Speaking with former Obama 2008 campaign manager David Plouffe on his podcast, “Campaign HQ with David Plouffe,” Clinton said – without mentioning Gabbard by name: “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. She’s the favorite of the Russians.”
Of course, that’s “assuming Jill Stein will give it up – because she’s also a Russian asset,” Clinton continued.
Earlier in the interview, Clinton hinted that the Trump 2020 campaign is still in “contact with the Russians,” and that “we have to assume that since it worked for them, why would they quit?”
“Donald Trump is Vladimir Putin’s dream,” Clinton added. “I don’t know what Putin has on him – whether its both personal and financial, I assume it is. But more than that, there’s this bizarre adulation Trump has for dictators.”
Clinton also insisted that Russia “did affect the outcome of the election” in 2016, despite the DOJ concluding otherwise.

Let me briefly recount what’s happened in the past seven days since the U.S. announced our withdrawal. The Kurds, suffering loss of life and property, have allied with Assad. Russia has assumed control of our previous military positions, and the U.S. has been forced in many cases to bomb some of our own facilities to prevent their appropriation by Russia and Turkey…
The ceasefire does not change the fact that America has abandoned an ally. Adding insult to dishonor, the Administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty, their homes have been burned, and their families have been torn apart…
What we have done to the Kurds will stand as a blood stain in the annals of American history.
There are broad strategic implications of our decision as well. Iranian and Russian interests in the Middle East have been advanced by our decision. At a time when we are applying maximum pressure on Iran, by giving them a stronger hand in Syria, we have actually weakened that pressure. Russia’s objective to play a greater role in the Middle East has also been greatly enhanced. The Kurds out of desperation have now aligned with Assad. So America is diminished. Russia, Iran, and Assad are strengthened.
And so I ask how and why that decision was made?…
I ask whether it is the position of the Administration that the United States Senate, a body of 100 people representing both political parties, is to be entirely absent from decisions of the magnitude just taken in Syria?
Now some argue that we should not have been in Syria in the first place because there was not a vote taken by the Senate to engage in war there. I disagree. Congress has given the President legal authority and funding to fight against terrorists in Syria…
Others argue that we should just get out of a messy situation like this. The Middle East, they say, has had wars going on forever, just let them have at it. There’s of course a certain logic to this position as well, but again it applies only to the original decision as to whether or not we should have gone into Syria. Once we have engaged, and made the commitments we made, honor as well as self-interest demand that we not abandon our allies.
It has been suggested that Turkey may have called America’s bluff, telling the president that they were coming no matter what we did. If this is so, we should know it, for it would tell us a great deal about how we should deal with Turkey now and in the future.
Some have argued that Syria is a mess, with warring groups and sub groups, friends and allies shifting from one side to another, and thus we had to exit because there was no reasonable path for us to go forward. Are we incapable of understanding and shaping complex situations? Russia seems to have figured it out. Are we less adept than they? And are our principles to be jettisoned when we find things get messy?
The Administration claims that none of these reasons are accurate. Instead, the President has said that we left to fulfill a commitment to stop endless wars, to bring troops home, to get them out of harm’s way, perhaps to save money. I find these reasons hard to square. Why? Well, we withdrew 1,500 troops in Syria but we are adding 2,000 troops in Saudi Arabia. And all totaled, we have 60,000 troops in the Middle East.
Assuming for the sake of understanding that getting out of endless wars was the logic for the decision, why would we take action so precipitously? Why would we not warn our ally, the Kurds of what we were about to do? Why would we not give them time to also withdraw or perhaps to dig in to defend themselves? Clearly, the Turks had a heads up because they were able to start bombing within in mere hours.
I simply do not understand why the Administration did not explain in advance to Erdogan that it was unacceptable for Turkey to attack an American ally. Could we not insist that together we develop a transition plan that protects the Kurds, secures the ISIS prisoners, and meets the legitimate concerns of Turkey as well? Was there no chance for diplomacy? Are we so weak, and so inept diplomatically that Turkey forced the hand of the United States of America? Turkey?
We once abandoned a red line. Now, we have abandoned an ally.
SELLERS: There is a slightly — there is a chance that Tulsi [Gabbard] is not just working for the United States of America, but I digress.
RYAN: Wait a minute, what?
SELLERS: No, I firmly —
RYE: That’s a hell of an allegation.
SELLERS: That’s not just an allegations. I firmly believe that —
RYAN: Uh oh, messages is coming now!
SELLERS: No, yeah, watch the bots come on Twitter now! I firmly believe that Tulsi Gabbard stands on that stage and is the antithesis to what the other 11 individuals stand for, especially when it comes to issues such as foreign policy. There is no question, there is no question that Tulsi Gabbard, of all the 12, is a puppet for the Russian government.
RYAN: Whoa, whoa, that was strong.
CAMEROTA: How is there no question?
SELLERS: I think that you look at her relationship doing the bidding, her relationships and affection for people like Bashar al Assad, her admiring somebody we know to be a war criminal, propping them up. I think that those are questions that are going to have to be answered.
Those are the only questions the media ever ask her about!
She’s answered those questions a million damn times!
While Elizabeth Warren has her own undisclosed donors pitching her seemingly fully-scripted questions so she can respond with scripted zingers, Gabbard is always constantly asked why she loves Bashar al-Assad and opposed the homosexual agenda when she was a teenager.
Unfortunately, Gabbard seems to think it’s a good strategy to give in to the media’s bullying and has been flip-flopping all over the place to try and somehow stay in their good graces.
Most recently, she backed Nancy Pelosi’s Trump impeachment inquiry after first opposing it and now she’s been attacking Trump for “abandoning muh Kurds” (my words, not hers) and not pulling out of Syria in just the way she would like.
She could have had a serious impact on this race had she just stuck to her guns and went hard against the establishment (as Trump did during his presidential campaign) but she botched it with her endless flip-flopping and equivocating.
Her only chance at this point is to go nuclear during the upcoming Dem debate.

