The New York Times was caught quietly editing an article which sparked a massive quarrel between Democrat presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard and Hillary Clinton.

The article from last Friday, which initially had Clinton accusing Russia of “grooming” Gabbard, now claims Hillary accused “Republicans” of grooming her for a third-party run.

The edit was caught by independent journalist Tim Pool, who called the NYT out on Twitter, pointing out the “stealth edit” was done without notice and with no editor’s note or correction to accompany it.

Only after Pool’s tweet went viral did the NYT add a lengthy “correction” to the bottom of the article defending their silent edits and insisting Hillary was referring to Republicans.

The NYT later issued a tweet claiming they corrected the article and deleted a past tweet.

While the NYT is attempting to backtrack from its initial reporting, in the following podcast clip Clinton can clearly be heard accusing Gabbard of being a “favorite of the Russians,” along with Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who Clinton said is “also a Russian asset.”

The story went on to be picked up by nearly every single media outlet and was reported as Hillary claiming the Russians were using Tulsi to meddle in the 2020 election.

The headline also provoked a tremendous backlash from Gabbard, who took to Twitter almost immediately to challenge Hillary’s accusations.

“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain,” Gabbard tweeted last Friday, challenging her to “Join the race directly.”

Gabbard also ripped into Clinton during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“Ultimately she knows she can’t control me,” Gabbard told Tucker last Friday.

“I stand against everything that she represents and if I’m elected president, if I’m the Democratic nominee and elected president she will not be able to control me. She won’t be able to manipulate me. She won’t be able to continue to work from behind the curtains, to continue these regime change wars that have been so costly.”
