TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): So, with those facts in mind, the Biden administration's behavior in the days before the Ukraine invasion tells you a lot about what motivated them. With Russian troops massed by the thousands on the Ukrainian border, Joe Biden sent Kamala Harris, the least capable diplomat in Washington, to explain America's policy to European heads of state. At a public press event at the Munich Security Conference, Kamala Harris encouraged Ukraine to become a member of NATO: "I appreciate and admire President Zelensky's desire to join NATO." Message? "Up yours, Vladimir Putin. Go ahead and invade Ukraine." And of course, Vladimir Putin did that just days later.
So, the invasion was no surprise to the Biden administration. They knew that would happen -- that was the point of the exercise. We watched all this happen. We missed it. How? Honestly, because it was insane. And therefore very hard to take seriously. Why in the world would the United States intentionally seek war with Russia? How could we possibly benefit from that war? We still don't know the answer to that question.
But it is obvious that permanent Washington has been fixated on war with Russia for a very long time. A couple of years ago, you may remember -- we'd forgotten -- they impeached a sitting president. Why? For threatening to withhold military aid to President Zelensky of Ukraine. Failing to back a proxy war in Ukraine was the one thing Donald Trump was not allowed to do as president. Again, they impeached him for it. And no one said much about it, even in his own party, because of course, they supported war with Russia too. Maybe even more than the Democrats did.
