The Democratic backlash against Hillary Clinton continued this week after she labeled Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard a “Russian asset,” with Sen. Bernie Sanders calling his former political opponent’s comments “outrageous.”
“Tulsi Gabbard has put her life on the line to defend this country. People can disagree on issues, but it is outrageous for anyone to suggest that Tulsi is a foreign asset,” posted Sanders on social media.

Gabbard released a fiery video in response to Clinton’s comments earlier this week; calling Hillary the “queen of warmongers.”
“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. 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. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you,” posted Gabbard on social media.
… powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.
