People are still reacting to Hillary’s insane smear of Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein as “assets” of Russia.
Over the weekend, Jill Stein appeared on CNN and had some pretty choice words for Hillary.
‘I am not a Russian spy’: Jill Stein slams Clinton’s accusations
Former 2016 Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein slammed Hillary Clinton’s accusations that she and 2020 Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard are Russian assets, calling Clinton’s comments a “wild and insulting theory.”
“I am not a Russian spy,” Stein said Saturday on CNN’s “Smerconish.” “I think this is a completely unhinged conspiracy theory for which there is absolutely no basis in fact. Not for myself and not for Tulsi Gabbard. I think it’s really outrageous that Hillary Clinton is trying to promote this crazy idea.”
She added, “You know, you can’t just slander people. You have to present some basis and fact.”
Speaking on a podcast Thursday, Clinton accused Stein of being a “Russian asset.” She also claimed the Russians are currently “grooming” a Democrat running in the 2020 presidential primary to run as a third-party candidate and champion their interests. Though she never names Gabbard, Clinton’s comments appeared to be aimed at the Hawaii congresswoman.
Stein told CNN on Saturday that Clinton’s remarks “speaks to Hillary’s need to try to explain, perhaps to herself, why her campaign was not successful.”

Here’s the longer version:
Even Trump was defending Jill Stein:
Crooked Hillary Clinton just called the respected environmentalist and Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, a “Russian Asset.” They need a Green Party more than ever after looking at the Democrats disastrous environmental program!

So now Crooked Hillary is at it again! She is calling Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard “a Russian favorite,” and Jill Stein “a Russian asset.” As you may have heard, I was called a big Russia lover also (actually, I do like Russian people. I like all people!). Hillary’s gone Crazy!

Hillary really is an awful person, isn’t she?
