The report, signed by Joe Lauria, pointed out that this action is part of the “war mania” of the White House.
Hawley recently addressed the “Russian threats” but said that going to war with Moscow over Ukraine was not in the interests of the United States, that it should go after China instead, something that angered the White House, according to statements from Press Secretary Jen Psaki.
According to Lauria, the extent to which the White House will not tolerate any dissent against its war message against Russia was revealed when Psaki condemned Hawley as a “Russian propagandist” for simply questioning the momentum of the war on Ukraine.
Psaki accused the congressman of “parroting Russian talking points” for sending a letter to Secretary of State Antony Blinken questioning the impetus for the war.
“If you are digesting Russian misinformation and parroting Russian talking points, you are not aligned with … American values.” Psaki told reporters at a regular briefing at the White House.
Said values are allegedly “upholding the sovereignty of countries like Ukraine… their right to choose their own alliances and also to clearly oppose efforts – or attempts, or possible attempts – by any country to invade and take the territory of another country”, she said.
“That applies to Senator Hawley, but it also applies to others who may be parroting the arguments of leading Russian propagandists.”
