Biden won’t voluntarily testify in Trump’s impeachment trial. Here’s what that means

Published

on

Experts who spoke with Salon had mixed views about a statement by former Vice President Joe Biden, in which he revealed that he does not plan to voluntarily attend the impeachment trial likely awaiting President Donald Trump in the Senate.
