(RightWing.org) – Former Democratic presidential hopeful and former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard continues to speak her mind about the ongoing Ukrainian conflict, and Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) continues to appear to straddle the fence somewhere between acting like a RINO and a never-Trumper. He recently accused Gabbard of treason, and she responded with both barrels blazing.
Gabbard posted a short video on her Twitter page on March 13, weighing in on the controversy surrounding allegations the United States funded biolabs in Ukraine.
There are 25+ US-funded biolabs in Ukraine which if breached would release & spread deadly pathogens to US/world. We must take action now to prevent disaster. US/Russia/Ukraine/NATO/UN/EU must implement a ceasefire now around these labs until they’re secured & pathogens destroyed pic.twitter.com/dhDTH5smIG

A few hours later, Romney tweeted, accusing her of spreading Russian propaganda. He also wrote Gabbard’s “treasonous lies [could] cost lives.”
As one might expect, Gabbard didn’t waste any time ripping into Romney’s accusations. She posted a 14-part Twitter thread challenging him to back up his claims.

Gabbard quoted State Department Under Secretary Victoria Nuland’s March 8 Senate testimony acknowledging the presence of Ukrainian biomedical research facilities. She also linked a March 11 Department of Defense fact sheet “directly [and] indirectly confirming the existence of [Ukrainian] Biolabs.”
Then, hammering her point home, Gabbard cited an April 2020 statement released by the US Embassy in Ukraine admitting US-funded labs operated within the country researching vaccine pathogens.
Gabbard concluded her post calling on Romney to admit he was wrong, apologize, and resign.
