Most Americans will see that Democrats’ efforts to impeach the president based on a partial transcript of his phone conversation with the president of Ukraine is unwarranted, Hawaii Democrat Rep. Tulsi Gabbard said Wednesday.

In an interview with Hill TV, Gabbard was asked if reading the transcript changed her mind on impeaching Trump. “It hasn’t,” she replied.

Gabbard then cautioned that impeachment may well backfire on Democrats:

“Most people reading through that transcript are not going to find that extremely compelling cause to throw out a president that won an election in 2016.

“And, instead, what I think what most people will see is, hey, this is another move by Democrats to get rid of Donald Trump – further deepening the already hyper-partisan divides that we have in this country. And, that’s really where I’m coming from.”
