The Daily Caller co-founder and Fox News host, however, doesn't support the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry.

In an op-ed written with fellow Daily Caller co-founder Neil Patel, Carlson wrote that "Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent, Joe BidenJoe BidenHarris to travel to Texas Friday after polls show tie between Trump, Biden Florida heat sends a dozen Trump rally attendees to hospital Harris more often the target of online misinformation than Pence: report MORE."

"Some Republicans are trying, but there’s no way to spin this as a good idea," he added. 

But Carlson said he doesn't view the call as an impeachable offense, even if he doesn't condone it.

Carlson asserts that it is "hard to argue" that Trump's behavior is worthy of impeachment.

"The president did not, as was first reported, offer a quid pro quo to the Ukrainians," Carlson wrote.

"He did not condition any U.S. support on a Biden investigation. The Justice Department has already looked at the totality of the call and determined that Trump did not break the law," he added.

The conservative commentator wrote that ultimately it's up to the American people to decide the fate of Trump through the upcoming election.

"America’s founders set up a pretty good system to have just this sort of debate every four years: It’s called an election," Carlson said.
