Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is calling for President Donald Trump‘s censure on the eve a full House vote Wednesday on the articles of impeachment. The resolution, which Gabbard planned to introduce late Tuesday, suggests that the president put personal political gain over national interest. Gabbard has said she remains undecided on impeachment.
“I’m taking this time for myself to be able to review everything that’s happened, all the information that’s been put forward,” Gabbard told a crowd at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina, on Monday. “And just all the factors that go into really trying to figure out what what is the best action to take for our country. And for democracy. It’s not a simple or easy decision to make.”
She is the only member of the House in the 2020 Democratic presidential field eligible to vote on Wednesday. Although she remained undecided about impeachment, Gabbard told voters, “I think it’s really important that every member of congress cast their vote based on what’s in the best interest of the country rather than based on political implications.”
