In recent years, many Democrats with Trump Derangement Syndrome have taken up a very ‘you’re either with us or against us’ attitude.
This has been especially true on impeaching Trump.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida claims that he even overheard Democrats being threatened on the House floor.
The Daily Caller reports:
‘Active Threats On The House Floor’: Matt Gaetz Says Democrats Were Forced To Get In Line On Impeachment
Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz said Monday that he and others had heard “active threats on the House floor” against Democrats who might have been tempted to vote against impeachment.
Gaetz told “Hannity” guest host Gregg Jarrett that both he and Arizona Republican Rep. Andy Biggs — who also joined the show — had heard Democratic leadership threatening to withhold funding from anyone who failed to support impeachment.
“It’s a huge mistake for the Democrats,” Biggs began. There are people within the Democratic caucus itself that realize they have nothing and it’s done nothing but help President Trump solidify his position with people of reason throughout the country.
Jarrett followed by asking whether Democrats were angry that impeachment had been so rushed, only to stall as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to keep the articles of impeachment from the Senate.

Will the Democrats be called out by the media for this?
Don’t count on it.
