Joe Biden calls for Trump to be impeached – Fmr US Vice President Trump “has indicted himself”

 

 ON:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said for the first time Wednesday that President Trump should be impeached — and that the commander in chief “has indicted himself” and believes the entire US government can be used for his own political and personal needs.

“With his words and his actions, President Trump has indicted himself by obstructing justice, refusing to comply with the congressional inquiry. He’s also convicted himself in full view of the world and the American people,” the 2020 Democratic candidate said during a campaign speech in Rochester, New Hampshire.

“Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts. To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached,” he said to loud applause.

Biden, whom Trump has accused of “corruption” and demeaned as “Sleepy Joe,” then said what Trump could do if left in office was concerning.

“Impeachment isn’t only about what the president’s done. It’s about the threat the president poses to the nation if allowed to remain in office,” he said.

“One thing about this president is absolutely clear and I don’t think anyone can contradict this, he has seen no limits to his power regardless of what the Constitution says. He believes the entire United States government can be corrupted into furthering his personal political needs,” Biden said.

House Democrats launched impeachment proceedings against Trump after it was revealed that he asked Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son Hunter for Hunter’s role as a board member of a Ukrainian natural gas giant.

Trump responded to Biden within minutes on Twitter.

“So pathetic to see Sleepy Joe Biden, who with his son, Hunter, and to the detriment of the American Taxpayer, has ripped off at least two countries for millions of dollars, calling for my impeachment – and I did nothing wrong. Joe’s Failing Campaign gave him no other choice!” he tweeted.

There is no known evidence that either Biden did anything wrong in either Ukraine or China or elsewhere.
