Biden tells Dems: Cut out the "lock Trump up" chants

“I don’t think it’s a good idea that we model ourselves after Trump and say ‘lock him up,’” said Biden. “Look, we have to bring this country together. Let’s start talking civilly to people.”…

Biden was asked, initially, if he would support a criminal investigation of Trump should he become president and the current White House occupant be out of office. He demurred, saying that such calls should be at the discretion of an independent Department of Justice.

“It is the attorney general of the United States, not the president’s private attorney,” he said, underscoring the prosecutorial independence of the post.
