Former Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) blasted Vice President Kamala Harris for her position on WNBA player Brittney Griner, who was found guilty in Russia for possession of illegal substances.
During the Friday broadcast of "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Gabbard tore into the Vice President for calling for the release of Griner even after Harris built a career locking up Americans for drug offenses.
Gabbard stated that "[A]nother note of hypocrisy coming from Kamala Harris and this administration is, as you mentioned, how, during her illustrious record as Attorney General in California, you gave some of those examples. She kept prisoners in prison longer than their sentences to use them as free slave labor. Yet, at the same time, these very same people are condemning other countries for doing the exact same thing. It doesn't make any sense."
Thousands of Americans continue to sit in prison for drug-related offenses and yet the Biden administration has done nothing for them.
Gabbard continued by saying, "The thing that struck me when I saw Kamala Harris's tweet and her statement expressing this outrage about Brittney Griner, first of all, let me say, I don't think anybody anywhere in the world should be imprisoned for marijuana possession. Period. Full stop. When you look at Kamala Harris' statement on Twitter, she is expressing this outrage about Brittney Griner. My question for her and the Biden administration is, where is your outrage for your fellow Americans who are sitting in prison today here in the United States of America because of minor marijuana violations?"
Vice President Harris has a lot of explaining to do to Americans who she has locked up.
