Rep. Jeff Van Drew (D-NJ) and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) on Impeachment

Today, Dom led off the show by speaking with conservative democratic congressman Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey’s 2nd district. Van Drew, who replaced long-time congressman Frank LoBiondo, gave his surprising take on the House’s impeachment inquiry. Van Drew, unlike many of his Democratic colleagues, is anti-impeachment due to the effect it will have on his primary job: lawmaking. Van Drew told Dom, “I want to work in this last year and get some things done. We really truly can do it if we tried. It’s not going to happen now because Democrats and Republicans are going to be so angry at each other, we’re in a toxic environment. Somebody said, ‘well yes we can walk and chew gum at the same time.’ Of course we can, but that’s not the issue. The issue is that there’s going to be so much hate, so much anger, so much of a communication breach, that I don’t believe anything significant is going to happen and that’s sad.” Then, later in the show, republican congressman Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania’s  1st district called in to air his thoughts about the impeachment inquiry. “It’s been really unfortunate the course that this entire 116th congress has taken under Nancy Pelosi,” Fitzpatrick told Dom.

John Emmons | Congressional Challenger to Rep. Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA 6th District)

Also, John Emmons, who will be challenging Representative Chrissy Houlahan (D-PA 6th District) in the next election, joins Dom to discuss the slipping of Houlahan’s “moderate mask”. Emmons explains that in the last election, Houlahan proclaimed herself to be a moderate voice. Now, she’s a leading voice on Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment bandwagon.
