It’s not wrong because the House has no legitimate reason to investigate Ukrainian controversy. Point’s not wrong because we’re in an election year.”
Later, he added “There is no good time for impeachment. No, it’s wrong because this is not how you impeach an American president. This case is not a case of the unknowable.

To impeach a president on this record would expose every future president to the same time of inchoate impeachment.”
