Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on Wednesday dismissed the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump as “typical congressional behavior in this environment,” calling it “a shame” because “there’s a lot that needs to get done.”
“The behavior that I saw yesterday tells me we’re going to be embroiled in political infighting between now and November of 2020,” the Republican leader told reporters after a morning groundbreaking in Phoenix.
He said the partisan back-and-forth ignited Tuesday after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the inquiry was “not what (lawmakers) were elected to do.”
“People were elected to actually do the people’s business, and they’re falling short of that responsibility in Washington,” he said.
