— Former Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday for the first time called for President Donald Trump's impeachment.

"To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached," Biden said of the President, speaking at a town hall in New Hampshire.

He said: "President Trump has indicted himself by obstructing justice, refusing to comply with the congressional inquiry, he's already convicted himself.
