BREAKING- Joe Biden Vow Not To Comply With Subpoena,
If Republicans Subpoena Joe Biden himself to testify in President Trump’s impeachment trial, he may not show up.
Following Fox News reports, former Vice President Joe Biden said Friday that he would not comply with a subpoena to testify in the Senate impeachment trial against President Trumpl, should one be issued to him.
Any testimony from the 2020 Democratic contender for the White House before the Senate would draw attention away from Trump’s alleged wrongdoing and would effectively let the president off the hook,
Biden claimed in an interview with the editorial board of the De Moines Register in Iowa.
“What are you going to cover?” Biden said to Register Executive Editor Carol Hunter in response to a question about the possibility of his participation in the trial.
“You guys are going to cover for three weeks anything that I said. And (Trump’s) going to get away.”
“You guys buy into it all the time. Not a joke …” he added. “Think what it’s about. It’s all about what he does all the time, his entire career.
Take the focus off. This guy violated the Constitution. He said it in the driveway of the White House. He acknowledged he asked for help.”
Biden may want to avoid embarrassing questions about what he knew about his son Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine.
MORE ON JOE BIDEN NOT COMPLYING WITH SUBPOENA
Politico reports Joe Biden’s campaign sought to “clarify” his statement that he would refuse a Senate subpoena in President Donald Trump’s
impeachment trial by saying Saturday that the former vice president has a history of complying with any “lawful order.”
But Biden stopped short of saying clearly that he would honor such a Senate order if it came, and said he will not “pretend there is any legal
basis” for a subpoena thereby laying the foundation to potentially argue that a Senate subpoena in Trump’s trial wouldn’t be one of those lawful orders.
Asked to clarify the statement further, Biden’s campaign referred back to his Saturday statements on Twitter and his remarks Friday to
the Des Moines Register in which he said he wouldn’t comply with a subpoena if it came.
