Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday for the first time called for President Donald Trump's impeachment. The statement was made by a Democratic politician during a speech at the New Hampshire City Hall, CNN reports.
"Donald 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," Biden said.
The former vice president said Trump "made a verdict on himself" not only when he asked the president of Ukraine to investigate the Biden family and the 2016 presidential election, but also when he publicly called on Ukraine and China to the investigate the Biden's case last week.
"To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached," Biden said.
He said that Trump would do anything to get re-elected, even if it had to break the foundations of American democracy.
As we reported earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump stated he wants Ukraine and China to investigate the case of Joe Biden and his son.
