ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. (AP) — Vermont’s governor has become the first Republican chief executive to support impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump but cautions that he wants to know more before any further actions are taken.

Gov. Phil Scott said at a news conference Thursday that he wasn’t surprised by the allegations that Trump repeatedly urged Ukraine’s president to “look into” Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden because he’s “watched him over the years.”

Other moderate Republican governors have yet to weigh in on an impeachment inquiry.

When pressed by reporters, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine said Wednesday he was withholding judgment. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan have yet to comment.

Scott has been a frequent critic of the president.

    • Hah keep dreaming . Remember when the republicans denounced him after Billi bush . Remb McCain ?
      You have a short term memory . You are like the boy who cried wolf with your impeachment nonsense Listen up mark my words Trump will not be removed from office . Give it up you loser . And you guys will just rally the base .

      Meanwhile Russia if you listening please hack bidens email . Time to play dirty !

      • Hey Archy, try a new message…this one is getting boring, and is comletely lame in the context of the Ukraine case. And…your “message” to Russia shows your true colors; hopelessly uneducated, with no understanding of the matters at issue in the impeachment inquiry.

        Put this in your pipe and smoke it: one of the officials who believes the whistle blower accusations have a reasonable basis is White House deputy counsel John Eisenberg, a Trump appointee and staffer

    • Proper ethichs is to do the will of the people and let trump be trump. As long as he is accomplishing and on a plicy level promotes ethics its fine what he does on his own.

  1. “…Proper ethichs (sic) is to do the will of the people…”

    A nonsensical proposition that barely sounds good when you say it fast. What would you do if the “will of the people” is to deny religious rights to Jews?

    I think what you really mean is as follows:

    1. I am all-knowing Archy, and my opinions represent the will of both G-d “the people;”
    2. If you disagree with me, you therefore are disagreeing with G-d and “the people;” and
    3. So, if you disagree with me (G-d and “the people”) you are evil.

  2. What would you do if the “will of the people” is to deny religious rights to Jews?

    You mean like the democrats? Deny our rights like ban kapparas, bris mila, shechita , force our bakers to bake cakes for gay weddings, force us to pay high Public school taxes but then not give us a penny for our won school costs even bussing or special ed?

    Either way right now the will of the people is to have maddog crazy guy in DC who is an ohev yisroel and good to us and who will rip apart all the BS like climate change and other erronus regulations as well as stack the courts with good judges. It’s not our job to think about what “ifs”. If that happenes then we’d be opposed to the POTUS

  3. They were crying Impeach him as soon as he took office. The phone call with Ukrainian leader was only 2 months ago. Ipso facto, they have no reliability on anything regarding impeachment. I’m not holding my breath.
