Twice failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, suggested that 2020 hopeful, CongresswomanTulsi Gabbard (D-HI), is “being groomed by Russians” during an interview with Campaign HQ’s podcast. Hillary has also blamed Russia for her defeat against Donald Trump.

Gabbard took to Twitter Friday to respond to Clinton, where she ripped her as the “queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party”.

Speaking with host David Plouffe, Hillary Clinton said, “I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary, and they’re grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”

“She’s a favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far and that’s assuming Jill Stein will give it up, which she might not because she is also a Russian asset,” Clinton claimed.

“They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate, and so I do not know who it is going to be but I can guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most need it,” the twice-failed candidate added. (Continued Below)

Tulsi Gabbard responded to Clinton on Twitter in a series of tweets and wrote, “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,” she continued.

“It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly,” Gabbard dared. (Continued Below)
