As Donald Trump and his administration openly flout the Constitution by refusing to submit to the House’s oversight authority, Jeff Van Drew’s refusal to support an impeachment investigation is a clear dereliction of duty.

Every day we get new information that supports the argument that Donald Trump and his Republican allies have been guilty of obstruction of justice, but also of abuse of power, corruption, fraud and multiple criminal acts concerning campaign finance laws.
Jeff Van Drew said in an interview, “I just don’t believe this rose to the level of literally impeaching him and removing him, and it will split the country, I guarantee that. We literally could have civil unrest. It isn’t worth it. Let it happen the natural way.”
The fact that Van Drew has resisted even supporting an investigation of the President, let alone mimicking Trump’s talking points of civil unrest should Trump be removed from office, should be a clear signal that he is not taking his oath of office seriously.
Jefferson is not only not putting country before party, he’s putting himself before the party. He is more concerned with re-election than he is with defending the Constitution he made a solemn oath to uphold.
Remember that when you’re standing in the voting booth, wondering what to do.
