Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has hit back at Hillary Clinton for accusing her of being a ‘Russian asset’ who was being ‘groomed by the Kremlin’
The Congresswoman accused Hillary Clinton of being behind a ‘concerted campaign’ to destroy her reputation and challenged her to stop hiding behind proxies and enter the 2020 presidential race.
Gabbard also told Fox News : Thousands of my brothers and sisters in uniform were killed in Iraq, a war that she championed,’
‘Their blood is on her hands. That’s why she’s smearing my character and trying to undermine my campaign.’
RT reports: Clinton, who has blamed everyone from the FBI to Russia for her 2016 loss to Donald Trump, said in an interview on Thursday that “Russians” were “grooming” someone in the Democrat primary field to run as a third-party candidate. While not calling out Gabbard by name, her spokesperson later told CNN, “if the nesting doll fits,” leaving no room for doubt.
Of all the candidates in the crowded Democrat primary field, Gabbard has been under the heaviest fire from journalists who previously boosted Clinton, accused of being an “Assad apologist” over a fact-finding trip she took to Syria years ago. “
Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly,” Gabbard called out Clinton, who has dropped hints that she might run again in 2020 as a rematch for her 2016 humiliation.
