GOP Senator: Republicans Will Immediately Impeach Biden If He Becomes President

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) said Republicans would likely impeach a President Joe Biden as soon as he took office.

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst predicted that a President Joe Biden would be immediately impeached by Republicans upon taking office, citing his work fighting corruption in Ukraine as the offense, Bloomberg News reported this week.

During an interview with the publication, Ernst said: “I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened. Joe Biden should be very careful what he’s asking for because, you know, we can have a situation where if it should ever be President Biden, that immediately, people, right the day after he would be elected would be saying, ‘Well, we’re going to impeach him.’”

On what grounds? The Republican senator said Biden could be impeached “for being assigned to take on Ukrainian corruption yet turning a blind eye to Burisma because his son was on the board making over a million dollars a year.”

Bloomberg noted that under President Barack Obama, Biden was tasked with fighting corruption in Ukraine, which involved leading the West’s efforts to have former prosecutor general Viktor Shokin removed from office.

That effort found success in 2016 when Shokin was fired, without objection from congressional Republicans — until Shokin began to claim Biden sought his termination in order to protect his son, Hunter Biden, who sat on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. Shokin had investigated the company, and he claims that Biden was attempting to protect his son from the fallout.

Bloomberg noted that this allegation has been debunked, but that has not kept Republicans in Congress from pushing the theory in defense of President Donald Trump.

Asked for comment on Ernst’s remarks, the former vice president said her statements only reaffirm that this has always been about damaging his campaign. Biden told a Sinclair reporter in Iowa: “Doesn’t that make the case I’m making that from the very beginning that this was all about not wanting to run against me?”

Guess she missed that they will need to retake the house AND keep control of the Senate to even try this that is based on Russian disinformation.

She actually thinks they will have enough votes in the House and Senate to do this? LMAO! I doubt they will have enough votes to retake a toilet.

There is absolutely no evidence or situation in which to impeach Biden. You can only impeach for justifiable, PROVEN CAUSE. GOP has none. TRUMP, however, WAS, and will EVER REMAIN IMPEACHED:

Article I, Sec. 2, Clause 5, 👉Trump was IMPEACHED on Dec 18, 2019. He will forever remain impeached. Constitution says that the House of Representatives "shall have the sole Power of Impeachment." —No one in Hillary Clinton’s Campaign indicted. No one in Presidient Obama’s Administration indicted. Just Crooked Trump’s.

You can't impeach anyone if you don't have the seats . I don't think you Republicans will be lucky enough to win any seats the way you lie and lie and lie and the way you screw around with the rule of law

How can she, as a senator, have no idea of how the process of impeachment works? She is a trump follower who is blinded by his requirement that all who support him check their brains at the door. How could she have watched the recent impeachment process and be so absolutely ignorant. And how can she, after taking an oath to protect the Constitution and the people of the United States more than once (as a military person and as a Senator) be so willing to abandon all reason and renege on that oath.

doesn't this impeachment process apply to sitting president and events that occurred in office only??

Joni is unaware that The House does the Impeaching, it appears. Typical.

She's just as stupid as the other Redumblikans! First of all, they can't use anything that happened prior to a president taking office (as Bitch McConnell said). Second, Hunter was hired after the corruption investigation started and was making $500,000 a year. Third, there was no crime (against the Constitution or otherwise) committed by Joe Biden when he and other world leaders sent letters to the Ukrainian president asking that Sokin be removed because HE was the one turning a blind to the very corruption he was supposed to be investigating.

Joni needs to read the rules for impeachment. All three reasons require that the impeachable offense be while in office. Duh!

Hell, they haven’t done a damn thing for The American People over the last 20 years.

They should quit issuing threats. If a second civil war breaks out, does anyone think the people in office, in Washington Dc will make it back to their homes in the south? They will be the first casualties and it will not be pretty. They would be wise to listen to what people are saying about them before issuing threats.

I believe the Democratic party will win control of both houses of Congress this time. The majority of Americans are sick and tired of the blatant, in your face corruption we've seen during this administration.
