US Republican Senator Joni Ernst said her party members could launch an impeachment campaign against former us Vice President Joe Biden if he wins the presidential election. This is reported by Voice of America.
вЂњRepublicans can begin the process of impeaching the newly elected President if Joseph Biden becomes one,вЂќ Ernst said.
The reason the politician called the fact that when Biden was Vice President of the United States, вЂњhe was appointed to eradicate corruption in Ukraine, and he instead turned a blind eye to the company Burisma because his son was on the Supervisory Board of the company.вЂќ
вЂњIf Biden ever becomes President, then immediately after he is elected, people will say: well, we will impeach him,вЂќ the Senator said.
Biden did not ignore such statements. His spokeswoman said that these words will only inspire Democrats to vote for him.
