Some Republicans in Congress are ostensibly in favor of impeaching President Donald Trump, but may vote against it because they are "paralyzed with fear" over threats, Rep. Jason Crow, D-Colo., said Wednesday.

Crow confirmed what GOP lawmakers have been relaying to reporters under the condition of anonymity in recent days, opening up about his discussions with colleagues in an MSNBC interview.


"But the majority of them are actually paralyzed with fear," Crow said. "I had a lot of conversations with my Republican colleagues last night, and a couple of them broke down in tears talking to me and saying that they are afraid for their lives if they vote for their impeachment."
