New Jersey Democrat Congressman, Jeff Van Drew, Will Switch Parties Over Impeachment Fraud…

Jeff Van Drew is a democrat congressman from New Jersey CD-02.  According to multiple media reports he is likely to switch to the republican party next week due to the fraudulent impeachment effort.  Van Drew was one of two democrats who did not support the vote for the impeachment inquiry.

According to Politico Democrat leadership are in a panic and urgently trying to get ahold of Van Drew.  The optics of a democrat changing parties at the same time they are trying to sell the validity of an impeachment narrative are terrible.

[…] Van Drew’s congressional and campaign staff were informed he was planning to switch parties on Saturday, according to Democratic sources. The question was now when, not if, Van Drew was joining the Republican Party, according to several Democrats with knowledge of the ongoing conversations.

As of Saturday afternoon, it was still unclear if Van Drew would make the announcement before the House votes on impeachment, which is expected Wednesday.

“It was supposed to be bipartisan, it was supposed to be incontrovertible. It was supposed to be something that was always on the rarest of circumstances,” Van Drew told reporters about impeachment earlier this week. “Well it’s not bipartisan.” (read more)

    Expect the “no” vote to rise. He’s not speaking generically about “incontrovertible” and “bipartisan”. He seems to be talking about what Leadership has told members…that they’ve been lied to. I’ll be interested to hear more from him.

    Van Drew’s is the only alternative to those of “The Dirty 30” who want to retain their seats. (“The Dirty 30” is Bannon’s terms for the first term Dem Congressmen who won in 2018 in districts won by Trump in 2016.)

    Regardless of their votes on impeachment, they are all gone in 2020. Unlike 2018, Trump will be at the head of the ticket and the Conservative base will be fired up by the sham impeachment.

    Also all but the 20% hard-core Dem voters will realize that any vote for a Dem congressman is a vote for Nancy Pelosi and another two years of gridlock and likely another impeachment. Even if their Dem Congressman voted against articles of impeachment in 2019, if he is re-elected in 2020 he will vote for the radical Pelosi.

    Hopefully Van Drew at least starts a trend of “no” votes among the more centrist Democrats.

    It would be great if he announced his switch to the Republican Party on the floor of the House when he votes no on impeachment. He can, and should, help lead the “Walk Away” movement.
    In addition to listening to, and actually representing his constituents, he was probably catching intense and hateful pressure from the left for his earlier no vote and siding with Republicans. That vitriol, (and threats I’m sure), may have been the final straw.
    May he be the first of many.

      But even if what you wrote were true, we don’t need this guy to vote like our best Republicans. Adding him to the Republican side means one more Republican and one less Democrat which will help in the Nov 2020 election when we try to get the GOP majority back.

      Each player (in turn) increases the heighth of the tower by removing blocks from a layer at the base (Foundation) and placing them above – to begin another layer at the top.
      One must be sure to keep the tower foundation sound/sturdy by not removing a block which will cause it to become unbalanced and collapse.
