Senator Joni Ernst suggested that if Biden wins the White House he will be threatened with impeachment over Ukraine.
Here is what she said according to the Des Moines Register:
Ernst said Sunday: "I think this door of impeachable whatever has been opened. 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.'"
On Monday, Ernst walked back her comments when speaking to reporters. “The point is that the Democrats have lowered the bar so far,” she said. “Regardless of who it is, if you have a different party in the House than that of an elected president, you could have just random comments thrown out there with folks saying, ‘We’re going to impeach.'
“I didn't say what guidelines were” for impeachment, she said – rather "that we've lowered the bar so much, is this really what the American people want? And I would say no.”
