Democrat Rep. Jeff Van Drew (NJ) responded to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to move forward with impeaching President Donald Trump on Thursday by cautioning his party, warning them that what they are doing is tearing the United States apart.
CNN’s Manu Raju spoke with Van Drew about Pelosi’s decision, writing on Twitter: “Rep. Jeff Van Drew, one of two Democrats to vote against formalizing the impeachment inquiry, told me he plans to vote against all the articles of impeachment ‘unless there’s something that I haven’t seen, haven’t heard before.'”
Van Drew told Raju that Democrats should “be careful what [they] wish for” because impeachment “is tearing the nation apart.”
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."— Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 5, 2019
Van Drew is one of only two Democrats who have given definitive no answers on impeachment.
In an interview on Sunday with USA Today, Van Drew echoed similar sentiments, saying that he opposes removing the president.
