Watch: Kevin McCarthy Says House Dems Told Him They Want To Switch Parties
Very few Democrats are feeling hopeful in impeachment process. Many of them have expressed how the pursuit of impeachment this close to the 2020 presidential elections will ruin any chance they might still have at running against Trump.
So, we shouldn't be surprised to hear that some have admitted that they're ready to switch parties just to distance themselves from this entire mess.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has said some Democrats are starting to second-guess the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, as well as the direction the Democratic Party is going in, ET reported.
“I had a Democrat come to me today to tell me—he even questioned if he should stay a Democrat or reregister,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) claimed on Wednesday evening on Fox News. “He said, ‘This is not the party I know.'”
On Twitter, McCarthy elaborated, saying that “he was considering re-registering as a Republican.”
The person also told him that the “direction that they’re going is totally wrong.”
He didn’t name the lawmaker in question.
Republicans, during the House impeachment inquiry hearing on Wednesday, highlighted that witnesses Bill Taylor and George Kent didn’t have firsthand knowledge, or even second-hand, of the whistleblower’s allegations, which triggered the impeachment inquiry into Trump.

Can you blame them for wanting to change parties? This entire impeachment hoax has been improperly handled from the beginning. Not to mention all of the secrecy just adds to the illegitimate appearance.
Kellyanne Conway, White House counselor said “The hearings should have been public from the beginning. They can’t cure a bad process. The process has been ill-conceived from the beginning. ... Why would we try to be complicit in an impeachment inquiry when we don’t know what it’s about?”
All in all it's building up to be a huge embarrassment for the entire Democratic party so I can't blame anyone for wanting to jump ship. Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are making a mockery of them all.
