Hillary Clinton Accuses Trump of ‘Giving Aid and Comfort to Putin’

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has claimed that President Donald Trump and Republicans are responsible for Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Clinton repeatedly said during a Friday MSNBC interview that Trump and some members of the GOP were “giving aid and comfort to Vladimir Putin.”

She appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to weigh in on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine but used the opportunity to attack her political rivals.

Hillary’s comments came as Putin issued a statement where he hinted at targeting civilians.

Russia is alleging that Ukraine’s army is hiding assets among the civilian population.

Moscow has used the same excuse to terrorize civilians with indiscriminate bombings in the past, however.

“We have to also make sure that within our own country we are calling out those people who are giving aid and comfort to Vladimir Putin,” Clinton said.

“Who are talking about what a genius he is, what a smart move it is, who are unfortunately being broadcast by Russian media, not only inside Russia but in Europe to demonstrate the division within our own country.”

Earlier this week, Trump commented that Putin was “very savvy” in his use of propaganda to push for his invasion of Ukraine.

However, Trump noted that he would never have allowed Putin to invade while he was in the White House.

“This is heartbreaking, but it’s also dangerous, and I think it’s time for what’s left of the Republican Party that has any common sense not just to say, OK, go help defend Ukraine against Putin, but to stand against those people in politics and government, in the media and elsewhere in our own country who are literally giving aid and comfort to an enemy of freedom and democracy,”

“It can’t continue because it plays right into the ambitions of not just Putin, but also President Xi of China to undermine democracy, to literally divide and conquer the West without ever invading us, but by setting us against each other,” she said.

“Will there be the crazies who keep yelling and screaming and talking the stuff they do on one of your competitor networks?” Clinton said taking a swipe at Fox News.

“Of course. But let’s narrow that audience by getting voices out there that have credibility.”

“They could not be more mistaken.

“This man, he takes no prisoners, he kills them, he poisons them, he imprisons them,” she said.

She gave Biden some advice as well:

“I would hope that the administration and European allies and others would move even more quickly to impose sanctions, not only on the economy of Russia, but also on individual actors within that economy—all the way up to Putin.

“When push comes to shove, people are in NATO because they need collective defense against a resurgent Russian imperialism,” she said.
