Tulsi Gabbard defied the will of establishment Democrats and fervent liberals, casting a ‘present’ vote on impeaching President Trump in the Democratic Caucus. The House of Representatives passed an impeachment resolution on Wednesday night.
The Hawaii Congresswoman and Presidential candidate isn’t the only Democratic member of Congress to reject impeachment. Democratic Congressmen Jeff Van Drew and Collin Peterson went even further than Tulsi in actively voting ‘no’ on impeachment.
Gabbard is known as a critic of her party’s political establishment, and her refusal to get behind a sham impeachment resolution will only further incense party bigwigs who already have an axe to grind against the anti-war Presidential candidate.
Gabbard has previously wavered on impeachment, expressing differing views as to whether or not to support it. The dissident Democrat has pointed out that most Americans simply don’t care about the alleged byzantine process violations and bureaucratic jockeying leading Democrats have claimed represents impeachable offenses.
In a statement, Gabbard explained her rationale for voting ‘present’ on impeachment, staking out her opposition to President Trump but recognizing that establishment Democrats rigged a “partisan endeavor” for political witch hunt purposes.

Neoliberal Democrats took aim at Tulsi following her refusal to tow the party line Wednesday night.
I called @TulsiGabbard two years ago.
People attacked me. Hell folks like @VanJones68 rushed to her defense.
But man, did I have her number. https://t.co/mlTpNY3zIf

Gabbard’s far from a truly non-partisan or impartial Democrat, as evidenced by her refusal to fully vote against impeachment. But the viciousness of establishment Democrats toward any member of their own party who refuses to fully sign on to a crooked and totally pointless witch hunt with no chance of success in the Senate shows the total political bankruptcy of their party.
As Democrats maintain an unrelenting focus on nonsense involving foreign aid to Ukraine and deep state bureaucrats hoping to use their positions to take down Trump, Americans are tuning out.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.

It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
