Trump Responds to Biden Call For Impeachment

Published

on

The man at the center of the famous phone call that sparked the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is now officially calling for the impeachment of his potential 2020 presidential opponent.

After several of his fellow Democratic presidential hopefuls announced their full support of impeaching President Trump for asking his Ukrainian counterpart to “look into” alleged corruption involving Biden and his son, the former vice president has made it official: He now believes Congress should impeach Trump.

“To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached,” Biden told an audience at a town hall in New Hampshire on Wednesday, as reported by CNN. “He’s shooting holes in the Constitution. And we cannot let him get away with it.”

Biden said Trump has “already convicted himself” by allegedly “obstructing justice” by “refusing to comply with the congressional inquiry.”

“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,” the Democratic frontrunner declared.

“Trump will do anything to get re-elected, including violating the most basic forms of democracy,” he added. “It’s stunning, and it’s dangerous.”

“No president in history has dared to engage in such unimaginable behavior,” Biden alleged.

In response, Trump fired off a tweet pointing to the issue at the heart of his much-analyzed phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and suggesting that Biden was only getting behind the impeachment push because he is being rapidly overtaken in the polls by Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

“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,” he wrote. “Joe’s Failing Campaign gave him no other choice!”

Trump followed that tweet up with a video highlighting the corruption claims against Biden and calling for Americans to push back against the Democrats’ efforts to “overturn the election.”

Biden’s slightly belated — at least compared to some of his Democratic rivals — call for impeachment follows the White House’s decision to, as The New York Times put it, “declare war on impeachment” in a letter to Democratic congressional leaders Tuesday.

“Your unprecedented actions have left the president with no choice,” the letter White House Counsel Pat A. Cipollone sent to Democratic leaders Tuesday reads. “In order to fulfill his duties to the American people, the Constitution, the executive branch and all future occupants of the office of the presidency, President Trump and his administration cannot participate in your partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances.”

While the Democrats initially launched their impeachment inquiry over claims of a quid pro quo issued by Trump to Zelensky, after a transcript released by the Trump administration showed no such overt “pressure,” Democratic leaders have increasingly shifted the rhetoric toward “obstruction.” In his statement on Wednesday, Biden notably fell in line with his fellow Democrats’ “obstruction” narrative.

The impeachment inquiry was sparked by a whistleblower complaint accusing Trump of “using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election,” particularly by “pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President’s main domestic political rivals.” Amid a flood of reports about the complaint, Trump authorized the release its release as well as the release of a transcript of the call in which Trump did ask for Zelensky to “look into” the Biden matter but offered no “quid pro quo” as initially alleged.

“I heard you had a prosecutor who was very good and he was shut down, and that’s really unfair,” Trump told Zelensky. “A lot of people are talking about that, the way they shut your very good prosecutor down and you had some very bad people involved. Mr. Giuliani is a highly respected man. He was the mayor of New York City, a great mayor, and I would like him to call you. I will ask him to call you along with the Attorney General. Rudy very much knows what’s happening and he is a very capable guy. If you could speak to him that would be great. The former ambassador from the United States, the woman, was bad news so I just want to let you know that. The other thing, there’s a lot of talk about Biden’s son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it … It sounds horrible to me.”

    Biden needs to stop his projecting as he is talking to the man in the mirror!

  • Bonnie says:

    Let’s be honest Democrats are not the ones that are going to have our country in dire trouble. Under Obama our country deteriorated he almost destroyed us and by the grace of God President Trump has turned this country up, around and prosperous once again. That has infuriated the Democrats and now they’re lying about the fake impostor known as the “WHISTLEBLOWER” so pathetic that they are always cheating. Another coup attempt just because they hate Trump so much. They wanted a one world order government and they will get one, but it won’t be controlled by Democrats the Antichrist will be the leader. You asked for it and Satan will deliver it.

    Sure Biden wants this to stop, if everything is found to be true he and Hunter are looking at treason charges, did Biden sell the office of the VP. to China for 1.5 billion? and was he in bed with Ukraine? Hmm, I would be getting a bit nervous too.

  • War Dog says:

    Call me a conspiracy theorist all you want BUT, mark my words. We are about to witness the destruction and imprisonment of THE MOST corrupt Government in the history of these United States. The Liberal Democratic Party is about to face the Impeachment and arrest of EVERY LAST ONE of their own Leaders!!! Military Tribunals could possibly be formed for the following High Crimes:

    Sedition
    Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward insurrection against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent (or resistance) to lawful authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interests of sedition. ALSO: Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(L), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2147.)

