Former Secretary of State Colin Powell urged the Republican Party to "get a grip" in an interview that aired Sunday, unleashing on the GOP for enabling President Donald Trump through seemingly unwavering loyalty.

'When they see things that aren't right they need to say something about it, ' Powell continued.

The roiling scandal prompted the Democratic-controlled House last month to open an impeachment inquiry into Trump's efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.

"The Republican Party has got to get a grip on itself", Powell said. Because our foreign policy is a shambles right now, in my humble judgement.

'I'm a moderate Republican who believes we should have a strong foreign policy, a strong defense policy, but we have to look out for our people, ' Powell said. "But I do know he loves to bait the press and he does that nearly every day to see what you'll talk about". "And I see things happening that are hard to understand", Powell said.

He goes on to reference Trump's sharpiegate incident-a weeks-long controversy involving the president reportedly circling Alabama with a marker on a hurricane map-as an example of the current administration's issues.

USA president Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said in a TV show on Fox News that he had proof about former vice-president Joe Biden's alleged dealings in Romania.

Presidential candidate Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) said if President Trump continues his attacks against former Vice President Joe Biden with regards to Ukraine, he is going to have to go through him.

Former Rep. Mark Sanford, R-S.C., said on Monday that he is curious to know about former Vice President Joe Biden's son's business dealings in Ukraine. "These are baseless, unfounded, scurrilous lies plain and simple, trying to undermine the character of one of the statesman of our country, not our party but our country". "And so on that basis, I called myself a Republican", Powell said.

Although Powell did not explicitly mention the impeachment probe against the president, he later said that Congress "is one of the institutions that should be doing something" about Trump's actions. "And we have to remember the Constitution started with 'we the people, ' not 'me the President'". All parts of Congress.
