Hillary Clinton has directly labeled 2016 Green Party nominee Jill Stein a “Russian asset,” and indirectly suggested the same is true of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii).

The 2016 Democratic presidential candidate during an appearance on the Campaign HQ podcast Thursday said she believes Russia in 2020 is going to “do third-party again,” meaning push a third party candidate to help President Trump, The Washington Post reports. The previous time she’s referring to is Stein’s 2016 campaign.

“She’s a Russian asset,” Clinton said of Stein. “I mean, totally.”

A report prepared for the Senate Intelligence Committee in 2018 concluded Russia’s Internet Research Agency troll farm in 2016 pushed “pro-Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein content,” The Hill reports.

This comment came after Clinton suggested there’s an unnamed candidate in the field who Russians are grooming to run third party, clearly talking about Gabbard. Earlier this week, The New York Times wrote in reference to Gabbard that some “worry about supportive signs from online bot activity and the Russian news media.”
