Who’s a Russian Puppet?

In the frenzy of the Presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton singled out a Democratic candidate for a special attack: “She’s the favorite of the Russians. I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’re grooming her to be the third party candidate.” With the vote split, that would likely throw the election to Republican Donald Trump.

Here Comes Election 2020
