In October, Hillary Clinton said in a podcast that Russia “got their eye on somebody who’s currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate.”
Although HRC never mentioned Gabbard by name, CNN asked her spokesperson, NickMerrill, if HRC had directed her comments towards Gabbard. Merrill replied, “If the nesting doll fits.” He later tweeted that Clinton had referred to the GOP as opposed to Russia in her podcast comments.
In the following tweet, Gabbard’s attorney demanded that HRC retract her comments about Gabbard, hold a press conference, and issue statements on Twitter and to major news outlets.
HRC has not responded.
