While the conflict between Russia and Ukraine is playing out all over social media, in real time, it appears another story has captivated Americans, the Biden administration, and the mainstream media. Approving over $13 billion in aid for Ukraine, the Biden administration is now dealing with claims that the United States helped fund secret biolabs in the worn-torn country. Although many Democrats have declared the story is nothing more than Russian propaganda, one of their own members, Tulsi Gabbard, isn’t buying the narrative.
On Sunday, Gabbard, who ran for President back in 2020, uploaded a video of herself to Twitter. In the video, which is featured below, the Democrat discussed the possibility of biolabs in Ukraine and what that means for America and the rest of the world. Using COVID-19 as an example, Gabbard noted that if a pathogen leaked from one of these labs, it could mean more than just another pandemic.
Shortly after her tweet, Republican Mitt Romney blasted the Democrat, writing, “Tulsi Gabbard is parroting false Russian propaganda. Her treasonous lies may well cost lives.”
Confused by the entire ordeal, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson discussed how the politicians consistently refuse to accept the biolabs theory when Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland stated before the Senate, “Ukraine has biological research facilities which, in fact, we’re now quite concerned Russian troops, Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of, so we are working with the Ukrainians on how we can prevent any of those research materials from falling into the hands of Russian forces should they approach.”
Appearing on Fox News with Carlson, Gabbard seemed unfazed by Romney’s comments, admitting, “This is not a matter of disagreement or holding a dissenting view. This is about facts. While Senator Romney and all these different talking heads in the mainstream media are regurgitating Hillary Clinton’s slanderous talking points, the facts remain.”
Take a look.
Gabbard added, “They are accusing me of saying that somehow there are bioweapons labs in Ukraine. I’ve said no such thing at any point. I have said that there are biolabs in Ukraine that have received U.S. support that contain dangerous pathogens that if those labs are breached, then we in the world are facing a potential future of pandemics that this is a dangerous crisis that needs to be addressed immediately. These pathogens need to be destroyed.”
