Joe Biden: Trump Is 'Shooting Holes in the Constitution’
2020 candidate calls for president's impeachment
2020 Democratic presidential hopeful and former Vice President Joe Biden called for President Donald Trump to be impeached during a town hall in Rochester, NH Wednesday.
Biden, who is already surrounded by controversy amid revelations of suspicious dealings his son, Hunter Biden, had with a Ukrainian energy company, seems to be trying to deflect the spotlight back onto Trump.
“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, Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts.”
“You know to preserve our constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity. He should be impeached," Biden said.
"That’s not only because of what he’s done. To answer whether he’s committed acts sufficient to warrant impeachment is obvious."
"We see it in Trump’s own words. We see it in the texts from state department officials that have been made public."
"We see it in his pulling much of the United States government into his corrupt schemes, individuals within the government, his appointees.
"But we have to remember that 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."
"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."
"He’s even willing to hold Congress and congressionally appropriated aid to a foreign nation hostage to his personal political demands. He believes if he does something, it’s legal, period."
"And perhaps most importantly, he believes there is nothing we can do about it."
"He believes he can and will get away with anything he does. We all laughed when he said he could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot someone and get away with it."
"It’s no joke. He’s shooting holes in the Constitution, and we can not let him get away with it.”
Investigative reporter John Solomon said on Fox News's "Hannity" that the U.S. government was aware Ukraine was planning to investigate the activities at Burisma Holdings, the energy company Hunter Biden was a board member of.
