Rep. Jeff Van Drew, one of the two House Democrats who voted against opening an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, has slammed the impeachment inquiry for being ‘something you would see in Europe or third-world nations.’
‘We have to understand, impeachment is something that’s supposed to be exceptionally unusual. It is supposed to be fair,’ Van Drew said on Fox Nation’s ‘Maria Bartiromo’s Insiders.’ ‘This has nothing to do with whether you like Donald Trump, or don’t like him, or want to see him have a second term or win in an election. This has to do with the institution of impeachment itself and not misusing it.’
On Halloween, House Democrats minus Van Drew and Rep. Collin Peterson, a Minnesota Democrat, voted 232-196 to open the inquiry, which is in full swing this week with eight witnesses appearing in public hearings before the House Intelligence Committee.
