The Democrats really don’t like Tulsi Gabbard, which is a shame because other than a few policy differences, she’s a decent candidate and would likely be a real contender against President Trump, pulling in moderates and independents.
But she’s not liberal enough for the DNC and everyone on the left, including Hillary Clinton is out to sink her campaign. The most ridiculous rumor that Democrats keep trying to spread is that Gabbard is an asset working for Russia.
Clinton seems to be buying that too, telling the host of the podcast “Campaign HQ with David Plouffe”, “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s the favorite of the Russians.”
She went on to also accuse Jill Stein of being a Russian asset too.
“That’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she’s also a Russian asset. Yeah, she’s a Russian asset — I mean, totally,” Clinton continued. “They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate. So I don’t know who it’s going to be, but I will guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most needed.”
