He just made a big mistake.
According to The Daily Wire, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden tried to walk back comments that he made previously when he declared that he would not comply with a Senate subpoena in President Donald Trump’s impeachment trial, which involves alleged Biden corruption in Ukraine.
Biden made the remarks during an interview with The Des Moines Register when he was asked, “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?”
“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 responded. “The issue is not what I did, not a single person, not one single person, even that thug Giuliani and his compatriots, have said I did anything other than my job.”
Biden later tried to walk back his comments in a series of tweets, which added confusion to his stance on the matter, as he did not definitively say whether or not he would comply with a subpoena.
“I want to clarify something I said yesterday,” Biden wrote on Twitter. “In my 40 years in public life, 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.”
