Merkley talks Trump impeachment during KOIN visit


The Democratic senator also talked about gun safety

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Sen. Jeff Merkley said President Trump’s efforts to discredit the probe into his phone call with Ukranian President Volodmyr Zelensky are nothing more than a “distraction” from the seriousness of the call to impeach him.

He said the president should not be reaching out to foreign government and leaders to interfere in the upcoming election, and that the American public agrees.

Merkley stopped by the KOIN 6 News studio Thursday afternoon and also talked about guns and gun safety.

He said even though Oregon has good background checks, they mean little if there is no national background check system.
