Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D.) said Sunday he supported Democrats trying to impeach President Donald Trump, telling CNN he thought there were grounds to proceed on that front.
CNN host Jake Tapper noted Democratic voters strongly supported impeaching Trump if Democrats take back the House of Representatives in November, and he asked Patrick if he would support it.
“Yeah. If the grounds are there, then we should proceed, and I think there’s a lot of basis to believe that the grounds are there,” Patrick said. “But I don’t think that’s the first order of business.”
Patrick urged Democrats to serve as a check on Trump, in addition to saying business wasn’t getting done because of “extreme behavior” by a minority of House Republicans, an apparent reference to the conservative Freedom Caucus.
