Former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI) warned Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is “doing everything that he can to bring us and NATO into this war.”
“You heard it from Zelensky himself, talking about the consequences of World War III,” Gabbard noted on Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday. “The thing is, he has made very clear that that’s where he thinks we are already — that we’re in World War III. Ukraine is the tip of the spear. This is how he justifies demanding — making demands of the United States and all of these NATO countries to equip him with the weapons and aircraft and tanks that the United States and NATO have to go and fight this war that we are in against Russia.”

“He’s doing everything that he can to bring us and NATO into this war, directly into conflict with Russia,” Gabbard added.
Gabbard’s comments follow President Joe Biden making a surprise trip to Ukraine, where he affirmed U.S. support and announced an additional half billion dollars in assistance.
The former congresswoman, who left the Democratic Party because it is “under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness,” called the notion that supporting the Ukraine war was in the name of democracy a “lie.”

“You look at the lies that American people are being told by President Biden, by Mitch McConnell, by these warmongers in both parties selling this lie that this is about defending freedom and democracy,” Gabbard said. “There’s no greater threat to that democracy than this fight against this war against Russia.”
“They are the ones undermining our democracy,” she continued. “They are the ones who are denying the American people our constitutional right to have a say whether or not we go to war or not. It is an affront to the Constitution and every single American, and we should all be raising hell about this because it is our future. The future of the world that’s at stake.”
