  Running for president, Gabbard faces challenge in Hawaii State Sen. Kai Kahele, a fellow Democrat, is running for the presidential candidate's U.S. House seat.HONOLULU — As Rep. Tulsi Gabbard travels throughout Iowa and New Hampshire trying to kickstart her Democratic presidential bid, she is facing a serious challenge back home in Hawaii for her U.S. House seat.

Hillary Clinton has hinted that, of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, Tulsi Gabbard is Former US Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has returned to warn that Russia, which interfered in her 2016 loss , may attempt to recruit a fringe Democrat for a

Just when you thought the Democratic primary race could not get any nuttier (Bill de Blasio’s hapless quest sets a high bar), along comes Hillary Clinton accusing Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of being a Russian agent. Or, words to that effect.

More accurately, in a podcast hosted by former Obama apparatchik David Plouffe, Clinton said candidate Gabbard is “the favorite of the Russians” and suggested Moscow was supporting her bid through fake social media postings.

Hillary Clinton implies Gabbard is favored by Russia

  Hillary Clinton implies Gabbard is favored by Russia Hillary Clinton appears to call Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard "the favorite of the Russians" in a recent interview.

But last week, another aspect was revealed, and it shows us what the stakes are in this fight. Day after day on Capitol Hill, we saw a parade of bureaucrats stepping out of the shadows to attack Liz Peek : Do Hillary Clinton ' s Tulsi Gabbard attacks signal another presidential run – and loss ?

Hillary Clinton has said Russia, which interfered in the US election she lost in 2016, is “grooming” a Democratic candidate for a third-party run next year, signalling she believes congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard could fill the role. The goal of this would essentially be to divide the US electorate and help

Since Gabbard is only polling at 1.2 percent, according to the Real Clear Politics average, Russia doesn’t seem to be helping much. More important, there is zero evidence that any such meddling has occurred.

What on earth could have prompted such an outlandish charge? We can start with Clinton’s enduring belief that the Russians were behind her 2016 defeat, in addition to James Comey, misogyny, Bernie Sanders, the Electoral College, the media and innumerable other villains. Hillary has never owned up to having been a widely distrusted, politically inept and arrogant candidate who simply lost an election.

It’s unfortunate, because her inability to take responsibility for the unexpected 2016 loss has helped divide the country and has also made her a laughing stock. Unlike most former candidates, Hillary has seen her approval ratings drop since her campaign, and especially among Democrats. In September 2018, two years after the election, Clinton’s approval stood at 36 percent, an all-time low, and seven points below her ratings on the cusp of the 2016 vote. Among Democrats, her approval was down 11 points.

Tulsi Gabbard should take Hillary Clinton’s 'Russian asset' smear as a compliment

  Tulsi Gabbard should take Hillary Clinton’s 'Russian asset' smear as a compliment Hillary Clinton will go down in history as one of the worst presidential candidates of all time. So if the failed 2016 nominee is bashing one of the 2020 Democratic hopefuls, that’s a sign the candidate is actually doing something right. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Clinton has a recurring theme of childishly decrying everything she doesn’t like as “Russian meddling.

Hillary Clinton has hinted that, of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, Tulsi Gabbard is "the favorite of the Russians." Clinton stopped short of mentioning Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard by name during an appearance on the Campaign HQ With David Plouffe podcast released late Thursday.

Thank you Hillary Clinton ,” Gabbard tweeted late on Friday afternoon. “You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of And just to make sure she finds yet another scapegoat for her loss , Clinton also accused 2016 Green Party nominee, Jill Stein, who ran

After 17 years of being voted the most admired woman in the country, Hillary has fallen behind Michelle Obama and is tied with Melania Trump. Boy, that must rankle.

Blame her interminable and whiny book, endless embarrassing speaking tours meant to keep her in the public eye and fluff up her already-copious bank account, and renewed scrutiny of the Clinton Foundation, which, not surprisingly, deflated as donors disappeared.

But mainly, blame her inability to move on, which has prompted her peculiar attack on Gabbard. The animus between the two is not new; in 2016, Gabbard committed the unforgivable sin of endorsing Bernie Sanders. At the time, Gabbard was vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee, which has been accused of tipping the primary contest to Hillary. Her apostasy, consequently, was profound.

Gabbard has also challenged Hillary, and the Democratic establishment, on foreign policy. When the Iraq war veteran came out in favor of Bernie, Gabbard described Hillary as someone who “will lead us into more interventionist wars of regime change.”

Gabbard fundraises off Clinton attack: 'I challenge her' to 'face me directly'

  Gabbard fundraises off Clinton attack: 'I challenge her' to 'face me directly' Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is asking supporters to donate to her presidential campaign and calling on Hillary Clinton to "face her directly" in the 2020 Democratic primary. "Hillary Clinton accused Tulsi Gabbard — a combat veteran, soldier and Major in the Army National Guard — of being 'groomed' to be a 'Russian asset,'" reads a fundraising email sent by Gabbard's campaign on Saturday."Tulsi fights back and demands Hillary join the race and face her directly.

