He should never have done that.”

“What is it we’re surprised by these days?” Kasich requested. “The president says things. He does things. It’s pretty shocking. So there isn’t much he could do that would, frankly, shock me,” he added.

Kasich warned that “if it becomes more and more serious, and more and more obvious that there was a quid pro quo, it’s gonna be real trouble for the White House,” suggesting Republicans in Congress might flip in opposition to Trump. He argued that his social gathering has at all times been extremely involved with problems with nationwide safety, such because the battle in Ukraine.

The former Republican governor did criticize Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi nevertheless, saying she had “moved too fast” by opening the impeachment investigation.
