Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), a 2020 White House hopeful, said on Sunday that's he’s “offended” that Republicans are shifting attention to fellow Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden as President Trump faces an impeachment inquiry.
“Joe Biden is a statesman. He is truly an honorable man,” Booker said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“I will be standing firmly in defense of Joe Biden throughout this process because this can in no way besmirch his character, his honor and his incredible service to this country over decades,” Booker added.
“I am offended by the Republicans trying to shift the attention in this, in what is Trump’s scandal. This is a Trump scandal and potential violation of office,” Booker said on Sunday. "It should in no way effect the vice president in pursuit of the nomination.”
