During a town hall on CNN last night, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former VP Joe Biden blasted Republican calls for his son, Hunter Biden, to testify as a witness in the impeachment probe by saying there is no reason for Hunter to testify and “This is all a diversion.”
Joe Biden: “There is zero rationale for that to happen. Nobody has suggested anything was done that was inappropriate. This is all a diversion. This is classic Trump.”

BURNETT: So, Vice President Biden, the House Republicans have been — have asked to call many of their own witnesses, as you know, in the impeachment hearing, right, in the probe. They’ve put forth their list. Your son, Hunter, is on it. They want to — they want to hear from him. What’s your response to those Republicans who say that Hunter should speak to the country?
BIDEN: There is zero rationale for that to happen. Nobody has suggested anything was done that was inappropriate. This is all a diversion. This is classic Trump, classic Trump. Focus on the problem. We have a president who has — is one of the most corrupt people to serve in that office.
Look, I’ve — you know, what Biden do? I released 21 years of my tax returns in detail. Mr. President, you’re worried about corruption? Release some of yours. Release some of yours.
This is — and by the way, those — and, look, I’m going to sound — but you’re a really talented reporter and you follow things very closely. And you’ve been in many of these places we’re talking about, physically you’ve been — I remember when you were in Egypt reported, et cetera.
This is Trump’s modus operandi, whenever it happens, whenever anything comes down — what’s he do? He tries to find a scapegoat to avoid focus on him. That’s what this is all about. And I’ll be darned if I’m going to let us take our eye off the ball. Did Trump commit impeachable offenses? He’s indicted himself on the White House lawn saying he did invite these people. And by the way, if — and he said he wants to deal with corruption. That’s what it’s all about. Well, Mr. President, release your tax returns. Show us what you’ve done.
