Biden Has a Message for Dems Who Want to Impeach Trump If They Win the House — They Aren’t Going to Like It

During his latest interview, former Vice President Joe Biden told “CBS This Morning” that if the Democrats took control of the House, they shouldn’t make impeaching President Donald Trump their priority.

Biden hopes that if Democrats take control from the midterm elections, that they focus on more pressing issues.

“I hope they don’t,” Biden said in response to Democrats wanting to impeach Trump. “I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now.”

His comment comes as many Democrats have stated that they want to see Trump impeached, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.).

Biden made it clear that Democrats should wait for Special Counsel Robert Mueller to finish his investigation on whether or not there were incidents of collusion between the president and Russia.

The former vice president also said that there are more pressing issues than trying to get the current president out of the White House.

“I think we should focus on all the terrible things that are happening now in terms of interest of the middle-class people and working class people,” Biden said.

“There are so many things to attend to immediately. Let’s see where the investigation takes us,” he added.

“I think our basic American values are at stake — decency, honor, giving hate no safe harbor, telling the truth, understanding there’s something bigger than you. And it really is under assault,” Biden responded.

“It’s not who we are,” the former vice president said, after ripping on Trump.

Watch the video below:

If Democrats hope to impeach Trump, they must win control and a two-thirds majority in the Senate, but they would also require some Republican support to do so.

What do you think?

Yes, the young liberal’s haven’t a clue what the future for them is going to be like. The democrats honestly do not give a crap about their future. They talk a big game but, it’s all about power to
control the country and take away the constitution as it was written.

Somebody better read the Constitution. Impeachment does not require 2/3 vote in the Senate. It only requires a simple majority in the House. Impeachment is nothing more than an indictment, and has nothing to do with the Senate. Then the trial is held in the Senate which requires a 2/3 guilty vote for automatic removal from office. That’s why any impeachment is an effort in futility, because they will never get 67 votes in the Senate.

Joe Biden completely left out the fact that it is the Democrats who threaten democracy. The young people of the US have not been taught the accurate accounts of how awful socialism is when it starts to fail. They don’t realize socialism becomes communism very easily when there isn’t any money left. Public High School curriculum has been altered for about 50 years, slowly and insidiously, to the point our young people are clueless about the massive political changes of the 20th century. If Americans think “working class” people are poor now, just wait and see how poor they will… Read more »

Biden is making a bid to be POTUS for sure.
At least he has sense enough to know this ‘impeachment’ BS is a non-starter.
