Days earlier, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accused Gabbard of being a Russian asset.
According to Amash, Clinton is actually the asset — President Donald Trump’s asset.
“The thing we know for sure is that Hillary Clinton is a Donald Trump asset,” he wrote.
The Michigan representative said that the 2016 Democratic nominee’s attacks drive potential voters away, pushing them toward Trump.
“Hillary does — and did — drive many people into the arms of Donald Trump. Her attack on Tulsi does likewise,” Amash said.
In his district, Amash explained, Trump gathered less votes than any Republican in modern times, and still managed to beat Clinton, because Democratic voters rejected her as a candidate.
“When I heard Hillary’s remarks, I knew exactly what the right would say: The left smears anyone they don’t like,” he wrote.
Amash concluded the series of tweets with a message for Democrats.
The Michigan congressman said that claims such as Clinton’s de-legitimize real concerns about Trump’s connections with Russia, helping the president make the claim that the entire premise of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation was nothing but a “hoax.”
“Recognize that this plays right into Trump’s hands; that it diminishes the legitimate inquiry into Russia; that it bolsters Trump’s ‘hoax’ nonsense.”
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, during a recent interview, Clinton — without offering any evidence to back up her shocking claims — accused Gabbard of being an asset of the Kremlin.
The former secretary of state said that the Hawaii representative is being “groomed” by Russia to run as a third-pary candidate and spoil the 2020 presidential election, helping Trump win again.
Amash is not the first prominent public figure to disagree with Clinton.

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang defended Gabbard as well, demanding that others show more respect for her, and pointing out that she is a combat veteran.
CNN’s Erin Burnett and Van Jones were even more direct in their criticism of Clinton.
Burnett accused the former secretary of state of spreading “her own Russia conspiracy theory,” and Jones — pointing out that Gabbard is a decorated war veteran — describing the accusations as disinformation.
The host said that she believes Clinton and others in her position should be more careful with their words, adding that Gabbard is being attacked “with a complete smear and no facts.”

Gabbard said she is running as a Democrat to take control back from “people like Hillary Clinton and the warmongering and corrupt powerful establishment.”
The Hawaii representative has long been one of the more controversial figures in Democratic politics, largely because of her unorthodox foreign policy views.
