You don't always hear a lot about Vice President Mike Pence, especially during this season since everyone is consumed with the election. But one thing is for certain, he is definitely against Joe Biden.
Pence, like every other reasonable American, wants Biden thoroughly investigated for corruption in light of all the scandal that surrounds him, his son, and the Obama administration.
Pence was asked by Breitbart to respond to a tweet from President Trump where he shared an upcoming book Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elites by Peter Schweizer.
This particular book is set to expose much more about Biden than has been previously known, connecting several more family members of the former vice president beyond his son Hunter Biden to the web of corruption. The book will expose “the Biden Five,” as Breitbart News has previously reported and Schweizer has written in an op-ed for the New York Post on the matter this weekend.
This was his response, “I’d say a couple things. The American people have a right to know. This president has said we’re going to drain the swamp. Joe Biden has been a part of the Washington establishment for decades. As he’s campaigning for the highest office in the land, the American people have the right not only to ask the questions but to get answers.”

He was also asked if he thought Hunter Biden should be called to testify in the impeachment trial. Pence said that this is a decision that's better left up to Senators, but he did mention that the request by the Democrats for witnesses is a sign of a weak case on their part.
“But obviously, completely separate from that, when it comes to the Senate trial, it’ll be for the senators to decide, but I think the fact that you hear people talking about witnesses in the Senate just proves how weak the case underpinning the Articles of Impeachment really is. The fact that we’ve heard they had an open-and-shut case, that despite the fact the American people can read the transcript, see the fact the president did nothing wrong, no quid pro quo, the military aid was released. The American people have the facts. We heard that Congress did what the facts demanded, and now suddenly we hear Democrats saying they need more facts and they need more witnesses. My view on this is the American people see through all of this—the sham investigation followed by a partisan impeachment. They’re saying ‘enough is enough.’”
It's still unknown whether there will be witnesses in the trial or not, but as of right now I would think probably not, but I could be wrong.
