Rep. Moulton: 'Hard to Imagine' Trump's Actions Not Impeachable

Rep. Seth Moulton argued Wednesday if President Donald Trump's conversation with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskiy concerning military aid isn't impeachable, "I don't know what is."

"What the president has done is unconscionable," the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN's "New Day," while accusing the president of "leveraging military aid to an ally" that is "under daily attack from Russia."

He added, while commenting on the upcoming House vote to set parameters on the impeachment inquiry, that it is "hard to imagine" that Trump could have done "something worse."

“This certainly rises above what (Richard) Nixon did and certainly what (Bill) Clinton did, so, the idea that this is not an impeachable offense I think is crazy," said Moulton. 

Also on Wednesday, Moulton said he agrees with Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., for her slam on people questioning the patriotism of Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the National Security Council officer and Iraq war veteran who testified to Congress this week that he'd reported the Trump-Zelenskiy call after he found Trump's comments about military aid disturbing. 

"She's absolutely right," said Moulton, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. 

"When I served in Iraq, it was the officers who actually had the courage to speak truth to power, to step out of line when their bosses told them to do something wrong," said Moulton. "They were the most patriotic Americans I served with because that's what takes courage, to speak truth to power, to stand up for the Constitution when your boss, in this case, the president of the United States, is telling you to do something different."
