Biden clarifies previous statements about not testifying in Senate impeachment trial
The Hill ^ | 12 28 2019 | Rachel Frazin

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden on Saturday clarified a prior statement that he would not comply with a Senate subpoena in President Trump's impeachment trial, saying that the matter concerns "Trump’s conduct, not mine."

"I have always complied with a lawful order and in my eight years as VP, my office — unlike Donald Trump and Mike Pence — cooperated with legitimate congressional oversight requests," the former vice president said on Twitter.

"But I am just not going to pretend that there is any legal basis for Republican subpoenas for my testimony in the impeachment trial," he continued. "That is the point I was making yesterday and I reiterate: this impeachment is about Trump’s conduct, not mine."

Some subpoenas are more equal than others.

See article 2 of impeachment Obstruction of Congress where Democrats impeached Trump for not complying with congressional subpoenas.

In light of Biden’s remark, it isn’t an impeachable offense and should be summarily dismissed.

Comply with a subpoena or go to jail, Joe!

That’s the law.

Justice Roberts will decide if a Biden must testify.

Joe might be asked about the prosecutor firing discussed in the phone call.

“I see that you’ve cleverly avoided my actual question in favor of an imaginary one involving President Trump.”

Democrats are above the law. We knew that already.

What’s the hullabaloo about Trump’s alleged contempt for congressional subpoenas all about? See my post above.

And Biden hasn’t even taken a Senate subpoena to court! What a maroon.

...so I said to Joe, I said, I’m telling you, you’re not getting the billion dollars. I said, you’re not getting the billion. I’m going to be leaving here in, I think it was about six hours. I looked at Joe and said: I’m leaving in six hours. If you don’t testify in front of the Senate you’re not getting the money. Well, son of a bitch. (Laughter.) He he changed his story.

I predict, in the next months we’re about to see yet another underscore about how truly conservative the senate members are. Whether they have any spine or are bought totally.

Trump gets impeached for asking Ukraine a question he wasn’t supposed to ask in the first place.

But if its been debunked as we have heard repeatedly from the Democrat media, why did the Democrats spend three months on it?

Geez.

Right, he now doesn’t have to comply with the orders of the body he served in for 36 years and then as head of that body for an additional 8.

But God forbid anybody defied HIS orders when HE was in the Senate!

Typical oligarch. Rules for thee, but not for me.

I knew that he would feeeeeeel the need to walk his idiotic boast back, but that was more of a stagger. And it begs more questions than it answers.

What a dolt!

I suggest we’ll all be severely disappointed.

Democrat hypocrisy is up the wazoo. Trump is supposed to have complied but not Biden. Got it.
