“I am not a Russian spy,” Stein said on CNN’s “Smerconish.” ADVERTISEMENTStein continued, “I think this is a completely unhinged conspiracy theory for which there is absolutely no basis in fact, not for myself and not for Tulsi Gabbard. I think it’s really outrageous that Hillary Clinton is trying to promote this crazy idea.” On a podcast Thursday, Clinton called Stein a “Russian asset.” The former first lady and New York Senator also said that one of the 2020 Democratic candidates was the “favorite of the Russians” to win the 2020 election. While Clinton never mentioned Gabbard by name, it was clear that she was referring to the Hawaii congresswoman, who has been repeatedly accused of having ties to the Russian government. Later in the interview, Stein went on the offensive herself, saying that Clinton’s comments show “Hillary’s need to try to explain, perhaps to herself, why her campaign was not successful.” “People really wanted change and unfortunately believed Donald Trump’s lies that he was going to bring change,” Stein added. Stein received nearly 1.5 million votes in the 2016 election, but according to a slew of congressional reports, Russia’s election meddling contributed to that total, CNN noted. Per CNN, a Senate Intelligence Committee report showed that social media support of Stein was part of Russia’s interference strategy. Stein traveled to Russia in 2015 and attended a dinner hosted by RT, a Russian television network, and was photographed at the same table as Russian President Vladimir PutinVladimir Vladimirovich PutinRepublicans release newly declassified intelligence document on FBI source Steele Feehery: How Trump can turn the protests into parades dedicated to making America great again You may pay more at the pump, as OPEC+ cuts oil production MORE.
