(Newser) – Hillary Clinton on Monday jumped into the latest President Trump-Russia fray. "Like I said: A puppet," Clinton tweeted, alongside a clip of her exchange with Trump during the final 2016 presidential debate in which she said Russian President Vladimir Putin would "rather have a puppet as president of the United States." Her tweet is apparently in reference to the recent New York Times report on an FBI investigation, opened after Trump fired director James Comey, into whether Trump (knowingly or unknowingly) was working on Russia's behalf. (Trump on Monday answered what he said was the "most insulting" question he's ever been asked.)
