At Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate in Westerville, Ohio, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was asked his view of impeaching President Donald Trump. His response was that impeachment should move forward — but not obscure the policy goals the Democratic Party holds for the American people.
“Let me make a point,” said Sanders, who is coming off of successful treatment of a heart attack. “I think it’s absolutely imperative we go forward with impeachment. I hope that he is impeached. But I think what would be a disaster, if the American people believe that all we were doing is taking on Trump.”
“We’re forgetting that 87 million Americans are uninsured or underinsured,” said Sanders. “We are forgetting good climate change. We are forgetting about the fact that half of our people are living paycheck to paycheck. What we have to do is end this corruption, set a precedent for future history that says presidents like this cannot behave this way. We cannot and must not turn our backs on the pain of the working class of this country.”
‘You’re a damn liar’: Joe Biden goes off on Iowa voter for attacking his son’s work in Ukraine
As House Democrats move closer to indicting President Donald Trump on articles of impeachment, many Trump supporters continue to insist that Trump did nothing wrong when, on July 25, he tried to pressure Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Moreover, some impeachment critics still claim that an investigation of the Bidens’ activities in Ukraine is warranted. The Bidens’ connection to Ukraine was brought up this week by a man at a Joe Biden campaign event in Iowa — and the former vice president and U.S. senator from Delaware wasted no time calling him out.
‘A president the world is laughing at’: Biden releases new ad attacking Trump — and it’s getting widely praised
Former Vice President Joe Biden, still the Democratic frontrunner, Wednesday night released an ad that has many people talking – it's already been viewed 5.4 million times – and it's getting praise from even non-Biden supporters.
The ad uses footage from the viral video of world leaders at NATO mocking President Donald Trump – a video that upset the American president so greatly he left London early, canceling a press conference and bilateral meeting, to head back to D.C.
Progressives fire back at Pete Buttigieg’s ‘bad faith’ claim that tuition-free college proposals are elitist
"The type of attitude that Mayor Pete Buttigieg is exhibiting here is in fact elitist in itself."
Progressives and supporters of tuition-free public college plans on Wednesday denounced South Bend, Indiana Mayor and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg's recent claim that offering a free public college education furthered an "elitist" worldview.
At a campaign stop in South Carolina on Monday, Buttigieg told the press that plans to offer public college to all Americans tuition-free push a "narrative" that one must attend college to succeed in the United States.
