Biden calls for Trump Impeachment
Biden said in a speech in New Hampshire, Wednesday, that "To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached,"

Biden said Trump "has indicted himself by obstructing justice, refusing to comply with the congressional inquiry, he's already convicted himself. In full view of the world and the American people, Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts."

"He's shooting holes in the Constitution," Biden said. "And we cannot let him get away with it."

"Trump will do anything to get re-elected, including violating the most basic forms of democracy. It's stunning, and it's dangerous," Biden said. He added, "No president in history has dared to engage in such unimaginable behavior."

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.

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 over Hunter’s role as a board member of a Ukrainian natural gas company.
