Joe Biden drops a surprising comment about impeachment

Joe Biden

At 75, Biden is three years older than Republican President Donald Trump and would be 77 by the time his party's primary contest got underway. Trump, who is now 72, became the oldest president sworn into office, though Ronald Reagan, who was almost 74 at the time of his reelection, remains the oldest president elected in US history.

Asked if Mueller should release his report before the midterm elections, Biden said, "I think it should be issued when they finish the investigation".

'It's totally appropriate for people to look at me and say if I were to run for office again, 'Well God darn you're old, " he said in remarks carried by CNN.

Biden potentially faces a wide range of Democratic hopefuls, on various ends of the age spectrum. Sen.

Sanders is 77 and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, now 77 and 69, respectively. Kamala Harris, now 53. But Biden said the decision to run would be based on personal reasons, not polls. During the event, someone in the crowd shouted, "Run, Joe, Run!"

Cassie and Diddy met in the early 2000s and started dating a few years after she inked a contract with his Bad Boy Records label. Although they chose to keep their relationship private over the years, it is believed that they first got together around 2007.

Biden then grew emotional talking about his family's struggle since the death of his son Beau in 2015.

'I've been around a long time, ' Biden explained. "We're working through it", he said. "I think they're going to judge me on my vitality". "And I'm not quite sure, I'm not sure quite sure I'm there yet".

"I think we should focus on all the bad things that are happening now in terms of interest of the middle-class people and working-class people", Biden continued. The comment came during a question-and-answer session in response to inquiries about mandatory retirement ages in Congress and term limits for Supreme Court justices.

"I think age is a totally legitimate thing to raise", he said.
