One Democratic hopeful isn’t hopping onto the Impeachment bus like the rest of them.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard(D-HI) doesn’t always toe the party line, and it seems that she is willing to say the quiet things out loud regarding impeachment — it’s incredibly divisive.
Joe Biden said that the allegation that President Trump exerted pressure on the President of Ukraine was an “abuse of power” but didn’t explicitly call for impeachment.
President Trump's actions are an abuse of power. They undermine our national security. They violate the oath of office. If we allow a President to get away with shredding the United States Constitution — that will last forever.

The vast majority of Democrats running to be the 2020 nominee, however, are quite keen on impeachment.
I called for impeachment five months ago, the day after the Mueller report came out. Trump continues to commit crimes because he believes he’s above the law. If Congress does nothing to respond, he’ll be right.
We must begin impeachment proceedings—now. https://t.co/aHbX63coJC

Donald Trump is the most corrupt president in the modern history of this country.
Enough is enough.

This is the smoking gun.
Donald Trump pressured a foreign government to work with his Justice Department to investigate a political opponent.

This story is stunning and should be shaking Washington right now—Donald Trump's moral vandalism disqualifies him from being president. As I've said before, it's time for impeachment proceedings. https://t.co/DSiv1kjxz1

Though many have been on the Impeachment Bus for a long time, Rep. Gabbard has said that impeachment is incredibly divisive.
During an interview on CNN, Rep. Gabbard reiterated her position that “the question of impeachment would be terribly divisive for our already very divided country.”
She said that she believes that President Trump needs to be defeated in 2020 and that she is the one who could do it. (That’s a bit of a long shot, Tulsi!) She said that she believes that Congress needs to “provide oversight” but that it’s really “the voters that need to make that choice unequivocally.”

This is correct.
This whole impeachment thing just looks like a reaction to 2016 and a preemptive strike on 2020 just in case it happens again.
With the stellar candidates that the Democrats are trotting out this time around, how likely is it that Trump is going to win in 2020 anyway, right?
52% APPROVAL !!! ???
