Clinton Claims a Democratic Candidate Is a Russian Asset

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton made the startling assertion that a current Democratic presidental candidate is a Russian asset.

Clinton made the comments on the Campaign HQ podcast hosted by David Plouffe, President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign manager.

While speaking about the 2020 election and challenges Democrats will face, Clinton partially blamed third-party candidates on her loss and said that Russian operatives are “grooming” a Democratic candidate to run as a third-party candidate:

“They are also going to do third party again. I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her, so far.”

Clinton also accused Jill Stein, who ran as the Green Party candidate in 2016, of being a Russian asset:

“That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset.”

Clinton appeared to be referencing that Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii). Some commentators have suggested that the congresswoman is a Russian asset.

Gabbard has been criticized for her foreign policy views and her weariness of what she calls ‘regime change wars.’ The New York Times scrutinized her recent claim that the Democratic National Committee is trying to rig the primary and said it had echoes of the Russian disinformation campaign in the 2016 election.

The Times ran an article on October 12 that said Russians had praised Gabbard and quoted Laura Rosenberg, a former foreign policy aide to Clinton, who suggested that Russian operatives are seeking to use Gabbard to cause division within the Democratic Party:

“‘The Russian activity could be part of a longer-term effort to drive a wedge among Democrats,’ she said. ‘This messaging has echoes of 2016.'”

The Times also reported that there have been ‘instances of suspicious activity surrounding Ms. Gabbard’s campaign.”:

“Disinformation experts have also pointed to instances of suspicious activity surrounding Ms. Gabbard’s campaign — in particular, a Twitter hashtag, #KamalaHarrisDestroyed, that trended among Ms. Gabbard’s supporters after the first Democratic debate, and appeared to be amplified by a coordinated network of bot-like accounts “

During the fourth Democratic debate, Gabbard said the Times called her a Russian asset and blasted CNN for featuring a guest who called her a Russian agent:

The Hill reported that Twitter said it did not discover suspicious bot activity supporting Gabbard’s campaign.

GC, something tells me you have a problem with ANY kind of intercourse unless it involves another male’s anus and KY. Has it ever occurred to you that your opinions aren’t worth disputing despite any meager effort on your part to defend them?

Why do I need to read an article from you that attempts to justify a flat Earth when I already know it’s round? Likewise, you can try to justify your dumba$$ liberal opinions any way you want, but they’re wrong. You’re so consistently wrong there’s no reason to think you’ll EVER be right….On ANYTHING.

Hillary is still butt hurt about Donald Trump being President even after almost 2 years. In her mind, whatever that might look like, she was wronged. Her continual lashing out gets crazier every time she does it.

“You make the statement; you back it up. No one else is required to find evidence in support of your statements!” Jeffrey Moore

As usual, you are confused. You don’t find evidence to SUPPORT my statements, you find ways to prove me WRONG.

I give you enough to figure out how to do that. Nobody ever does because I am not wrong. If you want to continue living in a fog, then don’t check me.

“Calling the duly elected president of the United States DAILY, “King Donald The Loser”, shows me your level of maturity.” Chrissy

You question MY level of maturity when YOU worship a fascist who wants to rip this country apart? Your priorities are confused.

“all I’ve got to say is, “Don’t let the screen door smack your ass on the way out, MF’er!” Good Riddance!”

Clear enough, snowflake, A-hole?” Unhung Chad

You are confused about who is more concerned about genitalia.

You still haven’t answered my question about why y’all use the same type of language as your King Donald The Loser. Telling people who you disagree with to ” go away” or the even more racist “go back where you came from”. It shows a lack of maturity and a lack of ability to handle social intercourse.

ST: “I have never recommended you go away,”

The Confused about His Genitals: ” Unhung Chad just used it.

The Confused about His Genitals: ” I am pretty sure even I Chung used a few months ago”.

WELL HUNG CHAD: Let there be no mistake, if the Genitally Confused about his Genitalia wants to go, all I’ve got to say is, “Don’t let the screen door smack your ass on the way out, MF’er!” Good Riddance!”

Clear enough, snowflake, A-hole?

ST would be much more polite!
