An old video resurfaced Wednesday showing then-Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., admonishing Republicans considering impeaching then-President Bill Clinton in 1998, arguing that Congress should only pursue proceedings based on principle rather than "politics."

"The American people don’t think that they have made a mistake by electing Bill Clinton," Biden said in a recently-surfaced video, "and we in Congress had better be very careful before we upset their decision, and make darn sure that we are able to convince them if we decide to upset their decision that our decision to impeach him was based upon principle and not politics."

The video surfaced after Biden appeared to offer support for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's decision, announced on Tuesday, to open a formal impeachment inquiry on President Trump.

He has “evolved” in his thinking. That’s the way RATS rationalize gay marriage, trans, abortion, guns, and now impeachment and use “evolved” as why they (and only them) can have it both ways and somehow not a hypocrite.

Clinton's defenders said they all do it, and it was true. That was a large portion of his support: the fact that not only Congress but a large portion of the male population were doing the same thing (or wished they could), and a large portion of the female population wished they could be Monica.

You know I'm right.

One more thing.... let’s not forget President Obama asking the Ukraine to investigate Trump’s campaign manager Paul Manafort. According to the Democrats’ thoughts on Trump, this would be an impeachable offense.

okay, we all know most politicians are two faced. Some have multiple faces depending on the day and the issues. These are the politicians usually in the leadership or are democrats
