Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted “present” on the articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, one of the sharpest splits she has made with the Democratic Party while seeking its presidential nomination.
Trump was impeached Wednesday night by a 230–197–1 vote in the House on the first article and 229–198–1 on the second.
Almost all Democrats voted for impeachment, with all Republicans voting against.
Gabbard was the only member of Congress to vote present on the articles, choosing explicitly to not vote for or against the charges, which accused Trump of abusing the power of his office and obstructing Congress.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also appeared surprised when she read someone voted “present” as she gaveled out the vote on the first article.
