"No, I wouldn't," she said. "And I can promise you right now by own daughter, who is only 24, does not sit on the board of a foreign company." 

But the senator quickly shifted back to focus on Trump's alleged wrongdoing and stood by Biden in defending him against the unfounded allegations by the Trump campaign. 

"There is no evidence that ... the vice president did something wrong here," she said. "What really matters is that the president was repeatedly trying to get dirt on a political opponent. That is the issue here."

Trump is facing an impeachment inquiry over allegations of asking Ukraine to investigate Biden.
