Longshot candidate Michael Bennet sees Russia, not China, as greater threat to US
June 28, 2019
Longshot White House candidate Michael Bennet – the senior U.S. senator from Colorado – drew criticism following Thursday’s second Democratic debate for asserting that Russia, not China, posed a greater foreign threat to the United States.
“Because of what they’ve done with our election,” Bennet argued, according to the Colorado Sun of Denver.
Joining Bennet on the debate stage in Miami were nine other candidates, including former Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California.
Prior to the release of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his Russia investigation, Bennet was a vocal in asserting that Russia worked to affect the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
