Former Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has demanded an apology from Utah Senator Mitt Romney after he called her a “treasonous liar” over her comments about US-funded biolabs in Ukraine.
The disagreement appears to have come from a misunderstanding over comments Gabbard made on Fox News when she cited evidence that the United States has funded biolabs in Ukraine, not bioweapons labs, as Russian disinformation campaigns have claimed.
Gabbard suggested there may have been some misinterpretation of her use of “biolabs” and how they differ from bioweapons labs.
“‘Biolabs’ are facilities which contain and experiment with dangerous pathogens, ostensibly for the purpose of serving the public good (i.e. vaccines, etc.). ‘Biological weapons labs’ are facilities which exist for the purpose of turning pathogens into weapons so they can be used against an enemy (i.e. ‘bioweapons’),” Gabbard tweeted.
Gabbard then fired back at Romney, saying, “So, Senator Romney, you have a choice: out of pride, continue to deny the truth or admit you are wrong, apologize, and resign,” Gabbard said, in concluding the thread. “Aloha. And remember that without the truth, we can be neither safe nor free.”
