Republican Rep. Jeff Van Drew spoke out on “Sunday Morning Futures” after leaving the Democrat Party, calling the Democrats’ arguments for impeachment “weak” and “thin”
Per Fox News, Van Drew, who last week met with Trump following the congressman’s announcement that he was joining the Republican Party, said during an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” that he has been mulling over a switch to the GOP for a while, but impeachment was the tipping point for the former Democrat.
“There has always been something in my career that let me know it’s time for a change,” Van Drew said. “I feel good…I feel I did the honorable thing.”
Rumblings of a possible party switch in the midst of Democrat-led impeachment proceedings against Trump caused members of Van Drew’s caucus to accuse him of clamoring to cross the aisle in an attempt to save his bid for reelection and led to the resignations of five aides from his office.
