Biden 2008: Promises to pursue Bush Administration crimes: "No AG or President is above the law".

Deerfield Florida, October 2, 2008

QUESTION: I'd like to know if you guys are going to pursue the violations that have been made against our Constitution by the present administration and restore the Constitution to its rightful place in our society?

BIDEN: Yes ...

We will not be estopped from pursuing any criminal offense that's occurred ...

(The Judiciary Committees) .... will go through it with a fine- tooth comb.

(Any criminal violations) ... will be pursued ... out of the need to preserve the notion that no one -- no one -- no attorney general, no president, no one is above the law. (Applause).

Answer in full:

BIDEN: Yes. (Applause.) Now, look, here's the deal. My colleagues can tell you, particularly Henry Waxman, one of the things that happens is -- you know, there's a phrase in the law, those of you who are lawyers. Sometimes you're estopped from being able to present something, meaning your failing to have acted in the past precludes you having the right to act in the future. We will not be estopped from pursuing any criminal offense that's occurred. Now, here's what's happening: Patrick Leahy in the Judiciary Committee and Henry Waxman from California, in his oversight committee, as well as John Conyers in his Judiciary Committee, what they're doing is they're doing the right thing. They're not making false accusations about anything. They're not making unfounded accusations. They're collecting data. They are subpoenaing records. They're building the file, and they're going through it and will go through it with a fine- tooth comb. If there has been a basis upon which you could pursue someone for a criminal violation, they will be pursued -- not out of vengeance, not out of retribution; out of the need to preserve the notion that no one -- no one -- no attorney general, no president, no one is above the law. (Applause).
