Here’s what he said.
According to Fox News, Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-N.J., defended his exit from the Democratic Party after he voted against both articles of impeachment – calling the Democrats’ arguments for impeaching President Trump “weak” and “thin.”
“There has always been something in my career that let me know it’s time for a change,” Van Drew said. “I feel good…I feel I did the honorable thing.”
“The final sign for me was, oddly enough, when one of the county chairmen said ‘you have to vote for impeachment,’” Van Drew said. “And that ‘If you don’t, you won’t be able to run in my county.’ It’s not his county, it’s everybody’s county.”
“This impeachment is a weak, thin impeachment,” he said. “It’s been a long, dark shadow on our country.” You can read the full article here.
