Congressman Jeff Van Drew: My Democrat Colleagues Are Privately Concerned About Impeachment Proceedings

Democrat congressman Jeff Van Drew claimed this weekend that his colleagues are privately concerned over impeachment proceedings and simply want to “move on.”

Van Drew, one of only two Democrats to vote against the impeachment inquiry, said that members of his own party are voicing concerns over the circus behind closed doors.

Van Drew made the comments during an interview with Fox News host, Maria Bartiromo.

“There is some discussion among some of them [colleagues], quietly, privately, of concern certainly,” he admitted. “I mean, what I’m hearing out in the street is they’re kind of tired.”

“They’re kind of worn out. They’re kind of bored, most folks,” Van Drew added. “And they really want to move on unless there’s something new and amazing. We know the end game here.”

Fracturing the Nation

Congressman Jeff Van Drew didn’t hold back much of anything when it came to criticizing the impeachment proceedings being spearheaded by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff.

His view is that the American people should have the say in President Trump’s fate and that Democrat leadership is actually splitting the country apart even further.

“We’re going to have an election next year, let’s have the election, let’s fight through the election, let’s do what Republicans and Democrats and whomever else does, but this is going to get us nowhere,” he concluded.

“We’ve spent millions of dollars, in my opinion, tons of money, tons of time, tons of hurt, fracturing the nation apart. I haven’t seen this to be a good thing.”

Accuses Them of Disenfranchising Voters

Van Drew also noted something that Democrats used to believe about impeachment once upon a time – without tangible high crimes and misdemeanors, their effort to undo the election is a slap in the face of voters.

“You don’t disenfranchise voters, millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America,” the New Jersey Democrat chided.

It’s funny, top House Democrats would have agreed wholeheartedly with that notion if it were a fellow party member being impeached.

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, a driving force behind the impeachment of Donald Trump, once echoed the very same sentiments when Bill Clinton was the target.

“They knew quite properly that an impeachment of a president is an undoing of a national election,” Nadler argued.

“And one of the reasons we all feel so angry about what they are doing is that they are ripping from us, they are ripping our votes,” he added. “They are telling us that our votes don’t count and that the election must be set aside.”

Katie Hill Says Her Sex Scandal Is Like Trump’s Impeachment

Mary Margaret Olohan on November 13, 2019

Former Democratic California Rep. Katie Hill compared her sex scandal Wednesday to the impeachment hearings concerning President Donald Trump.

Hill tweeted comparing the proceedings to her own situation during Wednesday’s impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill. The former congresswoman resigned from her position as a United States representative Oct. 27 following the announcement of a House Ethics investigation into allegations that she was engaged in inappropriate sexual relationships with staffers.

Rep. John Ratcliffe is trying to say that because Zelensky publicly said he wasn’t being coerced by Trump means he wasn’t,” Hill tweeted. “Well, I denied any kind of abuse not just publicly but to my closest friends and family for years. This is no different.”

Hill has said she was unfairly treated after the Daily Mail published nude photos, photos which were allegedly of her, on its website. The congresswoman issued a cease-and-desist letter to publication Oct. 24.

We will not stand down. We will not be broken. We will not be silenced,” Hill tweeted following her resignation. “We will rise, and we will make tomorrow better than today. Thank you, and I yield the balance of my time for now, but not forever.” 

“It is with a broken heart that today I announce my resignation from Congress,” Hill wrote an Oct. 27 statement released when she resigned. “This is the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I believe it is the best thing for my constituents, my community, and our country.”
