In what can only be described as a “tit for tat” scenario, a freshman GOP senator has said that if Joe Biden should somehow be elected president in November, he could face immediate impeachment.

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) has warned that former Vice President Joe Biden could immediately face calls for impeachment if elected president. The first-term Republican went on the offense in a recent interview with Bloomberg News, saying that Biden’s prior dealings with Ukraine puts a target on his back.

“I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened,” she 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 accused Biden of interfering in an investigation into the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. She said then-President Barack Obama tasked Biden with weeding out corruption, but that Biden ignored “Burisma because his son was on the company’s board making over a million dollars a year.”

Ernst’s comments come as President Trump’s own impeachment trial in the Senate is set to conclude this week. Trump has continually said, as has his defense team, that he withheld congressionally approved aid to the war-torn country due to his own concerns about internal corruption – and nothing to do with the Bidens.

In an interview with CNN, Ernst said she will vote to acquit Trump on Wednesday, arguing that what he did does not merit being removed from office.

She added that Trump meant well but went about things in “the wrong manner.”

“I think, generally speaking, going after corruption would be the right thing to do,” she said. “He did it maybe in the wrong manner.”

Ernst has since walked back the comments she made over the weekend about impeaching Biden. Speaking with reporters just off the Senate floor, on Monday, Ernst said her weekend remarks were overblown and that she was trying to argue that Democrats have made impeachment — once a political tool reserved for extreme circumstances — the new normal in today’s partisan warfare.

“That was taken entirely out of context. The point is that the Democrats have lowered the bar so far that … regardless of who it is, if you have a different party in the House than that of an elected president, you can have just random comments thrown out there with folks saying we’re going to impeach,” Ernst said when asked by The Hill about her earlier Biden comments.

  1. Any and all wicked acts committed by members of the foreign enemy Kenyan “Butt Pirate Bathhouse Barry the Osamanator’s” regime it was aware of, I would not be surprised to discover the Obamas had investments in the Burisma corporation.

  2. Either Ben Franklin or Thomas Jefferson said even after leaving office, impeachment is still available or a person could violate the Constitution and by resigning walk away from punishment of impeachment and avoid prosecution for their actions….. impeach biden even if he does not become elected… and do not overlook clinton and the obama criminals.

  3. But, we have to KEEP the majority in the Senate, & gain the majority back in the House. Nancy Pelosi needs to be replaced. THEN the Dims can do nothing to our President!

  4. Impeachment could be the case with ANY democrat elected president. Recall could be
    the case for ANY democrat elected to ANY political office. Someone should tell Nancy and Adam Schiffless that actions have consequences.

  5. ‘PRESIDENT trump went about it in he wrong way” didn’t cause this impeachment. It started before he stepped of the escalator at Trump Tower. There are multitudes of brazen “impeach 45”, (Al Green, MadMaxine H20’s rants, Madman Portly Jerry Nadler , Bitter Pill-0si, and the biggest lying lawyer and arrogant, ego driven shameless Adam Bull Schiff. All have had it in since their loser “corrupt Hillary” went down in the biggest flaming crash, which she claims still can’t figure out “What Happened.”

    “No President Trump didn’t go about it in the wrong manner.” A corrupt US Army member assigned to the White House, born in the Ukraine, turned American, along with his twin brother lawyer were at the center of the whistle blowing attempt to take down our President. Mr Alexander Vindman ( not worthy of being recognized as Lt. Col ) subverted his military chain of command, lied and went around his command and started this mess with the so-called whistle blower.

    Joni, that’s where it started. That is where the next phase of investigations must start. Indictments, a Military Court Marshal of Mr. Vindman is necessary for his disobedience to the Military, Our Constitution and the oath he broke to the United States of America.

    For the good of a nation and our own protection, we have to build a wall to put a halt to illegals entering America. Top put an halt to illegal drug traffic and those who defy our rule of law. There’s no place here for these thugs.

    But, now with traitor’s the like’s of whistle blower EC and Mr Alexander Vindman with his twin bro. a lawyer; much less an officer of our Court’s; Federal , State & local jurisdiction’s being a coup of disruptive violator’s of their oath’s sworn to uphold. These are a bunch of landed immigrant’s whose parent’s, grandparent’s who came here, followed the rule of law, but after supposedly proved their worthiness, took their oath and swore their allegiance to our homeland, The United States of America. They supposedly earned the trust to join the greatest military network, which many, not all call upon to help keep nation’s safe from harm. This is a way to invest in our freedom, by serving our nation in high area’s of trustworthy people to ouster and invade foreign agent’s who will do anything to attack America.

    This treason has been brought to us by a few too many who lack integrity. Their turning out to be demonRat un-democratic and un-American Landed Immigrant’s who have brought shame to the system of legal pathway to citizenship. It has not nor ever will be “a right.” It must be earned, respected and revered . These player’s have trampled this precious gift, worthy of many, but will never be meant as a tool to over through .

    For these reason’s, these player’s along with the growing number of indignant Congressional and dirty NAS, CIA, FBI & other’s involved in the dirtiest coup of coup’s in our history, must all face Lady Justice. Not letting the actions of Nasty Pelosi’s destruction of House Document’s seen across the world must not go unpunished.

    Joni, kindly re-think what you said, and get back to the honest media. “Fake news” will continue to be “fake news.”

  6. I hope the Republican Party has already written impeachment orders on every Democrat running for President. Tit for tat!

  7. He shouldn’t be allowed to run for office and prosecuted for his blackmail while in the office. How much more proof do they need?
