Dems impeached Trump for defying subpoenas, now Biden says he won’t comply with one either

Former Vice President Joe Biden said in an interview on Friday that he would not comply with a subpoena if the Senate were to call him to testify in President Trump’s impeachment trial.

“What are you going to cover?” Biden responded to Des Moines Register Executive Editor Carol Hunter when she asked him if he would be willing to appear before Congress. “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 … 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 added that any attempt to subpoena him would be on “specious” grounds and that he does not believe the Senate will compel him to testify, according to the Register. The Democratic candidate also said that him appearing before the Senate would be part of a candidate to “take the focus off” of Trump.

Wasn’t Trump just impeached for this?

Should Biden refuse to comply with a Senate subpoena, it would place Democrats in a politically awkward situation and undermine their impeachment case since the former vice president would be engaging in conduct that is similar to the activities detailed in one of the House’s charges against Trump.

Democrats levied two articles of impeachment against President Trump:

The first charge declared that Trump abused his power by tying foreign aid to Ukraine in exchange for the country’s president announcing an investigation into a company on which Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, served on the board.

The second article of impeachment accused the president of “Obstruction of Congress,” which included directing the “Executive Branch agencies, offices, and officials not to comply with those subpoenas.” The Democrats said that by instructing others to defy a congressional subpoena, President Trump “interposed the powers of the Presidency against the lawful subpoenas of the House of Representatives.”

Democrats said defying a subpoena disqualified Trump from presidency

According to the House Democrats’s charges, Trump’s defiance of subpoenas merited his “impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”

House and Senate leaders are negotiating the terms of an impeachment trial. Biden has not been subpoenaed, but some of Trump’s allies have suggested he should be.

  2. President Donald J. Trump was impeached for being a Republican and a successful President! Joe (The Groper) Biden will not be impeached for defying subpoenas because he is a Democrat and will never be President!

  3. Joe Biden’s refusal is defiance. I can understand the president’s right of refusal, but not an ordinary citizen. Even though he is a candidate, with him, now, national issues are not at stake. Subpoenas on the President, by congress, was obstruction of the president’s job, as he was and is dealing with many national and international issues. There wouldn’t be an issue at all, if Joe Biden and his son had been investigated for the alleged money laundering, that had occurred, in Ukraine, but was covered up. Reports of liberal “George Soros with OCCRP joining in with Buzz Feed News to create ads regarding the “Russian Collusion Hoax.” Also, George Soros and Fusion paid someone to create false news about President Trump. But rumors about Hunter Biden have come from the Ukraine, Prosecutor General, who was investigating the Biden’s possible money laundering. Reports say he was poisoned, then revived, retaining medical records as verification. It was then that Obama’s administration threatened the withholding of funds to Ukraine. Honest hearings would have revealed that.

  4. all democrat politicians and their supporters need to be hung on the Mexican side of the fence and feed buzzards!
