Democrat Congressman Jeff Van Drew made scathing remarks about his own Party’s leadership in an interview this weekend.
While speaking with USA Today, Van Drew explained that impeachment is being pushed by a “small, elite group” of Democrats during an election year for political gains.
“To some folks, that’s reminiscent of what was done to kings and queens many years ago,” he said. “Everything our country doesn’t stand for.”
In the same interview, Rep. Van Drew revealed that, despite being a Democrat, he keeps a picture of President Donald Trump in his office.
The picture is of Van Drew when he was a New Jersey State Senator alongside Donald Trump at the now-defunct Taj Mahal Hotel and Casino in 2008.
“(It is) Nothing really amazing,” Van Drew said. “It was a ribbon-cutting. He was very gracious. Very nice. Ivanka (Trump) was there. We talked for about 10 minutes.”
And the Democrat Congressman made it very clear that he does not support impeachment, nor does he take a personal stance against President Trump that has become commonplace amongst Democrat politicians.
Rep. Van Drew said, “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.”
Congressman Jeff Van Drew is one of 2 Democrat Congresspeople openly opposing the impeachment of President Trump. There are absolutely ZERO Republicans who have joined Pelosi and Schiff on impeachment currently.
Other Democrat congresspeople have begun wavering on their public support for impeachment following Adam Schiff’s probe and polls moving in favor of President Donald Trump.
