(PartiallyPolitics.com) – At the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday, former Hawaii Representative Tulsi Gabbard raised alarms about what she perceives as a critical threat to American democracy, as reported by The Washington Examiner. Gabbard, who has served as a U.S. Army Reserve officer and is being considered as a possible vice-presidential candidate for Donald Trump, voiced strong objections to the Justice Department’s efforts to bring criminal charges against the ex-president, terming it an attack on the foundations of democracy.

In her speech, Gabbard targeted the Democratic Party for allegedly manipulating the criminal justice system to thwart Trump’s chances in the upcoming presidential race, a statement that won her the first standing ovation at the event. She argued that the actions taken against Trump were so unprecedented that they had drawn concern even from those who are not his supporters.

Since leaving Congress and the Democratic Party, Gabbard has been outspoken on platforms like Fox News, criticizing what she sees as a shift towards extremism within the Democratic ranks. She has been particularly critical of federal entities like the FBI and the DOJ, accusing them of bias against those opposed to President Joe Biden’s administration.

Gabbard’s engagement with Trump, especially their discussions on foreign policy and defense reforms, marks a significant pivot from her Democratic roots to a more Republican-aligned stance, highlighted by her potential vice-presidential candidacy with Trump. Her transformation is further evidenced by her scheduled appearance at a fundraiser at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.

During her CPAC speech, Gabbard also countered criticisms leveled against Trump by Nikki Haley, a fellow Republican and former Governor of South Carolina. Gabbard refuted Haley’s portrayal of Trump as self-centered by sharing her personal experiences with him, emphasizing his sincere gratitude towards service members, often expressed away from the public eye.

Gabbard’s remarks at the conference reflect her evolving political journey and underscore the deepening divisions within the American political landscape, as well as her emerging role as a bridge between conservative ideals and her diverse background and military service.
