Gabbard: ‘Assad Is Not the Enemy of the United States’

Gabbard: ‘Assad Is Not the Enemy of the United States’

How was Gabbard's speech received, and what does a recent NBC News article targeting Gabbard and Russian Federation indicate about her potential danger to the political establishment?

Gabbard, who is both Hindu and of Samoan descent, responded to Duke on Twitter, expressing her disdain for his support.

Making her informal announcement to CNN, Gabbard said she considers access to healthcare, criminal justice reform and climate change to be key concerns for her campaign.

Gabbard has previously backed left-winger Bernie Sanders, when he competed against Hillary Clinton to represent the Democrats in the 2016 presidency race, which was eventually won by Donald Trump.

In response to NBC's story, Gabbard seemed to latch onto Greenwald's suggestion that there's an active effort to paint the Hawaii congresswoman as a "Kremlin stooge" to derail her campaign for president. As an Army National Guard veteran, she wants to bring her experience from the military to a national level.

Gabbard serves on the House Armed Services Committee where she is a strong advocate for veterans, our service members, and making smart strategic decisions that best secure our nation. The sudden reveal reportedly came as a shock to the congresswoman's team, sending it rushing to firm up her campaign's infrastructure including its website and publicity.

"In my past, I said and believed things that were wrong, and worse, hurtful to people in the LGBTQ+ community and their loved ones".

Crypto holder Tulsi Gabbard, the United States Representative for Hawaii's 2nd congressional district, has formally launched her campaign for the forthcoming 2020 US presidential elections.

Gabbard has supported progressive legislation during her time in Congress, including backing Medicare for all and a Green New Deal.

"Gabbard's most controversial position and the one where she's most in line with Russian interests is on Syria", wrote NBC News reporters Robert Windrem and Ben Popken. She promised to "end the regime-change wars that have taken far too many lives and undermined our security by strengthening terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda".

Shortly after Gabbard announced her candidacy, NBC News published a report saying a survey of the major English-language Russian news outlets have shown support for the representative over other 2020 candidates.

Appearing on MSNBC this morning, Gabbard emphasized that she does not necessarily view Assad as an enemy of the United States.

So the story goes: Russian propagandists may or may not have launched a campaign to support Gabbard, who may or may not be a Kremlin asset, but you can't believe that claim because it was made by an American company who lied about shady Russian tactics ... but you can't believe that assessment, because it's been pushed by a journalist compromised by Russia.
