Joe Biden Says He Will Refuse To Comply With A Senate Subpoena In Impeachment Trial (VIDEO)

Joe Biden said during a recent interview that he will not comply with an official order for him to testify if and when impeachment goes to the Senate.

Isn’t this the sort of dangerous shredding of norms that the media is always accusing Trump of doing? Will there be any outrage from the left over the fact that Biden is obstructing justice?

The Des Moines Register reports:

Biden says he would not comply with a Senate subpoena in the impeachment trial of President Trump

Former Vice President Joe Biden confirmed Friday he would not comply with a subpoena to testify in a Senate trial of President Donald Trump.

The Democratically controlled U.S. House of Representatives impeached Trump earlier this month alleging Trump abused his presidential power by tying foreign aid approved by Congress to a politically motivated investigation into a company on which Biden’s son Hunter Biden served on the board.

Leaders in the House and Republican leaders in the GOP-controlled U.S. Senate are trying to come to terms for an impeachment trial.

Biden said in early December he wouldn’t comply with a subpoena by the Senate, and confirmed that statement Friday in an interview with the Des Moines Register’s editorial board. He has not been subpoenaed, but Trump’s allies have floated the idea.

Testifying before the Senate on the matter would take attention away from Trump and the allegations against him, Biden said. Not even “that thug” Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney and former New York City mayor, has accused Biden of doing anything but his job, the former vice president said.

Biden also said any attempt to subpoena him would be on “specious” grounds, and he predicted it wouldn’t come to that.

Biden knows this is a disaster for him.

He gives it away every time he is asked about it.
