Romney Slams Gabbard for ‘Parroting Russian Propaganda’ and ‘Treasonous Lies’

Republican Senator Mitt Romney accused former Democratic Representative Tulsi Gabbard on Sunday of repeating Russian “propaganda” after she claimed that the U.S. is involved in biological labs in Ukraine.

tweeted. “Her treasonous lies may well cost lives.” His remarks came after Gabbard, who hails from Hawaii, posted a video on Twitter Sunday morning in which she claimed that there are “25 to 30 U.S. funded bio labs in Ukraine.”

“According to the U.S government, these bio labs are conducting research on dangerous pathogens,” she said in the video. “These pathogens know no borders, if they are inadvertently or purposely breached or compromised, they will quickly spread all throughout Europe, the United States and the rest of the world causing untold suffering and death.”

The former congresswoman said that in order to protect everyone around the world, “these labs need to be shut down immediately and the pathogens that they hold need to be destroyed.” The U.S. and Ukrainian governments have both denied the existence of bioweapons facilities in Ukraine, according to The Independent.

This week, Florida Senator Marco Rubio asked the U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland if Ukraine does in fact have biological or chemical weapons. Nuland responded that “Ukraine has biological research facilities,” adding, that she is concerned that “Russian forces may be seeking to gain control of” them.

“So we are working with the Ukrainians on how they can prevent any of those research materials from falling into the hands of Russian forces should they approach,” she said.

However, a State Department spokesperson told Newsweek on Wednesday that the “biological research facilities” that Nuland mentioned are actually in reference to “Ukrainian diagnostic and biodefense laboratories” and confirmed that they “are not biological weapons facilities.”

“These institutions counter biological threats throughout the country,” the spokesperson added, and also confirmed that the country is “in compliance with the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC),” while “the same cannot be said for Russia, which has an active biological weapons program and is in violation of the BWC.”

Echoing the State Department’s comments, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Wednesday that Russia’s allegation of U.S. biological weapons labs is false.

“We took note of Russia’s false claims about alleged U.S. biological weapons labs and chemical weapons development in Ukraine. We’ve also seen Chinese officials echo these conspiracy theories,” Psaki wrote in a series of tweets.

“This is preposterous. It’s the kind of disinformation operation we’ve seen repeatedly from the Russians over the years in Ukraine and in other countries, which have been debunked, and an example of the types of false pretexts we have been warning the Russians would invent,” she added.

  1. This All American Lady is in possession of at least THREE things Romney Doesn’t Have, INTEGRITY, DIGNITY and a DD 214!!

  2. Who is Romney to talk about anyone lying. He tells Americans “buy electric cars. “ when Americans are trying to live they this inflation just getting over a pandemic, While he jumps into his jet sn flies wherever. Let’s make his plane electric. To save on the fuel he wastes

    1. WHAT???? If you don’t want one don’t buy one!!!
      I’m sorry you can’t afford one….I can’t either! That’s the way it goes

  3. Romney is a RINO from the word GO and he’s still butt hurt that he wasn’t elected President years ago. He needs to look in the mirror before he opens his mouth about someone else. He’s gotten into bed with the Dems and China over the years, taking their $$$ while working AGAINST the people of this Country. He NEVER served in the military, doesn’t have a CLUE as to what the people are having to decide: pay for gas or buy groceries this week. I say that EVERYONE in Congress gets $70,000 a year to live on and if that’s not enough, then tough toenails!

  4. Tulsi Gabbard may be a Democrat, but I trust her more than some lousy neocon globalist RINO like Romney so obviously is.

  5. They’re both anti-American scumbags I had the unfortunate pleasure of living in Romney’s State he’s a rat cowered backstabbing piece of communist crap but worse then that he’s a nut job Mormon cultists.
