Vance ― in an look on Sunday’s version of “Meet the Press” ― informed host Kristen Welker that media shops and Democrats have “lost their minds” over the quote from Trump, who vowed in June to nominate a particular prosecutor to analyze the Biden “crime family.”

“Donald Trump is talking about appointing a special prosecutor to investigate Joe Biden for wrongdoing,” stated Vance, who’s reportedly a possible working mate for the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.

“So if you think that what Donald Trump is proposing is a threat to democracy, isn’t what Biden has already done a massive threat to our system of law and government?”
