Don’t forget that Van Drew is expected to switch his party affiliation to Republican after major backlash from his constituents and the state’s governor.

The House officially voted for impeachment as the president spoke to 5,400 people at his Battle Creek, Michigan rally tonight.

Prior to the vote, Trump said, “It doesn’t really feel like we are being impeached. The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong. We did nothing wrong. And we have tremendous support in the Republican Party like we have never had before.”
