Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) tells Bloomberg News that there could be an immediate push by Republicans to impeach Joe Biden over his family’s dealings in Ukraine if he is elected president.

“Joe Biden should be very careful what he’s asking for because, you know, we can have a situation where if it should ever be President Biden, that immediately, people, right the day after he would be elected would be saying, ‘Well, we’re going to impeach him.’”

What Ernst didn’t say: Joe Biden will definitely be impeached if elected.
