Democratic Rep Tulsi Gabbard Who Took Secret Trip To Syria Blasts Trump’s Military Strike (Video)
So, let me get this straight. A member of congress, without the White House’s knowledge, traveled to Syria, spoke with Assad, and now condemns Trump for his missile strike following the death of innocent men, women, and children.
Did I get it right? It seems to me this democrat needs a lesson in transparency and should be questioned about her knowledge of Syrian leadership.
Free Beacon: Democratic Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), who in January went on a secret trip to Syria and met with the country’s leader, Bashar al-Assad, condemned U.S. military strikes against a Syrian government airbase in a statement late Thursday, claiming President Trump “acted recklessly.”
“It angers and saddens me that President Trump has taken the advice of war hawks and escalated our illegal regime change war to overthrow the Syrian government,” Gabbard said. “This administration has acted recklessly without care or consideration of the dire consequences of the United States attack on Syria without waiting for the collection of evidence from the scene of the chemical poisoning.”[…]
The Hawaii Democrat did not provide advanced warning about her trip to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.), despite it being standard practice to do so. She also did not comply with House ethics rules by not filing necessary forms disclosing who paid for her trip as well as who else she may have met within the war-torn country. More
