A GOP lawmaker said as the nation’s top diplomat, the president has broad discretion regarding his conversations with foreign leaders.

Representative Scott Perry said Saturday, reports focus on the president’s effort to curb alleged corruption, not the alleged corruption itself.

He adds, with congressional oversight and aides on the line, he doesn’t believe the president would act inappropriately.

However, the Pennsylvania lawmaker said there’s at least “smoke” when it comes to accusations of self-dealing involving the Bidens that warrant a further look.

He even said Ukraine was offering the U.S. information about the incident during the prior administration, but wasn’t accepted.
