On Friday night, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang defended fellow candidate Tulsi Gabbard, after Hillary Clinton accused Gabbard of being a Russian asset.

In a tweet, Yang stated, "Tulsi Gabbard deserves much more respect and thanks than this. She literally just got back from serving our country abroad." 

Gabbard is a veteran of the Iraq War who serves in the Hawaii Army National Guard. She recently took two weeks off the campaign trail to attend an active duty joint-training exercise in Indonesia. She is the first female combat veteran to run for president. 

In a recent podcast, Hillary Clinton accused Gabbard of being a Russian asset. Gabbard responded to the accusation on Twitter, calling Clinton "the queen of warmongers," and daring Clinton to enter the presidential race directly. 

When Hillary Clinton accused President Trump of Russain collusion, Democrats and the media demanded an investigation, which taxpayers shelled out nearly $32 million dollars for. It's interesting to see when Democrats will defend those accused by Hillary and when they won't.
