Former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge: Trump’s Ukraine call left him ‘disappointed and troubled,’ says he won’t back
President Trump abused the power of his office by asking the leader of Ukraine to investigate Democrat Joe Biden, the nation’s first homeland security secretary said Tuesday.

Tom Ridge, who led the Department of Homeland Security from its creation in 2003 until February 2005, made the remarks in Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania capital, just a short distance from where Trump addressed a rally in Hershey later in the day.

“I am disappointed and troubled by the very fact that my president – and he is my president – would ask a foreign leader of a troubled country who’s been besieged by an enemy of the United States, to do him a political favor,” Ridge said at a renewable energy event sponsored by the Pennsylvania Conservative Energy Forum, PennLive.com reported.

“As far as I’m concerned, it is abuse of power,” he said.

Ridge, now 74, was a Republican governor of Pennsylvania from 1995 until 2001, when he resigned soon after taking the job of homeland security adviser to former President George W. Bush following the terror attacks of Sept. 11. The adviser job eventually evolved into the Cabinet-level position it remains today.

Ridge added that he thinks Trump’s handling of foreign policy has allowed other countries to assert their own agendas, particularly Russia.

And made huge loans to American politicians whose bankruptcies and bad credit made it impossible for them to borrow from American banks.

Ridge is a swamp creature. He began the process of privatization of Pennsylvania's energy grid, so F him.

“He made it clear that he won’t support Trump in 2020 and has said previously that he didn’t support Trump in 2016. He said his 2020 choice will be whichever candidate can bring “experience and demeanor and global perspective” to the job, be it a Republican or a Democrat.”

He’s a democrat in disguise.

This from the fucker that put equal opportunity black homosexuals in all the airports to feel up your as and sniff your shoes while doing nothing about the real terrorists living in the White House.

He was the head man behind that terror alert stock manipulation scheme they ran for 4 years after 9/11 that made Bush's cronies trillions.

Like he has any right to accuse anybody of abuse of power. This fuck and the entire Bush administration should have been executed for what they did.

On top of that trump suggested the ukraine look into ” Biden......the son"

Not joe biden or the bidens.

He specifically referenced his son and qualified the reason to be because joe biden extorted the president of the ukrain to stop the investigation.

Joe Biden was never referenced as a target for investigation.

I read the transcript in full myself.
