Dozens of protesters demonstrated against impeachment in front of Rep. Andy Kim’s district office Thursday.
“With this impeachment witch hunt, Reps. Kim, Sherrill, Gottheimer and Malinowski are putting politics before facts and they have no credibility,” Nutley Commissioner Steve Rogers, an adviser for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, said. “They reneged on their promises, and they are working against America and against New Jersey by siding with the far-left socialist agenda.”
House Democrats have launched an impeachment inquiry against Trump over a phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Trump asked Zelensky to investigate the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, a leading Democratic presidential candidate.
Most of New Jersey’s House members have backed an impeachment inquiry over the incident, which they fear was an improper use of the president’s authority for personal gain.
Rogers doesn’t share their concerns.
“It’s been clear from the start that the Democrats’ efforts are solely based on tearing down President Trump — not about finding the facts,” Rogers said. “What the Dems are tearing down is our country, not Trump.”
