Tonight during the CNN and New York Times Democratic Party presidential debate, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI), shared her thoughts on the impeachment of Trump with CNN debate host Anderson Cooper.
“If impeachment is driven by these hyper-partisan interests, it will only further divide an already terribly divided country.
Unfortunately, this is what we’ve already seen play out as calls for impeachment really began shortly after Trump won his election.
And as unhappy as that may make us as Democrats, he won that election in 2016.
Serious issues that have been raised around his phone call with the President of Ukraine and many other issues around it are what caused me to support the inquiry in the House.”
Gabbard said she believes the inquiry should continue, saying all of the information they find should be supplied to the American people, saying, “If the House votes to impeach and the Senate does not vote to remove Donald Trump, he walks out, and he feels exonerated, further deepening the divide in this nation that we can’t afford.”

The leftist mob immediately responded to her remarks, saying she’s “clearly a republican.”

They called for Tulsi to be “fact-checked.”
Fact Check on Tulsi Gabbard: he did NOT win the election in 2016. That's at the heart of why we're here talking about this from the opening.#DemocraticDebate

CNN host Bakari Sellers told the guests on the panel, “There is no question that Tulsi Gabbard is a puppet for the Russian government.”
The GOP, for their part, reminded members of their party, that before they start having a love affair with the moderate Democrat, she’s still in favor of government-controlled health care.
Tulsi Gabbard’s support for government-run health care is haunting.
She supports putting Americans on a government-controlled health care plan—which would increase wait times and limit options for patients. pic.twitter.com/rt08pVdLV9
