Biden Dismisses Concerns About Facing Future Prosecution Amid Trump’s Conviction


President Joe Biden isn’t worried about the possibility of facing prosecution if he were to be indicted for a crime.

Donald Trump was convicted on 34 felony charges, setting a new precedent for former presidents and raising concerns among Republicans about political prosecutions post-office. Trump has repeatedly claimed that Biden was involved with the prosecution against him.

During a White House event celebrating the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl win, Biden was asked about his thoughts on potentially being charged.

“Are you worried this could happen to you someday? Somebody comes up with some charges and tries to bring you into court after your term?” Peter Doocy, a Fox News reporter, asked Biden.

“Not at all. I didn’t do anything wrong,” Biden said. “The system still works.”

He was also asked about how the conviction could affect Trump’s polling, to which Biden said, “I have no idea.”

Some polls taken in the wake of the historic conviction suggest a small fraction of Republicans are rethinking their support for a felon.

When asked about Trump’s claims that Biden had involvement in the case, Biden reacted with a smile.

“I didn’t know I was that powerful,” Biden said.

In an earlier speech at the White House, Biden addressed Trump’s claims that the trial was “rigged.”

“It’s reckless, it’s dangerous, and it’s irresponsible for anyone to say this was rigged just because they don’t like the verdict,” he said.
