During an interview on Sunday with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News, Republican Senator Ted Cruz spoke out about the ongoing impeachment drama surrounding Senate Republicans and House Democrats.
The Texas Senator defended President Trump, saying that he should be allowed to call in any witness he chooses to defend himself from the allegations he is facing.
“If the president wants to call Hunter Biden, if the president wants to call the whistleblower due process mandates that we allow the president to defend himself, to make his case. So I think we should do so,” Cruz said.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is clearly feeling the heat considering more and more Senate Republicans like Cruz are calling on him and/or his son Hunter Biden to testify.
While speaking with reporters, Biden stated that he would defy subpoena’s from the Senate if he were called to testify.
On Friday, the former Vice President doubled down on his defiant behavior while speaking with the Des Moines Register’s editorial board.
“Do you stand by your earlier statements that you wouldn’t comply if you were subpoenaed to testify in an impeachment trial before the Senate,” one board member asked.
“Correct, and the reason I wouldn’t is because it’s all designed to deal with Trump doing what he’s done his whole life, trying to take the focus off him,” Biden stated.
“Doesn’t that position you as if you’re defying a subpoena, putting yourself above the law?” the Register asked.
“Well, look, the grounds for them to call me would be overwhelmingly specious, so I don’t anticipate that happening anyway,” he replied. “But what it would do if I voluntarily just said let me go and make my case. What are you going to cover? You guys are going to cover for three weeks anything that I said. And he’s going to get away. You guys buy into it all the time. Not a joke … Doesn’t mean I shouldn’t testify if you thought I should, but 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.”
