As the impeachment push continues to move forward from within the bowels of the democratic party, all eyes are on the GOP as the nation looks to spot chinks in the right’s armor in this trying time.
While a great deal of the republican party has seemingly vowed to circle the wagons around the embattled President, there are some who have begun to show signs of waning support. Utah Senator Mitt Romney is one such politician, but not unexpectedly given his longstanding criticisms of Donald Trump.
Somewhat surprisingly, however, a pair of republican governors have now gone on the offensive, relaying their concerns over the President’s behavior to their constituents and the nation at large.
Vermont Gov. Phil Scott and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, both outspoken critics of Trump, said Thursday that they favored the investigation, but Scott added that he would wait for more information before calling for further action against the president.
In a statement to The Washington Post, Scott called the inquiry “appropriate” and said it is a key part of Congress’s duty as a co-equal branch of government.
“I think we have much more to learn and need to understand all the facts as this serious allegation is considered,” he said. “Congress has a solemn responsibility to every American to fulfill its role in our government system of checks and balances.”
President Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the matter, indicating that there was no “quid pro quo” within the parameters of the phone call that sparked this latest push for impeachment.
