Minnesota Rep. Peterson among only 2 Dems saying no to impeachment inquiry

Rep. Jeff Van Drew, D-N.J., an outspoken critic of the impeachment probe being led by Democratic colleagues on three House committees, said he doubts he will vote in favor of the resolution introduced Tuesday.

The House will vote to authorize an impeachment inquiry.

Van Drew mentioned he believes the inquiry will "extra divide the nation" without bipartisan make stronger.

The only Independent in the House, Rep. Justin Amash (I-Mich.), who left the Republican Party earlier this year because he doesn't like Trump, voted with the Democrats.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) said, "There are a number of Democrats that chose to vote the wrong way, and they should have voted no, but they won't be here to serve anymore come January of 2021".

Their votes are no shock as every were in the origin part of a community of Democrats who maintain no longer made public statements in make stronger of starting an impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump or maintain glorious posited conditional make stronger for it.

The resolution contains the set of rules that will govern future proceedings as the chamber continues its inquiry.

He called Thursday's vote is "unnecessary" and "widely misrepresented" in the media and by Republicans as a vote on impeachment.

The most recent Suffolk University/USA Today Poll taken between October 23-26 asked voters "If the House impeaches President Trump, do you think the Senate should convict him, removing him from office?"

Democrats say that Schiff is playing the role of Starr in the Trump impeachment, doing the investigative work that Starr did in 1998.

The president said his administration has been generating the greatest economy in American history, the highest stock market, and the best employment numbers and unemployment numbers in the history of the United States.

Van Drew's 2nd District supported Trump by 4 percentage points in 2016, a far closer margin than the 30-point shellacking that Democrat Hillary Clinton received in Peterson's 7th District in Minnesota.

"Now that the vote has taken place and we are moving forward I will be making a judgment call based on all the evidence presented by these investigations", Van Drew said.

Republicans have also raised concerns that Democrats will block witnesses. "We're going to finish our investigation and the public testimony and then as a deliberative body and in consultation with our constituents and our conscience and make a decision on whether the remedy of impeachment is warranted", he said. Rep. Justin Amash of MI, who is an independent and left the Republican party earlier this year, voted in favor.
