Hillary Clinton's outrageous comments about Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, as bizarre as they were, reflect an underlying rot in the party shaping its approach to the 2020 election. If it continues, it threatens to undermine a promising, positive shift initiated by President Trump, away from the unilateralism of London-directed American neocons, which has been responsible for two decades of American wars in the Middle East, wars which have been fully backed by Clinton and her allies. Her loss to Donald Trump in 2016 became the trigger for her increasingly unhealthy public obsession with Russia and its President Vladimir Putin, and his alleged control over Trump. But that obsession predated her election defeat, going back to her time as Secretary of State, when she engaged in open meddling in Russian elections in 2011, as well as her support for the bloody coup in Libya, also in 2011, and promotion of the violent civil war in Syria, both countries she described as assets of Russia. Further, it was her campaign which hired Fusion GPS to do "operation research" to use in the campaign against Trump, which produced the fabricated dossier of former MI6 operative Christopher Steele, the basis for claims that Russia "meddled" in the election on Trump's behalf.
