Video of the Day: Joe Biden pounds table, tells Des Moines Register he WILL NOT comply with subpoena in Senate trial

Democrat front-runner Joe Biden spoke with the editorial board of the Des Moines Register and told them he would not comply were he given a subpoena to appear in a Senate trial.

Here’s video:

Here’s a transcript as provided by the Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor:

Carol Hunter: “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?”

Joe Biden: “Correct. And the reason I wouldn’t, um, 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. 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 but my job. Everyone of the people who sworn testimony worked for him said, “Biden did his job and he did it well.” This is all about a diversion. And we play his game all the time, he’s done it his whole career, he’s done it his whole career. And, um, I’m very proud of the job I did. I never, never, never, uh, moved off of dealing with corruption there. Every single person thought that prosecutor general should be fired from the IMF to all our European partners and the people in the administration. But this is a technique he uses all the time. He’s a chronic liar.”

Carol Hunter: “Doesn’t that position you as if you’re defying a subpoena, def–putting yourself above the law?”

Joe Biden: “Well, uh, look, the grounds for them to call me would be overwhelmingly specious, but so, I don’t anticipate that happening anyway. But what it would do, if I went, let’s say I voluntarily just said let, “let me go make my case”. What are you gonna cover? You guys instead of focusing on him, you gonna cover for three weeks anything I said and he’s gonna get away. (Stage whisper) You guys buy into it all the time. Not a joke, think about it. As we say in my church, “examine your conscience”. 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.”

Is it just us or is there something a bit, well, creepy, about his presentation, especially at the end when he pounds the table with his fingers?

Taylor noted:  “Interesting similarity between the Trump-obsessed Biden and the stone faced reaction by the Register board and Captain Queeg and the board of inquiry in the Caine Mutiny.”

Hmmm…  Maybe she’s on to something.

Biden later issued a clarification:

Sounds like obstruction to us…

Update: Biden has since said he will comply with legal subpoenas to testify:
