Hillary Clinton backs out of DC event also set to include Tulsi Gabbard, Kirstjen Nielsen
[FOXNEWS] Crooked Hillary Clinton
...former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away...
has backed out of a Friday appearance at an event also scheduled to include Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard, among other guests, according to a report.

Word of Clinton's removal from the bill of Fortune magazine’s Most Powerful Women Summit came Thursday, the same day the former secretary of state sparked a clash by accusing Gabbard of being groomed by Russia to run as a third-party candidate for president in 2020.

The Hawaii congresswoman and combat veteran fired back in a scathing series of tweets later Thursday, challenging Clinton not to "hide behind your proxies" and join the presidential race "directly."

Slate.com reported that Clinton removed herself from the three-day summit due to a scheduling conflict. An unnamed source told the publication that Clinton decided not to participate in an act of protest against former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who was also scheduled to speak.

Nielsen, who resigned in April, oversaw the Trump administration’s controversial "zero tolerance" immigration policy, which resulted in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their families at the border. The policy was later rescinded.

More than 51,000 people signed a petition asking Fortune to pull Nielsen from the summit’s roster, Slate also reported. About 100 speakers were still scheduled to attend the summit as of Friday evening.

Gabbard and lawyer Anita Hill are among the more high-profile scheduled speakers, on a list that also includes business executives, journalists, scholars and some elected officials.

#1 So, being a paranoid - it's survival attribute for Jews, I'm asking: is this Hillary's way of promoting Tulsi?

#2 Tulsi is the enemy. She backed Sanders in 2016. Bill thinks she's cute. She's a veteran and an attractive woman who frequently speaks out regarding 'endless wars' aka the Deep State product line.

#3 Hilly was feeling bad about the Tulsi is a Russian asset thing. In her defence she was on second box of wine when she said it.

#6 The left/DS has moved away from calling anyone who disagrees or is a threat to them as Nazi to now calling them Russian assets. Isn't that a little schizophrenic and confused?
