  • Hillary Clinton Claims Russians ‘Grooming’ Tulsi Gabbard as Third-Party Candidate

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asserted that the Russians are attempting to undermine the 2020 election by backing Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D., Hawaii) as a third-party candidate, stating “she’s the favorite of the Russians.”Appearing on Obama campaign manager David Plouffe’s podcast, Clinton made a number of claims regarding Russian meddling in U.S. elections, including that Gabbard’s substantial social-media support relies on Russian bots. Gabbard was the most-searched candidate after the first and second Democratic debates.“I think they’ve got their eye on someone who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said on the podcast. “She’s the favorite of the Russians. They have a bunch of sites and bots and other ways of supporting her so far.”Clinton’s comments come after Gabbard called the coverage of her campaign by The New York Times and CNN “completely despicable” during the fourth Democratic debate Tuesday night.“The New York Times and CNN have also smeared veterans like myself for calling to an end to this regime-change war,” Gabbard told the crowd in Ohio. “Just two days ago, the New York Times put out an article saying I am a Russian asset and an Assad apologist and all these different smears. This morning, a CNN commentator said on national television that I’m an asset of Russia.”In August, Gabbard also told CNN that she would not run as a third-party candidate if she does not win the Democratic nomination.Clinton also labelled Green Party candidate Jill Stein a “Russian asset” and suggested on the podcast that Gabbard is playing a similar role in this election.“They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate . . . I will guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most needed,” Clinton declared.In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s election, the Clinton campaign followed Jill Stein’s demands for a recount in Wisconsin, which ultimately gave Trump 131 more votes.“Because we had not uncovered any actionable evidence of hacking or outside attempts to alter the voting technology, we had not planned to exercise this option ourselves, but now that a recount has been initiated in Wisconsin, we intend to participate in order to ensure the process proceeds in a manner that is fair to all sides,” campaign lawyer Marc Elias said at the time.

  • Fox News Host Ed Henry: Not ‘Media’s Fault’ Mick Mulvaney Admitted Quid Pro Quo

    Fox News attempted to help “acting” White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney clean up his admission of a “quid pro quo” with Ukraine, but Fox & Friends Weekend host and reporter Ed Henry wasn’t quite ready to let him off the hook.After telling the press corp on Thursday that there is “going to be political influence in foreign policy” and that they should just “get over it,” Mulvaney released a statement later in the day that walked back his comments and blamed the media for supposedly twisting his words.“Once again, the media has decided to misconstrue my comments to advance a biased and political witch hunt against President Trump,” Mulvaney said. “Let me be clear, there was absolutely no quid pro quo between Ukrainian military aid and any investigation into the 2016 election.” When he heard those words read aloud on Fox Friday morning, Henry said, “I’m not sure what Mick Mulvaney’s case is. The media is to blame for writing down what he said, for Fox recording on video what he said? He stood at the podium and connected the dots for Democrats!” It was only after both Democrats and some Republicans pounced on what Mulvaney had said that he decided to walk it back, Henry explained. “So if it’s the media’s fault, I’m not quite sure why the White House chief of staff is clarifying,” he added. Henry has been straddling the line between Trump critic and defender on impeachment for the past few weeks after the president lashed out at him for daring to suggest that pressuring a foreign country for dirt on a political opponent may be inappropriate. He later lauded Trump as “honest and transparent” for admitting his offenses out loud instead of doing them only in secret. Here, he seemed to be splitting the difference and laying most of the blame not on President Trump but on Mulvaney for admitting the truth. “There may not be a quid pro quo but Mick Mulvaney, the president’s own chief of staff, sort of messed it up and made it seem like there was,” Henry said. “So he’s hurting their own case.”“Well, maybe there was,” his colleague Juan Williams replied. “Maybe he’s trying to say, that’s the reality, and now he’s trying to walk back to the truth because he wants to save his ‘acting’ job.” Sean Hannity Goes Off on Mick Mulvaney: ‘I Just Think He’s Dumb’Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?
