Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on the run. Democrats were just rocked by her move, which will send a ripple effect throughout the 2020 election.
After Clinton accused Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) of being a “Russian asset” who was being groomed “to be the third-party candidate” of choice for Russia, Gabbard challenged Clinton to a face-to-face meeting. It is not happening.
Clinton was scheduled to appear at Fortune magazine’s annual Most Powerful Women Summit, along with Gabbard and others, but the two-time presidential candidate has now backed out.
It is being explained away by the mainstream media as a “scheduling conflict,” but in the political world, it regularly means something more. Perhaps Clinton just didn’t want to be confronted by Gabbard in person.
Gabbard, who is running for the Democratic nomination, fired off a series of tweets after Clinton leveled the “Russian asset” accusation against her. “Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton,” she sarcastically quipped.
Gabbard continued: “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.”
