Joe Biden Hopes Democrats Donít Impeach Trump

WASHINGTON Ė Former United States vice president and possible 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Wednesday that he hopes the Democrats do not move to impeach US President Donald Trump if they win a majority in the House of Representatives after the mid-term elections in November.

In an interview with the CBS network, whose clips were released on Wednesday, Biden said that the Democrats must wait for Special Counsel Robert Muellerís findings in the Russia probe before making a move on Trumpís impeachment.

ďI hope they donít. I donít think thereís a basis for doing that right now (...) letís see where the investigation takes us,Ē Biden said in the interview which is to be broadcast on Thursday.

The former vice president (2009-2017) was also not in favor of pressurizing Mueller to conclude the investigation before the Nov. 6 poll date.

ďYou donít put an arbitrary end to it. You wait till itís finished, and letís see what it has to say,Ē Biden added.

According to the Constitution, an impeachment of the president requires a majority vote in its favor in the lower chamber of Congress. The House of Representatives is currently dominated comfortably by the Republicans.

Impeachment requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate, the upper chamber.

A majority of surveys forecast a majority gain for the Democrats in the House of Representatives in the Nov. 6 mid-terms, but a Republican majority in the Senate is also most likely.

Biden has begun raising money and is considered one of the top Democratic candidates to prevent Trump from taking office for a second term in 2020.
