WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Kansas two Republican senators argued Wednesday that the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump arises from partisan opposition to the president and said it is preventing Congress from taking up important legislative business.
Sen. Jerry Moran said he cant yet draw conclusions from a whistleblowers complaint that disclosed a call by Trump in July to Ukraines president. A rough transcript of the call released by the White House before the complaints text became public showed Trump pressed for an investigation of Democratic rival and ex-Vice President Joe Biden and Bidens son Hunter.
Moran suggested the 2020 presidential election is the proper vehicle for deciding whether Trump remains in office and said some Democrats in the House have favored impeaching Trump almost since the day he was elected.
