Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has said she’s not in favor of impeachment, yet last week voted yes for the inquiry, which seems like a flip flop on the issue. Gabbard was on Fox Business Network’s “Sunday Morning Futures” with host Maria Bartiromo Sunday to explain why she voted yes and says it was for “transparency.”
When Bartiromo asked why she voted yes, Gabbard answered:
“To get the facts. To get the information. There were serious questions and concerns being raised. The American people deserve to get some answers to those questions so we can bring out into broad daylight what exactly happened, gather this information – understanding that the vote that took place was a vote for more transparency as this inquiry continues.”
Bartiromo then asked about how the Democrats have treated Gabbard, to which she responded:
“Well, I think one of the issues has been that only those who are serving on the Intelligence Committee have had access to the different interviews and conversations they’ve been having. I think as this inquiry moves forward, once again, this is why I voted for that inquiry the other day, is to make sure that the American people actually are getting the information that only some members of Congress have been getting access to thus far.”
