Joe Biden tells @GMA Congress is investigating elements “left undone” by special counsel Mueller.
“If in fact they block the investigation, they have no alternative but to go to the only other constitutional resort they have, [which] is impeachment.” https://t.co/YS6D0nsVmt pic.twitter.com/KUqWzPHZ7v

Asked of his initial reaction to the report’s findings, Biden said, “There was Russian interference — without any question.”
He argued that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report lays out “seven or eight things that are left undone” that Mueller felt “was not within his purview to investigate.”
“The Congress is attempting to take that up, and what the Congress should do, and they are doing, is investigate that,” Biden said. “If, in fact, they (Trump and associates) blocked the investigation, they (Congress) have no alternative, but to go to the only other constitutional resort they have is impeachment.”
There is something about former Obama Vice President Joe Biden using the word “impeachment” that seems to give it a whole new viability.
Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Bernie Sanders can all say it and still seems to remain a very distant possibility.
But Uncle Joe comes out and says the word, and it almost feels as if that moves it more toward inevitability.
