House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said impeachment “may be the only remedy” if President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate one of his 2020 opponents, Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden. “If the president is essentially withholding military aid at the same time that he is trying to browbeat a foreign leader into doing something illicit that is providing dirt on his opponent during a presidential campaign, then that may be the only remedy that is coequal to the evil that conduct represents,” said Schiff, D-Calif., on CNN's “State of the Union” Sunday. Days after news broke about an anonymous intelligence official who filed a whistleblower complaint involving a July 25 conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Wall Street Journal reported that Trump urged Zelensky about eight times to investigate Biden's son Hunter, who sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company when Biden served as vice president.
