Joe Biden on Donald Trump’s impeachment trial: ‘It has to happen’
The impeachment trial of Donald Trump “has to happen”, Joe Biden told CNN on Monday.
While acknowledging the effect it could have on his agenda, the president said there would be “a worse effect if it didn’t happen”.
Biden said he didn’t think enough Republican senators would vote for impeachment to convict, though he also said the outcome might well have been different if Trump had had six months left in his term.
“The Senate has changed since I was there, but it hasn’t changed that much,” Biden said.
