On Saturday, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke defended fellow White House hopeful Tulsi Gabbard, The Hill reports via Twitter.
Gabbard is being accused by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of being a Russian asset — according to Clinton, the Kremlin is “grooming” Gabbard to run as a third-party candidate, to spoil the 2020 presidential election in order to help President Donald Trump.
Clinton made the remarks in a recent interview, without offering evidence to support her claim.
“Tulsi is not being groomed by anyone,” O’Rourke dismissed Clinton’s accusations.
“She is her own person,” he continued.
The Texas Democrat pointed out that Gabbard is a combat veteran, who still serves in the United States military, reminding reporters that she is also a sitting congresswoman, and a presidential candidate.
“Obviously has served this country, continues to serve this country in uniform, in Congress, as a candidate for presidency so I think those facts speak for themselves.”
