Freshman GOP Rep. admits voting for impeachment may have ruined his career

A shocking number of Republicans have fallen all over themselves in order to let the world know that they disapprove of Donald Trump in the wake of early January’s Capitol riots.

One freshman Congressman, Rep. Peter Meijer (R-MI), has already confessed that he realizes his vocal stance in favor of impeaching Donald Trump on the grounds of incitement of a riot may cost him his political career — at least in his home state of Michigan. 

Trump voters — which make up the vast majority of Republican voters, despite what RINOs want you to think — don’t want their representatives to capitulate to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) agenda of political retribution, but dozens of GOP lawmakers did just that, and their constituents aren’t likely to forget.

Meijer told ABC’s Georgi Stephanopolous on Sunday that he realizes his constituents may disagree with his decision to support impeachment, but he believes that he has the moral high ground.

“I may very well have,” Meijer responded. “But I think it’s also important that we have elected leaders who are not thinking solely about what’s in their individual self-interest, not what is going to be politically expedient, but what we actually need for the country.”

Meijer, who was sworn in only days before the Capitol riots, indicated that he believes the GOP should move past Trump after the incident.

“I think it’s time that we acknowledge that what happened on Jan. 6 was a betrayal of what had been accomplished over the past four years,” Meijer commented. “That it was a culmination of a politics that at all too often, you know, fanned flames rather than focusing on building and governing.”

Nearly a dozen GOP Representatives joined Meijer in voting for impeachment, infuriating the GOP voters they were elected to represent.

A recent poll found that a whopping 76 percent of Republican voters — and 80 percent of Trump voters — are less likely to vote for a Republican candidate that endorsed impeachment.

Maybe Republicans will be more careful in whom they choose as their representatives from now on.

    1. OH my GOSH, keeping the news going friend a lot of People did not know that,,,just maybe the Republicans will win yet……..

      1. You better hope they do because the communists about to take over are going to make life miserable in America for all of us. To them you are only a useful idiot.

      1. Right On! I am discussed with the Republicans and I hate the evil Democrats. President Trump is my President

    2. It has now been disclosed that the F.B.I. new that something was being planned a week before the riot. Trump could have been in Florida playing golf and it still would of happened. Pelosi new she had to rush the impeachment, and did. Now we have an impeached President on know evidence! Just like the last impeachment.

    1. I’ll SECOND THAT Statement . Peloski aka Pollack aka Pelosi will lose her seat soon I hope when the Chips fall on the RUSSIA FAKE WITCH HUNT , CHINA JOE’S CON JOB , Hunter boy’s Screw up with Daddy-O.

  2. All these phony RINOs tried to do is a CYA move to protect their position….and mostly because they hate Trump who did more in 4 years for the country and real Americans than Obozo did in 8. They deserve the butt kicking they get.

  3. My feelings are for all of those 10 reps
    be expelled from the Republican Party support the President of get out of the party! I will not donate any money until the snakes are gone!

    1. I absolutely agree with you All of those who voted against Trump and for Impeachment!! WILL BE LOOKING FOR NEW JOBS WE WILL MAKE SURE OF THAT

    2. We supported them like an Idiot, they all need A double S kicking they are still begging, they failed us when they, messed with Trumpy Bear

  4. Well, I’m glad he’s sorry. I still hope the voters can find a more reasoned candidate to take his chair.

    1. I don’t think he is sorry he voted for impeachment -he is just sorry he ruined his career!
      I’m glad all the RINOS are exposing themselves makes it easier for us to know who to vote out! All 12!!!! At least!!!
      And sone that can’t make up their mind !

  5. Stupid move……… just sorry because he might have ended his political career?????? How about being sorry because he was and still is WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very scary……..thanks for nothing…..

  6. At least he understands that his stupid rush to please the Democrats and Pelosi is going to cost him his political career. It will and it should. You just cannot make stupid decisions like this as the President did NOTHING illegal or even wrong. He ALWAYS said to be peaceful and obey laws, as opposed to Harris who gathered money to pay rioters bonds and that ugle person from Calif. who said to attack Republicans wherever and whenever they found them!

  7. Well, this Representative had to learn the hard way. First of all, you don’t start an impeachment the day after the event without any kind of investigation, evidence, etc. Now the FBI is coming out with factual evidence that Antifa and BLM are saying that they were the ones behind the entire event. It was just something the Democrats wanted to do to get rid of Trump. When will they learn.

