Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) told Bloomberg on Sunday that the House’s impeachment of President Trump had opened the door to impeaching former Vice President Joe Biden should he be elected president in 2020.
“I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened,” Ernst said in the interview. “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.’”
Ernst said the former vice president 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.”
Joe Biden spearheaded the push to remove Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was eventually fired in 2016 with bipartisan support.
