Republican governor throws weight behind Trump impeachment inquiry, becomes first to do so

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.

“Like many across the country, I find these statements offensive, racist and certainly not what we expect from the leader of the greatest country in the world,” he said, according to Valley News.

Other moderate Republican governors have yet to weigh in on an impeachment inquiry. When pressed by reporters, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said Wednesday he was withholding judgment. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan have yet to comment.

I was going to say “Republican my ass” but...he probably is indeed like many, though not all on the “R” side.

That doesn’t surprise me. This “Republican” governor who brought in gun control to Vermont (of all places) in the wake of the High School Musical: Gun Control movement in 2018.

There are no Republicans in Vermont. At least not any who hold public office.There are those who masquerade as Republicans because they can't get a Rat Party nomination. The so called "Republican" Governor just admitted a few months ago that he's really a Rat. This guy,it appears,hasn't made such an admission...yet.

Watch for him to flip...officially...sooner rather than later.

So what? RINOS are gonna be RINOS....after watching the late McCain, Romney and Sasse, we should expect this.

As a Governor, he can mouth off all he wants to.....it's the ones in Washington we have to watch, and holler at, when they get weak, and wobbly, about fighting this Socialist coup attempt.

Just another RINO puke.

This is precisely why I no longer do anything but Direct donations. The Republicant Party does not deserve my giving them the time of day, much less my hard earned money.

Scott should immediately be removed from the Republican party and branded with a scarlet D on his forehead.

Sasse is not alone in this. John Wayne Cornyn is up for re-election in 2020. I will be voting for his Primary opponent. Lord knows anybody would be an improvement.

Disruptive retards like Romney, Weld, Scott, etc. are why I don’t donate to the party. Only candidates.
