Washington Examiner reports Kasich, 67, said that the tipping point for him occurred on Thursday when acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney admitted that there was a quid pro quo agreement between the United States and Ukraine involving military aid that had been approved for the foreign country.
“It pushed me really across the Rubicon,” Kasich stated, during a Friday afternoon appearance on CNN. “Withholding military aid, vital military aid to a nation like Ukraine, which has Russian troops inside its territory that’s threatened all the time, that withholding it so that a political operation can take place, investigate this thing around the server … To me, it’s totally inappropriate.”
