Dem Rep. Jeff Van Drew: Impeachment “Is Going To Get Us Nowhere,” Democrats “Fractured The Nation”

And real quickly, we must understand the importance and the level of what impeachment is.  Hundreds of years of history; no one has ever been convicted of impeachment, and that’s the point.  We’re going to have an election next year.  Let’s have the election; let’s fight through the election.  Let’s do what Republicans and Democrats and whomever else does.  But this is going to get us nowhere.  We’ve spent millions of dollars, in my opinion, tons of money, tons of time, tons of hurt, fractured the nation apart.  I haven’t seen this to be a good thing, and now we’re dealing with all sorts of technical issues.  Most Americans don’t even understand some of these technical issues, and they just don’t know really what to think…

BARTIROMO: Congressman Van Drew, you were just saying why you voted against the impeachment inquiry. Does that mean you are poised to vote “no” on impeachment? We’re expecting an impeachment vote sometime in December. How will you vote?

VAN DREW: I would imagine that I’ll be voting “no.”

Now, I always, you know, have a codicil. If there’s something new, something we haven’t heard, something that really rises to the level of treason or, you know, a high crime, that would be different, but we don’t see that. We see little, different variations, hearsay, discussions. Somebody heard something that somebody else said.

Impeachment — you know that our founding fathers had vigorous debates of whether they would even allow impeachment in the Constitution. You don’t disenfranchise voters, millions upon millions of voters. Voters choose their leaders in America.
