Statement on Jeff Van Drew impeachment inquiry vote by Egg Harbor Township Democratic Club

The Egg Harbor Township Democratic Club has issued the following statement about Congressman Jeff Van Drew’s October 31 vote regarding the impeachment inquiry. To contact our club, email us at ehtdems@gmail.com

It was extremely disappointing to learn that Congressman Van Drew was one of only two Democrats who failed to support House Resolution 660, which reaffirmed the impeachment inquiry into the wrongdoing by the President/Vice-President and some of the administration’s senior cabinet members. Congress is capable of working on important issues which affect people’s daily lives and conducting a thorough impeachment inquiry. It is a matter of right versus wrong and holding individuals accountable for wrongdoing. The Egg Harbor Township Democratic Club hopes the Congressman will participate and review the evidence as it is presented and hold the President accountable for any wrongdoing.
