Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich who ran for the GOP nomination in 2016, is weighing in on whether or not President Trump should be impeached.
During a press conference, White House acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitted to a quid pro quo between the United States and Ukraine and that’s what changed Kasich’s mind on impeachment.
“Withholding military aid, vital military aid to a nation like Ukraine, which has Russian troops inside its territory, that’s threatened all the time, withholding it so that a political operation can take place – ‘investigate this thing around the server, and we’re going to withhold the aid until you do that’ – to me, it’s totally inappropriate. It’s an abuse of power.” Kasich said on CNN.
"Does this rise to the level of impeachment? I now believe it does… I say it with great sadness."
