(Headline USA) Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used the Russian invasion of Ukraine to once again push the debunked Russia hoax, alleging that there are people “within our own country” who are “giving aid and comfort” to Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.
Clinton made the comment during an interview with MSNBC:
We have to make sure that within our own country, we are calling out people giving aid and comfort to Putin and siding with autocrats against the global cause of democracy. pic.twitter.com/6R11vmtkKP

Clinton helped orchestrate the Russian collusion witch hunt and accused Trump of working with Putin to steal the 2016 presidential election from her. Even after this hoax was debunked by former investigator Robert Mueller, and again by current special counsel John Durham, she has continued to falsely tie Trump to Putin.
Well, OK: You secretly created and funded the Russia collusion hoax, using an agent of a Russian oligarch, damaging our republic and national security and helping a foreign policy that has put us in a dangerous position Putin is taking advantage of. Consider yourself called out.

Other critics pointed out that Clinton’s criticisms of Putin carry little weight, considering her past ties to Russia. For example, she allegedly sold 20% of the U.S. uranium supply to Russia and used the funds to line the Clinton Foundation’s pockets.
An FBI informant connected to the sale testified before three congressional committees and told lawmakers that Russia donated millions of dollars to the Clinton’s charitable efforts with the expectation that she would encourage the Obama administration to be friendlier toward Russia.
She did, indeed, advocate for “more flexibility” with Russia as secretary of state, and regularly met with and entertained Russian officials. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, even spoke alongside several Russian officials at different events.
How about calling out @BarackObama @JoeBiden and @HillaryClinton for their “reset” policy with Putin and Russia?!? https://t.co/EY8ZOMCiGm pic.twitter.com/f9PIkyNwEl

You made a “reset” months after Russia invaded Georgia.
Your foundation got millions from Russia-gov-backed investors who needed the Obama Admin/you to sign off on the sale of Uranium 1.
Your COS at State got paid while at State from a guy who was key at the foundation.
