'AT LEAST TWO DOZEN' REPUBLICANS IN HOUSE ARE 'DEEPLY CONCERNED' ABOUT TRUMP'S UKRAINE ACTIONS: CONGRESSMAN

BY JASON LEMON ON 10/6/19 AT 9:06 AM EDT

Congressman Brendan Boyle said on Saturday evening that "at least two dozen" of his Republican colleagues in the House of Representatives are "deeply concerned" about Donald Trump's actions towards Ukraine, although most have not criticized the president publicly.

"I actually have a lot of friendships on the other side of the aisle," Boyle, a Democrat who represents Pennsylvania's 2nd District, said during an interview with conservative CNN host S.E. Cupp. "I've been able to produce real, meaningful legislation with Republican colleagues of mine, especially as it relates to foreign policy," he pointed out.

Boyle went on to say that "a significant number of Republican friends" in Congress had "expressed their deep concerns" about the president. The representative explained that his GOP colleagues avoid criticizing Trump publicly because they know it would "put them in a really tough spot" when it comes to possibly facing a Republican primary challenger.

Although Boyle said he couldn't say how many Republicans would vote for impeachment "when push comes to shove," he asserted that behind the scenes "there are a number of Republican members who are deeply concerned and alarmed about what has become public" in regards to Ukraine.

FWIW. As we know, Republican concern and three dollars will get a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

2. It's a START, and we must appreciate it as such;

we're fools if we don't.

3. Time get past their moral cowardice and be more than concerned.

Wait, they are not concerned about Trump, but their Senate seats right?
