Democrat Congressman Claims Some In His Party Are Having Second Thoughts About Impeachment

Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) told Fox Business on Sunday he has heard quiet concerns among House Democrats who represent districts President Trump won about the ongoing impeachment inquiry.

Van Drew represents New Jersey's 2nd congressional district, a district that went to Trump in the 2016 election. The congressman was one of the two Democrats who voted against the impeachment inquiry resolution.

Van Drew told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo he plans on voting against impeaching Trump when the time comes unless, "there’s something new or something we have not heard or something that really rises to the level of treason or high crime, that would be different. But we do not see that. We see little different variations, hearsay, discussions, somebody heard something that somebody else said."

"Impeachment as you know, our Founding Fathers had vigorous debate of whether they would even allow impeachment in the Constitution," he continued. "You don’t disenfranchise voters. Millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America."

Bartiromo asked Van Drew if there are other Trump-district Democrats who are going to be voting against impeachment.

"So I don’t know how other folks will vote because in all honesty, originally, I thought there was going to be a few more, not that it matters to me if I'm 1 of 101. I do what I believe is right," Van Drew replied. "But there is some discussion among some of them quietly, privately of concern, certainly. I mean, what I’m hearing in the street with most people is they're tired, they're kind of worn out, they're bored and they really want to move on."
