House Democrat Is So Fed Up With Impeachment That He's Switching Parties

With the formal vote to impeach President Trump set to go down this week, there are signs that some Democrats are reluctant to go down on Nancy Pelosi's ship of fools. 

One of them is Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey who won his seat in last year's midterm elections and isn't going to sacrifice his career on the altar of Pelosi's hatred.

Now Congressman Van Drew is looking towards political self-preservation and shelter from the storm when the chickens come home to roost next November when Pelosi stands to lose her House majority. 

Van Drew has reportedly made the decision to switch parties in a move that has the potential to put a serious dent in Pelosi's impeachment dreams if any of the others in vulnerable districts wise up and get out. 

Via Politico, "Democratic impeachment holdout Jeff Van Drew planning to switch parties":

Rep. Jeff Van Drew, a moderate Democrat who is strongly opposed to impeaching President Donald Trump, is expected to switch parties and become a Republican, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

Van Drew is one of two Democrats who voted against opening the impeachment inquiry into Trump and has remained against the effort, even as the House prepares to vote to impeach the president next week.

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.”

Multiple senior Democrats tried to reach out to the New Jersey freshman on Saturday but were unsuccessful.

This is not good news for Pelosi and her commissars Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler who were prepared to wrap this lump of coal all up with a bow and deposit it into the Christmas stockings of Americans just before the holiday. 

How many can she lose and still send this scam to the Senate? Maybe the stampede is about to begin. 

On Saturday morning, President Trump lit up the Democrats on Twitter:

Pelosi has been counting on these Democrats in pro-Trump districts to fall in line like obedient and expendable drones and take one for the team. 

But what if they don't? 

It would be a wonderful Christmas gift if Pelosi is the one who goes down in flames if she is unable to put down a mutiny in the ranks.
