Former Vice President Joe Biden finally fired back forcefully against President Donald Trump’s endless barrage of attacks and corrupt abuse of power on Wednesday, calling for impeachment at a town hall in Rochester, New Hampshire.

Biden has curiously stayed on the sidelines while Trump found his schemes to induce Ukraine to investigate the potential 2020 Democratic nominee exposed and triggering a reinvigorated impeachment inquiry. While the former vice president — along with his son Hunter Biden — was being viscously smeared, largely with provable falsehoods and lies, his campaign struggled to leverage the moment to fight back.

That changed Wednesday.

“To preserve our constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity,” Bidden said, “he should be impeached.”

He argued that Trump’s own words and the evidence presented as part of the inquiry so far have already proven the case against the president.

He added: “We have to remember that impeachment isn’t only about what the president’s done. It’s about the threat the president poses to the nation if allowed to remain in office.”‘

Trump, Biden continued, is stoking fears of a “civil war” and feeding the dangerous inclinations of some in far-right media.

(Reuters) - Senate candidate David McCormick has filed a lawsuit in a Pennsylvania court to compel counties to count undated mail-in ballots in his primary race against TV personality Dr. Mehmet Oz, whom he trails by less than 1,000 votes.

The race between McCormick, a former hedge fund executive, and Oz, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, for the Republican Party nomination is close enough to trigger an automatic recount under Pennsylvania state law.
