2020 Democratic presidential primary candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) called for the country to move on after Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s bombshell report revealed that President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign did not collude with the Russian government.
Speaking with Fox News on Sunday, Gabbard stated that she “supported” Mueller’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election but that it was time to move away from it, as the report revealed that the president did not engage in criminal conspiracy with the Kremlin to win the 2016 presidential election.
She also called on the country to move past the report and address the “issues” at the “forefront” of the American people’s minds.
“The conclusion that came from that Mueller report was that no collusion took place. Now is the time for us to come together as a country to put the issues and the interests and the concerns that the American people have at the forefront and take action to bring about real solutions for them.”
“I don’t think we should defeat Donald Trump through impeachment,” the Hawaii Democrat added. “I think it’s really important for us in this country to come together and have the American people vote to take Donald Trump out of office in 2020.”

Gabbard’s comments came as a stark divergence from some of her fellow 2020 primary opponents.
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), for example, called for the House to begin impeachment proceedings against Trump while on the campaign trail on Friday. She said Saturday, however, that she had not discussed the idea with Speaker of the House Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) or “any other Democrat.”
The 2020 Democratic presidential primary field grew another person larger on Monday when Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton announced his candidacy, bringing the grand total of people in the primary to 20, but counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway was quick to dismiss the additional competition.
