ICYMI: Sununu Ducks Questions on Whether Trump Should Be Removed from Office


In Case You Missed It, the Concord Monitor reported that Chris Sununu “continued to duck questions” over whether or not Donald Trump should be removed from office. This comes after notable Republican politicians -- including Republican Governors Charlie Baker, Phill Scott, and Larry Hogan -- have called for Trump’s removal from office.

Key points:

  • Still, the governor continued to duck questions over whether he would support efforts to remove President Donald Trump from office after his comments and speeches leading up to the takeover of the federal building on Wednesday.”

  • “The governor’s relationship with Trump has been trickier to nail down. Since 2016, Sununu has been broadly supportive of the president, telling reporters he supported him at multiple points ahead of the November election, even after a moment in a debate with President-elect Joe Biden in which Trump refused to directly condemn white supremacists.”

  • “But he’s been criticized by the Democratic party, who has attacked Sununu for not speaking out enough against Trump since the violence.”

  • “‘Chris Sununu owes Granite Staters an answer to this simple question: Did Trump commit an impeachable offense,’” Democrats wrote in a press release sent Monday.”

Again, I’ll let those bodies decide the path to take there. We have a couple weeks to go.” [...] The governor’s relationship with Trump has been trickier to nail down.
