Nadler Lashes Out At Rep Who Has Come To His Senses
The House Judiciary Committee has voted forth articles of impeachment against the president and on December 18th the full House will be voting to see if this baseless accusation moves on to the Senate. But it appears the Dems will not have everyone on board when it comes to the full House vote, as Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey is against impeaching the president, so much so that he is planning on changing over to the GOP. Dems are not happy about the lack of loyalty and Nadler spoke out against Drew over his planned party change.
“House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., brushed off reports that Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey plans to leave the Democratic Party to become a Republican.
“What he’s reacting to is public polling that shows he can’t get renominated,” Nadler said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” “His electorate in his district is 24 percent to renominate him and 60 percent to nominate somebody else.”
Van Drew — who has spent months criticizing fellow Democrats for their push to impeach Trump — met with Trump on Friday to discuss going across party lines. He is one of only two Democrats who voted against opening an impeachment inquiry into Trump and has remained a fervent voice in opposition to impeaching the president.”
Trump praised Drew’s transition.
“Van Drew, who was his party’s most vocal opponent of impeaching Trump, made the decision to leave the Democrats after a personal meeting with Trump on Friday. The congressman had begun informing some of his staff later that day, but didn’t want it to be public until the following week. But by Saturday, the news had leaked.
Multiple senior Democrats tried to reach out to the New Jersey freshman on Saturday but were unsuccessful.
Van Drew flipped his GOP district in southern New Jersey, helping deliver Democrats the House majority. The district, which still leans Republican, voted for Trump in 2016.”
Looks like he this is a Dem that wised up that doesn’t happen every day. If only we could get the rest of the House Dems to see reason.
