Hillary Clinton keeps dropping just enough hints about 2020 that pundits believe she will enter the race if Joe Biden continues to falter.
But now Hillary Clinton is facing one giant obstacle to those plans.
And that’s because Hillary Clinton got hit with some bad news that threatens to upend the Democrats’ plan for victory in 2020.
Hillary Clinton made waves last month when she accused Hawaii Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D) of being a Russian asset because Gabbard made opposition to foreign wars supported by Clinton the centerpiece of her campaign.
Clinton — who sees Russian agents hiding under every bed — continues to promote conspiracy theories about the Russians allegedly grooming Gabbard to run as a third party candidate to help Donald Trump win a second term.
Gabbard — who served heroically in the armed forces — fired off a letter to Clinton demanding she retract her statement or face a lawsuit.
Presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard has sent an official communication to Hillary Clinton — through her attorneys — demanding the 2016 Democartic 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…”
Gabbard is slowly gaining some traction in the Democrat primary.
She spoke out against impeachment and expressed opposition to the war mongering of Hillary Clinton and other top Democrats.
Establishment Democrats are terrified she will build a following around foreign policy like former Texas Congressman Ron Paul did in his 2008 and 2012 Presidential campaigns.
Paul’s supporters rejected the eventual establishment-backed GOP nominee’s John McCain and Mitt Romney in large part because of their support for the disastrous Hillary Clinton/George Bush foreign policy “consensus” in Washington, D.C.
Democrats are worried that as hard feelings grow between Gabbard and the rest of the party establishment, a similar scenario could play out in 2020.
