Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton accused Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (R-HI), who has challenged the xenophobic, pro-war consensus of her party as a Democratic presidential contender for 2020, of being a possible Russian asset earlier today.
She made the baseless assertion on Friday that Gabbard is planning to run a third-party campaign to sabotage the Democrats on behalf of the evil Rooskies.
“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 during an appearance on former Obama adviser David Plouffe’s podcast, obviously referring to Gabbard. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”
“They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far,” Clinton added. She also compared Gabbard to Jill Stein, the Green Party presidential candidate in 2016 who Democrats often claim is affiliated with the Russians.
Gabbard immediately struck back against Clinton, calling her the “queen of warmongers” in a blistering post released on various social media platforms.
“Great! Thank you, Hillary Clinton. 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 wrote.
“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,” she added.
To conclude her take-down of Crooked Hillary, Gabbard told Clinton to actually join the presidential race if she had the guts to take her on directly rather than having cronies and sycophants do her dirty work.
“It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly,” Gabbard concluded.
It has become a popular talking point of the Democratic Party establishment to accuse Gabbard of being a Russian asset due to her principled, anti-war views. It is one of the many conspiracy theories they have concocted regarding Russia following the election of President Trump.
Tulsi Gabbard is using Russian talking points to describe the Syrian Civil War instead as a "regime change war."
That is a terrible lie.
It absolves Assad the Butcher for the mass murder of his own citizens with Putin's help.#DemDebate

Today, I tweeted snark when @TulsiGabbard whined "election rigged, corporate media" stuff. I got hit with familiar attacks. I checked & they used almost same language as '16 tweets since confirmed to be Russian actors.
Is Tulsi set to be next Stein spoiler, promoted by Russia?

The reason it took Tulsi Gabbard so long to respond is that she had to run it by Putin first.
Honestly, it probably sounded better in the original Russian.

straight up spewing conspiracies that @TulsiGabbard is a RUSSIAN PLANT on daytime television like it’s no big deal

The Russophobic nature of the radicalized Democrats in the age of Trump is outpacing McCarthyism in terms of sheer hysteria. Gabbard’s unwillingness to back down will only trigger them further as she continues to gain headlines for her iconoclastic views in an otherwise uniform field of presidential contenders.
Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski Emerge as Republican Red Flags in Potential SCOTUS Confirmation
They say they’ll vote ‘No.’
Republican Senators Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska have emerged as early ‘red flags’ in the push to appoint a new Supreme Court justice, with the latter two senators having spoken openly of their refusal to vote for a new justice in the runup to a presidential election. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg died on Friday, opening up a vacancy on the court.
Collins allegedly told a New York Times reporter that she wouldn’t vote for a new SCOTUS justice in ‘October’ earlier this month.
News: @SenatorCollins told me earlier this month in Maine that she would not seat a Supreme Court justice in October.
“I think that’s too close, I really do,” she said.

Murkowski told a reporter with Alaska Public Media that she wouldn’t vote for a new justice before the election, either.

Reports emerged on Friday night that Romney would decline to vote for a court confirmation as well, although they’re yet to be verified.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to hold confirmation proceedings for a potential Trump Supreme Court nominee, suggesting that a nominee would receive a Senate floor vote before the election. He distinguished between the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland and the vacancy that arose from the death of Ginsberg, pointing out that a Republican President would be nominating a justice for confirmation through a Republican Senate.
It may be possible to confirm a new SCOTUS justice without the votes of the three-liberally inclined Senate Republicans, as a justice can be confirmed with 50 votes and a vice presidential tiebreaker. Other Republican Senators under the pressure of an ongoing campaign, such as Arizona’s Martha McSally, spoke in favor of the Senate having a floor vote on a tentative Trump administration SCOTUS nominee.
This U.S. Senate should vote on President Trump's next nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.

This could be the most heated Supreme Court confirmation process in history, and some the Senate Republican’s members have already confirmed they’re not standing with conservatives.
