Joe Biden says he will not comply if he is subpoenaed by the Senate to testify in the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

Biden told NPR in a Monday interview that he would not cooperate if subpoenaed.

Biden said, "No, I’m not going to let you take the eye off the ball here. Everybody knows what this is about. This is a Trump gambit he plays. Whenever he’s in trouble he tries to find someone else to divert attention to."

After being pushed on the issue, Biden said, "No, I will not yield to what everybody is looking for here. And that is to take the eye off the ball."

He added that there was not "one scintilla of evidence" he did anything wrong.
