Biden: Trump Is Using Michael Flynn Case to Divert Attention From His Coronavirus Response

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is expressing his belief President Donald Trump is using former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to distract the American people from his coronavirus response efforts.

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos asked Biden if he knew about the investigation into Flynn and whether “anything improper” was done.

Biden explained he knew nothing about the moves to investigate Flynn — which he later added that he was “aware that they asked for an investigation” — and how this is just another matter Trump is using to distract from his plan to combat the coronavirus outbreak.

“I know nothing about those moves to investigate Michael Flynn number one. Number two, this is all about diversion,” Biden said.

He continued, “This is a game this guy plays all the time. The country is in crisis. We’re in an economic crisis, a health crisis, we’re in real trouble. He should stop trying to always divert from the real concerns of the American people.”

Watch his comments below:

The Department of Justice announced last week it was moving to drop its prosecution of Flynn, as IJR previously reported.

Flynn had previously plead guilty to lying to the FBI, but sought to withdraw his plea earlier this year.

Attorney General William Barr opened up about the decision shortly after the DOJ made the announcement, as IJR previously reported. He said it was his “duty” to drop the prosecution against Flynn.

Biden reiterated Trump should be focusing on implementing a national plan to combat the coronavirus rather than the Flynn case.

“Think about this, can you imagine any other president of the United States focusing on this at the moment when the country is just absolutely concerned about their health, the health of their children, the health of their families,” Biden said.

He continued, “We have an economic crisis, we have a health crisis. This is all about diverting attention. Focus on what is in front of us. Get us out of this Mr. President.”

Responses

  1. Biden has no plan. All he can do is bash Trump.

    Once all the information on the Flynn case is available, it’ll be clear that Hillary colluded with Russia to destroy the Trump campaign, and that Obama orchestrated the whole thing. And I believe many more crimes of the Left will come to light. The only question will be, “Will any of them be prosecuted, serve jail time, or have a significant portion of their net worth (ill gotten gains) taken from them?”

    And why did they do that (aside from the fact that it made them wealthier)?

    Remember, Obama wanted to fundamentally transform America. But there’s nothing wrong with America’s fundamentals. So what did he want to transform America into? A country where the government has all the power and the people have none. A country where the rule of law is whatever the guy in charge says it is. In other words, a totalitarian country, just like the others that have caused so much poverty and death. And Obama thought he could put Hillary into the presidency and continue his transformation of America through her.

    No, they don’t care about the people no matter how much they tell you they do. That’s why Hillary could tell us all we’re deplorables.

    If Biden were to win the election, he would definitely be a puppet.

  2. Since he can’t multi-task, he believes President Trump can’t either? LOL
    President Trump has been a successful businessman. Biden has only been a politician, and not a very successful one at that.

  3. The dem/leftists started the “Flynn Case” and are the reason the “Flynn Case” exists.
    And you dem/leftist used Russia, Russia, Russia and Ukraine phone call as a way to try to destroy Trump and to DISTRACT AND COVER UP your corruption. AND THAT’S A FACT CREEPY JOE.

  4. THE ABSOLUTE ASS HOLE trumpuke has proved that he is an complete failure in the coronavirus response so falling back to stock craven corruption is the only card he has to play.

    1. John, About all I’ve seen you post is attacks and name-calling but no proof.
