Vermont Governor Phil Scott became the first Republican governor to endorse the Democrats' call for an impeachment inquiry against President Trump on Thursday.
Scott told a news conference that he was not surprised by the allegations that Trump repeatedly called on the President of Ukraine to "look" at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden because he had "watched over the years." Trump has asked Ukraine to try to try Biden to pressure the nation to fire its attorney general, who was investigating that the natural gas company was partly run by his son, Hunter.
However, Scott added that he wanted to see more information before taking further action. Earlier, the governor of Vermont criticized Trump for his attacks on progressive freshmen from the House in the summer.
"Like many across the country, I consider these statements offensive, racist and certainly not what we expect from the leader of the largest country in the world," he said, according to Valley News
Other moderate Republican governors still can't decide on impeachment. When pressed by reporters, the Ohio Gov. Mike Dwayne said Wednesday he was rejecting the decision. Massachusetts Government Charlie Baker and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan have not yet commented.
GOP EMPLOYER TO TURN TO THE SIDE (NOT CASH)
Scott's support came as the House Intelligence Committee pressed the acting director of state dealt with the complaint about Trump's remarks to Ukraine.
Cabinet Chairman Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Has already launched a formal inquiry into whether the House should pursue impeachment proceedings, but Democrats have not yet voted in favor.
