Trump now risks impeachment for using his power to get dirt on a political opponent.
It was a quick peek into the president's perspective: Trump isn't just peddling bogus corruption allegations against his would-be challenger; the Republican also considers it important to let the public know about Biden's poll advantages relative to his 2020 rivals.
Numerous other 19 Democratic 2020 candidates have long supported the opening of an impeachment inquiry into Trump, following the findings of former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference into the 2016 election and links between the Trump 2016 campaign and Moscow. A rough White House transcript of that call and a related whistleblower complaint prompted House Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings.
Democrats say that Trump tried to coerce Zelensky by holding back USA military aid to Ukraine. However, the site told the Biden campaign in a letter that policy didn't apply here, because it doesn't apply to "a politician's own claim or statement" regardless of whether "the substance of that claim has been debunked elsewhere".
In 2016, then-Vice President Biden pressured Ukraine to remove its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who had investigated Burisma.
Trump "believes he can and will get away with anything he does. He's picked a fight with the wrong guy".
"So pathetic to see Sleepy Joe Biden, who with his son, Hunter, and to the detriment of the American Taxpayer, has ripped off at least two countries for millions of dollars, calling for my impeachment - and I did nothing wrong", Trump wrote.
The half-minute-long video advertisement released last week by the Trump campaign has also been posted on Twitter and YouTube and claims that Biden offered "Ukraine $1 billion to fire the prosecutor investigating a company affiliated with his son".
In his speech, Biden noticeably did not mention the Senate or its potential role in deciding Trump's fate.

"He spoke with conviction".
One undecided voter, Virginia Schonwald, a 63-year-old retired school librarian, said she liked that Biden was "very fact-based and that he was forceful". "His speech made me more confident about him as a candidate".
