Presidential candidate Democrat Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii has criticized the impeachment process. She voted ‘present’, choosing not to vote for or against. She said,

“After doing my due diligence in reviewing the 658-page impeachment report, I came to the conclusion that I could not in good conscience vote either yes or no.”
She said Donald Trump was guilty of wrongdoing but slammed the impeachment process as politically motivated.
