BREAKING NEWS: TRUMP TRIES TO BLOCK SUBPOENAS, CAUSING TOP DEMOCRATS TO CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT

Biden: If Trump blocks investigations, Congress has no choice but to impeach him
BY JOHN BOWDEN - 04/30/19 09:13 AM EDT

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that Congress should move forward with impeachment proceedings if the White House and Republicans work to block Democratic efforts to investigate matters "left undone" by special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

In an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America," the 2020 presidential candidate said that Democrats would have "no alternative" but to impeach President Trump if he were to block a congressional investigation into whether he obstructed justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey and attempting to fire Mueller.

Biden's call for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings if the White House blocks its investigation falls short of the position of his fellow 2020 primary contender Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who said at a town hall last week that Congress should begin impeachment proceedings now.

"We have very good reason to believe that there is an investigation that has been conducted which has produced evidence that tells us that this president and his administration engaged in obstruction of justice. I believe Congress should take the steps toward impeachment," she told a CNN town hall in New Hampshire.

Trump sues Deutsche Bank, Capital One to block subpoenas

After US lawmakers demanded Donald Trump's financial records from Deutsche Bank and Capital One, the US president sued to stop the release. The subpoenas would serve to "ferret" for damaging material, the lawsuit says.

Previously, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said the subpoenas were part of an investigation "into allegations of potential foreign influence on the US political process," hinting at Trump's dealings with Russia.

Responding to Trump's legal move, Schiff and his colleague from the House Financial Committee Maxine Waters said the lawsuit was "meritless."

"This lawsuit is not designed to succeed; it is only designed to put off meaningful accountability as long as possible," they said.

1. Hey, another candidate going after Trump,

 

I can add him to my short list.

Say what you want but Bernie has been bashing Trump and Warren has also, now add Biden to my list.
