    From Matt Taibbi:

    Everyone Is a Russian Asset

    “[Jill Stein’s] also a Russian asset… Yeah, she’s a Russian asset — I mean, totally. They know they can’t win without a third-party candidate.”



    She went on to talk about Donald Trump:


    “I don’t know what Putin has on him, whether it’s both personal and financial … I assume it is.”

    Has Hillary Clinton wen't a bit nuts or has she went a bit Trump?

    She is maybe being clever. I found the Russia-Trump stuff quite compelling and I'm a (somewhat gullible) Scotsman who found the Trump win utterly hilarious. A lot of people buy into it. Maybe this is how she plans on consolidating support for another run?

    Maybe I'm reading too much into this. I'm bored.

    Apparently Hillary has a book to sell.
    The Book of Gutsy Women
    Just needs to say stuff to get the attention of the news media.

    I was laughing my *** off when he won. I didn't think he had a chance to win as he was not the status quo. Clinton lost an easy win. The shocked faces on TV were hilarious as well.

    This could be a way to send out "feelers" but I think a large part of the population in general does not want her to run again nor will support her. At this point she would just be the one that lost to Trump (black mark) that will need to copy the policy of the front-runners. She brings nothing new and a lot of baggage.

    If it happened the debates will be a comedy special.

    Nah

    I don't think Trump can take the credit for that....

    I laughed til my face hurt every time anyone mentioned the result for about a week after. Then I got scared he was as bad as people were making out.

    Fortunately the President's hands are tied by the other two branches of government. Most of Trump's attempts to make changes have failed in the courts.

    I'm not greatly worried about who becomes president. I'm more worried if one party or the other takes complete power over all three branches.

    Democrats have a tendency of project the very things they have done. They accuse others of the very things they did as a way to deflect the blame away from themselves.

    For example, Putin and Russians gave the Clinton Foundation over $100 million after the Uranium One deal. Even if we assume the uranium deal was done by the book, and was not part of a quid pro quo, such a large donation to any charity, opened doors and gave a lot of personal access to Putin the Humanitarian.

    If this was quid pro quo, and the $100M plus was the price to get the Clintons behind the deal, then the Clintons demonstrated they have a price at which they will sell out the country.

    Hillary and the Democrats have been calling Putin and the Russians the worse enemies, since 2016, yet why did they take money from our worse enemy? Putin the Humanitarian knows things about the Clintons, due to his personal access, which is why the Democrats had to discredit Putin early in Trumps term, and project their own personalized Putin collusion, onto Trump.

    If you asked Putin what would have been the best outcome for the 2016 election, he would have said for the US government to be paralyzed, and the country deeply divided on the brink of a civil war. The Democrats and fake news followed orders and almost gave Putin his wildest dream. Trump has been the one who has kept business and the country going in spite of the Democrats. I wonder if the Clintons have paid their debt to Putin, or do they still owe even more? Comrade Hillary appears to be projecting and still paying back.

    A third party candidate could be a Russian asset if the election is that close, the more votes for the 'asset' the less for the dems. I don't think Clinton meant that anyone was knowingly being 'groomed' to favor Russia.

    Hillary needs to shut up and retire from public life with Bill, and both of them should just go be grandparents. That's the the dignified thing to do at this point. She has a legacy to be proud of so she needs to stop attempting to tarnish it.

    Hillary is a vile sack of venomous worm excrement. She offended me and every veteran in this country by accusing Major Gabbard of a crime that is punishable with death with NO evidence whatsoever. Shame on all the other Democratic candidates who are silent about this.



    It's amazing to me that Tulsi Gabbard has to go on Fox News to get a fair interview. And Tucker Carlson of all people has always given her the mic and a platform to speak her mind.

    Clinton was still the worse option.

    I am giving him credit. After all Clinton was babbling about "accepting the results of an election" and "threat to democracy". Now she rejects the election results thus by her own standard is a threat to democracy

    Yeah...I meant she had a head start in the crazy race before Trump even showed up.

    More so she ran in 2008 for the nomination so already had an established base. Trump is a black sheep and she still lost.
