BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — WBZ political analyst Jon Keller says he believes every American should read the newly-released whistleblower report referring to President Donald Trump's call with the leader of Ukraine.
In an interview with WBZ NewsRadio's Nichole Davis, Keller broke down the whistleblower complaint—and discussed what he believes will happen next.
Keller noted that the report wasn't just about the improper conversation between Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky. It also alleges the administration improperly moved the transcript of the call to a highly-secure classified information server.
"I think the question that you're going to see Democrats and others asking, and the media asking in the coming days, weeks, and months is, what else is in that server?" Keller said. "What would we learn from it about the way this president does business?"
He also believes Republicans' response will be the most politically interesting thing to watch following the report's release.
"Without Republican support or participation, the impeachment process will be partisan, and it will appear highly partisan, and the public doesn't like that," Keller said. "And of course ultimately, if [Trump] were to be impeached in the House and goes on trial in the Senate for removal, there would have to be many Republican votes for that to ever happen."
As Davis and Keller spoke, Acting Director of National Intelligence Joseph McGuire was being grilled by the House Intelligence Committee about the whistleblower complaint.
"The key thing so far for me that he has said is that he thinks the whistleblower is credible, so, so much for the reflexive counter-attack by the president and others that it's some kind of partisan, deep-state mole who's just trying to blow up this presidency," Keller said.
