On Tuesday, the House of Representatives filed Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump. It’s expected to be heading to the Senate soon, where things could get really hairy for Democrats and their front-runner Joe Biden.
When Biden was asked by reporters whether or not he’d comply with a subpoena by the Senate, he made it clear that he would not. The question comes about as Biden may be called to the stand over conflicts of interest, as he was the vice president and his son, Hunter, sat on the board of Burisma Holdings, a controversial Ukrainian company.
“No, I’m not going to let you take the eye off the ball here. Everybody knows what this is about,” Biden said, according to Breitbart. “This is a Trump gambit he plays. Whenever he’s in trouble he tries to find someone else to divert attention to.”
When pressed about it, Biden didn’t budge, stating that there wasn’t “one scintilla of evidence” he did anything wrong.
“No, I will not yield to what everybody is looking for here,” he said. “And that is to take the eye off the ball.”
The House is expected to vote on the impeachment articles next week.
Sen. Ted Cruz said that the Senate impeachment trial will be significantly different from how the House — led by Reps. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff — handled the situation.
“We will have a trial in the Senate unlike the House, where there was no due process and no fairness,” Cruz told Glenn Beck on TheBlaze. “I believe [the trial in] the Senate will be much more fair.”
“We’re going to allow the White House and the president to present their defense,” Cruz added. “I believe that means if the president wants to call witnesses, the president should be able to call witnesses. If the president wants to call Hunter Biden or the whistleblower — whomever the president wants to call.”