On Monday, ABC News got caught lying about having a video allegedly showing Turkish troops slaughtering Kurdish civilians in northern Syria, when, in fact, it was video from a gun range in Kentucky. Seemingly thinking a pair of weak apologies on Twitter were enough, the liberal broadcast network refused to correct the record and inform viewers on their journalistic malpractice during that evening’s World News Tonight.
[…] Later that evening, despite anchor David Muir dedicating five minutes and 28 seconds to the fighting in Syria, the network refused to acknowledge their misleading story and correct the record for their millions of viewers. And as the Examiner further reported:
[…] According to TVNewser, for the week of September 30, World News Tonight raked in 8.2 million viewers. For that same week, TVNewser found Good Morning America came in first with 3.7 million viewers. So, it’s likely that the show misled millions of people while a fraction of them saw the tweets. Let’s see if they’re saving the on-correction for Tuesday morning.
Nicholas Fondacaro noted Tuesday morning it has been over 24 hours without an on-air correction.
ABC News mislead millions with outright fake news and propaganda on two of their flagship programs but then “corrected” their propaganda with some tweets on the least popular of all the major social media sites.
If it wasn’t for Wojciech Pawelczyk catching this hoax and going viral, ABC News’ propaganda never would have been exposed and they’d probably still be airing the footage on all their other programs.
Incidentally, the Kurds we “abandoned” have since allied with Assad to fight against Turkey’s invasion.
Had they done this on day one rather than hold out for the US to reverse course to please neocons like Lindsey Graham they likely would not have suffered such massive losses from Turkey’s blitzkrieg.

“Former Vice President Biden is still facing criticism from President Trump over his son Hunter’s ties in the Ukraine. Does he have to respond to that tonight?,” co-host Anthony Mason asked the “CBS This Morning” panel on the Democrat debate Tuesday.
Biden “has to take the fight to Donald Trump,” said former Marco Rubio campaign adviser Terry Sullivan. “This is actually a huge opportunity that they’ve missed. You can either catch spears in politics or you can toss spears. Catching isn’t much fun.”

Mark Levin was eloquent and on fire last night on his show on FOX News ‘Life, Liberty, Levin”.
Past Presidents were given rights in past impeachment processes as Levin points out. Democrats have nothing so they have to have a kangaroo court where the President is not allowed to defend himself against false allegations.
WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHO THE PRESIDENT’S ACCUSER IS NOR ARE WE GOING TO BE INFORMED WHO IT IS!!!
President Trump retweeted Mark Levin’s comments on Monday morning.
