Two GOP Governors Back Impeachment Inquiry

September 28, 2019   |   by James G. Dalton

Two Republican governors back the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, reports The Washington Post.

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott became the first Republican governor to do so, calling the probe “appropriate.”

Later, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker told reporters the situation was “deeply disturbing.”

“I think the proper role and responsibility for Congress at this point is to investigate it and get to the bottom of it,” he said.

Scott cautioned impeachment was a “very serious issue and should not be taken lightly or abused.”

But he still backed the probe.

“I think we have much more to learn and need to understand all the facts as this serious allegation is considered,” Scott told the Post. “Congress has a solemn responsibility to every American to fulfill its role in our government system of checks and balances.”

Trump in a summer phone call with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky asked for help in investigating Biden and his son, Hunter. In the days before the call, Trump ordered advisers freeze nearly $400 million in military aid for Ukraine.

Trump has denied allegations of a quid pro quo, though his actions have prompted speculation he was holding out the money as leverage for information on the Bidens.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced an impeachment inquiry Tuesday.

      These two Governor’s (Scott and Baker) are yellow belly, scared, sick and and are probably being paid “SORO’S” and by the rest of the “DEMORATS” to go along with them. I hope the people of their state VOTE THEM OUT. If they won’t help the President in time of need, what will they do when a serious situation comes up????? Probably run and hide behind “PELOSI” and the rest of the RATS.. WHAT A SHAME….

      YOU ARE SO RIGHT. REPUBLICAN LEADERS, SENATORS AND GOVERNORS BETTER GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND START STANDING UP FOR OUR PRESIDENT. THERE ARE SO MANY REPUBLICANS IN OFFICE YOU JUST CAN’T TRUST. IF THEY GO AGAINST THE PRESIDENT THEY SHOULD GO.

      SCOTT AND BAKER MIGHT AS WELL BE DEMOCRATS. IF THEY CAN’T STAND UP FOR OUR PRESIDENT THEY SHOULD NOT BE RE-ELECTED. LETS JUST CALL THEM TRAITORS.

        Your are 100%, correct, when a sitting ELECTED OFFICIAL IS INAUGURATED?, into a Position!, REGARDLESS !, & THAT OFFICIAL has accomplished “WHAT”, President Trump has!, “ANY-PERSON THAT IS IN HIS ADMINISTRATION THAT IS NOT “LOYAL TO HIM “, needs to be “FIRED”, as what happened to “MATTIS & BOLTON “ !. I believe THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP ON DAY ONE , should have “DIRECTED “, the CHIEF OF STAFF to CLEAN HOUSE OF “ALL”, of the REMAINING OF THE “OBAMA’S administration ! , with NO EXCEPTIONS . GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP.

    This is out and out BS being led by the most corrupted people in white house’s DEMON RATS I’ve ever been a witness to since I’ve been of voting age. DEMON RATS are hell bent to destroy our country. The DEMONS have shredded our constitution or burn it like the American flag…… total disrespect to all people of America and especially our duly elected President and his family. There is something sickening about the Demon Rats this year. Not only this year but for many years past. You need to get rid of the demon rats and let Trump do what he was elected to do. I will continue to support my President snd and I am looking forward to the 2020 elections
    Needless to say but I am casting my vote for Trump in 2020. God bless you President Trump and stay strong.

    What is it about some Republican leaders that at the first whiff of Trump difficulty they have to immediately jump into the matter issuing stupid statements they think will help them and hurt Trump? These 2 governors, Phil Scott and Charlie Baker, should be voted out of office if for no other reason than they lack all common sense and act out of self interest not their constituents or nations best interest. Trump asked for a FAVOR several days after deciding to release funds to Ukraine. Sen. Biden and his son didn’t ask for the firing of a prosecutor they DEMANDED he be fired or $1 billion of aid to Ukraine was going to be denied AND the Ukraine had 6 hours to decide. We’ve all see Joe Biden saying this, yet nobody has demanded ONE hair from his scalp. These 2 governors are about as stupid as you can find. Sen. Biden needs to prosecuted!!!!

    What the Democrats have done to our President since the election is truly a disgrace and is a “COUP” no doubt about it! This President has done more for this country in his term in office than any other President elected. The President has said all along, he plans to drain the SWAMP, and boy do we need that. That’s the “REAL” reason they hate the President so much, as they all fear that he will expose “ALL” those who have been and are, “CORRUPT”. It’s definitely time for a change in this country so we can rid the disease that’s inflicted all of us for far too long. If we do NOT address all this NOW, then WHEN, and the so-called “COLD” Civil War brewing, will become a “REAL” Civil War and those who think this could never happen, have their heads in the ground. Our generation has been so fortunate to have lived in these times, but if we allow all this complicity to continue, then I’m afraid, we could in fact be witness to another Civil War in this country. Enough is Enough! PS- Republicans need to start acting like leaders and stand behind our President and start pushing back on these corrupt Liberal, lifers who’s only goal was and is to build wealth for themselves and NOT the People they were suppose to serve as well.

    I recall a Secretary of State that exhorted money. She sold the possibility of getting help from the US. They donated to the Clinton Foundation. Yes, once again the Clintons are bulletproof. I think the dimocrats should remember “he without sin cast the first stone” there would be no stones thrown by the Nancy PELOSI Circus.

    President Trump needs the backing of all Republicans in the Senate and House. If you can not back our President you should not call yourself a REPUBLICAN call yourself a TRAITOR. If you are so dumb you can’t see what Democrats have done and are doing you should not be a Republican Senator or Governor. TRAITORS. That is why DEMOCRATS get away with everything they do, they stick together right or wrong. REPUBLICANS DO NOT STICK TOGETHER AND STAND UP FOR OUR PRESIDENT. ANY REPUBLICAN SENATOR OR GOVERNOR WHO GOES AGAINST THE PRESIDENT SHOULD NOT BE VOTED FOR AGAIN WHEN HIS OR HER REELECTION COMES UP.

    Anyone in the Republican Party that cannot support the President cannot be trusted. We know the likes
    of the unworthy Dems cannot be trusted but, the Republicans that support them. Shameful.
    I support my President and he will be reelected by a landslide and that is why crying, low life

    Trump or Socialism and nothing short of that so apparently these governors are choosing Socialism for their state. I wonder what the residence of their states feel about that decision.

    Gov Baker was against President Trump from the beginning, he wouldn’t even vote for him. I think he should just be a Democrat and call it a day.
