Biden's comments come after recent reporting that Democrats have outlined a list of key investigations they plan to launch if they take back the House from Trump's taxes, ties to Russian Federation and the administration's handling of security clearances.

Biden was speaking to "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell in an interview to be aired Thursday.

"I hope they don't". "I think it's totally appropriate for people to look at me and say if I were to run for office again, 'Well God darn you're old.' Well chronologically I am old". "My doubts are that there's very little sense of rule of law, respect for human rights, dignity", Biden said.

"I just don't know why this administration seems to feel the need to coddle autocrats and dictators from Putin to Kim Jong Un to, you know, Duterte", Biden said.

"I've been around a long time", he continued. You don't put an arbitrary end to it. "Let's see where the investigation takes us".
