Sen. Claire McCaskill Reacts To New York Times' Anonymous Editorial

Sep 6, 2018

Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill says she’s uncomfortable with the anonymous editorial that ran in the New York Times this week.

The opinion piece was critical of President Trump’s actions in the White House and raised questions about his mental stability.

McCaskill said today that though she often disagrees with Trump, she hasn’t seen anything worthy of starting impeachment proceedings.

“If, in fact, there is someone high up in the president’s administration that has serious concerns about his competence, then I think to be taken as seriously as the subject matter, it would be important for that person to come forward.”

McCaskill also has secured the backing of the National Border Patrol Council. Its president, Brandon Judd, says McCaskill has been a "steadfast ally."
