From The Gateway Pundit
RINOs and Democrat warmongers are very concerned that Ukrainian-born Republican lawmaker is hurting their war efforts by speaking out against Ukrainian President Zelenskyy and his closest aides.
Rep. Victoria Spartz (R-IN) was the darling of the warmongers just a few short months ago.
Now Republican lawmakers are wondering why she is purposely “hurting our war effort” by speaking out against President Zelenskyy and his aides.
Earlier this week Rep. Spartz accused Kiev of screwing up the peace talks and even weapons deliveries.
In response, Ukrainian officials accused Spartz of promoting Russian propaganda.
Rep. Spartz warned that the US must not create another Afghanistan with the billions of dollars in weapons they are gifting to Ukraine.
This forced the warmongers to lecture Spartz on what’s best for her home country.
House Republicans gave Ukraine-born Rep. Victoria Spartz a coveted platform to speak out against Russia’s war. They’re coming to regret that.
Spartz (R-Ind.), who has traveled to Ukraine a half-dozen times since the war began and spoken passionately about the conflict, shocked lawmakers in both parties recently with her intense criticisms of the country’s president, Volodymyr Zelenskyy, and his confidants. She drew a rare rebuke last weekend from the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, which accused her of “trying to earn extra political capital on baseless speculation.”
Inside the House GOP Conference, there’s a widespread fear that her posture is damaging U.S.-Ukraine relations at the worst possible time — and that she’s being played by forces that aim to weaken the Western alliance. GOP national-security hawks also worry that the MAGA wing of their party, where there’s already resistance to supporting Ukraine, will point to Spartz’s comments as justification.
They’re concerned that Spartz’s public break from Zelenskyy — and her corruption accusations about his closest aides — could portend future cracks in U.S. support for Ukraine, especially as the midterm elections approach.
“Her naiveness is hurting our own people,” said a GOP lawmaker who serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, granted anonymity to speak candidly about a colleague. “It is not helpful to what we’re trying to do and I’m not sure her facts are accurate … We have vetted these guys.” The Republican warned that Spartz’s comments could “hurt” the war effort.
