Hillary Clinton joined the 2020 conversation in a way that Democrats feared the most.
The former two-time failed Presidential candidate spent months chirping from the sidelines about the contest.
But now Hillary Clinton got smacked with this 2020 ultimatum that will leave you speechless.
Hillary Clinton cannot move beyond her humiliating 2016 defeat to Donald Trump.
Rather than accept her loss, Clinton undermined democracy and attacked constitutional norms by claiming an international conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russian government stole the election that she rightfully won.
In a podcast interview with former Barack Obama advisor David Plouffe, Clinton could not help herself but engage in this self-destructive conspiracy-mongering.
Clinton hinted that Gabbard – a veteran that served with honor – was a secret Russian asset that Moscow was grooming to run as a third-party candidate to help Donald Trump win in 2020.
“I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She’s a favorite of the Russians,” Clinton claimed.
Gabbard ripped Clinton for her corruption and support for disastrous wars started by both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
” 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,” Gabbard wrote.
Gabbard saw her campaign fortunes rise after this attack.
A series of early state and national polls saw her support reach the threshold to qualify for the November Presidential debate as Democrats warmed to her anti-establishment and anti-war message.
Gabbard then threw another punch Clinton’s way when her lawyers fired off a letter demanding Clinton retract the defamatory remarks and publicly apologize.
“Your statement is defamatory, and we demand that you retract it immediately,” the letter declared.
“In making the statement, you knew it was false. Congresswoman Gabbard is not a Russian asset and is not being groomed by Russia,” Gabbard’s lawyers added. “Besides your statement, no law enforcement or intelligence agencies have claimed, much less presented any evidence, that Congresswoman Gabbard is a Russian asset. This fabricated story is so facially improbable that it is actionable as defamation.”
Clinton later tried to claim it was ‘fake news’ to claim Gabbard was a Russian asset in training.
But after Clinton made the initial remarks, her spokesman alluded to Gabbard being a Russian asset by comparing her to classic a Russian toy.
“If the nesting doll fits…” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill responded.
Gabbard’s lawyers referenced this remark in their letter to shoot down Clinton’s ridiculous lie.
“It appears you may now be claiming that this statement is about Republicans (not Russians) grooming Gabbard. But this makes no sense in light of what you actually said. After you made the statement linking Congresswoman Gabbard to the Russians, you (through your spokesman) doubled down on it with the Russian nesting dolls remark,” the letter reads.
Democrats despise Gabbard because she seeks to talk to voters beyond the Democrat Party base.
Gabbard’s appeared on Fox News programs and bashed impeachment and the consensus foreign policy shared by leading Democrat candidates.
Clinton attacking Gabbard only further enflames the division in the Democrat Party and makes it more likely Gabbard’s supporters – who are more ideological in nature and less inclined to support establishment Democrats – stay home next November.
And that could prove costly for the party.
