Hillary Clinton appears to suggest Russians are 'grooming' Tulsi Gabbard for third-party run

By Dan Merica, CNN

Updated 12:01 PM EDT, Fri October 18, 2019

(CNN) Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Friday the Russians are currently "grooming" a Democrat running in the presidential primary to run as a third-party candidate and champion their interests.

The comment appears to be directed at Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, who has been accused of being cozy with Russia in the past.

"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," Clinton said, speaking on a podcast with former Obama adviser David Plouffe. "She's the favorite of the Russians."

Clinton never names Gabbard, but there are only five women running for President -- Gabbard, California Sen. Kamala Harris, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and author Marianne Williamson -- and none of the other woman have been accused of being boosted by Russia.

"They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far," Clinton said.

Gabbard and her spokespeople did not respond to questions from CNN.

"If the nesting doll fits," Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill said when asked if the former secretary of state was referring to Gabbard.

----

Clinton also accused Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate in both the 2012 and 2016 elections, of being a "Russian asset."

"That's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she's also a Russian asset," Clinton said. "Yes, she's a Russian asset, I mean, totally. They know they can't win without a third-party candidate."

It's the new fad currently destroying the Democratic party, everyone they don't like is a Russian stooge.

because it's not weird at all that Trump is -still- trying to prove Russia innocent of election interference... after his also not weird 2 year effort to suggest Russia was innocent... after his also not weird entire campaign saying we should be friends with Russia... plus defending them on the plane shootdown, and on Crimea, and doubting they poisoned anyone in England, and dismissing Putin's being a killer, and protesting & delaying sanctions against Russia, and repeatedly advocating for them being back in the G7...

all that behavior is totally understandable, right?

...i'm willing to accept a useful idiot defense, as he's clearly half of it

it would also require a massive mental illness component too, which again i'm more than willing to accept

(so not calling him a knowing asset)

in any case, fuck Hillary :p

"
Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain.

From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.

It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.
"

i'd get rid of that last paragraph, otherwise good on her

Kind of an odd way for Hillary to officially announce she is running.

...or maybe kargen's the Russian asset

Lol. Tw still thinks Putin gave a shit who became president in 2016. His whole scheme was to cause a rift in the political game and you and your ilk played into his hands

so another moron joins kargen

that was their initial plan, yes, as they could never have believed Trump would win the nomination

you'd have to be a fucking idiot not to think Putin preferred Trump over Hillary (even without unanimous conclusion by our intel agencies)... see list of items above... plus Trump being an idiot buffoon who tries to create rifts daily

I still think Putin didn't give a shit and had a contingency for undermining either candidate. He undermines President Trump by pretending to be buddies and President Trump isn't seeing it.

If I were a Russian asset I'd like to think I would be driving a nicer car.

At least we all agree Hillary has been running this entire time, she just hasn't done the official announcement yet.

"You know the initial plans eh? MSNBC host tell you those plans?"

how about from extensive investigation and conclusions by our intel agencies?... the ones you now believe are corrupt because lying child Trump and his Fox allies told you so (I'm sure Putin hates that distrust sown)... as if there's no obvious reason why his campaign was investigated

and despite zero actual corrupt acts shown... you're fine believing tons of agents and Muellers team all acted corruptly and filed false charges against Russians, and set up Papadopolous and set up Manafort and set up Don Jr, and hid the DNC server in Ukraine for some reason... and whatever other nonsense, all because they don't like Trump despite him being the greatest hero to ever walk the earth

Putin preferred Trump.

I believe even the Senate intel report (led by Rs) came to same conclusion, not that Fox would've covered it

A GOP-led Senate intel committee report states the obvious: Russia favored Trump in 2016

i clearly have won this argument

you & kargen have literally nothing to support your idiocy... common sense alone shows Putin would prefer Trump (personal animus toward Hillary, vs an idiot clown saying 'i love Russia, we should all like them more' would be enough yet there was SOOO much more... you don't even come close to needing the multiple reports that also prove it

your failure is massive, i hope you recover

[Gabbard]: "You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain."

That's a cool line, but overt defiance of the Clintons will get her Bernie'd. If this wasn't just H.Clinton sinking herself to give Gabbard that highly sought after ["I hate Clinton"]-DNC voter, then Gabbard should expect some white noise machines and weird trouble with super-delegates.

..
[Clinton]: "That's assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not, because she's also a Russian asset ... Yes, she's a Russian asset, I mean, totally. They know they can't win without a third-party candidate."

Good response to that:
"O’Neil, speaking on behalf of the Green Party, rejected Clinton’s logic Friday. “Clinton says ‘they can’t win again without a third party candidate’ when the reality is the Democrats and Republican’s cartel-like suppression of third parties and real democratic reforms like ranked choice voting and proportional representation corroded our politics to the point where a crooked, white supremacist, misogynist, fame-obsessed huckster like Donald Trump could connive his way into the White House”" ( http://www...ll-stein-russian-asset-901008/ ).

Somebody gets it.

Imagine the retarded logic of the mainstream Democrat: Tulsi enjoys centrist and right-wing support. That's why she's going to run third-party and siphon votes from Democrats!
