Former Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard blasted Vice President Kamala Harris over her response to the sentencing of a WNBA player in Russia.
Brittney Griner was sentenced to nine years in a Russian jail after pleading guilty to smuggling drugs by carrying vaping cartridges with cannabis oil.

“Another note of hypocrisy coming from Kamala Harris and this administration,” Gabbard said. “It doesn’t make any sense.”
“My question for her and the Biden administration — 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?” Gabbard continued.
“How come you are not fighting as hard for them to be returned home and reunited with their families as you are for Brittney Griner?”
While Harris has spoken out in social media posts against the ruling, the Biden administration has done little to secure Griner’s release.
The latest attack by Gabbard reveals that even Democrats are fed up with Harris putting Americans last when it comes to getting things done, leaving frustration with the Biden administration from Americans across both parties.
