'Impeachment is about Trump’s conduct, not mine': Biden expands on subpoena remarks
"The subpoenas should go to witnesses with testimony to offer to Trump’s shaking down the Ukraine government," former Vice President Joe Biden said.
Former vice president and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden looked to clarify his remarks about complying with congressionally issued subpoenas in a series of tweets on Saturday morning.
Biden said he cooperated with all "legitimate congressional oversight requests" in his 40 years in pubic life but argued there was no "legal basis for Republican subpoenas for my testimony in the impeachment trial."
"The subpoenas should go to witnesses with testimony to offer to Trump’s shaking down the Ukraine government — they should go to the White House," Biden added.
During a Friday interview with the Des Moines Register's editorial board, Biden said he would not comply with a Senate subpoena during President Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate.
