First Republican Governor Backs Impeachment Inquiry

Fox News (LOL) reports:

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott on Thursday became the first Republican governor to back House Democrats’ call for an impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Scott said at a news conference that he wasn’t surprised by the allegations that Trump repeatedly urged Ukraine’s president to “look into” Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden because he’s “watched him over the years.”

Trump had requested Ukraine look into Biden’s attempt to pressure the nation into firing its top prosecutor, who was investigating a natural gas firm partially led by his son, Hunter. Scott added, however, that he wanted to see more information before taking further action. The Vermont governor previously criticized Trump over his attacks on progressive House freshmen in the summer. Other moderate GOP governors have yet to weigh in on an impeachment inquiry.
