Let me be among the first to say good riddance.

Officials said Saturday that Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey, a vocally anti-impeachment Democrat, will join the Republican Party in the coming days — delivering a political jolt to Democrats ahead of next week’s expected vote to impeach the president.
The decision, they said, came after Van Drew joined President Trump for a lengthy Friday meeting, during which Trump urged him to join the GOP.
Three Democratic officials familiar with Van Drew’s discussions in recent days said he has decided to switch parties; two said his staff was informed of his decision Saturday. The White House meeting was confirmed by a Trump administration official and one of the Democratic officials.
Personally I think that anyone who does not support the impeachment of Donald Trump also does not support the Constitution nor the rule of law in this country.
If there were indeed something wrong with the case made against Trum for impeachment this man might consider voting against his impeachment, however for him to switch parties suggests that he is making a purely selfish political calculation that I hope blows right up in his face.
