To the Editor: I am very disappointed in Governor Sununu; more than that — embarrassed by him. Recently, the governor told an interviewer that he didn’t think that President Trump should face an impeachment inquiry. He dismissed as “a circus” the work of the House Intelligence Committee that has revealed that the President withheld military aid to Ukraine in order to pressure that government to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.
The reporter, to his credit, then asked the governor if it was appropriate or ethical for Trump to push the Ukrainian president to investigate Hunter Biden. Sununu replied, “If he truly asked a foreign power to look into a political opponent that’s a very inappropriate thing to do, absolutely.”
Well, it’s clear from the testimony of several government officials, including Trump appointees, that the President did exactly that: pressured a foreign government to interfere in our elections for his own benefit. In fact, President Trump has already said publicly that he asked for Zelensky to investigate Biden. He’s admitted to the crime.
Sununu went on to reveal that he has not read the transcript released by the White House of the conversation between the two presidents. How embarrassing. How can our governor have an informed opinion if he isn’t interested in the facts? Does he even know that moderate Republicans such as former Ohio Gov. John Kasich are now calling for Trump’s impeachment?
Governor Sununu may campaign as a moderate, but he is far from one. And that’s a fact.
