Hillary Clinton appears to accuse Tulsi Gabbard of being groomed by Russia

Hillary Clinton is accusing Russia of grooming a Democratic candidate for a run for a third party candidacy to split the vote to help Donald Trump. The Guardian reports the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee believes Tulsi Gabbard could fill that role.

Without naming Gabbard, Clinton said on the podcast Campaign HQ with former Obama aide David Plouffe, ” “She’s the favorite of the Russians,” They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”

Reporters asked Clinton’s spokesman whether the Senator was referring to Gabbard and he said: “If the nesting doll fits.”

Gabbard, who split with the Democrats in 2016 and endorsed Bernie Sanders run for president, is now running about 12th in the polls in the race for the Democratic nomination in 2020.

Gabbard had harsh words for Clinton on Twitter.

“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.”

Gabbard told CBS News she “knows she can’t control me.”

“I’ve been very clear, I will not be leaving the Democratic party, I will not be running as an independent or a third-party candidate,” Gabbard said. “I am running as a Democrat to take our party back, away from the control of people like Hillary Clinton and the warmongering and corrupt, powerful establishment and return our party into the hands of the people. Make it so the Democratic party is once again a party of, by and for the people, a party that will fight for the people, fight to protect the planet and that will fight for peace.”
