Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) is expected to introduce a measure to censure President Trump, as the full House prepares a Wednesday vote on the articles of impeachment, ABC reports.

Why it matters: Gabbard has criticized the Democratic-led impeachment process as "partisan." She is among few House Democrats who are publicly undecided on impeachment.

How it works: A censure is a "less severe" alternative to removal from office, serving as a "formal statement of disapproval."

  • Andrew Jackson is the only president to have been censured.

What she's saying: "I'm taking this time for myself to be able to review everything that's happened all the information that's been put forward," Gabbard said Monday. "And just all the factors that go into really trying to figure out what is the best action to take for our country. And for democracy. It's not a simple or easy decision to make."

The Trump administration recently touted its approval of America’s first terminal on the West Coast to export liquefied natural gas. There’s just one problem: it probably won’t be built.

Why it matters: The project in southern Oregon faces political and business hurdles serious enough that those who are following it say it will be shelved. Its problems embody the struggles facing a once-promising sector that's now struggling under the weight of the pandemic and more.