    TREASON
    Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

    Soft Coup d’état
    Soft coup is a term used to describe a coup d’état without the use of violence but, based on a conspiracy or plot that has as its objective the taking of the State power by partially or wholly illegal means, in order to operate an exchange of political leadership – and in some cases also of the current institutional order.

      War Dog, I have been saying the same thing for three years now. I just wish it would happen already! Why is Barr not on top of this? What are they waiting for?

      • Madeleine says:

        Lee patience is a virtue. Q didn’t ant people to panic or have uprisings. Slowly but surely, the public are learning all the crimes these corrupt people have been indulging in and getting used to the good changes that are coming. Just pray and trust in God always Amen <3

    • Red Devil 5th Inf. Div. VN. says:

      If anyone truly believes that they are above the law it’s the Democrats, especially Pelosi and Schiff, they should never be able to get away with the things that they have said and done, they should be the first ones to stand trial and be put away for life.

  • Michael says:

    I can’t wait for the Durham report . There will many people arrested and shown on the news doing the perp walk lol . And I expect Fox5 to get advanced Notification so they can be there to film the Law Enforcement RAID on their homes with hundreds of officers , attack dogs , flashing lights , helicopters , AR-15’s , bullhorns . This was done to people associated with President Trump . What comes around goes around ! MAGA . Guilty until proven innocent .

  • Zynn says:

    Wait a minute… The dems are saying that Trump is trying to interfere with the campaign of his opponent, even though Biden may not ever get the DNC nomination and be put on the ticket.
    Yet it is ok for Joe Biden to call for Trump’s impeachment, which actually is an attempt to interfere with his opponent, who is already on the ticket for the election campaign?

  • DIANE C says:

    RIGHT JOEY BOY YOU WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET ELECTED!! YOUR TOOOOO DESPERATE AND TOOOOO OLD!!!!

  • Jesse says:

    Never knew a man..well… er ….mouse ….that has his foot so far in his mouth ..mr biden …your biden your time with your lies

    • Mary Noriega says:

      Wishful thinking.. This will drag on until the Corrupt Democrats take the Presidency.. Then will be erased forever. They took over the power of Congress. Next will Impeach Trump…Will be a day of doom and destruction. Trump needs to be supported and re elected.

    If this was a tutorial on how to raise shitty sons and perv on girls and women I’d take his word for it no questions. When it comes to things beyond his realm of expertise basically anything else on the world I’ll question every aspect of it. I don’t care of they say they were ok with it or how they wan to explain it. The dude with this creepy I’ve got a chub look on his face ass he caresses a females shoulders, and then leans in real close to whisper things and smell their hair. That’s some pervert molester uncle type shit there is no way around it. If I walked up to a stranger’s daughter or wife and placed my hands on her shoulders and leaned in and sniffed her I’d be in cuffs. At the very least I’d be fighting a very pissed off dad or spouse.

    Published on Oct 4, 2019 Glenn explains EVERYTHING you need to know about the Ukraine scandal. And it goes MUCH further than Hunter and Joe Biden, and their involvement there. This timeline gives you all the facts and proof you need to show that there was DNC collusion, not collusion with President Trump, during the 2016 election.

  • Madeleine says:

    Get yourselves stocked up on basics folks! The cabal is about to go down, and its time! The patriots, White hats are in charge and its going to be great! Soon all the jigsaw pieces of the puzzle will fall into place, and why troops are being brought home! In God we trust Amen. Our grandchildren are going to have a beautiful future <3

  • BOB says:

    ALL OF THIS “PHONE CALL” BULLSHIT, IS JUST FARTING AGAINST A WHIRLWIND. THE UNITED STATES AND UKRAINE HAVE A TREATY OF “MUTUAL LEGAL ASISTANCE” FOR ANY PRESIDENT TO CALL ANY PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE. THIS WAS SIGNED BY BILL CLINTON IM 1998. OBAMA USED THIS TO SEND BIDEN WITH A BILLION CHECK TO BRIBE POROSHENKO INTO CREATING FALSE SLANDER AGAINST TRUMP. THERE NEVER WAS ANY “RUSSIA COLLUSION” . BIDEN ALSO USED THAT CHECK TO BRIBE BIDEN JR. OUT OF PRISON. JOE DECIDED THAT CHECK TO EXTORT A $10 MILLION KICKBACK FOR HIMSELF

  • Karen K says:

    Biden has no room to talk (lie) about our great President Trump shooting holes in the Constitution! When Odumbo was in office he tried to completely destroy the Constitution and our great US of A. The only thing they don’t like about President Trump is that he isn’t a politician that they can tell what to do. Trump walks to his own beat of the drum, has practically did everything that he has promised during his campaign, and the demonrats don’t like it. They have been after him since the day before the inauguration!! SMH
