    It's almost like it's a multi-pronged problem but I understand if that's not sufficiently narrow and specific for your convenience and blinkered pov.

    Ooooh, one decent position. Clearly she should be the nominee for that.

    You know who the smartest people are on this Gabbard/Hillary thing?

    Biden and Warren for staying the hell out of that mess.

    As far as I can tell, I think Booker is staying out of it, aside from his Side-eye gif.

    Haven't seen Castro or Klobachar comment on it, though I could be wrong.

    "Nominee"...

    No one is saying that.

    Someone is saying that.

    Watching Castro avoid giving an answer was the one good thing that came of this.

    It was hilarious.

    It's not, though, unless you have a dumb idea of what constitutes an 'asset'.

    Everyone Is a Russian Asset
    The #Resistance has come up with all sorts of words for such fifth-columnists and deviationists: they are “false-balancers” or “false equivalencers,” “neo-Naderites,” “purity-testers,” “both-sidesists,” “whataboutists,” “horseshoe theorists,” “Russia skeptics” or “Russia denialists,” and “anti-anti-Trumpers.” Such heretics are all ultimately seen as being on “team Putin.”

    This witch-hunting insanity isn’t just dangerous, it’s a massive breach from reality. Trump’s campaign was a clown show. He had almost no institutional backing. His “ground game” was nonexistent: his “campaign” was a TV program based almost wholly around unscripted media appearances. Trump raised just over half the $1.2 billion Hillary pulled in (making him the first presidential candidate dating back to 1976 to win with a funds deficit). He didn’t prepare a victory speech, for the perfectly logical reason that he never expected to win.

    Even if you posit the most elaborate theories of Russian interference (which I don’t, but of course I’m denialist scum), what happened in 2016 was still almost entirely a domestic story, with Trump benefiting from long-developing public rejection of the political establishment.

    Rather than confront the devastating absurdity of defeat before an ad-libbing game show host who was seemingly trying to lose – a black comedy that is 100% in America’s rich stupidity tradition – Democrats have gone all-in on this theory of foreign infiltration. House speaker Nancy Pelosi even said as much in a White House meeting, pointing at Trump and proclaiming: “All roads lead to Putin.”

    I think she's more of a useful idiot than a devoted asset.

    A useful idiot is still an asset to Russian interests. It doesn't mean she's having clandestine meeting s with Russian agents in Trump tower or something.

    Trump Continues To Defend Doral Choice Even After Giving In

    The president blamed Democrats and the media after he canceled his plans to host the G-7 summit at his personal property. Jesus! What a fucking whiner! Meanwhile....

    Trump’s Elaborate Scheme To Get Around His Emoluments Problem Proves He Has One

    The White House planned to solicit private donations to pay Trump’s Doral resort because government funds are prohibited. But he’s taken those funds all along. The Grifter-in-Chief continues doing what he does best: fleecing the public and lining his pockets.

    Trump Viewed Ukraine As Adversary, Not Ally, Witnesses Say

    Behind closed doors, Trump has made his views on Ukraine clear: “They tried to take me down.” What? WHAT?

    You are misusing or misunderstanding the term asset here. It's a technical term meaning someone they can use wittingly or unwittingly to their advantage. "Useful idiot" is more colloquial term.
