Former vice president and 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden told Fox News that if called by the Senate to testify in President Trump’s impeachment trial, he would not voluntarily appear.
“The White House is now saying that if there is a Senate impeachment trial they might like to call you as a witness. Is that something where you would appear voluntarily?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked Biden as he continued his “No Malarkey” campaign tour, making a stop in Iowa on the first day of the public House Judiciary Committee hearing back in Washington, D.C.
“No, I’m not going to let them take their eye off the ball,” Joe Biden said. “The president is the one who has committed impeachable crimes, and I’m not going to let him divert from that and I’m not going to let anyone divert from that.”
Here’s the video:

Joe admitted to doing what Trump has been accused of, and what Trump has been accused of is what Joe says is “impeachable.” So Joe admits he should have been impeached while VPOTUS.

Wow! What arrogance, it’s unreal. This guy is nuts. This insanity has to end. Biden boldly brags out loud a threat to withhold 1 billion dollars aid to Ukraine until they fire the prosecutor looking @ his son on video & Potus is accused of impeachable crimes?! Na, not buying it

so Biden thinks Trump should agree with everything the Dems want or it’s obstruction of justice, but it’s not if he doesn’t want to.

Biden is toast now . If he thinks Impeachment can go on without dragging him through the mud he’s in denial.
