Sen. Ernst Warns Joe Biden Could Be Impeached over Ukraine if Elected

Ernst, a first term lawmaker who sits on the Senate Judiciary Committee, told Bloomberg News on Sunday that the “door” for impeachment has been “opened.” In particular, the Iowa lawmaker cited Biden’s role in overseeing Obama administration policy toward Ukraine, while his son, Hunter, was simultaneously serving on the board of directors of one of the country’s largest natural gas conglomerates. Ernst said:

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 Iowa Republican told lawmakers the reasoning had to deal with Joe Biden “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.”
