“These people are sick; there’s something wrong with them,” President Donald Trump said Monday, commenting on Democrats like Hillary Clinton who go around accusing anyone they don't like of being Russian assets.
In an interview with Fox News Host Sean Hannity, Trump blasted Democrats’ “sick” efforts to smear their political opponents by calling them either agents or assets of Russia, as they did with Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation – and as 2016 Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has even begun doing to members of her own party:
“And it [Mueller’s investigation] did, it ended with a poor performance and this is after two years of an investigation where they spend $45 million or something like that, they had 2,500 subpoenas, 500 witnesses, all because, probably, Hillary Clinton said just like she did with [Democrat Hawaii Congresswoman] Tulsi Gabbard, just like she did with Jill Stein; she said, ‘Jill Stein is a Russian asset.’
“Now, I don't know Jill Stein. I know her as an environmentalist, okay, and probably a good woman, but the last thing that she is is a Russian asset. I don't know Tulsi Gabbard, but I know one thing: she is not an asset of Russia.
“These people are sick. There’s something wrong with them.”
“People would have realized that she’s crazy” back in 2016, if Clinton had called him a Russian agent during the campaign, Trump said:
“And, this was all a phony scam. And, then, you have Hillary Clinton saying, two days ago, ‘Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset’. And that Jill Stein is a Russian agent. And I said, wait a minute, it took me two and a half years. I wish she would have said that earlier because people would have realized she's crazy. She's crazy. But two and a half years, Sean, we went through this and it started before the election.”
