After his statement exploded, Biden "clarified" that he WOULD comply with any Senate subpoena, but he would call them out on their bullsh%$:
The shadow of impeachment clouded Joe Biden's trip through eastern Iowa on Saturday after the former vice president confirmed he would defy a congressional subpoena if he didn't believe there was a legal rationale behind it.Seriously, Biden basically sold the entire impeachment effort down the river, and when it blew up, he "Clarified."
Biden told the Des Moines Register's editorial board Friday he would not comply with a Senate subpoena during President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate. It confirmed a statement he made in an interview with NPR earlier in the month.
He began the day Saturday clarifying those remarks on Twitter before making appearances in Tipton, Washington and Fairfield.
"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," Biden tweeted. "But I am just not going to pretend that there is any legal basis for Republican subpoenas for my testimony in the impeachment trial."
This is, for a lack of a better term, pure malarkey.
