US Under Secretary of State Victoria Nuland did not say no when she was asked by Sen Rubio about there being biological or chemical weapons in Ukraine – Tulsi Gabbard

Video transcript

Fox: So, it’s without even going into what they told us was Russian disinformation – is actually true – how concerned are you that Victoria Nuland is overseeing this war, has just admitted there are unsecured bio agents, dangerous bio agents in Ukraine.

Tulsi Gabbard: I’m extremely concerned, as should be every American and everyone in the world. The seriousness of this situation really can’t be overstated. First of all, she didn’t say no. When she was asked by Marco Rubio, about there being biological or chemical weapons in Ukraine. So, if there were or are, obviously that would be a violation of the biological weapons convention.

Number two, they’re categorically being trying to hide this, as you’ve laid out very very well and then once they were found out. Rather than saying hey, you know what. This is a critical an emergency. It’s a crisis. We have these pathogens in the midst of a war zone, not just in one location but between 20 and 30 labs in Ukraine. This is a global crisis. We’re going to take action immediately. This is how a responsible leader would react, given the crisis of this moment.

But instead, what did they do. Her response to senator Rubio, was immediately start pointing fingers. We’re going to preemptively start the blame game, should anything happen to these pathogens and who knows what is going on in these labs. Before anything bad happens, just say, that it’s the bad guys, it’s the bad guys who are responsible for this.

It is the height of irresponsibility, their response to this. The fact, that they’re covering it up. The fact, that they aren’t doing really what needs to be done. Because -if unless this war in Ukraine ends right now, ends tonight. We face a very real certainty, that one or more of these labs will be compromised, will be breached and it won’t just be the people of Ukraine who are impacted. We could face another global crisis when you look at a pathogen that could be released. We just went through this with Covid, we can’t have forgotten this already.