  8. This moron GOP rep talks of the high ground – but he is so fning stupid he does not even realize it was a planned leftist attack from the get go and the FBI is not admitting it was; well maybe not the FBI but several in the DOJ have said it was. The FBI is so corrupt we need to fire every single member and start over from the top down. hey need to do what they are supposed to do and not support suppression of the truth and make up lies to help the left when they are told to do so. It’s time to clean house and the next GOP president had better clean house from top to bottom in all agencies or they will never get to the truth. We can’t have corruption in our DOB/FBI/CIA, etc. and get anything done right. This simpleton needs to go look at the actual phot0s and video and timelines that even CNN acknowledged as being no way can Trump be the cause of it.

  9. Rep Meijer is right that his political career is over. He and all who jumped on pelosi’s sham impeachment initiative without reading what President Trump actually said and without waiting for evidence on what really happened at the capital have displayed poor judgement and are therefore not fit to be members of the House or Senate.

  10. What you DA Dumocrats won’t acknowledge is that Trump supporters stand behind Trump because he supports the same causes we support. Are you crazy enough to think that if you treat this man beyond civility that it will change our minds? Think again. Number one…you should be ashamed of yourselves for being stupid and nasty. Number two…we still believe in America and her citizens and we intend to support her any way we can.

  11. You are elected to represent the people that voted for you and not to represent yourself or your own thoughts.
    That is why we are in the position we are in is you don’t REPRESENT “We the People”

  12. Amazing reaction to a decision of conscience by in intelligent West Michigan dutchman, unless, of course, you favor overthrowing the Constitution and ruling the United States by an Adolph Hitler type autocrat who is on a final binge pardoning criminals for donations to his personal funds. Sick, sick, sick. The UnAmerican Digest has you all wrapped up in its grotesque sticky fingers.

    1. If you thought you saw Hitler last four years, wait for the next four. What has been going on in DC is only the beginning. When Biden starts his crack down it wont end with those that did not vote for him. What Biden touts as [email protected] is police state communism. If you think Trump was an autocrat, keep your eye on this critter that you voted for. The fun has just begun. in six months you will have a chain around your neck, and you will be out in the cotton field pickin’ a way. by all means please enjoy.

      Communism=Democrat=Nazi=Rhino=BLM=Antifuka
      Democrat=A little critter that lives in a rathole
      Communism=Russia+China
      Nazi=another name for a Democrat ( Communist )
      Rhino=A big critter that runs around with a horn up its a$$ or a closet Democrat
      BLM=Burn, Loot, Murder little kids squad
      Antifuka=Anti Fukin American
      This is Amazons new business model, just like the snakes that inhabit that creek.

  13. Why are all these Dumbocrats crooks? I read an article today that California Gov (D) “Idiot” was givIng state cash out for votes! He’s also Nancy Pelosi’s nephew! And now this new GOP (R) decided to vote to Impeach our President!
    I can’t wait until Biden Is charged for impeachment for taking bribes from Ukraine, China and Moscow Mayor’s wife. He and “many” others need to be in Leavenworth and Gitmo.

  14. I have a question, kind of important….I want to know why conservatives that are being demonized and fired from there jobs do not sue companies for this. It is illegal to fire someone just for being a conservative. If companies can fire an employee for being conservative then they can fire them for being liberal too. Like I said conservatives should start filing law suit against companies that have such practices. and hurt their pocket book they deserve that at the very least.
    When someone points at a person and accuses them, then fire the finger pointer.

  15. Pelosi is right, we cannot move on until we have impeached ” Nancy Pelosi “. For the following crimes.
    1. Gross incompetence for failing to take care of the needs of the people.
    2. Negligence in the performance of her duties in protecting the people, the country, and the constitution.
    3. The injury and yes the death of citizens while she played politics with the stimulus relief bill.
    4 The use of her position as speaker of the house to conduct personal vendettas against people.
    I could go on, but I think that there is enough here to do to her what she wants to do to others.

