Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is saying for the first time that President Donald Trump must be impeached for abusing the powers of his office to help his own reelection.

Biden said Trump is "shooting holes in the Constitution" by asking foreign powers to interfere in the 2020 election.

Trump in a July phone call to Ukraine's leader had asked for "a favor" of investigating Biden and his son, Hunter.

Biden has two campaign stops on his schedule Wednesday: Rochester for a town hall meeting, and an evening event at McIntyre Ski Area in Manchester.
