Biden takes the gloves off in latest Trump feud

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden upped the ante on Wednesday, saying for the first time yet that President Donald Trump should be impeached, as a partisan fight over a congressional investigation of the Republican president deepened.

Nathan Frandino has more.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE BIDEN, DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "He should be impeached." Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden said Wednesday enough is enough.

For the first time, Biden said President Donald Trump should be impeached.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE BIDEN, DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "In full view of the world and the American people Donald Trump has violated his oath of office, betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts." Biden made the comments on the campaign trail in New Hampshire.

He had previously shied away from an outright comment ...until now.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) JOE BIDEN, DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, SAYING: "To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached." The news comes as Democrats engage in impeachment proceedings against Trump.

The inquiry centers on Trump's attempts to have Ukraine's president investigate Biden and his son Hunter over Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "In other words, no pressure." At the White House later on Wednesday, Trump hit back at Biden.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, SAYING: "Biden is dropping like a rock.

I don't think he's going to make it.

I didn't think he was going to make it for a long time, I don't think he's going to make it and I guess this is one way he can do it.

You know he didn't say that until right now, and he sees what's happening to him.

I guess he's no longer the frontrunner." Trump - without evidence - has sought to portray Biden as corrupt, even running a video ad on Facebook claiming as such.

The Biden campaign tried to have the video removed, saying it "spreads false, definitively debunked conspiracy theories," but Facebook said the ad did not violate company policies.
