'Betrayed his nation': Joe Biden calls for Donald Trump's impeachment

Following reports on Ukraine call, public support for impeachment probe on the rise, polls show Trump’s Request to Investigate the Biden Declined by China

In an eight-page letter signed on Tuesday by the White House counsel, the administration bluntly announced it would not cooperate with the Democratic-led House of Representatives, calling its impeachment push illegitimate. He said in an opinion piece over the weekend the would let Congress do its job on impeachment.

Joe Biden's marketing campaign lashed out Wednesday at Fb for refusing to dam an advert from President Donald Trump which the Democratic candidate mentioned included "definitively debunked conspiracy theories" on Biden.

Trump has maintained he did nothing wrong when he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Biden and his son during a July 25 telephone call, which came days after Trump froze almost $400 million in military assistance to Ukraine. "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".

But in a campaign speech in Rochester, N.H., Biden was unequivocal, saying that "to preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, [Trump] should be impeached". Articles appear on euronews.com for a limited time.

Trump "believes he can and will get away with anything he does. Wait until we get to Romania", he said waving his tablet, suggesting that he had the information there. It's no joke. He's shooting holes in the Constitution and we can not let him get away with it.

China Punishes NBA As Crisis Over Democracy Tweet Deepens
NBA China, launched in 2008 to run the league's business, is now worth more than $ 4 billion , according to Forbes. Some fans expressed dismay at the way the controversy had spread, while voicing their support for Beijing's view.

Biden acknowledged that he pressured Ukraine to fire Shokin, but denied that it had any relation to his son's business dealings in the country and was in line with pressure from other foreign leaders to fire the prosecutor.

"Senator, if the overwhelming issue is President Trump must be defeated, do you feel you and other Democrats must be doing more to speak in one voice that Joe Biden's family is off-limits?"

Trump has accused Biden of trying to stop an investigation into the Ukrainian gas company where his son, Hunter, was a board member.

In a summary released by the White House of President Trump's call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky in July, Trump clearly engaged in thinly-veiled extortion, withholding $400 million in congressionally-approved military aid, in exchange for Zelensky providing dirt on the Bidens also.

The video, which has been also posted by the campaign to Twitter and YouTube, accuses Biden of using his power as vice president to influence Ukraine in order to benefit his son, Hunter.
