Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he hopes the Democrats won’t begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump should they win the House next month, urging patience until special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings are complete in a CBS This Morning interview.

“I hope they don’t. I don’t think there’s a basis for doing that right now,” Biden said of impeachment. “There are so many things to attend to immediately. Let’s see where the investigation takes us.”

“I think we should focus on all the terrible things that are happening now in terms of interest of the middle class people and working class people,” he added, singling out Trump’s treatment of unions and the EPA.
