Last week, Rep. Jeff Van Drew announced he would leave the Democratic Party and become a Republican because he’s bigly upset about the impending impeachment process of Trump.

Not only has New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy voiced his opinion about Van Drew’s decision, five of his top staffers have resigned stating they were “deeply saddened and disappointed by his decision.”
“Sadly, Congressman Van Drew’s decision to join the ranks of the Republican party led by Donald Trump does not align with the values we brought to this job when we joined his office,” according to the letter, which was obtained by POLITICO. It also states that “Trump Republicans” have worked to “aid and abet Trump as he shreds the Constitution and tear the country apart.”
The chief of staff — Allison Murphy, who began working for Van Drew when he served in the New Jersey State Senate — is not expected to leave. But there could be additional staffers who decide to leave this week.Politico:
