Everywhere we turn this week, the subject is impeachment.
Not mental health as it pertains to mass shootings. Not healthcare in general. Not the trade war with China. No, those things are gone with the wind. Instead, we have yet another liberal lurch toward anarchy and unrepentant usurpation of the President of the United States.
Given that there are still nineteen candidates vying for the democratic nomination in 2020 it comes as no surprise that their opinions on the matter would soon be evolving to position them well among likely voters.
One of the dark horse candidates in the race, Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, has now flip-flopped on the subject, leaving many to wonder if this is her true belief or merely an attempt to score political points.
“Up to this point, I have been opposed to pursuing impeachment because it will further divide our already badly divided country,” Gabbard said in a statement. “However, after looking carefully at the transcript of the conversation with Ukraine’s President, the whistleblower complaint, the Inspector General memo, and President Trump’s comments about the issue, unfortunately, I believe that if we do not proceed with the inquiry, it will set a very dangerous precedent.”
This swift shift in opinion comes less than two days after Gabbard made headlines for bucking the Democratic trend on impeachment and imploring the nation to settle the issue of Trump’s fitness for office at the ballot box.
The Hawaii House Rep. is currently polling at less than 1% nationally, according to Real Clear Politics.
