Joni Ernst-There would be an IMMEDIATE Republican push to impeach Biden over Ukraine if he's elected

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by JudyM (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst warned Sunday that Republicans would immediately push to impeach Joe Biden over his work in Ukraine as vice president if he win the White House.

“I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened,” Ernst said in an interview with Bloomberg News. “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.’”

The grounds for impeachment, the first-term Republican said, would be “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.”

President Barack Obama sent Biden to Ukraine on his behalf to fight corruption, including leading the push from the U.S. and western European powers to remove prosecutor general Viktor Shokin from office. When Shokin was fired in 2016, no congressional Republicans expressed concern about the move. Eventually, though, Shokin began to argue that he was fired because he was investigating Burisma and Biden wanted to protect his son, Hunter, who was on the company’s board. There’s no evidence to support that claim.

Unlikely especially losing the presidency. I think repugs just like hearing themselves speak.

This is Ernst’s SECOND time trying to scare Democrats away from nominating Biden. They know he’ll beat Trump. And in a post-Trump world, Ernst has no clout. More like a stench for having enabled a tyrant.

10. Thank you for reminding everyone how partisan the Republicans are

They refuse to impeach and remove a Republican who actually committed crimes. However, they have already committed to impeaching a potential Democratic candidate regardless of the facts.

The House of Representatives is controlled by the Dems. They will add seats in 2020. So there will be NO IMPEACHMENT of Joe Biden.

The Senate will also be in control by the Dems as Joni looks to LOSE in November.

Joni needs to STFU.....

The same person who was giddy that the impeachment trial may hurt Biden in Iowa. Dirty trickster. She's muddying the water by placing doubt on the longevity of a Biden presidency. Trying to meddle in our primary elections. We saw this trick in 2016, it won't work.

The Dem president can just shut down investigations, block witnesses from testifying, and withhold all documents.

That precedent has now been established, thanks to you and your party.

Because there's no evidence of wrong doing.

Why doesn't the media press Ernst and others spewing that garbage to produce the evidence?

Adam Schiff and the House managers produced evidence so convincing a number of Republican Senatorsm along with most of the world not watching FOX, admitted Trump is guilty.

43. It's the little-known "reverse Samson" effect

It strikes people from rural areas who never were bright to begin with when they had short hair, and got progressively more stupid as they let their hair grow out. If Joni Ernst lets her hair grow to waist length, she will be put back in Kindergarten, but I'm sure her doctors have already warned her not to let this happen.

44. It wouldn't matter what Republicans push.

They've established that Presidents don't have to cooperate with congressional investigations. After this impeachment fiasco no presidents should ever be compelled to cooperate with a congressional committee for anything ever again. And even then it's not likely they will still have a majority in either chamber of Congress if they lose the White House.
