Gov. Charlie Baker appeared Thursday to back the decision of Congressional House leadership to open a formal impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump following the revelation that Trump tried to enlist the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival, former Vice President Joe Biden.
In Everett where he was promoting new housing production, Baker said he was not familiar with “all of the written materials and allegations that are out there so far,” but had read and heard enough to be alarmed by the president’s behavior.
“Based on the stuff that I’ve read it’s a deeply disturbing situation and circumstance and I think the proper role and responsibility for Congress at this point is to investigate it and get to the bottom of it,” Baker said.
