During Saturday's Steak Fry at the Iowa State Fair, former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at Fox News' Peter Doocy for not "asking the right question."

The Fox News reporter asked Biden about a whistleblower's claims that President Donald Trump repeatedly pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Hunter Biden, who sits on the board of directors of a Ukrainian gas company. The claims came from a whistleblower,

"Here's what I know. I know Trump deserves to be investigated. He is violating every basic norm of a president. You should be asking him the question. Why is he on the phone with a foreign leader, trying to intimidate a foreign leader, if that's what happened? It appears that's what happened," Biden told Doocy. "You should be looking at Trump."

"Trump is doing this because he knows I'll beat him like a drum and he's using the abuses of power and every element of the presidency to try and smear me. Everybody's looked at it and said nothing is there," Biden told other reporters and cameras.

"Ask the right question," Biden told Doocy.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday called on the Department of Justice to investigate Vice President Biden's connections to Ukraine. He said he believes a thorough investigation should take place, seeing as how the Democrats treated Preside Donald Trump and the Russia probe.
