Hillary Clinton gave an interview to Howard Stern on Wednesday where she implicated Bernie Sanders into her Russian conspiracy theory that she credits with costing her the 2016 presidential election.

While elaborating on her conspiracy theory of how Russia stole the election from her, the two-time presidential loser told Howard Stern that the Russians also wanted to do everything they could to help elect Bernie Sanders. 

"You know, basically, [the Russians] were like, hey, let's do everything we can to elect Donald Trump," Hillary explained to Stern. "Those are words. And they also said Bernie Sanders, but, you know, that's for another day."

"Do we hate Bernie Sanders?" Stern felt compelled to ask. 

"No. I don't hate anybody," Clinton responded. 

"Bernie could have endorsed you quicker," Stern prodded. 

"He could have. He hurt me. There's no doubt about it," Clinton admitted.

"Have you ever spoken to Bernie about that?" Stern continued. 

"No," Hillary answered.  

"Do you ever talk to him?" Stern asked. 

"I don't talk to him," Hillary said. "I mean we did when he finally endorsed me and all that."

"But you're upset with him," Stern followed up. 

"No. I'm disappointed," Hillary explained. "Disappointed. Ok. And I hope he doesn't do it again to whoever gets the nomination. Once is enough. We have to join forces."

In October, Clinton accused Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard of being a "Russian asset," who Clinton believes the Russians are now grooming to run as a third-party candidate in 2020. In the same interview, Hillary accused Jill Stein, the Green Party's nominee for president in 2016, of being a Russian asset who helped cause Clinton's loss to President Trump in 2016. 

Not sure how implicating other candidates into her Russian collusion theory helps the Democrats "join forces," or the fact that Clinton sees no path forward for Bernie Sanders to clinch the Democratic nomination.

Maybe Hillary knows which candidate the DNC is in cahoots with this election cycle, like they had been with her campaign in 2016. There's the real collusion Democrats should worry about.
