For the first time, Joe Biden has publicly called for President Trump’s impeachment. The Democratic front-runner made these remarks in a speech in Rochester, New Hampshire to a big round of applauce. He said that Trump was “shooting holes in the Constitution And we cannot let him get away with it.” Here’s part of his speech:
“President 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… To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity he should be impeached.”
With his words and with his actions, President Trump has indicted himself.— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) October 9, 2019
He should be impeached.
Trump reacted almost immediately, tweeting that he “did nothing wrong.”
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 9, 2019
With his new aggressiveness, Biden appears to acknowledge that he needs to step up his attacks on the president to combat his dip in Democratic voter polls.
Joe Biden on Trump for urging foreign countries to investigate his political opponents: "It's wrong. It's the very thing Washington warned about. It undermines our electoral process. It's un-American … The ballot box is sacred ground in America."— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) October 9, 2019
