According to Democrats, threatening to defy a subpoena — or telling others to defy a subpoena — is an “impeachable offense.”
In fact, that just so happen to what one of the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump was regarding — that pesky “Obstruction of Congress” charge.
In that impeachment article, Democrats claimed that Trump directed “Executive Branch agencies, offices, and officials not to comply with those subpoenas.” According to TheBlaze, Democrats said that Trump “interposed the powers of the Presidency against the lawful subpoenas of the House of Representatives,” causing him to commit a violation worth of impeachment.
Now, tell me, is that not exactly what Democratic front-runner Joe Biden did on Monday? You know, when he said he would defy any subpoena placed on him by the Senate?
And, wouldn’t the only difference between Trump and Biden be that the former vice president threatened that he himself would not comply, not just telling others around him not to?
Well, it looks like the Democrat’s top presidential candidate just shot himself, the party, and the impeachment process in the foot. If Democrats believe that the “Obstruction of Congress” impeachment article is as serious as they say, then why aren’t Democrats infuriated over Biden’s comments promising to defy a subpoena?
That’s a double standard if I’ve ever seen one.
Here’s what Biden told Des Moines Register Executive Editor Carol Hunter in a sit-down meeting, right after he claimed he would not comply with a subpoena:
“What are you going to cover? 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 … 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.”
Biden later tried to walk back his defiant remarks, saying he would follow the law — but, unfortunately, the damage was done.
An impeachable offense, based on the standards of Democrats, was committed by the Democratic front-runner for president.