  16. The main part of the Supreme Court’s job is OVERSIGHT, and if someone or some state is violating the constitution, then the court should step in, whether or not there is a complaint or brief filed in a lower court or the high court directly. If the court is not doing this, then the court is not doing the due diligence it is suppose to do, to protect the constitution. And if the court is not going to do its job, then it is up to we the people to do the job, and if we have to do the job then we just as well fire the court, we are the only ones that can. It makes no difference if a judge is conservative or liberal if the judge does not follow the constitution. The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government period, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow. When the government does not want to follow, then we the people have the right and the power to change or remove the government. I think that the court gets so tongue tied with the literal meaning of the law that it forgets what the most important part of its job is. OVERSIGHT.

    Since officials in a number of states have taken it upon themselves to make laws with out the legislative bodies in those states, that the constitution gives the legislative bodies the power to do. They are ignoring the constitution, and need to be reigned in. It is past time for the SCROTUS to do its due diligence, and step in, if the SCROTUS does not wish to do so, then we the people will have to do the job of the court, and we will not need the court.
    Liberals think that they can change the laws just by wishing it, and that is wrong. That is the way kings, queens, tyrants, and dictators rule. and that is why our forefathers wrote the constitution, to keep the corrupt from getting in power in government. That is why we have come to the point of needing to set term limits and to remove immunity that protects those that would try to abuse their position by creating greater transparency in the government.

    Just like they did with the Hunter Biden scandal, the fake news and the media, are covering up what states are doing to hide the evidence. It is not only in the so-called battle ground states. The governors and judges, and election officials in these states, are violating the law and the constitution of the United States, by making laws illegally, and suppressing the evidence, by refusing to allow ballots, and machines to be investigated. As much as I hate to say this the Supreme Court is condoning this behavior, by not enforcing the constitution. This is their job, to protect the constitution by enforcing it. The Supreme Courts job of oversight does not end because a case is not filed in a lower court. There is nothing in the constitution that says the Supreme Court it’s self cannot call on the DOJ or Superior Court to take action on such matters, and for it not to do so is negligence.
    As I have said before and will repeat.

    The constitution was not put there to protect the administration, the legislature, or the court, it was put there to protect we the people, from the government, by putting in guide lines for the government to follow.

    WE DON’T NEED MORE GOVERNMENT, WE NEED TO CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT WE HAVE.
    ——————————————————————————————————————————–
    U.S. Code Section 242 of Title 18, Deprivation of rights under color of law, makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties.

    Some states have gotten the idea that they can just change laws because they want to. However that is not the case, when a state becomes a state they sign on to the constitution and the bill of rights, and all of the laws contained with in the constitution. These are the over riding laws of the land, and apply to all states, and can not be just dismissed out of hand by any state governor, state legislature, or any state official, or local officials. It does not work that way. The constitution and the bill of rights can not be changed by any government body be it federal state or local. Changes to the constitution and the bill of rights can only be made by we the people. Not with E.O. or legislation by any governing body, or any whim of someone on the supreme court. This is to keep government from usurping the power of the people.

    The supreme Court is “appointed” to oversee the implementation of the constitution, and the protection of the constitution, by enforcing the constitution.
    Lately it would seem that the Supreme Court is neglecting its role of oversight, and enforcement. Which means it is not protecting the constitution.

    The Supreme Court is being negligent in its duty of oversight, of a number of states that have violated the constitution, by letting officials make laws illegally, instead of the legislatures in those states. This falls squarely in the scope of the Supreme Court. Whether or not any complaint has been filed in any other court or the Supreme Court Directly. This is the job of the Supreme Court in its roll of oversight, in the protection of the constitution. I am sorely disappointed by the Supreme Courts actions or lack there of, to do what is necessary to protect the constitution and thereby the country and the people. Trump thought he appointed three conservatives to the Supreme Court, I think he guessed wrong.

    1. An aside to this is that if the Supreme Court does not wish to enforce the constitution, it may not be long before the Supreme Court is no longer needed. Just a thought for the judges to think about.

  17. Dems, Repubs. all are establishment politicians, and there in is the real problem. You see people think that Trump was elected to drain the swamp. That is not true, as he can not do that. What he was elected to do was expose the people in the swamp, which he did quite well. Now they are out in the open it is up to we the people to clean up the swamp. I mean all of the parties ( Dems, Repubs, Indys ).

  18. Biden said that he could not trust the military so he had them screened by the FBI, what I would like to know is who screened the FBI. HA HA HBaheheHEhaaaaa
