Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, called out Republican lawmakers for enabling President Donald Trump by voting against his impeachment.

Brown made his comments Thursday in an interview on CNN’s “New Day.”

He said Republicans are too afraid to speak out against Trump.

"I know what Republican senators say privately. They tell me this president doesn't tell the truth. They were very concerned about the Ukraine call, what led up to it.

“And because of their fear the president would turn on them, they said things like: ‘We know he'll get better,’ ‘Impeachment is a serious thing and the president will get better.’

“Of course, he wasn't. They know his character. First it was the prayer breakfast, of all places. All these senators that said he would get better stood and applauded him in the East Room-- when he continued his attacks.

“These are attacks on staff people and people he appointed, on political opponents on judges….  I mean, its unhinged, but I knew it would be.”
