    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he’s now for impeaching Trump

    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich says he’s now for impeaching Trump

    POSTED 3:56 PM, OCTOBER 18, 2019, BY CNNWIRE

    Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich said President Donald Trump should be impeached, a major switch for a former Republican presidential candidate who had previously defended the President.

    Breaking from his party’s overall stance, Kasich, who’s a CNN contributor, told CNN’s Ana Cabrera Friday the “final straw” for him was White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney’s Thursday admission that military aid was withheld from Ukraine in order to pressure that country for investigations into Democrats.


    “But if you are asking me if I was sitting in the House of Representatives today and you were to ask me how do I feel, do I think impeachment should move forward and should go for a full examination and a trial in the United States Senate, my vote would be yes.” Kasich said on CNN’s “Newsroom.”


    The high-profile Republican said the events of Thursday afternoon — Mulvaney’s admission of a quid pro quo and the announcement of the resignation of Energy Secretary Rick Perry chief among them — caused him to rethink his stance.


    “The last 24 hours have really forced me to review this,” Kasich said.

    “When I look at all the information that is coming to us, and all the craziness that is surrounding the operation of the White House, now the resignation sometime this year of Secretary Perry and his involvement, it just goes on and on and on and on.”


    “I fought with people on the air about ‘Is there a quid-pro-quo?’ and ‘Does this rise to the level of impeachment?’ I now believe that it does,” he continued. “At this point, there is a big cloud and I think it has to be cleared.”


    While he admitted that it was “extremely difficult” for him to publicly announce support for impeachment, he calls on other Republicans to do the same who he believes “should at least be calling for an inquiry.”


    “If Barack Obama had been doing something like this, Republicans would be going crazy,” he claimed. “Now it’s their own guy doing it. What’s fair is fair.”


    Kasich urged Republicans to “look at yourself and say, ‘What do we expect out of the President? How do we expect the President to conduct foreign policy? Are there some lines that simply cannot be crossed?”

    “It is very difficult for a Republican to come out and say anything like this because they’re going to get attacked at home. …You gotta be willing to take the heat, frankly,” he said.


    Kasich did echo another party in line later on in the interview, calling for Democrats in the House to vote to formalize an impeachment inquiry in order “to get all the facts out there so that people can understand what’s at risk.”

    The House has already rejected wasting taxpayer’s money on impeachment. On July 17, 2019, the House of Representatives voted to kill a Resolution to waste time and resources to proceed with impeachment of the President.

    T
    he House, not Nancy-botox-Pelosi, has sole power over impeachment, and it rejected moving forward with spending time and resources on impeachment.

    Nancy Pelosi is ignoring the House vote that rejected moving forward with spending time and resources on impeachment.
