Congressman Jeff Van Drew from New Jersey is the odd man out in the Democratic Party with him opposing the impeachment efforts towards President Donald Trump. Van Drew has spent months disagreeing with fellow Democrats over their partisan witch hunt to push to impeach the president.
Sources have confirmed that Van Drew recently met with Trump to discuss the possibility of switching political parties. He is just one of two Democrats who had the gall to oppose the impeachment probe. Van Drew has publicly said that he would not be in support of impeachment and predicts that the impeachment will ultimately backfire on Democrats.
As you can image, Van Drew’s ability to embrace critical thinking has not gone over well in the Democratic Party. A fellow New Jersey Democrat, Gov. Phil Murphey, had harsh words for him and said his potential party switch is “cynical and desperate.”
“Jeff Van Drew has chosen his political career over our Constitution,” Murphy relayed in a statement. “Despite knowing full well that the president has abused the powers of his office, Congressman Van Drew is now willing to enable Donald Trump just to try to salvage his own election.”
He went on to say that Van Drew is a betrayer for going against Democratic values and siding with Trump.
Murphy, like most Democrats, has a cult-like mentality that shuns any room for critical thinkers. Looking at facts and evidence is not something leftists want and strive to keep their followers ignorant and uninformed.
Mainstream media sites such as the Washington Post and The New York Times have reported that President Trump had personally reached out and urged Van Drew to consider changing parties and that the Representative is actively entertaining the possibility.
While Van Drew had unfavorable words about Trump’s call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he did say that he did not see any evidence that would support the justification of Trump’s removal from office.
“You don’t disenfranchise voters, millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America,” Van Drew had said.
It is reported that Trump and Van Drew’s conversation broached the subject of the freshman congressman’s reelection. Van Drew was apprehensive about the high possibility that he would not be reelected because he is opposing impeachment in a liberal state.
“My job isn’t really to like or dislike him. My job is to exact as much goodwill and help for my district and for this nation and for this world that I possibly can while he’s president,” Van Drew said in a recent interview.
He continued to say what we all know is authentic, that impeachment is supposed to be bipartisan. It is so very far from being bipartisan and everything to do with increasing Democrat power.
The meeting occurred on the same day that the House Judiciary Committee voted in support of adopting two articles of impeachment. The two items are for abuse of power and obstruction that they say Trump committed. This will most likely enact a Senate trial starting in 2020.
Potential good news includes the reports that House leaders are preparing to lose as many as a half-dozen votes that would come from moderate Democrats. Especially in swing districts, there is an expectation that there will be more moderates who will vote against the impeachment sham.
There are currently 31 House Democrats that are in districts that were previously won in 2016 by Trump.
Despite this, it is evident that the Democrats will almost for sure have plenty of votes to initiate the impeachment in the House. The Democrats can lose up to 17 votes and still have enough to move forward with their power trip.
Adam Schiff is still pushing the impeachment insanity as he keeps his job as being the face of impeachment. He attacked his Republican colleagues for daring to side with facts and justice. He claimed that they are failing in their constitutional duty to agree that Trump has committed obstruction of justice.
There has been much-warranted speculation that Schiff and his staff has contact with the whistleblower. Due to this, many Republicans have repeatedly called for him to testify before the House Judiciary Committee to face these accusations.
It should not be too much to ask for representatives that were voted in by the people to actually try and work with the elected president to better the United States. They were not voted in to impeach the president for unimpeachable offenses.
The Democrats have entirely trivialized the constitutional process for political gain. They had all the confidence in the world that Hillary Clinton was going to achieve the presidency in 2016. When this did not happen, they immediately set their sights on destroying Trump and any Republican that got in their way.
It is disturbing and frankly disgusting to use the tool of impeachment to stunt for power.
“To use the power of impeachment on this nonsense is an embarrassment to this country,” President Trump stated.
We are at a point in time when corrupt and crooked politicians have taken over our political structure. Their wants do not reflect the betterment of the American people, but instead, they use their power to try and gain more control.
The corruption that occurred during the Obama Administration is still alive and well. It has continued to seep into every corner of Washington.
Going forward, it seems that Speaker Nancy Pelosi will hold the chamber-wide vote before the Christmas recess comes.
Despite the witch hunt, President Trump has continued to succeed. The agreement with the new U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal trudged on. More border wall budgeting was instituted. The long-awaited trade deal with China reached phase one making it a historic move. He has officially had his 40th federal appeals judge approved.
The stock market continues to skyrocket, and the American people continue to succeed under Trump’s presidency.
Despite having every excuse to focus solely on the impeachment surrounding him, President Donald Trump has continued to do the job he was elected to do. The president has had one of his best weeks yet despite Democrats’ best efforts to stifle that.
