Democrats have been railing against President Donald Trump’s decision to refuse to honor impeachment-related subpoenas and taking their bullying up to the courts.
Yet, on Friday, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden reaffirmed that if a Senate subpoena is issued, he will not honor it and will refuse to testify in the impeachment trial.
It’s not “relevant”
Joe Biden says his case is not relevant to the Donald Trump impeachment, but he could not be more wrong.
Trump is being impeached for allegedly abusing his power to ask a foreign government to investigate corruption directly related to Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
As such, Republicans have every right to dig into this issue, as the alleged corruption surrounding the Bidens is at the heart of the entire impeachment inquiry.
Everyone has accused Trump of putting himself above the law, which is what Biden would be doing if he defies a subpoena. When Biden was asked that exact question, his defense was paper-thin.
Biden said that he doesn’t want to testify to make his case because the media would be covering him and not Trump.
Biden told the press on Friday that “the reason I wouldn’t is because it’s all designed to deal with Trump doing what he’s done his whole life, trying to take the focus off him.”
Biden claims the real issue here is that Donald Trump violated the Constitution. We, of course, are still waiting for the evidence proving this claim to be produced.
What we do know, however, is that there is a very strong possibility that Joe Biden did that and more by flexing muscle that financially benefitted his son.
Biden brushed off the questions, stating that “the grounds for them to call me would be overwhelmingly specious,” and that if he chooses voluntarily to testify, the media will allow Trump to “get away.”
Never mind the fact that the media has done the exact opposite. Ever since Trump stepped into office, the coverage has been overwhelmingly negative, but when Biden himself literally brags about using his leverage as Vice President to apparently benefit his son, the media is silent.
