Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) clashed with The View co-host Joy Behar on Wednesday morning after repeating accusations from Hillary Clinton that she is a "Russian asset." 

Behar said, "Well, Hillary Clinton started it, and then you shot back at her, boy. You called her the queen of warmongers."

Gabbard responded, "You doubled down -- unfortunately you double down on the baseless accusations that she made that strikes at the core of who I am. I'm a soldier. Because of the attacks on 9/11, I enlisted in the military to go after and defeat and destroy the evil that visited us on that day. I have served now for over 16 years, deployed twice to the Middle East during the height of the war where every single day I saw first hand, the terribly high human cost. It's why I ran for Congress."
