Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse said Friday morning that he would be open to considering articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump.
“If they come together and have a process, I will definitely consider what articles they might move, because as I told you I believe the president has disregarded his oath of office,” Sasse said on “CBS This Morning.”
“He swore an oath to the American people to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution,” Sasse added. “He acted against that. What he did was wicked.”
Sasse did, however, question whether impeachment was best for the United States, given that President-elect Joe Biden takes office in less than two weeks.
“The question is more of a prudential question. What’s the best thing for America in 2022 or 2032? The question isn’t what’s best for Donald Trump,” Sasse said.
