite Biden's electability edge.That assumption was always iffy. That electability and support go hand-in-hand means that as support for a candidate drops, so does the perception that the candidate can win the general election. The correlation between the two, in other words, means electability is often just a trailing indicator of primary support anyway.
