Former Vice President Joe Biden for the first time called for President Trump's impeachment on Wednesday. In a speech, Biden called for Trump to be impeached after stopping short of doing so throughout his 2020 campaign. "Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation, and committed impeachable acts," Biden said. "To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached." Previously, Biden had only said Trump "could be impeached," but declined to make "that judgment now." Trump responded on Twitter, calling Biden's comments "pathetic." Biden quickly responded, "Thanks for watching. Stop stonewalling the Congress. Honor your oath. Respect the Constitution."
