HILLARY CLINTON/RUSSIA/UKRAINE/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “Appearing on ‘Morning Joe,’ [Hillary] Clinton accused Trump of ‘giving aid and comfort’ to Putin amid the ongoing invasion of Ukraine and claimed Republicans were playing into the latter’s ambitions to ‘undermine democracy’ by viewing him as a strong leader who aligned with their values.

‘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, 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,’ Clinton told host Mika Brzezinski, referencing Trump earlier this week calling Putin a ‘genius’ and ‘very savvy’ for how he was handling Ukraine.”
