‘The last 24 hours has really forced me to review all of this…’
(Associated Press) Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who ran against President Donald Trump in the 2016 Republican primary, says he supports impeaching the president.
Kasich said on CNN that the “final straw” for him was when acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney acknowledged Thursday that Trump’s decision to hold up military aid to Ukraine was linked to his demand that Kyiv investigate the Democratic National Committee and the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.
Mulvaney later said his remarks were misconstrued.
Kasich said Friday: “The last 24 hours has really forced me to review all of this.”
Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives are conducting an impeachment inquiry sparked by an anonymous whistleblower’s complaint that Trump pressed the president of Ukraine to investigate allegations of corruption surrounding political rival Joe Biden as he delayed military aid to the country.
