Biden Rules out Testifying in Impeachment Hearings

Former Vice President Joe Biden ruled out the possibility that he would testify in the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

When asked by reporters if he would testify, Biden made it clear that he has no intention of doing so.

“No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball. The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes. I’m not going to let him diverge from that.”

Watch his comments below:

Republican lawmakers have said they want Biden and his son, Hunter, to testify in the impeachment inquiry, citing concerns over possible corruption related to Hunter Biden’s position on the board of Burisma Holdings in Ukraine.

House Democrats have rejected their Republican colleagues’ requests and refused to call the Bidens to testify.

However, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) recently signaled that he would be looking into the Bidens’ dealings in Ukraine. In November, Graham sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo requesting documents on Hunter Biden’s communications with the former Ukrainian president, as IJR has previously reported.

Graham defended his move in a tweet, alleging, “If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!”

“I love Joe Biden as a person, but we are not going to give a pass to what is obviously a conflict of interest. I believe Hunter Biden’s association on the Burisma board doesn’t pass the smell test. If a Republican was in the same position, they’d certainly be investigated!”

The elder Biden lashed out at Graham for his document request saying, “There’s nothing to investigate about Biden or his son, and Lindsey is about to go down in a way I think he’s going to regret his whole life.”

Senate Democrats voiced their disapproval with the idea of calling the Bidens to testify in the impeachment probe.
