Another Domino Falls, House Dem Confirms He Will Not Vote For Impeachment Either

on

House Committee on Agriculture Chairman Representative Collin Peterson (D-MN) on Saturday confirmed that he is voting against impeaching President Donald Trump over his communications with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky unless some actual evidence, comes along that could change his mind.

On Saturday, Peterson told The Globe that “unless they come up with something between now and Wednesday,” he’s going to vote against impeachment and he expects up to five other Democrats to join him in rejecting impeaching the president.

“Maybe something will change. I doubt it,” Minnesota’s most senior member added.

From Breitbart:

The Minnesota Democrat said he believes that the president has “not committed a crime,” while most of his Seventh District constituents oppose the U.S. providing aid to other counties. He also noted the so-called “whistleblower” complaint — authored by a partisan CIA analyst — regarding President Trump’s July 25 telephone with the leader of Ukraine includes “second-hand” information.

The complaint alleges the president pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in exchange for aid. Both world leaders have denied any pressure was applied to launch the probes,and the White House published a transcript of the call as evidence no quid pro quo occurred.

“This is dividing the country for no good reason, because he’s not going to be thrown out of office,” Peterson said of his colleagues’ impeachment effort, before asking: “Why are we doing this?”

“If people don’t like Trump, they can vote against him,” he added.

Peterson’s comments came around the same time another moderate, Representative Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ), said that he opposes impeaching the president, and has already told his staff that he is planning to quit the Democratic Party and become a Republican.  Welcome home!
