The Russian asset says what?
Courtesy of Mediaite:
Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has sent an official communication to Hillary Clinton — through her attorneys — demanding the 2016 Democratic nominee retract her comment on Gabbard and Russia.
“Your statement is defamatory, and we demand that you retract it immediately,” the letter reads.
“In making the statement, you knew it was false. Congresswoman Gabbard is not a Russian asset and is not being groomed by Russia,”the letter said. “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.”
Gabbard is also demanding that Clinton hold a press conference to “verbally retract” her remarks.
First off where does this bitch get off demanding anything from Hillary Clinton?
Secondly, Hillary did not mention her by name, and only responded to a question from NBC asking if it was a reference to Gabbard with “If the nesting doll fits..” which is actually pretty clever.
And thirdly being called a “Russian asset” does not necessarily mean that you are a double agent working direclty for the Kremlin, it can also mean you are a “useful idiot” whose actions benefit their agenda whether you know it or not.
Having said all of that Gabbard’s over the top reaction to this suggests to me that she may in fact be a double agent who is desperate to deflect attention from that possiblity.
Besides all Gabbard has to do to put all of this to rest is to not launch that third party candidacy which Hillary suggested the Russians want her to launch.
But of course we know she is probably going to do just that.