After the Tulsi vs Clinton feud went viral, Clinton ' s spokesman said she was talking about Republicans. See a timeline and updates on the feud. Hillary Clinton appears to suggest Russians are 'grooming' Tulsi Gabbard for third-party run .

Hillary Clinton has claimed a Democrat presidential candidate is being "groomed" by the Kremlin to run as an independent in 2020. In an astonishing attack on Tulsi Gabbard , a congresswoman from Hawaii, Mrs Clinton suggested Russia would use her to damage the Democrats' chances of taking

Gabbard has fired back at Clinton’s Russia comments, calling her the “queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long….”

Gabbard claims her camp has detected a “concerted campaign to destroy my reputation” and now believes that Hillary, “through her proxies and powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose” is behind that effort.

The assertion seems far-fetched; why would Hillary Clinton bother to take down a fellow Democrat who is so far behind the pack?

Maybe because in her bitterness Hillary cannot endure anyone else – and especially another female – campaigning and possibly winning in 2020.

Gabbard has suggested as much, tweeting “It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me… Join the race directly.”

Some have speculated that Hillary is itching to throw her hat in the ring, hopeful a third campaign proves the charm. Like many Democrats, she may consider Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who is quickly becoming the favorite, too extreme to win a national election against Donald Trump.

'Hillary's gone crazy': Trump knocks Clinton for 'Russian asset' jab at Gabbard

  'Hillary's gone crazy': Trump knocks Clinton for 'Russian asset' jab at Gabbard President Trump slammed Hillary Clinton for insinuating that Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard and former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein are "Russian" assets."So now Crooked Hillary is at it again! She is calling Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard 'a Russian favorite,' and Jill Stein 'a Russian asset,'" he tweeted Saturday night. "As you may have heard, I was called a big Russia lover also (actually, I do like Russian people. I like all people!).

Hillary Clinton suggested that Russians are "grooming" a 2020 Democratic candidate, implicitly referencing Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard without directly naming her. Gabbard has often been criticized for her seeming support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, including meeting with him and

So seeing Gabbard go directly after Hillary Clinton after her debate performance the other evening — Tulsi Gabbard (@ TulsiGabbard ) October 18, 2019. There is so much goodness to unpack in The Democratic presidential candidate said the blood of her “brothers and sisters in uniform” killed in Iraq

In a recent interview with PBS’ Judy Woodruff, Clinton said,  "So maybe there does need to be a re-match. I mean, obviously I can beat him again." She later said she was joking.

Recently, baited to jump in by President Trump on Twitter Hillary responded “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”

Before she enters the race, Hillary should review what voters are saying about another run. A recent Rasmussen poll shows that fully 71 percent of voters say she should not run, including 58 percent of her own party. That’s not a great starting point.

Though Hillary is quite positive she would win, suggesting in a CBS interview that “there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again,” the Rasmussen survey tells a different story.

In that poll, she ties Trump in a head-to-head match-up. But remember that on the eve of the 2016 election the polling was unequivocally in her favor. At that time The Daily Beast posted a jubilant column, “Hillary Clinton Leads All Final Polls,” noting a Monmouth poll had the former Secretary of State up by 6 points, while a tracking poll by ABC News and the Washington Post had her ahead by 4 points. It may be, given the apparent bias in Trump surveys, that running even is not good enough.

Three other findings should give her pause. The first is that in that imaginary contest, Clinton wins only 60 percent of the black vote. In 2016, she walked away with 88 percent of that vote. That possible leakage of black votes, which I’ve noted before, is a real danger sign for Hillary, and for Democrats.

Second, only 42 percent of those surveyed think the country would be better off today if Clinton had been elected. Fully 48 percent disagree. That’s an astonishing conclusion, given the daily battering the president receives from the media and his low job approval ratings.

Finally, only 54 percent of Democrats think Hillary won the nomination in 2016 fairly. Imagine the reaction is she was to jump in today, or if she were to be nominated by a deadlocked convention. The remaining dozen or so candidates, and their supporters, would erupt; most likely, a great many would stay home.

It’s time for Hillary to retire to the sidelines. Stop embarrassing Democrats, and herself.

Tulsi Gabbard says she wants to defeat the 'Bush-Clinton doctrine' on foreign policy .
"Those who follow the Bush-Clinton doctrine believe the only way to interact with other nations is by bombing them or starving them with draconian sanctions," Gabbard wrote.She starts by writing, “Hillary Clinton emerged recently to claim, with no basis in fact, that I am being ‘groomed’ by the Russian government to undermine America.
