Gabbard Flips, Backs “Focused” Impeachment Inquiry

The far-right Washington Times reports:

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Friday said she supports the House’s newly formal inquiry into whether to impeach President Trump, after she had repeatedly said impeachment would be too divisive for the country.

She said after reviewing the latest evidence and reports on Mr. Trump’s interactions with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, it would set a “very dangerous precedent” if the House didn’t proceed.

“It is unfortunate, but necessary, that I speak in support of the inquiry into the president’s alleged abuse of power in relation to his interactions with Ukraine’s leaders,” said the Hawaii Democrat and 2020 presidential candidate. She called for a “swift, thorough, and narrowly focused” inquiry.
