Former Sen. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) said in an interview with Christiane Amanpour on CNN today that he believes that “on important issues of American democracy,” former Vice President Joe Biden is “more conservative than the president is.”

Flake served six terms in the House of Representatives and the one in the Senate—that ended in January 2019. He did not seek a second term in the Senate.

Amanpour asked Flake: “What is the conservative case for Joe Biden?”

Flake responded: “Well, conservatives believe in preserving and conserving institutions. To preserve what we know works. And the institutions of American democracy are freedom of the press, for example, or separation of powers, independent judiciary. And the president has shown that he either little understands or little appreciates these institutions. So, I’m not pretending that Joe Biden is as conservative as I am on fiscal issues and what not, but on those important issues of American democracy, frankly, he’s more conservative than the president is.”  

Amanpour sent out a tweet that included a video of the exchange.
