On Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would refuse to comply with a subpoena to testify in court for the Senate impeachment trial against the president.
"What are you going to cover?” Biden asked Register Executive Editor Carol Hunter “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 continued. "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.”
Fox News reports:
The Democrat-controlled House impeached Trump earlier this month for "abuse of power" and "obstruction of Congress" related to his dealings with Ukraine. But House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has yet to deliver the articles of impeachment to the Senate.
Democrats have accused Trump of planning to withhold military aid from Ukraine until he could secure the promise of a public announcement from the country that it would investigate the business dealings there of Biden and his son Hunter Biden. Trump has denied that his July phone conversation with Ukraine's president involved any such quid pro quo.
Trump and the Republicans, meanwhile, have asserted that Biden and his son have largely escaped scrutiny for their past involvement in Ukraine, and have accused the American media of downplaying the Bidens' story.
"No one’s taken as much heat and as many lies thrown at them as I have," Biden said last week, “but again, this is not about me. It’s not about my family. It’s about the nation. And we have to reach out and unify this country."
Biden said any attempts to subpoena him would be on “specious” grounds, adding that he expected it wouldn't happen.
Really? He truly believes that he has had “heat” and “lies” thrown at him in more abundance than anyone else? Ha! Look at our president! Trump and his family have been the focal point of false accusations and hatred and lies since Trump announced that he was running for president!
