Democratic Senator Chris Murphy asserted Monday that Trump cannot be impeached for fulfilling his campaign promises.
During an interview with WFSB, Murphy responded to claims from fellow Democratic lawmakers and pundits that Trump is mentally unfit for office.
“I don’t see President Trump acting any differently as president than he did during the campaign,” Murphy said. “His speeches as a president for these rallies are just as bizarre as they were as a candidate, so I haven’t really seen any change in behavior.”
Murphy contended that while he finds Trump’s behavior to be “bizarre,” Trump can’t be removed just because people don’t like that behavior.
“He did win the electoral college despite this bizarre behavior as a candidate, so you can’t impeach somebody for doing what they said they were going to do as a candidate,” Murphy argued. “Whether we like it or not, he is fulfilling all of the very reckless promises…he made during the campaign.”
