Congressman Peter Meijer may be coming to terms with the consequences of his vote to impeach President Donald J. Trump. Meijer told ABC News he doesn’t regret his vote, and he may “very well have [ended my career].”

Meijer told “This Week” that it is important America has elected leaders who are not thinking “solely about what’s in their individual self-interest.”

“The president brought some necessary energy,” Meijer said. “He brought some necessary ideas. He shook the tree. He was a change agent. The challenge was he didn’t know when to stop, and he didn’t draw a line, and to me, political violence is the line that we must draw.”

A chief strategist for Trump’s campaign predicted Republicans who supported Trump’s impeachment would likely lose re-election.
