Pete Buttigieg critiques fellow candidate Joe Biden's 'judgment' on Iraq War vote


Biden went on to say, "Whoever I would pick for vice president, and there's a lot of qualified women, there's a lot of qualified African-Americans". "I will not contribute to the notion that there's any legitimacy to the notion of calling me as a witness".

"Does anybody think that you're going to be able to stay in the middle class in the '20s and '30s of the 21st century without better education?" But I'm not suggesting that on anything other than, there is no rational basis for me being called in an impeachment investigation.

Mr Biden has premised much of his presidential bid on appealing to moderate Democrats, independents and Republicans who have been alienated by President Donald Trump. The 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses will take place on February 3, 2020, making it the first nominating contest for the Democratic Party in choosing their presidential candidate to face Donald Trump in the 2020 election. During that interview, he reiterated his previous statements that he would not comply with an order to testify.

The former vice president on Saturday sought to clarify the comments he made on Friday when he told the Des Moine Register's editorial board that the grounds to call him were "specious" and said the focus needed to stay on Trump.

"The answer is yes", Biden replied.

Biden, asked about Sanders' claim that President Donald Trump "will eat (Biden's) lunch", had a quick response: "Tell him come and I'll give him some dessert at the White House".

Wall St. ends at record high amid trade optimism
Tokyo's Nikkei 225 lost 0.2% to 23,792.34 while the Shanghai Composite Index was up less than 1 off 2 points at 2,983.13. The Nasdaq rose 0.7% Thursday and has gained more than 35%, putting it on track to make 2019 its best year since 2013.

There has not been a modern presidential campaign featuring a bipartisan ticket. Those articles have not yet been sent to the U.S. Senate, as Pelosi continues to insist she wants an outline of what the Senate trial will look like before she sends them on.

Biden said that while he couldn't think of a specific Republican off the top of his head, he stated that there are "some really decent Republicans" but the more "well-known" members of the GOP need to "step up". Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., told reporters on Capitol Hill earlier this month.

The Biden campaign often touts the former vice president's "electability" in part because of his friendships with Republican lawmakers and his more conservative policy positions in comparison to primary rivals Sens.

After declaring he would refuse to adjust to a subpoena in President Trump's impeachment trial, Joe Biden backtracked and stated he would testify if hauled earlier than Senate lawmakers.

Biden then elaborated on what he meant.

"This is an example of why years in Washington is not always the same thing as judgment", Buttigieg said while recording the program "Iowa Press" on Iowa Public Television, according to a transcript.
