Democrat Congressman Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) came out swinging at House Democratic Leadership today after Nancy Pelosi announced that she supports the Judiciary Committee moving forward with Articles of Impeachment against President Trump.
While en route to the floor of the House of Representatives this evening, Van Drew warned Democrats to “be careful what you wish for” and added “[impeachment] is tearing the nation apart.”
Van Drew is one 31 House Democrats representing a congressional district that President Trump won in 2016. If any of these 31 Democrats vote for impeachment their chances of being reelected with be severely compromised — are they ready to walk the Pelosi Plank?
Van Drew warned Democrats to "be careful what you wish for" and he added that impeachment "is tearing the nation apart. … And I want to bring people together." Van Drew said he would have preferred a censure vote so they could "move on."
