A congressman from New Jersey said that House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment is going nowhere and he is voting against it.
Rep. Jeff Van Drew has already said in the past that he didn’t see anything impeachable from President Trump and his view has not changed, as Townhall reported.
“I would imagine that I’m not voting for it,” Rep. Jeff Van Drew said to a reporter on Tuesday who asked him if he would vote for it.
“Obviously he’s going to be impeached here, and it will go to the Senate. I believe that in the Senate, he will be vindicated,” he continued.
“So we will have the same president and the same candidate who has now been vindicated,” he said to CBS News.
“I’m not sure that’s what everybody wants as a result,” he said of the entire impeachment quest by his Democrats.
“And I also think we’ve spent a lot of money and a lot of time and haven’t been able to get a lot of things done,” Rep. Jeff Van Drew also said.
Rep. Jeff Van Drew’s statement came after Nancy Pelosi announced that she would bring a resolution to a vote on Thursday to formalize the inquiry.
Reuters reported that the House is going to formally vote on impeachment this Thursday.
“The U.S. House of Representatives this week will debate legislation establishing procedures for the next phase of the impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump,” House Speaker Pelosi said on Monday.
In a letter to the Democrats, Nancy Pelosi said the measure would lay the groundwork for public hearings, which Republicans have been clamoring for, along with ways to set “due process” for Trump and his lawyers.
