Utah Senator Mitt Romney has never been known to control his verbal outbursts.
Normally Romney hurls his harshest insults at Donald Trump.
But now Mitt Romney just received a letter that may send him to court.
Back in March Mitt Romney attacked former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard for her appearances on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show.
Gabbard and Carlson both opposed a wider war with Russia and questioned Joe Biden’s foreign policy.
For that, Romney slimed Gabbard as a traitor.
Tulsi Gabbard is parroting false Russian propaganda. Her treasonous lies may well cost lives.

Gabbard’s lawyer – longtime conservative activist Harmeet Dhillon – dispatched a cease-and-desist letter to Romney blasting Romney for defaming a war veteran.
“After serving in elected office at the state and local levels, Representative Gabbard was elected to the United States Congress at the age of thirty-one. Representative Gabbard served on the Armed Services, Homeland Security, and Foreign Affairs Committees,” Dhillon’s letter read. “Representative Gabbard continues to serve the United States in uniform as a lieutenant colonel in the 351st Civil Affairs Command, a unit of the United States Army Reserve. Thus, she has skin in the game when it comes to matters of foreign policy and war.”
Dhillon added that Romney cease and desist labeling Gabbard a traitor.
“Representative Gabbard hereby demands that you immediately cease and desist from making false statements of the type discussed above, including, but not limited to, that Representative Gabbard engaged in treasonous conduct of any kind, to any third parties, and by any means, including verbally, in writing, on social media or otherwise on the Internet,” Dhillon wrote.
Dhillon also demanded Romney delete tweets defaming Gabbard.
“We further demand that you retract/takedown all such statements you have made about Representative Gabbard and destroy all copies of those statements,” Dhillon declared.
Polls show that a majority of Americans do not believe Joe Biden’s been tough enough on Russia in terms of either sanctions or sending direct arms to Ukraine.
But polls also show the American people overwhelmingly oppose direct military engagement with the Russians as the likely outcome of a shooting war between America and the Soviets would be nuclear war where tens of millions would perish in the first hours of conflict.
Tulsi Gabbard and Tucker Carlson do not share the aggressive posture towards Russia that many other Republicans have.
But that does not make them traitors or Russian stooges.
Establishment figures like Romney always seek to delegitimize anyone that stands up to their more globalist foreign policy outlook by smearing their critics as traitors instead of addressing the arguments at hand.
